Braswell, John and Martha

John Braswell and Martha F. Bearde Braswell with William Braswell
Smith County, Tennessee

These are the great-grandparents of Betty Jo Estes (daughter of Harvey Clifton Estes and Willie Mildred McGee Estes). The boy in the photo is Betty's great-uncle.

Betty's grandmother was Bettie E. Braswell who married James Willie McGee in Smith County, Tennessee, December 9th 1894. They resided then in Cannon County, Tennessee. She had a younger brother William that moved to Texas.

The photo was in Betty's great-grandfather's possessions when he passed away and her mother had written on the back of it who they were in relation to her. She had spelled their last names as Brazell.
