I do'nt know a George, I Know of John G Brittain
Who was born in S.C. in 1796 It could be that the G. might
stand for George. John G. was married to Sarah (lindsey) Brittain,
She was born in Tennessee in 1808, they moved to near Haysville in Dubois Co. Indiana in 1823,
Where they had two sons, William L. and John C. whicth is my
G.G.Granddad. John G. was a Carpenter, and Farmer. I am trying to find
out information on The Brittain's in S.C.
Maybe who John G.s dad was?

Would the John C. that you are talking about be John Cooper Brittain. He lived in the Wayne Co. Indiana area.

I am trying to find descendants of John G. Brittain and Sarah Lindsey. I have identified eight children of theirs. I am seeking descendants of their son Marion Lafayette "Lafe" Brittain. Lafe married Eliza Jane Mynatt in Dubois County, Indiana on Nov 25, 1867. Later Lafe and Eliza moved to Gibson County, Indiana. Any help is appreciated. I will share information I have. Mark Mynatt.

I have identified children of Lafe Brittain and Eliza Mynatt. Lafe 1836-1905 and Eliza 1849-1926 lived in Columbia Twp, Gibson Co. IN. Children I have found are:
Grant, Lorie and Jay born in Dubois Co with Mary, Orpha, Ernest and Nellie born in Gibson Co. Mary married to James Ammerman in 1907 in Gibson Co. Grant also married in Gibson Co in 1894 but I don't know to whom. Any additional help with these children of Lafayette and Eliza (Mynatt) Brittain would be appreciated. Do you have any questions that I may attempt to answer for you? I look forward to your help.
Thank you, Mark
