Re: Indiana Bransons?
My mother was Mary Ellen Branson. My great great grandfather William Hinton Branson,born in NC 1836, went to Indiana before the Civil War. He married Nancy Ellen Jeffries in Sullivan County IN in 1866. I have information on most of his descendants. His son James Michael Branson moved to Arkansas with his family shortly after 1900.
Wm Hinton Branson's uncle Asa Branson was already in Indiana when he came. Actually a lot of Wm's brothers migrated to IN from NC also.
