Kindred Bracewell, Bryant & Joshua Daughtrey

Bryant & Joshua Daughtry move from Emanuel Co., GA after 1820 where their father Jacob Daughtrey was listed on the same census page with Kindred Braswell Sr. We next find them in Houston County not far from William P. Downman who married the widow of Richard Bracewell of Laurens Co., GA with brothers Sampson & James, descendants of Richard Braswell III.

Census Roll 18:

Beverly O. Downman. Year: 1830; , Houston, Georgia; Pg: 263.
William P. Downman. Year: 1830; , Houston, Georgia; Pg: 263.
Bryant Daughtry. Year: 1830; , Houston, Georgia; Pg: 261.
Joshua Daughtry. Year: 1830; , Houston, Georgia; Pg: 281.

1832 – March 17, JOSIAH JOHNSON of Bibb Co., GA, to BEVERLY DOWNMAN of Houston Co., GA, 202 ½ acres, Witness: WILLIAM P. DOWNMAN, KENDREAD (X) BRADEWELL (page 408, Houston Co., GA Deed Book E, 1831-1834)

From a Daughtrey researcher:

Bryant DAUGHTRY b. abt. 1795 prob. in Screven Co. GA, son of Jacob and UNKNOWN (Bird) DAUGHTRY of Emanuel, d. aft 1867 in Houston Co. GA, m. (1) 1818 to Nancy NEEL, m. (2) 1832 to Cynthia K. DOLLAR.

Bryant received two grants totaling 1,400 acres in Emanuel in 1816 and was enum. there 1820. By 1830 he had moved his family to Houston Co., where he was enum. 1830-1850. He was not enum. 1860 and is presumed to have d. bef. that date.

According to _Laurens County Legal Records_, Winnifred Carlisle Braswell married William P. Downman (I'm not sure of the year). In 1820, George Linder was appointed guardian of Kindred and Allen Braswell, since they were still minors. Commissioners to divide the estate of Richard Braswell deemed it impractical (January, 1821) and it was decided to auction off the estate the first Tuesday in April, 1821. In July, 1827, "William P. Downman, in right of his wife, Winifed Downman (widow of deceased [Richard] Braswell), petitioned for right to sue upon bond of James Braswell and securities Bryan Allen and Sampson Braswell [brother of the deceased Richard], Downman also guardian of Kindred Braswell and Allen Braswell."

Interesting is the will of Robert Braswell, (uncle of Richard Braswell III) wherein he names his daughter Sarah Daughtry and appoints loving friends James Bryant and Joshuay Daughtrey to be his executors, Joshua being Robert's son in law, who has a brother named Bryant Daughtry.
