Comments: I am the great great grandson of Harrison Bramlett who died in Pulaski Tennessee in the late 1920's. Harrison Bramlett was the son of a malatto mother and the plantation owner. Harrison's wife, my great great grand mother was Priscella Beaufort. Priscella was the daughter of an African (slave) mother and a Cherokee father. This racial mixture was refered to as moliglascow (molly glass scow). I am not certain of the actual spelling, but the phonetic spelling is a good approximation. Great great grandmother Priscella was born in New Orleans circa 1850.

Comments: "From" is a bad word. Our Bramlett relatives were in North Carolina in the late 1700's to early 1800's, Surry County, to be more precise. i am a direct descendant of Lydia (Bramlett) Jones, who married James Edwin Jones in about 1797 in Surry County; and whose son Lemuel Bramlett Jones became a gggrandfather to my grandmother.
I am seeking some information about this Ambrose Bramlett. First, I have no documentation about whether Ambrose was the father of Lydia who married James Jones, just some IGI stuff that I picked up from the LDS. Of course that is a pretty good start, but I would like to have some more information to reassure myself that this is accurate.
Second, I am seeking information about the revolutionary war service of AMbrose Bramlett. if this is the same Ambrose listed in DAR stuff. I am aware there were a number of Ambrose bramletts in the area, and can't be sure my information is accurate.
ANyone out there comment? I'd love to hear from you. Thanks.

Comments: I am looking for information on Theodore McGuffy Bramlette who was born in AR. He married Winnie (Bell) Bradley, she was born in TN. They had nine children: Ambros (Terrell), Thomas, Felix, George, Millie, Susan, Mildred, Jackson and Peter. I am mainly interested in Ambros Jonas, I understand that he went by the name "Terrell". He married Ola Clifton on 9 January 1916, Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma and they lived in McLoud, Oklahoma. On 7 October 1920, Terrell stabbed his father in law, William Liberty Clifton, to death and was sent to the McAlester Federal Pen in McAlester, Oklahoma. He died in 1939 and is buried in the FairView Cemetery, Shawnee, Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma. I have located both Terrell and his father's family in the 1920 Oklahoma Census, but the whole family seems to have disappeared. Terrell is my mother in law's father. She was about 4 years old when the incident happened. While her mother, Ola, was alive no discussion was held about the Bramlette family. I have found the newspaper article of the incident, but can't find out any information.

It deals with first person history of the Bramlett family including the Bramlett Cemetary. I think it might be helpful. My grandmother on my mother's side was a Bramlett, Anna Laura, born about 1908, died about 1973. I can check on this when I get home.
Keep up the good work.

From: Now live in Michigan
Date: Sunday, September 12, 1999 at 11:38:09 EDT
Comments: I am searching for the wife of John Riley (born September 17, 1716, died 1791 in Fauquier County, Virginia and who married about 1744 in Prince William County, Virginia) whose name is reported as Elizabeth. There is a speculation that the surname of Elizabeth is Bramlett, which comes from the work of a Helen Ball (Helen did extensive work in Fauquier Co. on the Ball and related families), a copy is available through the microfilms of the Family History Center.
Also, a Reuben Bramblett was a witness of the will of this John Riley.
On your web site I read the following, which contains the name of Edward Riley. There is an Edward Riley who is a son of John Riley.
1806. "Bourbon County, KY. Will Abstracts. Will of Reuben Bramblett, Jr. Those mentioned, Wife, Peggy; son-in-law, John Grinstead; son, Hugh; three children in South Carolina, Reuben Jr., Willy Robertson and Polly Robertson;
son, William; son Lewis, land I claimed from heirs of Martin Pickett, deceased; son Henry. Written December 10, 1806. Prove January 1807. Executors, John Grinstead, Henry and Hugh Bramblett. Witnesses, Will Mitchell, Edward Riley, and Reuben Bramblett, Jr. See Will Book "C" page 198, Bourbon County, KY. pp Page 22, Kentucky Records, by Mrs. William B.Ardery.
While these documents do not prove that Elizabeth is a Bramlett, they do
show a connection between the two families.
Is there any additional information you can share that may shed some light(yes or no) on this speculation?
