My great grandfather was Thomas jefferson Brunson. I have heard numerous family stories that TJB and RAB were brothers. I am not aware of any proof, but the story seems to persist.Unfortunately, neither I, nor any other Brunson researcher that I have met or talked with, have any idea who the parents of these two Brunsons were. It is almost as if they never existed. I have wondered if maybe TJB and RAB's parents were endentured servants and took the name of their employer. If that is the case, then we are not Brunsons!!! One day, hopefully, we will know for sure. Let me know if you find anything out. My father, Otis David Brunson, Sr., worked for 20 years prior to his death on the Brunson line. his information has been compiled into a book. There is a lot of unimportant, yet interesting info about the family. I am trying to get everything together for a second printing of the book. If you are interested, let me know.
