We have been researching a family mystery for a couple of generations now. We have a 2x great grandfather Thomas Jefferson Allen Branham (branham-214)  married Frances Jones (jones-24367) our only leads to his parents are documents of a claim to Earl of Roscomon. His half brother is William Henry Powell (powell-4877) married Sarah Rowland (Rowland-1519)

 

There mothers first name is Elizabeth (Dillon-993) and believed to be a Dillon. She was married 3 times. The first two husbands she sent to Ireland to claim her inheritance and both died on board ship and never arrived in Ireland. The third didn't go. We did find where she married a Samuel Campbell (Campbell-10029) .The two boys were her only children.

Documents attached to Thomas Branham claim pages 1-4 and a set of family notes.

 

Any help would be appreciated and you can contact me or Daryl Maxwell Maxwell-2297
