Re: John J. Brightwell of VA and NC 1822-1880

In Reply to: John J. Brightwell of VA and NC 1822-1880 by Richard Brighwell of 788

I also have a John J. (James) Brightwell in my family, son of Charles Brightwell, Jr. & Hopy Brightwell. I only have record of this John James Brightwell in Prince Edward Co., Virginia. I found it curious that the dates for the John J. Brightwell you listed are close to the one I have listed. I have no further info on him, so now I'm wondering if he left Prince Edward Co., VA & headed for NC. Unfortunately my paper files are packed away out of my reach right now, but here is what I have (in my genealogy database) on his family:
