Thanks for clearing up when William F. was in Alabama.I have George in 1860, by 1870 He's in Madison County, N.C.He was shot and killed at the Forks of Ivy by James Rank Deaver in August 1878.He came to N.C. with his brother Benjamin Franklin DeBruhl around 1868Ben F. is actually the line I'm pursuing thru his son Francis Marion.I do have the land records for Michael in Alabama, and I have the original deeds for Ben F. in Madison County (now Mars Hill, N.C.) I'm supposed to be getting in the mail sometime this week more Deaver and DeBruhl information. If there's anything worth sharing, I'll be happy to do so.My ex has some original records which he's sending to me.
William F. is back in 1840 - Unknown Township, Kershaw, S.C.He's still in Kershaw in 1850 but appears to be gone before 1860
As I'm sure you already know, father Edward was in Marlboro County. I do have some abstracts of conveyances for Marlborough County from 1786 to 1796 if you don't already have themIrma
