      After reading the will, I see that it was for Joseph Arthur Brasfield who was born 9/18/1879. He married Ora Buelah Ausborn on 10/9/1900. Are you any relation? Thanks again.

      *******************

      Michael...
      Glad you received it ok.

      Yes, I am related to him. My grandmother was Martha Z. Brasfield daughter of Lafayette Brasfield and Betty Massengale. She was one of Joe's sisters. She married William Rueben Bunn. If you're interested you could check out www.bunncrib.50megs.com
      I have some pictures of her and William as well as the rest of the Bunns.
