Re: George Bruner
In Response To: Re: George Bruner ()
Billy's father George Bruner maybe a relative. Is this the same George Bruner that was captured by the south and held as prisoner during the war. His nephew (Joseph Bruner) which would be Billy's first cousin has an outstanding interview dated Feb. 28, 1938 by Journalist Effie S. Jackson. Billy's uncles were Rider, Daniel, John (Joseph Bruners father) and George (Billys father). Billy's grandfathers name was George also and Billy's father was possibly named after him.
If you are interested go to the University of Oklahoma Pioneer papers; Interview Joseph Bruner; Journalist: Effie S. Jackson, Feb 28, 1938, Sapulpa Oklahoma. Joseph was president of the American Federation of Indians.
If my facts are correct either George Jr. or George Sr. was married to a Phyllis Bruner (slave). George Jr. eventually married Anna (Bruner) Partridge: Children include
1st marriage may have been to his slave Phyllis children:
John Bruner (brother) married Lucy
Daniel Bruner (brother)
Ryder Bruner (brother)
