While researching my own family, not BRUNER, I ended up with quite a bit of information on a former slave who served in the Civil War from Missouri, Richard BRUNER, b. ca 1842 Chariton Co MO, d. 1938, Saline Co MO. He had several children from two wives, Mary or May DEDRICH(?) and Annie BARTEE or BONTEE. Be happy to share info. Please contact me directly via email.
