BRAGG, PETER M., SR.— "Obituary-Departed this life, at his residence in Lowndes County, Ala., on the 21st of May, Mr. Peter N. Bragg, Sr., A SOLDIER OF THE REVOLUTION, at the advanced age of 78 years.

 "Mr. Bragg, was a native of Virginia, born Fauquier County, March 4th, 1763; he entered the American Army under command of Gen. Greene, at the early age of 16; and was in two distinguished battles—that of Guilford Court House, N. C., and the one near Camden, S.C.
 
 
"At the close of the war, Mr. Bragg removed to Spartanburg District, S.C., where he resided about forty-six years, and moved thence, in December 1829, to Lowndes County, Ala., where he continued till his death. He was a member of the Baptist Church more than 40 years; and his irreproachable life and unstained character exemplify the honesty of his profession and the purity of his heart. He was no partisan in religious matters, but taking the Bible alone, as his standard of Christian profession and practice; he bowed to no other tribunal. If he ever erred it was an error of the judgment, not of heart. And it may fairly demand a doubt, whether in his degenerate age, any man ever lived more studiously the life of a Christian. To speak in terms most appropriate, of the domestic, social and moral worth of Peter N. Bragg in the narrow space assigned in Obituary, would be, to those who knew him, but slight praise, and only show the imbecility of a few presuming lines, which attempt to declare the virtuous acts and beneficent deeds characteristic of a long, industrious, enterprising and virtuous life; but let it suffice here to observe, that Mr. Bragg lived for his country, his fellow-man and his God.
 
 
"As a neighbor, he promptly discharged all the duties which the mutual obligation and reciprocal dependencies of society demand.
 
 
"As a citizen, he freely took part in all matters affecting our civil rights and municipal happiness. As a Christian, he was attentive and liberal to the indigent, merciful and humane to the afflicted, kind and hospitable to strangers, and just and merciful to all."—The Greenville Mountaineer, Greenville, S.C., June 12, 1841.

 

BRAGG, PETER NEWPORT, (1763-1841), served as private under General Greene at Guilford Court House. He was born in Fauquier County, Va.; died in Lowndes County, Alabama. D.A.R. Lineage Book, Vol. 119, page 64-5.

 

BRANDON, JOSIAH, Departed this life, in Lincoln County, Tenn., in the triumphs of Christian faith, on the 5th inst., in the 83rd year of his age, Rev. Josiah brandon. Brother Brandon had been an acceptable, useful, and highly exemplary member of the Methodist E. Church for near 60 years, and about 50 years of that time a devout, zealous and useful minister of the gospel of Christ, beloved by all who knew him. As a minister he was vigilant in watching the interests of our beloved Zion; he labored and prayed for her prosperity and success, and he was permitted by the great head of the church to live to see her borders extend far and wide, and see the blood stained banner wave in majestic triumph over many nations. As a citizen in the "land of the free and the home of the the brave," he, after having fought for the liberties of his country, spent a long and useful life in the enjoyment of that precious gift of Heaven to man, Liberty. He was ardently attached to the institutions of his country, rendering unto "Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." His house was a home for many years for all the ministers of Christ. Kind and hospitable to friends, generous and liberal to the fatherless and widow, and distressed; an indulgent father, the kind husband, the worthy citizen, the devout christian. He had prayed for many years, that when the fatal hour came for his final dissolution, that he might pass the dismal vale without he died he was happy all day, and in his usual health; at night he fell asleep in the arms of Jesus, without a murmur or a sigh escaping his lips. He has left an affectionate companion an the large circle of the relations to he followed Christ.

 "Another soul, dismissed from Earth's abode,
Is borne triumphant to the throne of God--

Where saints made perfect chant the song of love."- P.B.R.

BUSSEY, ZADOC. Recorded in Will Book 2, of Montgomery County, Alabama, page 217, is the will of Zadoc Bussey which was dated January 3, 1822, and which had been probated Nov. 2, 1825, in Edgefield County, South Carolina. In it, he names his wife Nancy, and his children George Bussey, John Bussey, Emmerson Bussey, Elizabeth Talley, Sebellah Boyd and Sally Searles, Executors named in the will were wife Nancy, son Emmerson, and nephew James L. Bussey. Its execution was witnessed by A. Edwards, Hezekiah Lunday and Samuel Edwards, all of Edgefield.

 

Records in Edgefield County Courthouse show that the son John died in 1823, in Edgefield, having married his second cousin, Frances Morgan; that Emmerson married Sally Bailey, that Elizabeth married William Talley, that Sebellah died before her mother and married John Boyd, and that Sally married Thomas Searles. The widow Nancy died in the "fall" of 1838.
 

Stub Indents by Salley, U-W p.32 lists Zadoc Bussey as a soldier in the Revolution in South Carolina.
 

He, Zadoc Bussey, is mentioned in the will of George Bussey (d. 1796) as a son, along with Letita, wife of Alexander Oden, who was also a soldier in the Revolution. The will of George Bussey names Sebellah Bussey as the testator's wife. Her surname is not known, but some of her descendants believe she was closely related to Zadoc Magruder, who removed from Maryland with the Busseys.
