Re: George Brinson, Jasper County, MS
The Sydney Brinson of whom you speak is a member of my Brinson line.Sydney Brinson was the son of Gause Brinson, Jr., and his wife, Jane, of Claiborne County, Mississippi.He married Harriett E. D. Callam in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana on July 4, 1837.He later moved to Arkansas and then Texas.
His father, Gause Brinson, Jr., was born c1786 in Onslow County, North Carolina.He moved with his parents between 1795 and 1800 to Montgomery (in that part which later became Stewart) County, Tennessee.He was in Claiborne County, Mississippi by 1820 where he died in 1825.His wife according to his will and probate records was named Jane.She died in May 1826.He was then placed under the care of Lewis Williams and his wife, Arissa Brinson Williams, who was Gause Brinson, Jr.'s sister and my ancestors.
Gause Brinson, Jr., was the son of Gause Brinson, Sr.He was born before 1765 in Onslow County, North Carolina.He married Mary before 1788.They removed to what is now Stewart County, Tennessee by 1800.He died there in 1805.Mary remarried Peter Buchan.They eventually moved to Claiborne County, Mississippi.Mary was dead by 1824.
Gause Brinson, Sr. was the son of George Brinson.His possible wife and probable mother of his children was named Apsilla.A woman of that name witnessed a deed with George in 1752.In later life George married a woman named Mourning.George died between October 1791 when he made a deed of gift to a son and April 1794 when Mourning, his widow, remarried.
George Brinson may have been a son of another George Brinson.His estate was probated in Onslow County, North Carolina in 1744.No heirs or relations are mentioned.
