Thanks for the information. I apologize for just now seeing this post to the forum; I am still figuring out how the forum works. I do have new information for you and perhaps I will have more by the time you return to the computer.
Yesterday I went to the Dallas Public Library where there is a large genealogy section. I plan to go again later this week. Anyway, I was unable to connect Nehemiah to Robert, but I've just begun the search. I do know that a section of Dorchester County, Maryland became Kent and Sussex Counties, Delaware in about 1774. Some of the later information on Robert states he was born in Delaware, which leads me to believe that the section of Dorchester County where Robert lived became Delaware in 1774. So, on my next search later this week, I will check Delaware records.
In searching early Dorchester County records, there were a lot of Brannocks, but no mention of a Nehemiah or Robert. I will see if they show up in Delaware.
Thanks for the name of Robert's first wife. I will research her. According to the 1810 census, there was not an adult female living in Robert's home. Could Sephona have died? Robert did marry Elizabeth Myers on November 10, 1818, so Sephona was out of the picture by then. I will see what I find.
I have been compiling a Word document of everything I have found on Robert. I believe your email address shows up when I send this message. If so, I will email you the Word document. Please check your inbox from "Jeanine Stewart." I will send it in a few days after I add more information to it.
Thanks also for the names of Robert's children. I have seen some of the names and have wondered if they were his children. From the U.S. Federal Census records from 1810 to 1850, I have ascertained that Robert had 19 to 20 children! The Word document will explain how I came to this conclusion.
