Randy, thank you for your message.The info. I have came from an aunt of my dad's who did some research, so some of it may be incorrect.Do you have any dates for births, deaths, marriages on these people?I don't have a lot of info. on the Brammers b/c my aunt was researching the Dillon line.There is some info. on one of her pages I am not quite clear about.It says, "In Patrick County the first John Brammer that I have any record of married Sarah Lee, on April 30, 1795.John Brammer Jr. married Nancy Davis on Jan. 13, 1816."They had 9 children:Rachel, Wm. Davis, Lucy (who married James Dillon 5/13/1842, my ggggrandparents), Henry, Nancy, Adline, Texas, Tazewell Perry, and John.
On another page of her info., she has that John Brammer was the son of Millie & Burgess Brammer.He was born Dec. 25, 1791 & died Aug. 6, 1872.He first married Nancy Davis. The marriage date she has listed for them on this page conflicts with the info. on the other page.She has Feb.1, 1814.Nancy Davis was born in 1795 & died Dec. 24, 1841.John's 2nd wife was Anna Hubbard, married June 5, 1856, and they had no children.On this page she lists 11 children from the marriage of John Brammer to Nancy Davis (there were 2 others who died young not listed on the other page.)She gives a little more detailed info. on the children here. 1. Lucy, b. 1817, married James Dillon 1842.2. Rachel, b. 1822, married Caleb Boyd 1852.3. Nancy, b. 1825, married John Belcher 1845.4. John, b. 1828, single, d. 1863.5. Wm. Davis, b. 1834, married Lucinda DeHart 1852,(dau. of Stephan DeHart).6. Henry T., b. 1832, married Sara DeHart 1861.7. Adaline, b. 1836, married John B. Cockram 1867.8. Texas, bo. 1839, married Andrew Cockram.9. Tazewell Perry, b. July 25, 1841, married Lucinda DeHart 1861 (dau. of Gabriel DeHart).10. Joseph, b. 1816, d. 1832.11. Elizabeth, b.?, d. 1830.It also says that Tazwell was only 5 months old when his mother died.
I don't know if any of this will help to clear things up a bit.Anything you can add to help straighten out this mess would be greatly appreciated!I'm wondering why we have 2 women by the same names marrying 2 different men - John & James.I'm also wondering why I have info. in one place that tells me John Brammer's parents were Burgess & Millie, and info. in another that makes it sound as though his parents were John, Sr. & Sarah Lee.There was another message in this same forum that had the children of Burgess & Mildred Brammer listed as Shadrack, William, John, Joseph, Patsey & Frances.It was posted on 6/30/98 as a reply.I have e-mailed the man who sent it to try to get more info., but have not yet heard anything.
Please write back if you can help.I hope this doesn't make things even more confusing!Thanks, Kathy
