Notes:

"Sidney B., son of George F. and Louisa (Farley) Browning, was born in Oilville, Logan county, West Virginia, October 13, 1873. He received his education in the public schools of his native county, and at an early date began clerking in a general store. In 1902 he began a retail business for himself in his native city which he continued until 1906, when he organized the Guyan Supply Company of Logan with a capital of twenty-five thousand dollars. Mr. Browning is one of the heaviest stockholders in the company, and has served as its manager to date. His brother, Thomas E., is also a stockholder and vice-president of the company, and Mr. J. R. Godby, of Logan, is its president. The company engaged in a general wholesale grocery business, also deals extensively in feed, lime, cement, sewer pipe, brick, etc. This company has met with marked success in its business, which is constantly growing until at this time its annual sales amount to about two hundred and forty thousand dollars. In 1912 the company erected a modern brick building in Logan for the carrying on of its business. Mr. Browning is heavily interested in large tracts of undeveloped coal and timber land in West Virginia, and is also associated with his family in other rich lands in the state. In politics he is a Republican. He is prominent in the Masonic Order, having obtained the thirty-second degree."

- From History of West Virginia and Its People, Volume 3. Charleston, WV: Lewis Historical Publishing Co., 1913.

"He and his brother Thomas [Browning] owned The Browning Building Company which included the White & Browning Building, some coal mines, and other property in and around Logan, West Virginia. His two-thirds interest in the company was left to my grandmother Mary Helen Stone and their daughters, Lucille and Ruth. They lived in a very nice home "up on the hill" in Logan." - Source: Libby Knauer, Sidney's granddaughter, 1999
