    How do I find my maternal grandmothers parents name?

      II’ve searched thru Ancestry and Family Search looking for any records for my maternal Grandmother Maggie Brown (Landy) information. Born 6/1897 in Reidsville NC  and died in Portsmouth Va 3/1934
      Her mother was Rebecca Brown or Mary Rebecca Brown from Reidsville, NC 1865-1917 Reidsville NC but I can’t find any information about her father’s whereabouts. Rebecca Brown’s parents may be listed as Mary Whitsett and Jere or Jake Brown also from Reidsville, NC
      Maggie may have married someone before William Artis Landy, because she also had a son named Earnest Brown ( Landy was listed on a 1930 census in Portsmouth Va) but I was told he may not have been Mr. Landy’s son.
      Any information of Maggie’s parents, previous marriages and her son’s Earnest father and whereabouts or death would be a help. Thank You!
