Dooley, Ellis, (son of Benjamin Franklin Dooley & Nancye Brackett) born Habersham, 1872 - died 1909
Brackett, Ben and Frank (2 little slave boys)

Felix W. Brackett & wife Asinatha (possibly Queen) were married abt 1830 North Carolina & they had 10 children who lived to adulthood & those 10 children married/had children

Louisa Brackett -their 5th child, married Clayborn Rothell 8 Oct 1879, it was her her 2nd marriage - her 1st husband was John E.Wilbanks married 16 Dec 1861 - he died before 1864, possibly in CivilWar??? (Not sure, need to look up his Civil War record. John E.Wilbanks was born abt 1838)

Nancye Brackett Dooley was married 27 Aug 1852 Habersham Co. also, to Benjamin Franklin Dooley, she was Felix W. Brackett & wife's 2nd child and she was born in Georgia,

their 1st child, a daughter was Lucy Jane Brackett, and born 18 Jul 1832 in North Carolina right before they moved to Habersham County, Ga.- Lucy Jane Brackett married Gabriel Sisk in 1851 Habersham Co. GA.

Henrietta Matilda Brackett aka "Matilda" 7th child of Felix & Asinatha, had 3 children, and lived together with her mother in Habersham County on the same property where the Brackett family cemetery still is.
Her son, James D. Brackett, married Lina Dooley 21 Jan 1900 Habersham Co., and then they lived there also.

Felix Benton Brackett was the last and 10th child of Felix W Brackett. He married Margaret Thacker 15 Oct 1871 Habersham Co, GA., they had a total of 5 children, 3 of which grew up and married.

There is some talk that Henrietta "Etta" Brackett bon 1877 Habersham County GA to Matilda Brackett, is also buried there, but 2 of her daughters insist that their mother was buried in the church Cemetery, that would be The Shiloh Baptist Church in Toccoa GA. Her brother, James D. Brackett is buried at the Shiloh Baptist Church Cemetery, so it would make sense. Etta's two daughters, are my Aunt Myrtle and Aunt "Belle" who told us that. But some people say she is buried in the Brackett Family Cemetery alongside her husband, Ellis Dooley. Ellis & Etta Brackett Dooley are my paternal grandparents.

The BRACKETT FAMILY CEMETERY is located at 3451 Camp Mikell Rd, Toccoa, in what is now, Stephens County, (was Habersham County then), Georgia.
