I am a descendant of John Brant and Mary Catherine Cale's son Henry Brant. My information from the marriage record of John Brant and Catherine Cales shows that Jacob Cales was deceased at the time of the marriage. Jacob's wife's name was Grizzel Handley. She appears to have moved to Greenbrier with John and her daughter Catherine. This was because she had family already living in Greenbrier. She is listed in the 1810 Greenbrier census.

I am trying to determine how John Brant fits into the picture. He appears to come out of the blue from I don't know where. It appears to me that the only reason that John went to Greebrier was because of the Handley family, and thus he became lost (in that I can't yet link him to his parents).

Another thing of interest is that a Jacob Kessler is also listed on the marriage bond of John and Catherine. The Kesslers also moved to Greenbrier with John, Catherine and Grizzel.

I have info that I can dig out of my records about the Cale and Hanley family and share. Do you have any info on the origins of John Brant?

It also appears that the Cales family had a strong link to the Burlington County, NJ area prior to the birth of Jacob.
