Re: Ella Mae Brinson 1871-1943, Mississippi
Chris, I have in my database an Ella Brinson born in 1871 and married to Leff Terrell. I show Ella's parents as Adam W. Brinson (1832-1910) and Sarah Holloway (1837-1919).I show siblings of Ella as Ida, Anna, John, Lena, Mattie, Will, Virginia & Henry Hector.
This information came from the manuscript Sebron Sylvester Dale, Ancestors & Descendants by Donna Griffith, Clinton, MS.
Almost all of the information I have on the Brinson line has come from sources on the Internet which I therefore cannot vouch for, and from Donna's book.I've done this primarily for a Burkett cousin of mine whose mother was Fanny Estelle Brinson; my relationship calculator says Estelle was a 1st cousin twice removed of Ella.
*IF* your Ella Mae is the same as my Ella, I have her line back to Thomas Brinson, Sr., b. Abt 1631 in Ireland, d. about 1674 in Norfolk Co., VA.I can share this information with you as long as you understand the potential quality of the source(s).
