I wonder if you have a James BRANTNER - perhaps a brother of your Charles ?James was in the Civil War and was wounded in NC. He married Antoinette JOHNSON who came from Norway. I'll get my information out and if you know of a James, will share what he may have had on the family. Haven't worked on it for years, so will have to go through it.
