Hi, I am researching my BRUNSON FAMILY on-line and discovered the town of Brunson,SC was named in honor on my ancestors.
"John, born 1642, in Hartford, Hartford Co., Connecticut, died after 11 January 1711 in South Carolina; married 25 October 1664 in Wethersfield, Hartford Co., Connecticut, Hannah Scott, born about 1647, died before 5 April 1723 in South Carolina. John and Hannah used the spelling Brunson and were the progenitors of that that name in South Carolina. Their descendants settled in Orangeburgh, and Brunson in Hartwell Co., South Carolina is named in their honor."
JOHN BRUNSON-HANNAH SCOTT to me is twelve generations.
I have gone from my 3rd to 14th Great-Grandparents in on-line researching the Brunson Family, in two days.
It is a nice surprise to read about your town.
I lived in Orangeburg,SC about a year. My husband grew up in and around Orangeburg and sadly neither of us has visited the Town of Brunson.
We aren't able to travel but if we could, we would make a visit to Brunson.
