    • Subject: family lines Date: Thu, 26 Jul 2001 14:25:28 -0500 From: Broomfield To: joldham@indy.net Dear Jan,

      We corresponded several years ago about families we have in common. I am looking into the Bronston line again and had some questions abo ut the record in GenServ. Sometimes they get things mixed up in their entries and I believe they did in the one you have for Thomas Springer Bronston.

      We were in Madison County recently and visited the cemetery to see if we could locate the grave sites and take some pictures. I had not been to the cemetery for some time and did not realize there was a large monument for the Bronston families. I also did not have the information that Thomas was born in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. We went to Eastern again and looked in the family file there. I knew that his mother was Mary Ann Springer, but still know nothing about his father. And nothing else about the Springers.

      Have you found any new information about the Bronston line? Since learning about Chambersburg, I have been looking into the Franklin County, Pa. records, but have found nothing to connect to this family. There was something in the family file at Eastern about a stepmother or father and somehow I failed to copy that page!

      Would like to hear from you if you can shed any new light on the Bronston family. The Wyatt lady who submitted the information for the family fi e thought the name might have been spelled Bronson.

      I did find that Lucy Clark Bronston died September 19, 1846. That date was not in your GenServ record.

      Thank you,

      Elizabeth Broomfield

      Note:
      There always seems to be some misunderstanding about the 2 Thos Springer Bronstons of Richmond, Madison Co, KY
      The Rev Thomas Springer Bronston (Sr) came to KY from PA along with his brother Jacob.
      Rev. T. S. Bronston md Lucy Clark and lived in Madison Co KY.
      Jacob Bronston md Nancy Hollyman and lived in Lexington,Fayette, KY. When Jacob and Nancy died Thomas and Lucy raised their children, including Thomas Springer Bronston (Jr) and young Jacob Bronston, who later moved to Kansas.
      'Little Tom' (TSB Jr) married his first cousin Sallie Ann Bronston, daughter of Thomas and Lucy. She was the first of his 3 wives. Charles Jacob Bronston was the only child of this marriage.
