I have seen the notes on the Reunion over the years and was a bit curious about it. I would be happy to exchange information with Bright/Brite/Brecht researchers.Most of what I have is my Mom's work and she was doing research when there were only libraries, snail-mail, and telephones. She spent a great deal of time in sorting out this family.
Our Bright group came to Texas about 1848 and we have much of their early history. My gggrandmother, Nancy Amanda Bright, died in 1865 at the age of 32 and her husband remarried. There is not much known to us about her family after that time. We do have scattered info about ALBERTUS' brother, TOBIAS (who married Rachel Goodone/Godone), that was provided by some of their descendants.
Our line is: 1)TOBIAS and Helena Steelman 2)ALBERTUS and Patience Hopkins 3)TOBIAS and Jane Ford 4)WILLIAM and Eleanor Crabb Drane (came to Texas) 5)NANCY AMANDA and William Jay Caddell
Thank you for your note and if anyone is interested, please feel free to contact me.
