I'm trying to locate parents/siblings of Bryant (possible first name William) McLeod. All I know is that he was born in NC in 1812. Any help will be much appreciated

Hi, I know your posting about this was over 10 years ago but hopefully you have either found what you're looking for or can help me find what I need..

I have a brick wall in my McLeod line in Pike County, AL.
Burl Washington McLeod is my GG-Grandfather, born between 1853-1859 in AL.

I am looking for his parents.. I have a hunch that his dad was Rufus McLeod b. abt 1836 in AL and d. sometime after 1910 in Jefferson Co AL.

My next hunch is trying to connect Rufus to Bryant b. abt 1812 in NC.

any information you may have would surely help at this point.

Burrell McLeod, is Benjamin Washington McLeod. He was born in May of 1860 to Rufus and Lidia McLeod.

Rufus' father is a tough knot. He appeared in the 1850 census in the household of Bryant and Mary McLeod, but it is in question if this McLeod was even a McLeod at all and maybe he was named Rufus Oxford. I have a theory. Since Bryant and Mary Polly were married in 1840, it is impossible that she is his mother. Bryant was 28 when they married, much past the conventional age of marriage at that time, so I believe that he was married before Mary Polly Davis, and Rufus was a child of this union. Since I have not been able as of yet to find any proof of this, it is merely conjecture at this point...But I am always looking and hope to find it some day. Rufus died in Jefferson County after 1910 (I believe in 1915) so he must have a death certificate since vitals were compulsory in Alabama after 1908. I have ordered many, and sometimes they tell the parents, sometimes they don't know who the parents are. My contact from Alabama is no longer sending death certificate copies, so I'll have to wait until I can send away for it. Probably a 70 percent chance his father, mother, or both are listed on his certificate. He was last married to Susan Morrison august 11 1895, in shelby county, but he died in Jefferson county. His children I have been able to put together as of this date, are as follows:

Cicero R. McLeod
Benjamin (Burrell) Washington McLeod
Henry R McLeod
Mary Ann McLeod
Elenora Eliza McLeod
Ida Rebecca McLeod
Marion McLeod

Hope this helps, if you have found anything, let me know.

Bryant has a sister Anna McLeod. Their mother is Catherine McLeod b 1795 NC, died after 1860-before 1870 AL. She is listed on the Pike Co., AL census for 1850 and 1860 living with her daughter Anna and her children. Her son, Bryant and his family live next door. Their is an article on the McLeod family in The Heritage of Pike County, AL book. They moved from the area of Richmond Co, NC to Pike Co., AL sometime between 1820 and 1830. Both Catherine and Anna are widowed. I do not know the name of Anna's husband. She had six children, her oldest is Rufus McLeod, my g.g. grandfather. It is believed by another descendant that Catherine's maiden name was Gillis and her husband is Norman McLeod. There is a Norman and Catherine McLeod on the 1815 List of Taxable Property, Cumberland County, NC. This may be Bryant and Anna's parents.
