Keith; Do you think the William Brightwell born 1779, Prince Edward Co. VA [son of Reynolds Brightwell and Drucilla Allmand] moved first to the Barnwell, S. Carolina area.He remained there a short time before leaving and traveling through Georgia. Some family settled and broke off and remained in Stewart Co. Ga. but our William Brightwell continued to travel and settled in Butler Co. Ga. He was the founder of the Mt. Olive Bapt Church in that county.William Brightwell's mother was probably Mary Olive Reynold brightwell's first wife instead of Drucilla Allmon, but still researching that information. My point: Lucy probably received his pension for the Revolutionary War because William Brightwell had left the State of Virginia heading for Alabama at the time.Communication was very bad to none at that time and the family probably thought William had died.Anyway, that is what the records are showing me. Some help, your thoughts.
