Belmont County
Ohio, USA
Death: Jan. 27, 1931
Moundsville
Marshall County
West Virginia, USA

The son of Charles Brandon and Sarah 'Sallie' Barker, he first married Susan Jane Shipley, July 4, 1874, Belmont County, Ohio. Their children - William born/died March 26, 1876, Hiram Herold (1877-1951), Edgar b1878, and Pearl (Spawn) 1883-1959, Mamie/Mary born July 9, 1888.* (On Mary's birth record it indicates she is the 7th child to Abraham and Jane.), Carl b Feb 1890.

(Note: there is a WV death record for a male infant Brandon, 20 days old, October 28, 1890. WV death record for female Brandon, age 1 month, 12 days, died 1891.)

Widowed in 1893, he married Dora Lindsey, December 27, 1894, Marshall County WV.

The 1900 census finds Abram (spelled Branson), widowed (?) coal miner, residing in Moundsville, Marshall, WV. Census gives his birthdate as March 1853. There are five children listed in household - Harry 23,(is this Hiram Herold?) Lola M 19, Pearl 15, Mamie 12, and Reese 5. Oddly, a second 1900 census lists Abraham, this time married with wife Dora, Marshall WV, and includes 3 children - Carl, Reese and Harry. Also it gives his birth year as 1862.

By the 1910 census, he is listed as divorced and residing with his son Reese and widowed Frances Mae (BAKER) Morehouse, listed as a servant. He was a coal miner.
He married Frances in 1917.

(Should anyone have more information on the children, please contact this contributor. * it is possible that Mammie married Crawford Lucas, 27 Aug 1904, Marshall WV.)
