DATE: 1 Dec 1997
NAME: Michael Woolridge
QUERY: Seeking information concerning the family of my great great grandparents Hugh Lewis and Frances (SUTHERLAND) BRAGG who married in 1814, Fluvanna County, Virginia.  They had quite a large family.  By 1840, they had migrated to Ross County, OH and the census shows a total of 12 living in their household.  By the time they appear on the 1850 census of Moultrie Co., IL, there are only 5 children then living in their household, plus Sarah SUTHERLAND, an aged blind female who is thought to be Mrs. BRAGG's mother.  I am seeking the date and place of death for Hugh Lewis & Frances BRAGG (still living in 1860), and Sarah SUTHERLAND.  I am unable to locate the death record of burial site for either of them in Moultrie County, IL. This family might possibly have gone to Missouri sometime after 1860.  I am also unable to find any information concerning the two youngest sons of Hugh Lewis & Frances BRAGG.  Does anyone know what ever happened to Thomas, b. ca. 1839, OH, and Henry, b. ca. 1840, OH?  Contact: DOROTHY D. BUTT; PO Box 359; Bethany, IL 61914;  She only has snail-mail, but you can contact her through me:) Alicia A. Woolridge by email:   or
