A Stray James Braswell

The following records show that a "stray" James Braswell was closely associated with David & Nancy's son William Braswell (who married Susan) I think Arthur Braswell's very close association with the Peacock family goes beyond Washington County Georgia. Is this James Braswell the son of David Braswell & Nancy Rutherford? And William's brother?



1792 - January 20, Isaac Folly (Georgetown District, South Carolina) to William Braswell
, 20 pounds, 200 acres in Robeson County on S side of Drowning Creek & S side of Ashpole Swamp, N. of the two open meadows called the two Sisters, conveyed from Meedy Lamb to Isaac Bird & from Isaac Bird to Isaac Folly. Wit: Neill McArthur, James Braswell & William Phillips. (Robeson Co., NC Book F, pp. 85-86)

This land was gift deeded to William's sons, Rutherford and Allen April 2, 1796.

1793 - May 2, William Braswell to Arthur Braswell, Bill of Sale: 100 pounds, a sorrel mare & colt, one gray mare, 12 head of hogs, 5 head of sheep, 5 head of Yus, two feather beds & furniture, one pot, one Rifle Gun, 6 pewter Basons, 6 pewter plates, case of knives, one pane of cotton cards, the Crop of Corn & Potatoes now standing. Wit: Matthew Jones & James Braswell. (Robeson Co., NC Book D, pp. 168-169)

1796 - April 2, William Braswell to Sons, Rutherford Braswell & Allen Braswell, Deed of Gift; for "natural love and affection", 150 acres to each being two tracts: (1) 200 acres on S side of Ashpole Swamp, near the two open meadows called the two Sisters; & (2) 100 acres on W side of Ashpole & N side of the two sisters, adj. Joshua Clibourn. First tract pat. by Meedy Lamb on 11 November 1779 & second tract pat. by William Phillips on 26 November 1789. Wit: Josiah Barnes. (Robeson Co., NC Book F, pp. 82-83)

James Braswell was born by 1777, before David Braswell died, intestate. Why did Samuel Peacock sell land to James Braswell, who most certainly had the same DNA as William, and why did Jethro Deans sell James Braswell's land? Did James Braswell marry Elizabeth Peacock?


1798 - January 20, Samuel Peacock to James Brasswell in consideration of 5 pounds sterling paid by Jas. Brasswell sold unto James Brasswell a piece of land of 20 acres on Jumping Gully in the fork of Jesse Winslows Mill Swamp. Samuel Peacock. Witnesses: Holloway Abbott, Jesse Winslow. Probated by Jesse Winslow 10 February 1798 before Valentine Rowell, J.P. (Abstracts of Marion County SC Deed Books "O" and "P" Pg 133-134)

1798 - January 29, Holloway Abbott to James Braswell in consideration of 25 pounds sterling paid by James Brasswell sold unto James Brasswell a certain piece of land containing 157 acres beginning at a gum in branch etc being part of two tracts of land granted to Holly Abbott 19 February 1791 lying on both sides of Jumping Gully. Signed: Holloway Abbott. Witnesses: Jesse Winslow, John Abbott. Probated by Jesse Winslow 10 February 1798 before Valentine Rowell. (Abstracts of Marion County SC Deed Books "O" and "P" Pg 132)

1798 - January 29, Samuel Peacock of Liberty County South Carolina to Jesse Winslow of same place for L155 sterling 438 acres beginning at mouth of Jumping Gully up Beaver damn Swamp to Brown's line to branch...to the Road to line between James Brazel & myself to Halloway Abbot to Mildam part of two tracts granted to John Cox 1 March 1775, the other part granted to Holloway Abbot 2 July 1792 afsd tract of 438 acres. Signed: Samuel Peacock. Wit: Holloway Abbott, James Basswell (also spelled Brassell) Proved before Volentine Rowell, JP, 10 February 1798. Recorded 7 July 1806.

Archibald Peacock- Source Citation: Year: 1800; Census Place: Liberty, Marion District, South Carolina; Roll: 49; Page: 441; Image: 68; Family History Library Film: 181424. 7 names between Henry Braswell & Archibald Peacock who is Uriah's borther.


1814 - Samuel Peacock III died in Washington Co., GA. (Peacock Family Association)

I THINK James Braswell has died and that's why his land is being sold by Jethro Deans who was married to Sophia Peacock, daughter of Uriah. Arthur Braswell lived next to Uriah in Washington Co. GA Is Jethro Deans the brother in law of James Braswell?


1817 - November 3, Jethro Deans to Henry Blanchet indenture made between Jethro Deans of Georgia and Henry Blanchet of South Carolina Jethro in consideration of $170.00 paid by Henry Blanchet sold unto Henry that tract of land containing 177 acres more or less conveyed by two deeds both are dated 29 January 1798 one for 20 acres and the other for 157 First conveyed from Holloway Abbott to Jas. Brasswell Second from Samuel Peacock to said Brasswell (above date) signed Jethro Deans. Witnesses: Ebenezer Thompson, D. Carmichael, J.P. Probated by Duncan Carmichael before J.B. Hays, J.P. 15 October 1831. (Abstracts of Marion County SC Deed Books "O" and "P" Pg 134-135)

1820 LAND LOTTERY WINNERS FOR GEORGIA:

APPLING Co. GA LAND DRAW
Elizabeth Brazel (Widow) lived in Wilkinson County GA Is Elizabeth a Peacock?
James Brazils orphans lived in Wilkinson County GA Is Arthur Braswell who shows up in Wilkinson Co., GA on the 1820 census one of the orphans?

Levy Peacock brother of Uriah didn't live close to Arthur Braswell but in same county:
