His son Thomas W. BRODNAX d Hemphill, TX 1874. [dtr Rebecca Virginia BRODNAX b 15 Feb 1829 AL. md Capt. James McDonald WINSTON,dtr Ann Hall BRODNAXb c1816 Gainsville, AL d 29 Jan 1848 age 29md Anthony Augustus WINSTON ]
The eighth ch was Margaret Olive BRODNAX b 22 Dec 1845 Mobile, AL.b ca1845 md JONES, The ninth and tenth were Augustus WinstonBRODNAX b 2 Oct 1847 [to Brazil] & Eliza Jane BRODNAX b c1850 md Christopher Pritchett EZELLE [to Brazil]. Augustus Winston BRODNAX b 2 Oct 1847 AL. was a dentist, died??(went to Brazilaft Civil War). Robert is brd at Choctaw Corner, AL. Hannah KIRVENbrd at Elmwood Cem, Birmingham AL. (also spelled BROADNAX)
Augustus Winston BRODNAX b 2 Oct 1847 AL. md c1869 Americana, Brazil, South America, Emma Luella NORRIS b 4 May 1849 Dallas Co. AL. brd, apparently alone, in Campo Cem nr Santa Bárbara SP, w/stone engraved"Emma N. BROADNAX 5 Apr 1849, 11 Apr 1935" d/o William Hutchinson NORRIS & Mary BLACK. Ch of Winston BRODNAX: Leila BRODNAX b c1871, Olive BRODNAX b ca1873 Brazil, Florence BRODNAX b ca1875 in Brazil (I believe Rebecca Virginia BRODNAX b 15 Feb 1829 who md James McDonald WINSTON & Ann Hall BRODNAXb c1816 Gainsville, AL d 29 Jan 1848 age 29md Anthony Augustus WINSTON were both daughters of Robert BRODNAX & Olive WHITAKER)
Winston BRODNAX did not have a very stable temperament and later on, when his parents and the sister [Jane] md to Dr EZELLE had left for the U.S., the situation did not improve. One day when his ch: Olive, Leila and Florence were still very young, WINSTON disappeared and never came back. Col. NORRIS collected his daughter and brought up the grch with much love and care.
Robert and Anna BRODNAX apparently travelled back to the US alone leaving Rio de Janeiro for Mobile 14 Oct 1874. The passenger list of the American barque HELEN ANGIER, as given in the Jornal de Comércio the following day has no other Broadnax (other passengers were William & Edward Trigg and Samuel Royt).
