Dee Brannan is my grandfather and his name is Hubert Dee Brannan and he was born in 1931 Braggs, OK.
All I know is that my Thomas Jefferson Brannan was born in Seligman, MO in 1904, then married Thelma Cowan in 1926 in Sallisaw, OK. They had 5 children, my grandpa was born in 1931 in Braggs, OK. They would go back and forth to Arizona for work and he and Thelma finally divorced and then he died in 1963 in Arizona.

It appears thus far from what I have compiled and been able to talk with other descendants of Liza Brannan is that she never married (Brannan was her maiden name) and that her sisters husband Jake Sprinkles left her sister after having 12 children with her and had at least 3 children with Liza before leaving her and moving to Texas. It's all a mystery but it might be that Thomas took the last name of his mother and not his father. We really don't know who his father is....
