Notes for OLIVER PERRY ELLIS BRANNON:

SPECIAL TO THE BIRMINGHAM NEWS: Gadsden, Alabama December 13, 1907

Ellis Brannon, one of the best know citizens of Etowah County, walked off or fell of the little steamer "Dixie" near Fowlers Ferry, just below Gadsden, at four o'clock Thursday morning and was drowned. The boat brought the body back to Gadsden later in the day.

 

Mr. Brannon lived with the family on Palmeto Creek and was in the logging business. He had worked for the Kyle Lumber Company for twenty years and was an expert draftsman. Wednesday he came to town on the Dixie which towed up a raft for him and returned with the boat when it left here at 10 o'clock for another raft.

 

Mr. Brannon went to the engine room and sat down to talk to the engineer, John T. Warlick. They passed several hours together and at 4 o'clock Mr. Warlick started to some other section of the boat. Brannon arose and said that he believed that he would look after the raft. Mr. Warlick told him to remain where he was that the raft was alright. When Mr. Warlick was about to enter the engine room on his return he heard a Negro that was stationed on the upper deck yell. The boat was moved only about 200 feet and the men manned the boats and found Mr. Brannon floating on top of the water in the wake of the steamer. He had never sunk and this is considered a very strange and unusual feature of the case. It is generally believed that he died of heart disease from which he suffered before he fell into the water. There were no bruises on his body. He was 49 years of age.

 

SPECIAL TO THE BIRMINGHAM NEWS Dec. 14, 1907

CAN'T CLEAR MYSTERY OF BRANNON'S DEATH

GADSDEN, ALABAMA

The coroner's jury called to investigate the death of Ellis Brannon, supposed to have been drowned from the steamer Dixie Thursday morning brought in the following verdict : " We agree that the deceased came to his death from heart failure or some other cause , and that from the evidence before us we do not believe that he came to his death by strangulation or drowning." The belief that Mr. Brannon had met with foul play was so prevalent on Thursday morning that Judge Penn asked Coroner Woodliff to hold the inquest. It is not believed that drowning was the cause of death, but the exact cause cannot be ascertained. The witnesses told the same tale and the only evidence against the drowning theory was the statement of Dr. Appleton. He said that Mr. Brannon's stomach was absolutely free of water and that marks of violence before his death were found on his face. These were made by some sharp instrument or finger nails. There were bruises about the head that could have been made by a blunt instrument. The fact that Mr. Brannon's body floated on top of the water in the wake of the boat is the queerest thing about the case and no one has been found to explain it.

Children of ELLEN CONDRAY and OLIVER BRANNON are:

24. i. CLYDE A.4 BRANNON, b. June 18, 1885, Etowah County, Alabama; d. June 15, 1961, Etowah County, Alabama (Old Harmony Baptist Cemetery).

Notes for NORA BERNICE CONDRAY:

Nora was the middle child of eleven. After she finished nursing school she returned home to help with the rearing of her brothers and sisters. All of the older children were married when her mother died so she kept the family together at the home place in Hokes Bluff until she married. When she married she took Guy to live with her, Roberta went to live with Lura, and Durwood lived with Mollie. Gene had already married at this point in time. Winnie was widowed and she and Louise also lived at the home and Winnie worked as a telephone operator. Nora was a very frugal person. Family jokes include the family sitting down to biscuits and gravy because she had sold the eggs. She owned and operated two grocery stores and service stations. She was a strict disciplinarian like her father. The only emotion that she would ever display was anger. I never saw my mother cry. She loved her family and always helped care for the sick. She was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and colon cancer however she died from complications from a broken hip.

Mrs. Clay was a member of the Eastern Star and Rebeka Lodge in Hokes Bluff and the Central United Methodist Church in Gadsden.

 

I believe that she was a lot like her father. He almost always let her go with him to take the cotton to gin because the boys would play on the cotton on the wagon and he didn't like that. She said that she would sit up front on the wagon with her father and talk to him and she always got a candy bar on the way home.

Winnie was a very kind person. She reared her only child alone except for help from family members. She worked as a telephone operator in Hokes Bluff for many years. She was the house mother at the School of Nursing at the Baptist Hospital in Gadsden. After the school of nursing was dissolved she ran the snack bar at the hospital. I and almost all of my cousins have fond memories of her. Once when I was a child my mother and I were in town and I saw a shirt that I wanted very badly. My mother did not buy it. While we were in town we ran into Aunt Winnie and she knew that I wanted the shirt. Before we left town we ran into her again and she had bought me the shirt. Another cousin remembers her fondly as she gave her her first egg salad sandwich. When she was about five Pat had rumatic fever and was hospitalized. Aunt Winnie brought her an egg salad sandwich and she loved it. Every day while Pat was in the hospital Aunt Winnie came to see her and brought her an egg salad sandwich. She died of cancer.

Notes for MOLLIE DEE CONDRAY:

Aunt Mollie was the one that always seemed to make things funny. Even though she worked very hard she could always make things fun. She was a very good cook and I always looked forward to our Sunday visits at Aunt Mollie's house because she was such a good cook. She was active in church and was a member of the Rebecca Lodge. She died of cancer.

Guy was the smallest of the Condray men. I don't believe that he was ever taller than five feet four inches. He had an accident that resulted in a broken back after which he was shorter than me and I was never taller than five feet two inches. He lived with my parents after I was born and I remember him coming home from work and taking me to ride. I would stand behind his right shoulder with my arm around his neck and play with his ear lobe. He was also the one from which I learned to sware. Not bad, just the usual things we all say. Guy was a very hard worker. Sometimes I thought he worked like he did just to show people he could do anything a big man could do. He died from complications from heart surgery but he also had cancer. He was very special to my mother hence he was special to me.
