    The well known , Thomas W. Brandon are all relatives. The Brandon Chapel should be
    The Brandon Family’s graves are located on the Property of the Georgia Power Plant.
    I have tried to reach someone after hearing the closure of the Power Plant, but no reply.

    A lot of Family History in Bartow County.
    My Grandfather Abel Cunyus Skannal taught my Grandmother at the Stilesboro Academy,
    which still stands today. I have been there on tow occasions for they have the “May

    History of Bartow County by Susie Cunyus.
