David M. "Bud" Bramlett
|Death||26 SEP 1910|
Aged: 58.7 years
found on 1870 Ga census. He was 11yr and worked as a farmer.
I found the following on Ancestry. This is the same story I was told by my mother, Marie Bramlett Carter, however, she never told me who it was, only that it was someone in the family.
(The family story is that Bud was out playing poker with some very bad men. He won big and took his winnings and went toward home. The bad guys shot him in the head on the way home and stole his winnings and his wagon. Then they put his body on the tracks to disguise the murder. They were never caught.)
My mother told me they knew he was shot in the head because they found his cap with a hole in it...
Buried in Wilson Cemetery, Bay Craighead Ark. Memorial # 30519950
