Re: Another Bruffey line beginning in Va

In Reply to: Another Bruffey line beginning in Va by Ron Mitchell of 65

I just reviewed your message after looking at what I've recently gathered (thanks to Craig Fowler and the Montana Bruffey sites and the rootweb contributors) on the Iowa John Bruffey line and the Illinois John Bruffey, trying to link them up to the John Bruffeys who were in Pochahontas and Greenbrier Counties WV in early 1800's. I think the Iowa John, born 1808, is the John Jr. on the 1831 - 1844 tax rolls, and the one in Illinois, born 1810 or 1811 is the son of Mark Bruffey, born 1791. My grandmother's grandfather was Mark's son George Washington Bruffey, born 1815. The John who married Margaret Hill and moved west, per the newspaper article, was John Allen Bruffey born 1833, 25 yrs after John Jr. Then again, I may be wrong; it's only taken me a few years to come to this conclusion. We'd always thought George W. was an only child, since no mention of a living brother in his father's letters to him or in newspaper article on Bruffeys.
