  1. Melinda Harleaux

    Hello,
    My name is Melinda Harleaux. I am a descendant of Jesse K. Brumfield. My great grand mother was Dixie Brumfield, the daughter of Jesse. Her mother was Myra Harvey. Dixie was half White, African American and Native American. There is little information about the other children Jesse or other Brumfield’s had. I am a member of Ancestry and clearly genetically linked to the Brumfield family. Would love to learn more about our history. It would be great to share our rich and complicated history with each other. I am willing to share me email address and phone number.
