I think we may be related. My gg grandfather was John Riley Brenton born in 1846 and died in Henderson, Texas 1922. His wifes name was Dorinda Bracey. They had a daughter Josephine who married a Yeilding, son Andrew Jefferson(Jeff), son Robert E.(Bob), daughter Alice, daughter cornelia (Nellie) who married a Bracey- her first cousin., Daughter Caladonia your great grandmother, son Hardie(Horchee)and son Walter Scott who happens to be my great grandfather. my Name is Amie Brenton and I have been looking for info on the Brenton line. I know that John Riley Brenton's mother was Catherine ( Lou Katy ) Feilds and that his father was also named John Riley Brenton. His father was born in 1812 in Indiana. I have not been able to go past that. I would love to correspond with you and maybe we could find out more info together! I also recently recieved a photo of John Riley and Dorinda from another one of Josephine Brenton Yeilding's line. Would love to send it to you!
