5.Wallace Brinley, b. abt. 1850
Jacob Brinley moved from Hempstead, Arkansas, to Cherokee Co., Texas in 1843.
I don't know where he was born or died, or anything else about his ancestry.He may have been related to Matthias Brinley, whose name appears along with Jacob's in the 1834 Pike Co. Tax List.
Any information you can provide would be appreciated.
