My Great Grand Mother, Mary,June, Mollie, Bruner, Vanderford, Buie, was born in Monroe LA. 1864. Mary Mollie's mother was Mary Bruner Vanderford, born 1838, Choctaw CO. Ala..Her parents, were John 50 b 1800, and Sarah 40, Bruner listed on the 1850 census.John probably had an older son or maybe a younger brother, whose name was Major John Bruner 38, 1822, not of the same house hold but lived in the same county. There was also on the same census a William Bruner, in Choctaw Co, b 1815, 45 yrs on 1860 census maybe a brother to the elder John who was 60 in 1860.William and Major John could be sons of John if John started having kids at age 15. My Great Grandmother Mary Mollie married at the age of 15.
Anyhow, my great grandmother, Mary Mollie Bruner Vanderford Buie, died in Chickasha OK. Grady Co around 1935, we have her obituary, and the name of the Minister from the 1st Baptist Ch of Chickashawho preached her funeral was a Rev. J.W Bruner.I was thinking that maybe this JW B was possibly a cousin to Mary m bruner vanderfor buie.A child of either Major John or William. Possible. If you can follow it.
What the J. in Rev J.W. Bruner stood for I don't know it may have been Jay or Jess but I'll bet it was John William. I am going to call the !st Baptist of Chickasha and see what it was.
