Author: seekerJay Surnames: Brandt, Johnson Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.brandt/149.465.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: You two probably no longer in this conversation, but for those who join in from now on, I'll add more information. My family also had a "descended from Molly Brant and Sir William Johnson" story of its own, but after reading the books below, I just don't see how it's possible. >_< There's a lot of misinformation in this short thread. To correct these misconceptions, for a lot of fascinating reading, for a true sense of how important these three individuals were to the history of New York and the Revolutionary War, locate the following books: 1. For a wonderful biography for Thayendanegea (Joseph Brandt), see: * "Joseph Brant, 1743-1807, Man of Two Worlds" by Isabel Thompson Kelsay. Syracuse, New York: Syracuse University Press, 1984. 2. Sir William Johnson was the only nobleman ever created in North American in what became the USA. He was rewarded for his indefatigable efforts on the part of the Iroquois Confederacy and the British Crown. His contribution to the history of NYS was recognized almost immediately. The state sent agents to England in the very early 1800s to purchase as many of his papers as they could. Johnson admired the Iroquois greatly and well understood the value of appearances and a good show. It's my own theory, but I'm sure that he would have participated in a traditional "wedding" with Konwatsi'tsiaienni and Degonwadonti, (Molly Brandt). During her life with Sir William, she was the most powerful and wealthy woman in North America. She would NOT have been a mere housekeeper. Johnson was supposedly the inspiration for Hawkeye, James Fennimore Cooper's dashing frontier character. He was a bounder, though, known to have fathered at least 20 children with at least 4 women: * "White Savage: William Johnson and the Invention of America." by Fintan O'Toole. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2005. 3. Fewer facts and stories about Molly Brandt are known, so the scholarship is more circumscribed and the books shorter. Not even an image of her survives. I have read and recommend: * "Molly Brant an legacy of her own" by Lois M. Huey and Bonnie Pulis. Youngstown, N.Y. : Old Fort Niagara Association, 1997. * "Molly Brant: Textual Representations of Cultural Midwifery" by Judith Gross. American Studies 40:1 (Spring 1999): 23-40. https://journals.ku.edu/index.php/amerstud/article/viewFile/2688/2647 I haven't read these books, but hear they are good: * "The three faces of Molly Brant: a biography" by Thomas Earle. Kingston, Ontario: Quarry Press, 1996. * "Molly Brant Degonwadonti: Mohawk Heroine" by Alice Lavers Clark. Lincoln, NE: iUniversity Inc., 2004. This book is recent: * "Molly Brant: Mohawk Loyalist and Diplomat" by Peggy Dymond Leavey. Dundurn (publisher) 2015. 4. This book knits together the strands of the three lives into the bigger sweep of frontier New York and the Revolutionary War: * "The Divided Ground: Indians, Settlers, and the Northern Borderland of the American Revolution" by Alan Taylor. Vintage Books, 2007. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
