Reuben Bramblett (1734-1807)

Court papers clearing title from Martin Pickett on 500 acres...actually traded with Pickett his 150 acres in VA (bought from David Darnall, see records) for 500 acres in KY. Will filed in Bourbon Co. KY, also mentions land he claimed from Martin Pickett. So many papers exist on Reuben, there is NO mistaking where he came from, where he went, died, etc. (Jean Day) -
