  • Notes 
    • Good Morning, Michael David:

      My wife and I just completed a "tour" of the web site. As
      Darth Vader would say,
      "Impressive!" We noted that my grandfather (Orvel Theosses)
      is listed and then under Brazfield spelling, Blaine H. - his
      son, my uncle. My father Gene (N.Jene) is the last
      living child of Orvel. According to family story: Orvel
      came to New Mexico between
      1919 and early twenties with his three sons (Olin, Blain,
      Gene) after the death of my
      grandmother Gladys(Louvanna) Nations Brassfield in 1918.
      According to the McAllister book ( as told to us), that is
      how they were listed My Dad has tried to find
      his birth records in both Oklahoma and Arkansas to no
      avail. Orvel's sisters, Ettie Mae and Mary Anne, settled in
      NM after their marriages also. We have been in contact with
      Ettie's daughter Ruby, living in Silver City NM; but have
      no information
      contact with any other of grandpa's kin.

      My Grandfather Changed Brassfield to Brazfield, married
      Emelia Lajuenesse of Manzano NM, and had three children (
      Opel, Claude, and Dewey - they have passed on). He was
      known as Dewey or DB and his nickname was "Shorty." The
      Brazfields
      are all from his line and we are in Alaska, Pennslyvannia,
      California, Colorado, Arizona
      and thus the name in the phone book will produce a family
      member.

      Hope to provide additional info in future, once I can find
      compatible software, unfort-
      unately I have an iMac. I noted you have a copy of the
      McAllister book and we tried
      to see if it was available from the "link" you have posted,
      but it was not listed; is it
      possible to get just a copy of the page listing my
      Greatgrandfather Thomas Benton's
      children, which has my Dad's and his older brothers listed.
      Will gladly pay, if possible,
      for what you could send us. Please let me know. Thank you.

      Sincerely yours,

      Antonio Luis Brazfield

      Mike,
      Thanks for your response. On the 'nickname', I was referring to grandpa
      Orvel.
      He was nicknamed "shorty" and was also referred to as 'Dewey'. On dates for
      his wedding, birth, or death, I not sure. I can try to find out for some of
      my cousins.
      Anyway I certainly would greatly appreciate getting relevant pages from the
      Brasfield-Brassfield Genealogy Book by Anna McAllister.
      My mailing address:

      Antonio L Brazfield
      17 Cedar Pl.
      Los Lunas, NM 87031

      Although my name is Antonio, everyone calls me Tony. Well anyway you have a
      great day. Until next time.

      Thanks again

      Tony
