James C. Brannan - Alvarado, TX ?mayor ?obit ?will
Posted by: Mary Henderson Askew (ID *****3817) Date: March 14, 2011 at 14:31:16
  of 797

In an article dated 21 Dec 1889 about a meeting of the "Alvarado Camp of Ex-Confederate Veterans," my great-grandfather, James Clarence Brannan, was referred to as "The Hon. J. C. Brannon" and someone has said he was major of Alvarado for a time. Can anyone verify this or suggest a resource?

Also have not been able to find an obit or a will. He died in Alvarado on 26 Feb 1899 leaving wife Virginia Lee (Maxey) Brannan and nine children. The widow and family were still in Alvarado for the 1900 Census.

Many thanks!
