Stacy, I am not sure of the relation of Daniel Branton but I think Joseph was a great uncle.The reason you can't find anything further on Daniel is because he may have died in the Civil War. I Recently found on a Roots Web site for Bartow County, GA that Samuel Branton and Daniel Branton both died of measels in Knoxville, Tenn. about 1861. The site listed units for Bartow County and you have to look at the roster of each unit. The site also has info. on early Bartow County marriages and some wills. Most of the Branton family lived in the Stamp Creek (Wolf Pen) area outside of White,GA. I plan to visit the area this week and will let you know if I find anything new.
