Comments: My maternal grandfather Joseph Riddick was from Southhampton county, Va - I have a copy of a will where his grandfater L.R. Riddick left his large estate (farm) to his father Louis Napoleon Riddick and several other heirs in 1912. Eventually, what was left was deeded and sold (have copy) in 1959 by the remaining heirs to the Union Bag-Camp Paper Corp. I would love to find out more about why this happened. Any help in this mystery or finding other family would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for all the work you are doing.

Comments: My great, great grandmother was Emily Cordelia Brantley. I am looking for her parents and siblings. She was born September 1, 1823 (1820 on her tombstone but that date doesn't work with her age in the 1850 census)in Georgia. She married Henry Bonner on August 11, 1840 in Baldwin County, Georgia. Emily and Henry were in Bibb County in 1841 and in Baldwin County in 1850. Edmund Brantley paid taxes in 1845 on behalf of Henry Bonner on a 160 acre Cherokee Land Lottery (1832)tract. Emily and Henry are listed on the 1860 census in Smith County, Texas. Emily died December 2, 1892 at Fairy, Hamilton County, Texas. She was living with her daughter Pretonia Bonner and son William F. (Wiley?) Bonner.
Admin reply: Surely a descendant of Rev Edmund Brantly. See book entries on pg 274 & 275

Comments: Rebecca Tyler, my maternal grandmother Betty Hammond (Brantley was her maiden name) I think was a member here. We are related to Benjamin Franklin Brantley, actually I just saw a picture of him yesterday. The children's names sound familiar too. Look me up on facebook, we can connect. I am personally gathering more recent Brantley data from the northern and certal California area.
