My GreatGrand Father is Albert Brannan. As far as I know, he was the last Son born to James Culwell and Elizabeth Hood in 1820.
I have (Thanks to Nancy Taylor) located the gravesite (Dotson Cemetary in Alto, TN)and repaired the headstones of he and my GreatGrand Mother, Martha Partin born circa, 1825-30. From the records discovered in Franklin County, Tennessee it seems that Willis, my GrandFather, was born on September 25, 1864 and married Virginia Richardson on January 26, 1887. Virginia died approximately two months after giving birth to their only child, Louvenia (Lou) in 1888. I believe all was in Franklin County, Tennessee. Willis remarried on December 23, 1891 to Annie Womack in Coffee County, Tennessee (Court Records show Willis Brannon)
and after loosing several at an early age, My Father, Claud Brannan was born on December 25, 1896. He was 39 when he married my Mother Alma Long (born February 20, 1916) on April 01, 1935. I was born on April 14, 1936 in Winchester, Franklin County, Tennessee. My Son, Richard, Jr. was born March 06, 1963. He is an Air Force Major based in Oklahoma City. I Have located and visited decendants of Louvenia Brannan (Mrs Dorothy K. Crownover, Tifton, GA) but cannot locate anything on Annie Womack Brannan my GrandMother. Also, my Father Claud was married before he married my Father and had two children. Seems my Mother only knows their names: Claud, Jr. and Eugenia Brannan. Most of what I have is well documented and lots of help from Nancy Taylor.
