O.K. Clyde,

I'm going to try and answer some of your questions, now that I have my notes.
First of all you have your BRINDLEYS all mixed up. Richard BRINDLEY B.1740 and his sons; Stephen BRINDLEY B.1759, George BRINDLEY B.1761, Robert BRINDLEY B.1763 and FRAZIER BRINDLEY B.1765, were all born in Northern Ireland. The family story is that Richard stowed away on a ship to America (see Betty Chaney's posting for 4-5-02). I have found my earliest documentation in Jefferson County Tennessee Court Minutes-late 1780's, at the Tennessee State Library and Archives. There is mention of Richard (last name is spelled BRINTLE here), Stephen, George, and Frazier. It also included records of Frazier's marriage to Phoebe Riggs and George's marriage to Martha Barclay. I've found no mention of the names of Richard's or Stephen's wives names at the Archives yet. However, if you see Darla Broberg's posting on 10-25-01, you will see the mention of the name DeRossett. Where did you find VILETITA ? Anyway, there were two seperate families of Brindleys in the same area during the late 1800's and onward in the Smith County/Putnam County area of Tennessee. Benjamin Franklin BRINDLEY was born in Kentucky, according to the census reports I've researched for that area. One of his descendents, Boss BRINDLEY, is listed in the 1920 Putnam County Census Records, 2nd Civil District, Family #267, as a 40 year old male-Head of Family, Thula BRINDLEY-26 yr. old Wife, Hazel BRINDLEY-1&10/12 Dau and Odeue-2/12 Dau. Boss is buried in the same cemetery as my Grandmother and Grandfather. I asked my uncle Wilson what relation Boss was, and he told me "none, They're a different bunch"
Stephen BRINDLEY B.1812, Elijah BRINDLEY B.1819, and Asa BRINDLEY B.1820-all in the Chestnut Mound area of what was then Smith County Tennessee, were brothers. I have not yet been able to find records of their parents.
Stephen BRINDLEY married Mary (Polly) HORTON. Their children included Mahala BRINDLEY (1845), Harriet BRINDLEY (1847), George BRINDLEY (1849), Elijah BRINDLEY (1852), Lucy Ann BRINDLEY (1853, Martha Emeline BRINDLEY (1854) Elizabeth BRINDLEY (1855), Sarah E.BRINDLEY (1855), Mary Susan BRINDLEY (1857), Margaret BRINDLEY (1858), Asa BRINDLEY (1859), Frank BRINDLEY (1861), Elizabeth BRINDLEY (1861), Elijah BRINDLEY (1864), Lucy Ann BRINDLEY (1865), Mary Susan BRINDLEY (1867) Margaret M. BRINDLEY (1868), and Frank BRINDLEY (1869) GOTTA QUIT NOW ITS STORMING. I'LL FINISH LATER
