And They All Stayed Off His Lawn

Henry 'Pop' Brown dies in Fort Lauderdale, leaving 379 grandchildren - South Florida "Henry Brown Sr., who started life in the cotton fields of rural Georgia, came to Fort Lauderdale in 1952 to grow his family, practice various trades and preach the glories of education. He did those things exceedingly well.

By the time 'Pop,' as he was called, died at his home Friday at age 98, he had seen the birth of 10 children and a school's worth of younger offspring: 61 grandchildren, 130 great-grandchildren, 162 great-great-grandchildren, and 26 great-great-great-grandchildren."
