Jacob Brazell was a Revolutionary war soldier. He was married to Averilla. They had at least these children: Joseph, probably the husband of Hannah. James married to Sarah. William, married to Frances. Jacob and his family were from Richland County. He died some time before Feb. 10,1784 when a claim was filed by his son William on his mother's behalf.

See book for biographic info on Jacob and the Brazell family. A researcher found on Ancestry.com says that Jacob supplied beef for the Colonial Militia during the Revolutionary War.

He was "indented" to Joseph Kershaw, because his money was sent to Kershaw. He recieved a land grant in Richland County, SC on April 12 1769. Copy of source is Brazell file. Note NI522 From The Brazell Book by Clara Prince-Copy in posession of Cheryl Hudson Passey. Book is also in the South Carolina Library System.

The Brazell family have been, since their earliest settlement, and many now continue to be, residents of the section of Richland Ccounty known as "The Sandhills" (This section was called "The Sandhills" because of the very sandy condition of the land. The people had much difficulty in making the land produce).

The spelling of the name has been Brazell,Brazelle, Brazil, Braziel and Braswell in many of the early records. Brazell being the most popular.

Jacob Brazell is the earliest found. He recieved a land grant in Camden District, which included Richland County, on April 12, 1769. He enlisted in the Third Regiment in the Revolutionary War on July 9, 1777 and in 1779, he was listed under the command of John C. Smith. The Third South Carolina Regiment was a Richland County Regiment initially formed in 1775. Jacob had an Audited Account number 720, which showed that he furnished beef for the Continental Army. The beef was furnished in Dec. 1781, and Jacob Brazell signed his claim for payment on Aug. 22, 1783.

William Brazell, probably his son, signed for the "indents" on Feb. 10,1784, which indicates that Jacob was deceased at that date. Jacob Brazell also filed a claim for James Brazell, probably his son, who furnished two cattle to the Colonial Militia. The Estate file of Jacob Brazell is found in Camden District, Kershaw County, Box 10, package 310. Averilla Brazell, Jacob's wife, applied for Administratrix of his estate on Feb. 19,1787. The Citation was recorded on March 5,1787 by Lewis Collins. William Brazell was to be appointed administrator, but his application was left incomplete. A Didimus to Arthur Brown Ross to administer the oath of Administratrix to the estate of Jacob Brazell's Estate to Averilla Brazell on May 22,1787. The appraisers of the estate were Josiah Scott, Jacob Cherry and Paul Power, the Bond was filed by Averilla Brazell, relict of Jacob Brazell, William Nettles and Jacob Mack Kenney as sureties, May 18,1787. Jacob recieved eighteen pounds, no shillings and ten pence which was assigned to Joseph Kershaw. It was the custom of wealthy planters or bankers to advance money on the indents for only a portion of what the indents were worth. The planters, or bankers in turn, held the indents to collect the interest and the principle when the government was able to pay.

William and James Brazell were most likely Jacob's sons since they were linked to him in the Revolutionary War claim. They also lived after his death and were probably too young to serve in the war. It is also probable that Joseph Brazell is also his son as there are no other records of the Brazell family to justify a seperate line in Richland County.

The following is transcribed from Beiman Otis Prince's "The Brazell Family":

"John Brazell, called "Big John" was born 1794, the son of James Brazell and Sarah. He lived awhile in North Carolina where some of his children were born. He moved back to South Carolina where he became a member of the Jackson Creek Baptist Church. He was married to Martha Parnold, Born January 30, 1795, died March 6, 1876, buried with her husband at Macedonia Baptist Cemetery. Both John and Martha were active members of Jackson Creek Baptist Church until he was excluded from membership for selling six hogs that were not his. When the Church appointed two brethern to go to his house and tell him that the Church asked that he come before the body and give account to the charges, he sent word back to the Church that it was "none of their business". Having been assured by Reverend Uriah Lee that it was the Church's business, he came before the body and apologized. He told them that "about six months prior to me selling the six hogs, that came to my house and that I have advertised for their owner but I had not received any answer. Feeling that I had done what was right in the matter, I killed the hogs and sold the meat, since I had fed them for six months." The church accepted his answer and dismissed the charges.

Later, the Lees, Brazells and several other families at Jackson Creek came to a disagreement about "foot washing" and were dismissed from the congregation. They built a one room log house and started a new Church under the leadership of Reverend Uriah Lee and called it Macedonia Baptist Church, which was on Fort Jackson property in the latest land confiscation and the cemetery was moved just off Percival Road.

In deposition, John Brzaell stated that: "Elvinia Parnold, the child of Martha Brazell was taken away by Hiram Wilson and Isaac Hughes". Mr. Prince does not go into any further detail regarding the significance of this statement.
