Dear Sandy, I have much of the info you are seeking, I believe. As I list this I welcome any corrections or additions from other Brigman researchers that may have additional or more accurate research than I.
Charlotte's parents were Eli Hinson born c1775 in Va. Mother Catherina______? born 1800 in NC. (Marlboro Co. Court Records) Eli died prior to 1858. That is when John and Charlotte sold their interest in 129 acre tract on state line and Mountain Branch on which Charlotte's father Eli had lived.Both listed in 1850 Marlboro County Census as illiterate. Charlotte most probably had other siblings, at least one brother, though I do not have specific documentation before me to give accurate info on this point.
John Washington Strong Brigman b. 5/14/1813 d.3/9/1896 married Charlotte Hinson b.1820 d. 1/12/1894. Both buried Pleasant Grove Baptist Church Cemetery, Rockingham, NC., Richmond Co. NC (PL. GR. Cem. Records and Tombstones) Undocumented oral history says he joined Confederate Army at an age too old to fight. Was assigned as a surgeon's amputee medic and thereby earned unofficial title of "Doctor" Can't find documented Civil War service. Closest has been transfer of a John Brigman from Company to Company which references sameMarlboro Co. 26th Regiment SC Volunteer Infantry that many other Brigmans were in, but no proof this was him. So far I have not come across any researcher that has solved the puzzle of who exactly his father and mother were. I would very much welcome any data or educated theories in this direction.

William b.1840. Also appears to have been killed at Petersburg during Civil War.In same Marlboro Co. with Eli Brigman.(See same documentation.)
Henry Allen b. 9/10/1843 d. 1/15/1906 buried Pleasant Grove Baptist Church Cemetery. Civil War Verteran of same Marlboro Co. Co.D, 26th Regiment, SC Volunteer Army. Appears to have also been at Petersburg at time of Eli and William's death. In late 1890's, he is the reporting authority for their deaths on Civil War Veteran Pension Rosters.
married 1 Effie Martin 1851-1/31/1895 married 2 Lanie Cowart believed to be buried Coffee Co. Ga. where she and her sons moved to after Henry Allen's death. (Oral family history of Henry and Lanie Brigman descendants)
Can supply more extensive info on Henry's children and descendants as this is my Brigman line through Henry Allen and Effie Martin Brigman's oldest daughter, Hattie Lee Brigman McGee(McGhee)
Harriet b. c1844 John b. c1845 Julia b. 7/8/1849d. 11/29/1917 Never married. Buried Pleasant Grove Baptist Church Edmund b. c1854 Eliza b. 1852 Francis Drake (Frank) b.3/22/1856 d. 10/22/1905. Buried St.Paul's Methodist Church, Rockingham, NC. Churchwhich is walking distance from Pleasant Grove where his parents are buried. Also some later generations of Hinsons buried there also. (First hand visit of both cemeteries.)Married Martha Stogner. Also have lineage of his children and descendants.
Mary E. and Ella W. (twins) c. 1858. (Twins very prevelent in later generations of this line also.)
Will be glad to share additional info on later generations if wanted or answer any questions which I am able to that this info may bring to mind.
I can not take credit for researching all this info, just collecting it together. I have been fortunate enough to have several other Brigman researchers share helpful info with me. As you read query exchanges I'm sure you will come across them also. You will find much good support I'm sure as I did while you continue your research. Good luck...Elaine Alford Jones
