Susanna Brumfield was born in Prince Edward County Virginia about 1743. She married John Gaulden (Gaulding), Jr. in Prince Edward County Virginia. She migrated with her husband and family through Orange County, North Carolina (1765 - Dr. Gaulden says the move to NC was to be with Susannah's father), finally settling in Sumter South Carolina.
Second Marriage to Samuel Lewis ?
After her husband John's death during the Revolutionary war, she, according to Dr. Gaulden's book, married Samuel Lewis and continued on to Liberty County Georgia where she lived the rest of her days. A Sussanah Mann married a Samuel Lewis in 1805 at Congregational Church, Midway, Liberty, Georgia. More research is needed to either prove or disprove this information.
A Robert Brumfield settled an estate in Londonderry, Chester County, Pennsylvania, 1739-40. One of his descendants, Robert Brownfield purchased from William Geers Gaulden (son of John and Susannah Brumfield Gaulden) the Millbrook Plantation on Mush Swamp in Sumter District, South Carolina in 1815.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Susannah by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Susannah:
