In 1846 Richard Hancock BRANDON (1809-1854) and his wife Magdalena Mary FAVORITE (1814-1891) bought a 160-acre farm in Macomb. They arrived in Macomb in 1839. Their arrival coincided with Joseph Smith's arrival at Nauvoo. They were Republican and attended the Presbyterian church in Fountain Green. They had eleven children. At one point (date?), some of the family moved to Iowa City IA where Richard died in 1854 of cholera. Magdalena moved back to a town near Macomb, where she died in 1891 at the age of 77. The children's names were James BRANDON(1838-1911; m. Sarah Jane MARSHALL), Elias M. BRANDON, Teresine C. BRANDON( -1889), Julia A. BRANDON, Gailbraith Lynn BRANDON *my ancestor*(1839-1895; m. Narcissa Lee SMITH), George Matthew BRANDON (1842-1900; m. Laura Ann GEDDES), Richard Hancock BRANDON (1843-1863), Eddie BRANDON (1845-1846), Mary A. BRANDON (1848-1854), Elizabeth M. BRANDON (1849-1905), Edwrad Hancock BRANDON (1855-1901, m. Addie UNDERKOPFLER). Many of the family members are buried in a cemetery in Fountain Green. (Which cemetery?) I'm curious to know about Gailbraith Lynn BRANDON's short service in the Civil War. Why was he discharged? My mother believes it was mustard gas poisoning. He fought in Co. A 118th Illinois (mounted) Infantry. He was discharged in Springfield. Where was the family farm? Richard B. left it to Gailbraith Lynn B. in 1854. What attracted the Brandons to Macomb? They came from Dayton OH and Huntingdon PA in 1839. Was it the rich soil, the offer of 160 acres of land if they farmed it, John Deere steel plow, which had been perfected several years before, and the Illinois legislatures approval of dollars to build a railroad network. Or were they attracted to the area by Joseph Smith and the Mormon missionary movement? Did they have anything to do with the Smith brothers' 1846 "execution" at the Carthage jail? Any information you can provide would be deeply appreciated. I am compiling a family history to present to my mother, Nancy *Brandon* ALLEN later this month, but I'd appreciate hearing from you anytime. Please contact me if I can help in your searches. Thank you.;
