I'm the granddaughter of George Russel Brightwell. Joel and Annie are my great grandmother and father.I can probably fill you in on any information you need.I don't known if Walter was named after John Rice or if he tookthe maiden name of Joel's grandmother which is common. Joel's parents were William James Brightwell and Matilda Palmer. William James parents are John Claybrook Brightwell and Elizabeth Rice. I found Joel and his family's bural in Kuttawa Kenucky and Annie Alford is buried with her children Ruth and Robert in Trenton, Tennessee. I have pics of Joel and Annie which I would enjoy sharing and a baby pic of the children. I would like to know more about Walter.I'm looking forward to hearin from you.
