First Name:

The Family of Bozar (Rosier) Brannan (Brannon)

Updated December 27, 2000

About Our Family Research

I am looking for descendents of Bozar (Rosier) Brannan and Anzilla Galloway. I have information on two of his children, James Edward (Jimmy) Brannon, child number 4 and William Riley Brannon. The spelling was changed from "A" to "O" somewhere down the line. Rosier came from the Darlington district of South Carolina. He has a brother named John, born about 1787, a sister named Judith, born Sept. 21, 1793, an another brother Martin, born about 1802.

Rosier came to Alabama in the mid 1800's. He settled in the Henry County area at that time. He and Anzilla are buried at the Center United Methodist Church close to Echo, AL. His son, Joel Jehoikim E. Brannon gave the land for the church to be built.

The descendents of William Riley Brannon have a "Brannon Reunion" on the 3rd Sunday of October each year at the Center UMC.

I am looking for information on the other 10 members of Rosiers and Anzilla's family. They are:

Mary Ann: B. Dec 10, 1826, D. 1-30-1891 M. Daniel Riley
I have some info on their 9 children but nothing beyond.

Curtis: B. 7-5-1829, D. 8-18-1896 No other info.

Joel Jehoiakim E.: B 5-12-1831 D 5-24-1864 KIA Civil War
M. Argent Gay Have his 3 children and most of their children.

Lydia (Lettie B): b. 3-12-1840 m. George Riley

John W.: b. 5-8-1842 d. 2-7-1900 m. Jane Riley

Jsper: b. 9-12-1844 d. 10-25-1934 m. 1. Martha Jane Smith 2, Mary Ella Everett

Elizabeth: b. 10-26-1846 no other info.
