Headstones

The first of a series of pictures from my trip to see my mom. Right after I arrived early in the morning after taking the redeye, we went straight to Versailles, OH where several of my ancestors were buried. There may be more than these three, there were certainly many other Brandons, many of which I could identify from documents I have as various sorts of distant cousins. But on this trip anyway we only found these three who were direct ancestors.

The stones above are for:

I actually haven’t gotten too much farther on the Brandon line of my research, but what I have done so far indicates that David Clement’s father Robert G Brandon should also be in that same cemetery, but we did not find him. I suspect there are more as well though, as the Brandon’s lived in that area for a couple more generations back. Well, I’m sure I’ll go back again someday to find more of them.

We did though find many many other Brandon cousins, especially in the older portion of the cemetery. As I said, that part of the family was based there for many generations.

Anyway, that was the first thing I did once I got to Ohio. Tramp around a small town grave yard for an hour or so with my mother looking for ancestors and cousins.
