In 2013, twenty-five posts highlighted a family on Brackett Town Road in rural McDowell County in North Carolina. We covered the settlement of this valley in the 1700’s by the Brackett family and Upton family, now scattered. The Sprouse family has held property there since JJ Sprouse came from Virginia during the gold mining era of the late 1800’s. The county’s oldest continuously occupied house of 1760 is still in their family.

At the end of Brackett Town Road, is a neighbor who traces his lineage back to a manor house in Wales. Troy Wade Nanney has shown me charts and graphs from ancient societies that placed great emphasis on faithfulness to blood relations. His stories that go back to the 1400’s are fascinating, and I look forward to sharing them with you in “Nanney Saga,” starting in 2014 and continuing into 2015. Then we’ll go on to Dysartsville!

Thanks to Ian King, now there is more information available directly from the Nannau neighborhood in Wales: http://nannau.com

    Benjamin Brackett is part of my family tree who settled Brackett Town and some family members are buried in the grave yard there at Brackett Town cemetery.

      William, I’m so glad you found this series. I would love to hear your family stories and add them to the posts so others can enjoy them and respect the efforts of our founding fathers. After the Union Mills focus, I will get back to Dysartsville. We could stop in Brackett Town again.
