This is a photo of my step-grandparents, Paul Pettit, and Audria Maxine Brannon, probably around the time of their marriage in 1937.

I saw it when I was up visiting the folks last weekend, and they let me scan a copy with my little Flip-Pal.

Paul died in 1964, and Audria, in 2007. Both are buried in St. Joe Cemetery, just down the road from the Burris homeplace, in Pope County, AR.

I glance up a short distance north of my home and I see the old yard where Rev. Julian Brannon and his first wife, whose maiden name was Gadd, and their children, Sarah, Minerva, Betty Mary, Ancil, Joseph, Russell and Doonie, used to live. Julian's first wife died there in about the year 1864. Julian swapped farms with Rev. James Givens and moved to his new home, and James and his wife and children moved to their home. Rev. Julian Brannon and Rev. James Givens were both Baptist preachers. Julian, at that time was pastor of a church in Blount County, and in 1865 he was married to his second wife, whose maiden name was Hannah Bryant.

Julian and Hannah had two children whom they named Hannah Missouri and Nancy Jane. Hannah Missouri Brannon was born March 22, 1866. She professed faith in our Savior in early girlhood days and joined Bethlehem Baptist Church and remained a member of that church until her death, which occurred on June 29, 1934. She was married to Elijah Harris on December 14, 1884. Elijah Harris, son of Monroe and Oma Gibson Harris was born June 20,1857 and died May 14, 1934.

For almost half a century Hannah and Elijah traveled life's pathway together. They had nine children; Laura, Stella, Mary J., Francis, Benton, Charlie, Robert, Henry and Gib, all of whom are living and all are married except Henry. Besides their nine children they had fifty-one grandchildren.

Only six weeks and one day did Hannah live after her husband died. Both were buried in New Bethel Cemetery; Rev. Will Crye and Rev. Arthur White conducted Elijah's funeral services from New Bethel Church; Rev. George B. McCrary and Rev. Hoyt Shadden conducted Hannah's funeral services fron New Bethel Church. Elijah and Hannah had both been invalids for some years, Dr. Bagwell, Dr. Leonard and Dr. Kimbrough all gave them medical attention. Henry Harris stayed right with his parents and gave them all his time and attention for several years; now Henry is left alone at home the same as I am. Biereley Funeral Home had charge of the preparation for burial of the remains of both Elijah and Hannah.

Jane, I want to say to you here, that I took my aluminum dipper after your sister Hannah died, and went down to the home of Mrs. Callie Duggan and told her that I wanted to go to the old Bethlehem School House spring in her field and get me a drink of water where Hannah and I were so often together as schoolmates; and I said to her, "I want to call over the roll from memory, of the boys and girls who were our school mates there, now more then fifty years ago; and I want to write about this schoolmate who has now answered the roll call up yonder."

Callie said, "yes, Georgia, go drink again from the old school house spring in memory of Hannah, and also write something about her, for she is worthy of a tribute of respect."

And now this tribute is in memory of my schoolmate, Hannah, and Callie's cousin Elijah.

With kindest sympathy to you, Jane, Charlie, Henry and all the bereaved relatives, I am your friend.

Georgia A



This article first appeared under an Interesting News heading in the Route Six, Monroe Co (TN) Democrat on Wednesday, July 18, 1934. Before I found this, I was unaware of Julian Brannon's second marriage, so I knew nothing of Hannah Missouri (Brannon) Harris. Now, I've got a lot of details to sort out for her family.

Hannah Missouri Brannon was the first cousin, 4 times removed of my step-mom.

She was the oldest child of Samuel Manning and Elizabeth Hale, born in 1837 in Virginia. Her father moved the family from White County, TN, where they were found in the 1850 census, to McLeansboro, Hamilton Co., IL.

According to her sister Mary's obituary, four of her seven brothers enlisted in the Civil War and died in service.

Her parents died within weeks of each other in May 1859.

Rachel found work as a "domestic" in the household of Peter and Salley Lab by the time the enumerators took the 1860 census. She also had the care of her younger sister and brother, Sarah and Bethel.

Life must have been very hard.


Rachel married William S Fairweather on 17 Jan 1862 in Hamilton County.

William's family immigrated to the United States from Great Britain, sailing on the Nathaniel Hooper, which left Liverpool and docked at New York on 28 Jun 1841.

William was three years older than Rachel. She was his first wife, and the mother of his first 7 children.

Loss of family continued to follow Rachel. Her children were:
Sarah C Fairweather, 1863-1914
Mary Fairweather, born 1865
Samuel Fairweather, 2 Jan 1868-29 Feb 1868
James A Fairweather, 2 Dec 1870-17 Nov 1871
William Calvin Fairweather, 1871-1947
John Fairweather, 27 Oct 1875-10 Oct 1876
Charles Arthur Fairweather, born 1878.

Complications from Charles' birth may be what caused Rachel's death on 14 Mar 1878. She is buried in Presley Cemetery in Hamilton County, along with her youngest children and husband, William, who outlived three of his four wives. (William's third wife was Rachel's younger sister, Mary.)


It was Rachel's oldest daughter, Sarah, who carried the Manning line on to Arkansas.

Sarah C Fairweather married John William Brannon on 18 Oct 1881. Their son, William Earnest - a grandson Rachel never got to meet - was the grandfather of my dear stepmom.

There supposedly is a book about three Brannon brothers who came to the United States from Ireland. One of them was George. The book is said to document George's marriage to a Cherokee woman named Alkerny, meaning "Acorn Eyes."

I haven't seen the book, nor can I find the entire title of it. (Everyone just keeps writing that it's the book about the Brannons.) People who say they have knowledge of copies of it state that it was published in 1960 by the Lincoln, AR press.

The elusive book supposedly also states that the Brannons moved to Tennessee after the War of 1812. Since John was born in Tennessee in 1808, I have to wonder if someone has mixed up their Brannons.

So I don't know about the three brothers from Ireland. But I do know about John Brannon, born 15 Sep 1808, in Tennessee - probably Monroe County. His father was George Edward Brannon.


John Brannon married Nancy Webb, daughter of Judge Larkin Webb and his wife Sarah Bray, in 1829 in Monroe County. Sometime between the 1850 and 1860 censuses, John Brannon "removed" his family to northwest Arkansas, to Washington County.

Nancy Webb Brannon 1813-1910


John and Nancy had two sons, Benjamin (born 25 Apr 1830) and James L (born 26 Jun 1835).

Although the two brothers had no other siblings, when they married and began raising their own families in Benton County, AR, together they gave their parents 18 grandchildren.



Both brothers served in the Civil War, along with their father, fighting for the Union in the 1st Arkansas Cavalry. By 23 Nov 1863, James Brannon was discharged from service due to deafness and lung problems caused by the war. He was 28 years old.

James returned home to northwest Arkansas to his wife, Nancy Ann Philpott, and their children. Prior to his service in the war, he and Nancy had three children - John William, Benjamin, and Taylor Curtis Brannon. Between 1867 and 1871, they added four more children to the family - Margaret, James Munsey, Levada M and Floyd Philpott Brannon.

James was a physician and merchant in Mason Valley in Benton County, AR. James died in 1902 in Mason Valley, and was buried in Coffelt Cemetery, as are his parents. Nancy died in 1920 in Marion County, OR and is buried in Salem Pioneer Cemetery, in Salem Co., OR.

Fay Latrell and his brother Ray Cornell Brannon.

They were born in 1943. Fay died first, on August 25. Ray followed three days later.

I try to imagine how their parents, John and Delila Brannon, must have felt. Delila was only 18 years old herself.
