Biography* Mary Boykin Miller was born 31 March 1823 in Stateboro [sic], SC, eldest child of Mary Boykin and Stephen Decatur Miller, who had served as U.S. congressman and senator and in 1826 was elected governor of South Carolina as a proponent of nullification. Educated first at home and in Camden schools, Mary Miller was sent at 13 to a French boarding school in Charleston, where she remained for two years broken by a six-month stay on her father's cotton plantation in frontier Mississippi. In 1838 Miller died and Mary returned to Camden. On 23 April 1840 she married James Chesnut, Jr.(1815-85), only surviving son of one of South Carolina's largest landowners.

Mary spent most of the next 20 years in Camden and at Mulberry, her husband's family plantation. When James was elected to the Senate in 1858, his wife accompanied him to Washington where friendships were begun with many politicians who would become the leading figures of the Confederacy, among them Varina and Jefferson Davis. Following Lincoln's election, James Chesnut returned to South Carolina to participate in the drafting of an ordinance of secession and subsequently served in the Provisional Congress of the Confederate States of America. He served as aide to General P.G. T. Beauregard and President Jefferson Davis, and he achieved the rank of general. During the war, Mary accompained her husband to Charleston, Montgomery, Columbia, and Richmond, her drawing room always serving as a salon for the Confederate elite. From February 1861 to July 1865 she recorded her experiences in a series of diaries, which became the principal source material for her famous portrait of the Conferacy.

Following the war, the Chesnuts returned to Camden and worked unsuccessfully to extricate themselves from heavy debts. After a first abortive attempt in the 1870s to smooth the diaries into publishable form, Mary Chesnut tried her hand at fiction. She completed by never published three novels, then in the early 1880s expanded and extensively revised her diaries into the book now known as Mary Chesnut's Civil War (first published in truncated and poorly edited versions in 1905 and 1949 as A Diary from Dixie.

Although unfinished at the time of her death on 22 November 1886, Mary Chesnut's Civil War is generally acknowledged today as the finest literary work of the confederacy. Spiced by the aurthor's sharp intelligence, irreverent wit, and keen sense of irony and metaphorical vision, it uses a diary format to evoke a full, accurate picture of the South in civil war. Chesnut's book, valued as a rich historical source, owes much of its fascination to its juxtaposition of the loves and griefs of individuals against vast social upheaval and much of its power to the contrast and continuities drawn between the antelbellum world and war-torn country.

Birth of Son6 Aug 1813 His son Joseph Van Buren Brantley was born on 6 Aug 1813 at South Carolina
Relocation*circa 1817 He relocated circa 1817 at Conecuh Co., Alabama; The Creek Indians ceded much of South Alabama in 1814, and from part of this land, Monroe County was formed on 29 Jun 1815 by the Mississippi Territorial Governor. The Alabama Territory was created on 3 Mar 1817, and the AL Territorial legislature formed Conecuh County on 13 Feb 1818 from part of Monroe County.
     Prior to the settlement of Brooklyn proper, quite a community had been formed on Ard’s and Bottle creeks. There were in this community, as early as 1818, two stores, owned respectively by McConnell and George Feagin. There was also a school being taught here by Mr Graham, of Georgia; and a blacksmith shop, owned by John Brantley. No trace of the settlement, which was about six miles northwest of the present location of Brooklyn, remains. The last vestige has been obliterated by plantations. A Methodist church was erected in 1821; the pastor of which was Elder Alexander Travis.5

(Enumerated in the census but otherwise not identified is 1 F15-20 and 34 slaves.)8 
Research note* Ken Brantley of the Brantley Association, in a study on John/Jack Brantley, states, in support of an argument that John/Jack is a descendant of a Chatham Co., NC family, "The only other Brantley families in Beaufort Co., SC were also seen in [adjacent] Chatham Co., GA during the early and mid 1800s. Previous studies have indicated that these people seem to be all related to each other and given names there as well as other evidence, seems to point back to our Brantley family in Chatham Co., NC."
     Ken concludes, "I do suspect that John is closely related to the Joseph seen in Beaufort County also in 1800 and is possibly his brother. If so, we would lean toward the hypothesis that he was a descendant of the Chatham Co., NC family. There seems to be gathering evidence that these were among those who went to Georgia before the Revolution and left there soon afterwards and before the birth of these boys. While it is certainly speculation, my best guess would be that perhaps John and Joseph were grandsons of Joseph Brantley who died in Orange Co., NC in 1760. Other studies are underway dealing with this hypothesis. We are not firm and could be swayed otherwise with further study and the the discovery of conflicting information."
     If you have additional facts that might help solve the question of John/Jack Brantley's ancestry, please contact Ken Brantley or Warren Culpepper.2,9
