Hi there and welcome to the BRUNSON Forum. Yes, the Brunson's did own slaves in those days as did pretty much most of the southern families. I have seen in several of the "Brunson" wills where they had willed their slaves to their descendents. I thought yours was interesting as my name is also "Andrew". E-Mail me and I will try to send, or at least point you in the right direction, one of the wills that mentions "slave" records. They were showing in South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and pretty much most of the southern states and it seemed pretty standard to take the names of their "owners", Maybe you can get back into your "actual" history showing the family members that was "brought over" or "sold". Wouldn't that make a great tie in for you! Anyway, let me know if I can help.
