Levi Winans Brant MD 1822-1886
Might anyone in the 'Winans' family genealogy forum be able to give any clues as to the possible origins of someone named Levi Winans Brant? Said to have been born in Oldtown MD (near Cumberland) in 1821 or 1822; died in Cumberland 1886. Married (1) to Mary Tabitha Athey; (2) to Mary Pitzer. My feeling is that his name would have come from his maternal line, but I have no clues as to his parentage - there are a lot of Brants in the area at that time, but I have found no information to date which includes Levi in any pedigrees.Grateful for any clues anyone has to offer!
