William Berry Brogdon 1862 son of Celia M. and David Brogdon
Does anyone know who William Berry Brogdon was named for? Traditionally the first son was named for his paternal grandfather, or someone from the paternal side, although that was not always the case. I'm wondering whether the Brogdons or the Martins were related to the Berrys.
Wm Berry's father, David, reputedly abandoned his wife and son when the baby was about 1 year old and was never heard from again. Celia then married Frank Gray. The Brogdons lived in Robeson County, NC, and Marion County, SC.
