Biography* Letter of March 20, 1968 to Mrs. Edgar Perkins, Box 734, Lynn Haven, Fla. 32444
Dear Mrs. Perkins:
     Your letter of March 15, 1968 was read with interest. Yes, I am from Conecuh County, Ala. I was born and reared in Burnt Corn which is on the line between Conecuh and Monroe counties. There seem to have been several lines of Brantleys in those two counties, but I have never been able to establish a connection between them. My inability to do this, however, does not rule out a relationship between them. I wish I knew more about their beginnings.
     The thought occurs to me that Mr. Thomas M. Thames, Jr. of Laurel, Miss. may be of help to you in connection with the Brantleys in and around Brooklyn, Ala. He is associated with Reeder, Street & Thames, Inc., and his address in Laurel is 407 Central Avenue, P.O. Box 145. He is of the Joseph V. Brantley line or has connections with that line. In a letter, dated May 2, 1964, which he wrote to Mrs. Lennis E. Shelton, 2616 Poplar Street, Montgomery, Ala. 36107 (with carbon copy to me) he says:
     "Information on the tombstone in Brooklyn Cemetery in Alabama reveals that Joseph V. Brantley was born August 6, 1813 and died March 10, 1893. There is buried next to Joseph V. Brantley, his daughter Elizaberth Brantley Thames and her husband, Cornelius A. Thames. The grave of Emily Katherine Travis, wife of Joseph V. Brantley, is unknown. Emily Katherine Travis was a sister to William Barrett Travis, 'Hero of the Alamo'."
     Mr. Thames goes on to say that "Mother and father of Emily Katherine Travis were Mark Travis and Jemmia Stallworth. Mark Travis was born October 6, 1783 and died September 15, 1836. Mark Travis was a pioneer farmer of Conecuh County, Alabama. He was born in the Edgefield District, South Carolina. It is to be noted in the Alabama history the following is stated: 'He was among the early pioneer farmers in Alabama, and at the time of his death had accumulated considerable substance including his home of several hundred acres of land, well stocked, a dozen slaves and several hundred head of cattle. He was a missionary Baptist, married January 1, 1808, near Redbank Church, Edgefield District, South Carolina, to Jemmia, daughter of William and another Jemmia Stallworth'."
     Quoting further from Mr. Thames' letter: "I assume that Mark Travis is also buried in the Sparta Cemetery or what is know as the Old Beulah Cemetery. The parents of Mark Travis were Barrett Travis and Elizabeth Deloach. It is to be noted that Barrett Travis was a soldier of the Revolutionary War and is so listed in the book called 'South Carolinians in the Revolutionary War'. It is also to be noted that there is a history of Edgefield County, South Carolina that also gives a considerable writeup of Barrett Travis and his family. It is to be noted that the Travis and Deloach families came to this country from Ireland. The father and mother of Jemmia Stallworth are William Stallworth and Jemmia Tripp. These people were also residing in Edgefield District, South Carolina. Jemmia Tripp was a daughter of Jemmia McNamara, who was also from Ireland."
     Mr. Thames in a letter to me, dated July 16, 1962, says "Elizabeth Brantley, who is the daughter of Joseph V. Brantley, married Cornelius A. Thames. I have a good bit of information after Joseph V. Brantley but none before him."
     Mrs. Lennie E. Shelton, 2616 Poplar Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36107, in a letter to me, dated January 20, 1964, says: "I am a descendant of Francis Mantle (Mantel?) Brantley born 1807 in South Carolina, died in Escambia County, Alabama between 1870 and 1880, married Sarah Ann Jemima Travis (daughter of Mark Butler and Jemima (Stallworth) Travis, born September 12, 1812 in Edgefield District, South Carolina, died in Brewton, Alabama January 30, 1887. Emily Kathryn Travis (sister of Sarah Travis) married Joseph V. Brantley of Conecuh County. I do not know whether these two men were brothers of if they were sons of John Brantley who was in Sparta, Alabama in 1818."
     In looking through some of the Brantley material I have I find that I have an extra carbon copy of a letter I wrote to Mrs. Shelton on April 20, 1964. In it you will notice that I have advanced the theory that Joseph V. and Francis M. Brantley were brothers. For the theory I have no proof. It is sheer supposition, but nonetheless interesting.
     You might be interested in having a copy of Benjamin Franklin Riley's "History of Conecuh County, Alabama." This was published in 1881. I have brought out a reprint of it and will be glad to send you a copy for $4.00. I added an index to its 233 pages. Brooklyn is mentioned a good many times in it, John Brantley once, and the Travis references are numerous.
     I hope this has been of some help to you. Circumstances have been such as to prevent me bringing together all the Brantley notes and material which I have gathered. Perhaps when I reach retirement I will try to get it in better shape.
     Sincerely, J. Vernon Brantley, 1350 G Street, S.E., Washington, DC 20003. 
Reunion* A church homecoming is held annually on the 2nd Sunday of October at the Brooklyn Baptist Church, Conecuh Co., Alabama. It includes many descendants of Joseph Van Buren Brantley.

    Unaccounted for are 1F0-4 and 1F20-29. Perhaps this was Rosannah Cato, wife of William Barrett Travis, and a daughter. He abandoned his family early and by 1831 was living in Texas, never to return.
