I am not sure of this for certain, but Charles McBrayer and Hannah McBrayer sound familiar. My Grandmother was a McBrayer from Rome, GA. Her name was Joyce McBrayer and married my grandfather Herbert Raines.

From what I know some of the McBrayers from Rome and Lindale were involved with the McBrayer Furniture stores and company. This is the McBrayer line I know some of and can find out about.

I will check my grandmothers line, as well as with my father and get back with you on the names, they do sound familiar.

chris,
thanks for the info, i appreciate anything you or your grandparents can add to what i have. hannah mcbrayer(born 1881) married a c.w. "bud" williams. charles mcbrayer (born 1874) married ella elizabeth holland. he died in a railroad accident in 1902 ; supposidly his family , his wife and 4 or 5 kids died in a housefire. i did find a newspaper article about the railroad accident but not the housefire. i am distantly related to the mcbrayer furniture people. but i have been told that millie ruland, a mcbrayer before she married ,still goes into the furniture stoe some and she could tell me alot. my line goes like -- andrew erwin mcbrayer / nancy ann leathers; samuel marion mcbrayer / campie weddington; henry grady mcbrayer sr / ola mae wright ; henry grady jr / dorothy kilpatrick.

thanks for your reply to my email. i am still researching the family history in my spare time. i believe the mcbrayer's of the furniture store in rome are distant cousins. i am trying to locate anyone who knew samuel marion mcbrayer and his wife campy. or possibly have a picture of them. i came across some old photos but wouldn't know for sure if they are in any of these photos. thanks for your time.
