Hi, Ralph So glad you got to meet our family but I have lost a contact email address for you so I am postiing this here. Did you make your move to Woodburn? I was just there visiting my sister for a month and now back in Florida. We have came across a puzzle and I need to know if you may have an answer. New family info says that "Branam" was actually James Barney Branam's mother's maiden name. She, Mattie Branam, was married to an unknown "Pleasant" and when she got pregnant, he left her so she used her surname Branam to spite him. Have you ever heard this story? Thanks again for all of the info and your time. Take care and hope to hear from you again.
