I am editor of two vols of Bransford Fam Hy and living in
SE AL. Robert Bransford (bro of my gr gr gr grandfather, Abraham, who went in 1817 from VA to N AL), ws born in Buckingham Co, VA, July 5, 1786; marr Jane Hill, sister of John Hill, who was a member of congress fromLynchburg district. He also moved to Madison Co, AL in 1817, where he
marr second to Jane Gardiner. He and first wife had five children. He was son of John Bransford, II and Judith Amomonet, a French Huguenot emigrant. They lived for awhle in King Wm Parish, VA. John's father, John Bransford came to America, to VA in 1729 from England, by way of Barbados.
About this time, several of the other Bransfords left VA
and went to Tenn and Ky. So it appears that Robert and family went on up to Smith County, Tn, and believe some of the other Bransfords ended up there.
