Rosella Hoover Brown

Michael, I am the ggrandaughter of Rosella Hoover Brown and Fred Brown. My grandparents are Goldie May Brown Law & James William Law. Rosella's family has been really hard to research & I for a long time, I was researching the wrong Rosella's family who lived not far from our Hoovers. Mom used to tell me that Rosella had native American blood & that there was an Indiana connection. I don't know about all that but my mother had olive skin, coal black hair and dark brown did one of my brothers and my sister. My other brother and I had brown eyes, brown hair and light complexion. Mom knew little about Rosella except that she died young and Fred remarried. I don't have my records in front of me but I know about the Bogans. I just don't know much about Fred and Rosella's lives and nothing about Rosella's parents and back further. I also know that per Rosella's death certificate that "abortion" was the cause of death whether it be spontanious abortion or induced. I have a copy of a picture of Rosella. Just wish I knew who & inherited any family pictures & info. Would appreciate any help from you. I am on My email is
