I have recently been in contact with some others that are associated with my Makemson line in Pendleton Co., Ky. Although not direct decendants, they do give insight on some of the connections through the names of Brann, Hand, Dance, Thompson. One writer gave the story of Margaret Brann Moore Makemson who was the survivor of an Indian attack that occurred about 1805/07.The Brann home & others were attacked by the Indians. One woman was scalped & left for dead but she survived.The Brann family then left the area & moved back to near Morgan to live near other relatives. The history of these early days can relate how our families lived & survived their times.
