I'm stunned to learn that Joseph and Barbara (Fulton) Brawley settled in Marion County, Illinois. That's really significant because Marion County is the precise location where MY Fulton family settled during this same period.
What does this mean? I dunno (yet) ... your information was not what I expected, but then -- itsn't that what true research is all about?
Thank you very much. Let me retrace my steps; I may have significant new information to share with you.
