My third great grandmother was Rhoda S. Brantley (1806-1885). She married John Ely (1798-1835). He is my furthest relative I can find on the Ely side. It has been very interesting and informative to see how far back to England the Brantley side goes!

My 3rd g-g-grandparents were Harris Brantley/Martha Anne Shehee of Washington CO. I believe Harris was the son of Solomon Brantley and Patricia Wall, but I do not know who either of their parents were. I only recently found this website and I have not found another family website that reflects such meticulous scholarship or generosity of spirit in sharing research findings. I would be honored to join the association and contribute in any way I can.

It's amazing to find your page! My father is Gilbert E. Brantley, son of Durward Earl Brantley, grandson of Doane Earl Brantley. Would you have more on this family line in your records? I would like to trace further back. Thanks for your work! :D

What a wonderful site when searching for clues in Southhampton County VA. What an outstanding project to your famiky and others like myself who are always looking for that one little piece of record for proving.

Thank you for giving other researchers this connection. I never knew I had a connection to the county until this week and now I feel like I hit a jackpot; another patriot or maybe even 2 or 3, possibly additional names, and now another county my family goes back to.

Kaye :D :D

I am William Allen Brantley's daughter.My grandfather's name was James Madison Brantley. I looked over some of your picture and the resemblance to my grandfather and his brothers is unreal. We actually have a Ken Brantley in our family.

Admin reply: Other names in common. I too descend from a James Madison Brantley (another). I have a daughter named Jeannie. Get me back anther generation and i can tell more about your line. Where were they at and who was James M's father. Some dates??

Brenda,

Thank you so much for your expression of gratitude. This, and the many other comments we have had since the completion of the project has been a reward within itself far more to us than most understand. We can give thanks to so many who labored diligently for hours upon hours to index and display these records with no financial compensation. They just realized the value to family history researchers, like yourself, to have such a file at their fingertips. The project was a dream long before it was initiated and we can give thanks to Probate Clerk, Rick Francis, who shared the dream and allowed us to come to his courthouse and image the ancient records. Rick even saw that I was compensated for my stay while there. He was the first among the hero's to this event. Without him, nothing would have become of this dream of decades. God bless him! This was, the first project to image, display, and index a near entire Courthouse record collection of the 18th and 19th century, and yes, allow the researcher to see these as though they were there.

We had hope for the same project in Isle of Wight County, even at our own expense, but it never materialized. It is my hope that someday the many courthouse collections, especially which include the 17th and 18th century records will too be separately available to researchers throughout the world; Well… I can dream, can't I ☺.

I will forward your expression of gratitude to our Southampton project volunteers, and thanks again for taking the time to extend your thoughts of appreciation.

Sincerely

Ken Brantley

I am thrilled to find your website. I have Vick, Reese, and Rivers, and more ancestors that came from this area. I am now going through all the records to find official records for them. This is so amazing to be able to do this from my living room. Thanks so much for your hard work.
