Re: Mississippi Brinson Sites Started
Hello.I am researching my Black American ancestors surnamed Brinson.The locale I am researching is in and around what is now known as Millen, Jenkins County, Georgia.Jenkins County was formed in 1905, and Emanuel, Burke, and Screven counties are part of its history.
Please take a look at the URL below and let me know if your Brinsons were part of the family that established Brinsonville, and whether or not they owned plantations in the area and owned slaves.
I know that Brinsons from Burke County, Georgia, migrated to Florida where they purchased land.However, they may have travelled back and forth between their land holdings in the different states.
Thanks to your post, I now know that Brinsons from Burke County, Georgia, also migrated to Mississippi.Would you know if the Mississippi Brinsons were a part of one family that lived in Georgia, or was there more than one Brinson household with different family origins?
