Direct Line Ancestors – Brinson

SOME OF YOU HAVE ASKED ME RECENTLY WHO OUR DIRECT LINE ANCESTORS – BRINSON – ARE. AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT I CAN DO WITHOUT GOING THROUGH TOO MANY MOUNTAINS OF MY MOTHER’S INFORMATION!

The photos above are the wedding photos of Henry Hector Brinson and Edna Eudora Terrell, taken in 1901. I have better quality copies of these photos somewhere, and will update these photos when I locate them.

This list will start with Ralph Cranford Brinson and his wife Catherine Shumaker Brinson. If you don’t know how you’re related to them, contact me and I’ll help you figure it out.

At each level, I’ll include both the man who has the surname we’re following, and his wife (if known). That way, you’ll be able to follow the wives’ direct lines, which I hope to list later. I’ll also include links to articles in this blog about any of the people who have been mentioned so far. As I go along, I’ll try to keep the links current, along with any new names that are discovered later – either in my mother’s information, or online on genealogy sites. And in the distant future, when I get an actual genealogy book published, these lists will be included. I’ll put the link to the book(s) here when that happens.
