BRANSON / COOK GENEALOGY

This website is dedicated to the memory of Ira Lee Branson

Throughout my research on the Branson family, it became apparent that these people were pioneers in the true sense of the word. Bransons participated in just about every major event in our country's history, including the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. Many of them seemed bound and determined to move westward and played their various parts in the "taming of the wilderness". My grandfather, Ira, owned a team of horses that he used when working with various crews to build the roads of many towns and countrysides in Missouri, Colorado, Oregon and California. Although he ended up near the coast of California, I suppose he would have kept moving westward had not the Pacific Ocean been there. This man, who died in 1968, was the last generation of Bransons to participate in this nation-building enterprise. That is why I am dedicating this website to his memory.
