Samuel, Jr. was born 10/17/1845, died 12/3/1931, buried next to his father at Mt. Hope Cemetery, San Diego.
Sarah Adelaide was born 8/3/1848 in Ohio, Married a Winans.
Fanny Kemble was born 1850 in CA
Don Francisco, named after San Francisco, was born about 1852. I think he only lived about 2.5 years.
Lizzie Alisa was born about 1856.
I think I have more information, will try to look it up tomorrow. I am a direct descendant of Sam's.

I had forgotten about Almira Hatch mainly because from the last two books that I have on Sam Brannan, the author can find no proof of the marriage or child. Do you have some? The best 2 books that I have are by William Bagley. Some of the others have some truth in them, but I think a lot of it is embellishment. Shirley Brannan Magrath

Try Hatch and/or Almira Brannan in OHIO. Then try the same names in Hattie Brannan.

I don't remember seeing anything about a Samuel Tillman Brannan, but that's not to say there isn't. I'll keep my eyes open for the name.
