My name is Melody, and I live in Jacksonville, Alabama. A friend of mine and I enjoy doing research together and love taking photos. I hope the research I do helps others. Some of my husband's family surnames include Cook, Crain/Crane, Matthews, Crocker, Green, Sutton, Nichols, Corbin, Rollins, Gravett, Potts, Scott, and Keller. Mine are Jones, Chandler, Dawson, Pearson, Webb, Wellborn, Norton, Winslett, Cambron, Denney, Buse and Bonds.
I have been on this site for over 9 years, but have just recently gotten to a place where I am comfortable adding people and updating memorials. Most of my family have already been added. I do request transfers occasionally, please note I ask for ones I am close to, or direct line.
I am not one of "those people". If I have one of your family members, and I am not related to them, or if you are more closely related (other than direct ancestors), please let me know. I will gladly transfer them. I am not here for the numbers, I would just like to make the information available to those who want it.
If you have updates you would like added to the bio, please e-mail me or message me, I will be happy to update the memorial.
Thank everyone who helps and contributes to this site. I have met family members from miles away. It is nice to work as a community.
Lastly, be nice. We are all here for the same reason; to share information and honor our loved ones.
Brasher & Brittain connections In addition to Isaac Long Brasher and his first wife, Clancy / Clarissa Duvall, per your virtual cemetery for your direct lines, we also share Burwell Brittain. I descend from his first wife, Mary (Polly) Hinton through their daughter, Nancy Susannah (Susan) Brittain who married William Joel Smith and their daughter, Nancy Smith who married Isaac Long Brasher and Clarissa's son, William I. Brasher.
Is that how you also descend from both couples?
I have an original pastel portrait of William I. Brasher and Nancy Smith.
From William I. Brasher and Nancy Smith, I descend through their daughter, Nancy E. D. Brasher who married John Bartley Whitfield, then Roxie Maybell Whitfield who married William Earle Brasher, then to my grandmother, Flora Odell Kathleen Brasher.
