I hate all these Josiah's... sigh...
I show the following, and really won't swear to anything. The Josiah in Clarke County, isn't in my tree.
Joseph/Josiah, son of Isaac Sr and Margaret Oldy's.
Land grants and census of 1825 in St George Parish (Dorchester, SC).
Josiah Sr. son of Isaac and Mary Mellett. Died in Georgia and married to Comfort Canty Green (name in dispute on internet).
His son Josiah Jr who married Sylvia Pickney and died in Lincoln County, Georgia in 1837
His son Josiah Pickney Brunson born and died in Lincoln county Georgia.
A son Josiah Pickney Brunson of Mathew Eugene Brunson and his wife Sarah Blanchard. He died in Coffee County, Alabama.
Then I have my family's Josiah, born 1797 in Sumter county, SC, a son of David Brunson and his wife Sarah Johnson who died in Pike County, Alabama.
I know someone sent me information that disproved my information that Daniel Brunson and Mary Platt descended from Josiah Brunson and Comfort Canty Green. Unfortunately I can't find it at the moment.
Here are some notes I have, but looking at them over a year later, all they do is confuse me... lol.. need to go back and review again!

I didn't really research the Moses in Ga. but he received a grant for 200 acres in Burke Co Ga. 1789 but do not know which Moses this was. Which Isaac are you writing about. Isaac and Margaret had son Isaac who mar mary, Isaac III mar Susannna Ellender of Edgefield according to record he died intestate in 1827 and was listed as "of Cane Savannah." It is recorded that his estate was settled by his son-in-law Jeremiah Pitts. Papers are recorded in Sumter CO., Courthouse, Probate Jusdge's office Bundle 14, pkg 7 His children listed as James, Isaac 1V, Joseph, Susan, Daniel, Rebecca, Margaret, Valentine. Do you have a different record? Or is this your line. My line is from Abraham, brother to first Isaac. I do not know all of his children, it is possible he had a Moses. I only know of a few children. I have all the children of Joseph another brother and son of Abraham. Isaac Brunson the third wasborn 17445, died 1827, Every body had an Isaac all the way through all children even my line. They are hard to seperate. Does any record state where your Isaac was from and location of any family. I also have an Isaac who was son of John son of Abraham, my line.
