The Reynolds Brightwell in war 1812 in Tenn. Is NOT ours that we know of.Just found him in our research one day. So he most likely is yours.Our Brightwells from Granville NC. had Duffy/Duffey grand children to move to Tenn. You can find them on the forum under Duffy/Duffey (Patrick Duffey married one of our old Reynolds Brightwell,s daughters in Granville co. NC.)--- Now,Who was the father of your William Brightwell Born abt. 1800 in Nc.?
