I am searching for information on Emily Brunson from Enterprise, AL. who married Seth Avan Cotton, they had 8 children. Charlie, Ellie, Rubic, Lucy, Emma (died at 3 mos), Massie Fate, Avelina Andrew (my grandfather.) She died during childbirth and is supposed to be buried at Cool Springs Church Cemetery in Coffee Co. Al. (Could not locate this grave.) She is in the 1870 census with the family but not in the 1880 census of Dale Co AL. Seth Avan Emily are my gr grandparents, they lived in Dale Co.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I believe your Emily may be the oldest daughter of Jonathan J. Brunson and Rebecca Carter. Her full name was Elizabeth Jane Brunson, born abt 1844 according to census records. My great-grandmother Sarah Ann Brunson was one of her younger sisters and is also supposed to be buried at Cool Springs with her husband James E. Nichols whose mother was Harriett MaryAnn Cotton. I believe she is a daughter of Seth Joseph Cotton. Email me and let's exchange info.

Other surnames in this family include: Rutherford, Daniel, and Bond. ALso had relatives in Pike Co. Thanks for sharing, my email address is elcourtney @
