Thanks for your reply...

These are some pretty good leads, even though some of the info is different.

A much later census 1930 Randolph, lists him as William B. Brazel.

The Yelvertons were from the Stewart County Area, and many of their relatives are buried in the Providence Church Cememtery and Prvidence Canyon.

Since I last posted, we found William's death certificate and it shows his father's name as Mark, but this is suspect, in that I have not yet found even one Mark Brazel of any spelling that might be him in any census record in the tri-state area (at least via

Census Records I've found:

1880, Calhoun County, Ga., District 1123
BRAZIL, William H. (?) age 17, living in Wilkinson household as laborer
This may or may not be our William.

1900, Calhoun County, Ga., District 1123
BRAZWELL, Will, age 34, b. Aug, 1865, married 15 yrs., Farmer
Ida, age 31, b. June 1867
Susie,age 14, b. Sept 1885, In School
Guss, age 12, b. Nov. 1888, In School
Benn, age 8, b. Aug 1891 (?), In School
Allen, age 6, b. May 1894 (?)

1910, Calhoun County, GA., District 1123
BRAZZEL, Will,age 50 (?), married 27 yrs., Farmer
Ida, age 41
Benn, age 15
Als (?), age 14

William B. BRAZEL, b. 1863/64, d. 1944, m. date unknown to Ida JONES (b. June
1867 and d. between 1910 and 1930.

In the 1930 Randolph Co., GA Census, he appears as a widower, and a boarder in
the home of Mrs. Willie Hooks and family. He is listed as having been born in
GA. His death certificate lists his father's name as something that looks like
Mark (? nearly illegible) but could be Mack, etc, ... Brazel.

William and Ida's children:
Susie Brazel, b. 1885, m. unknown, d. unknown
Gus Brazel, b. 1888 d. date unknown, married to Willie Bascome Perkins
Aubary Gus Brazel is their eldest child.
Ben B. Brazel, b. 1896, d. 1963, married date unknown to Sarah Elizabeth
"Lizzie" Yelverton.
Allen Brazel, b. May 1897. d. (murdered) December 1925, married Pearlie Mae (Grant??)

Iím pretty sure they were all born in Georgia, but Coffee County , Al keeps coming up in their life too.

Ben stayed in Georgia
Gus went to Sante Fe, New Mexico after WWI
Allen moved to Holmes Couinty FL and the Largo, FL area, and died in 1925.

Ben B. and Lizzie Yelverton Brazel's children:
Kenneth, b. 1915, d. 1999, married Mildred _______
Walter James, b. 1920, d. 198?, married Eugenia ________
W. B. (that was his name, just initials!), never married
Benjamin, Jr., b. 1918, d. 1987, married Eunice Shattles
Raz Warren, b. 1923, d. 1979, married Janet Alcyon Nichols
(these are my wife, Christie's parents)
Charles Lee, b. ? d. 2001, married Rebecca (Beck, Becky) Conley
Geraldine, b. ?, living, married Eugene Kierce
There may have been another son that died an infant, b. ?, Evon James (?)

Nothing I have found so far ties this family into other Brazels.

Other Brazels found in 1850 Randolph Co., GA census is Precilla and Alsey
(2)different households).

Valentine Brazel is found in Stewart Co., GA History (a neighboring county). I believe he has turned out to be a Bracewell or Braswell.

Our Brazel's DNA print matches Brazeal and Breazeale.
