Are you descended from Page?! How exciting if you are. He was estranged from the family after the War. There is reference made in Louisa court cases where Rebecca Napper is named in conjunction with Malachi Branham-Gibson as witnesses for their neighbors/family, and their children went by Napper name and Branham name. She died young- some of us believe with cancer. Cancer is very strong in this branch. There is no proof that she and Malachi were married that has been yet found but circumstantial evidence was there that they lived as husband and wife. Have you seen census records for Louisa that show Judith Napper/Napier and William Branham's family? Also court records that William's two sisters gave up rights to his property in favor of Judith after he died? If William and Judith were married, his sisters would have had no claim to his property.
