|John Brantley was born ca 1723-1730 in Isle of Wight
County, Virginia. We maintain that he was the son of James
Brantley who died in Isle of Wight County in 1741. John and his
wife, Elizabeth left Va in 1764 and went to Halifax County, NC and
later to Edgecombe County. He died in Nash county in 1785.
Among his known children were Matthew Brantley, Jacob Brantley, John
Brantley, Jr. and Lydia Brantley. There were likely several
others. Many of John's descendants live in the Nash County area
today and there are countless descendants throughout the nation.
