Notes for Redrick Parsons Bruton:
After Reddick and Catherine were married they moved from Montgomery Co NC to Richmond Co NC. Shortly after the deaths of his wife and daughter in 1832 he left NC, leaving his two sons with his parents and moved to Alabama. He married Second wife Sarah Wade Derden and He and his family moved from Alabama to Louisiana around 1840 as the first evidence is found in records of Union Parish, where he and his wife Sarah sold land to Anna Hosey Cooper. In this deed dated 11/13/1841 the property is identified as that property purchased by R P Bruton in 9/1840 and recorded in Ouachita Parish LA. Union Parish was originally part of Quaachita Parish and was formed in 1839. He evidently moved to Louisiana with a number of other Alabamians who migrated west during this period. They crossed the Ouachita River about 25 miles above Monroe entering Union Parish, whose eastern boundary is the Ouachita River. Since that time the spot on the river where they crossed, has been known as Alabama Landing. It is also believed that the town of Marion LA where some of them settled was named for Marion Al. from where a number of them came. Reddick purchased land northeast of Farmerville on the north side of Bayou de Loutre in Union Parish, LA and was farming in 1850 according to the union Parish census of that year.

Reddick was like his grandfather William both a farmer and preacher. He was licensed to preach in the Mississippi Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1840. In 1848 he was ordained as a Deacon and at a later date as an Elder. He preached in union Parish LA for 39 years. In addition to his farming and preaching he was appointed tax collector for Union Parish from 1869 to 1871. On Sunday evening, 4/6/1879 while returning home from preaching in a small community about 15 miles from his home he was stricken evidently with either a heart attack or stroke. He stopped with friends to rest for awhile but when it became apparent that he would be unable to sit his horse for the trip home, word was sent to his family to come and get him. The family brought him home in a wagon and the following Tuesday 4/8/1879 he passed away. He is buried in the Farmerville City Cemetery Farmerville LA.

      143. Arena Ellis, died September 10, 1855. She was the daughter of 286. B C Ellis.

Notes for William Best Thompson:
Family legend has it that he was a livestock merchant (horse trader) and was kicked by one of several mules which he had just purchased and this caused his death. His widow Arena married James Petit in late 185. In 1855 property was sold from the estate of W B Thompson. When Arena died later in 1855 Dr William D M Bruton was appointed tutor for the minor Thompson children.

William B Thompson JR si shown to be representing the heirs of William B Thompson, deceased, in the sale of some family owned land. He was an attorney living in the New Orleans at this time. It is not known whether he is the son of Willima Best Thompson. It is not likely he was the son of Willima and Arena , however Arena could have been and in all probability was William's second wife.

  Notes for William David McMillian Bruton:
Dr Bruton had to be buried at night because the body was beginning to mortify and he couldn't be kept out any longer. Also according the his cousin named Bilberry when he contracted typhoid he refused to quit treating his patients and this cased him to die much quicker because he road horseback to visit his patients. there was a typhoid fever outbreak in union Parish and Dr Bruton contracted it from one of his patients.

William Bruton was a medical doctor who lived with his family near Marion LA. A small town about 20 miles northeast of Farmerville. Dr Bruton treated patients in and around both Marion and Farmerville, riding horseback and carrying his medical paraphernalia and medicines in his saddle bags. At he death of William in 1878 George A Bruton a younger son of Reddick and a half brother to William was appointed under tutor fro the minor children of William along with Mary Bruton, the widow of William who was appointed tutrix. Mary was also the sister of Geore's wife Frances Irene.
