In Reply to: Re: Brinley in early Jefferson Co., KY by Scott M. Denison of 186

William Ryan Brinley b Feb 4, 1839 Hillsboro, Jefferson Co. MO. married late in life. His wife, Matilda Jane Atterbery b.1/19/1857 in Fairfield, Wayne Co., IL. Their daughter "Effie' Matilda Jane Brinley was mother to 'Teddy'.
Their grand daughter, Evelyn 'Teddy' Volt lived to be well into her 90's and passed away in Renton, WA in recent years. A delightful lady with two children of her own, a daughter and a son. I have no info on them other than to say they didn't live in the Seattle area. Teddy and her hubby had moved to Washington from Kansas to 'fish'. That was her words to me when I was lucky enough to have visited her.
William was son to Levi Brinley SR (born in KY ca 17960 and brother of Levi Brinley JR. (I added the SR and JR to help I.D.)
William's civil war records were on file in Austin, TX where I read of the death of his young brother, Levi.
Levi SR was in TX in 1860 with his family. (he was in MO prior to this)
In 1870 he was deceased and his family had moved to Barry Co. MO.
However William Ryan was living with his sister:
1870 Census Gainsville, Tx Collin Co.
William R. Brinley living with a family (his sister) he has no occupiation. He had lost a leg in civil war just prior.

Melisa C. 7
John W 4 at home
Brinley William R 32
In 1880 His widow, Fannie and his son Joseph R was in Barry Co., MO
In 1900 Census shows Joseph in Pottawatomi CO. OK with his wife and two children, Amanda and George L. Brinley.
1860 CENSUS:
Levi 64, b. KY (ca 1796)
Fanny 40 TN
Levi 18 MO died in Civil war
Hannah 12 MO
Catharine 11 MO
John W 8
George 4 MO
This was prior to birth of Joseph.
Many census has this family as 'Brindley'.
I would like to connect to other descendants of Levi SR.....His first wife was Elizabeth....His military records gives 1800 as year of birth.
