THE BRANHAMS
The picture above is a Branham Family Portrait and the little girl on the left is my Great Grandmother, Cathy Branham Stewart.  I fondly called her "Granny".

he Passage below was taken from my grandmother's (Christine Roberts Stewart) book "The Stewart Robert's Family Book".

Coat of Arms
The Shield is: Red and gold background with a right hand between three crosses.
The Crest is: The Crest is: Five ostrich plumes emerging from a ducal coronet.
The motto is: None I could find
The Shield is: A blue lion rampant on a silver background with two red hands at the top of the shield.

The Branham family traces their ancestral roots back to Irish origin.

The following is an overview of the Branham family in Floyd and Pike County, Kentucky.  The Branhams in all probability came from North Carolina. A will was made by John Branham in Pasqopank County, in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, in 1765.  The four children mentioned in this will were John, David, Jonathan, and Elizabeth.  There is no record to actually tie the families together, but taking into consideration the time and usual migration habits, the fact that some of the Branhams listed in the early Census records are said to be from North Carolina, and the common family names, it is likely that this is the same family. The earliest known record that has been found is of DAVID BRANHAM, who is the great-grandfather of CATHERINE BRANHAM STEWART's grandfather, ELISHA BRANHAM, buying 221 acres of land in 1786 in Montgomery County, Virginia. This same DAVID came to Floyd County, Kentucky, in 1790.  DAVID BRANHAM, SR. and WILLIAM BRANHAM and TURNER BRANHAM each bought and sold a great deal of land in the Mud-Creek section of Floyd County in the 1800s.  It appears that most of this land was in the Branham Creek section of Floyd County and Branham Creek was named for this family. DAVID, SR. was residing in the Mud Creek section according to 1810 and 1820 Censuses.  He must have died around the 1820s, as his property was settled around that time. In the 1850s TURNER was still living in the Mud Creek section and was 90 years old. DAVID BRANHAM, SR. had a son, also named DAVID (JR.).  He married BETSY LITTLE on June 6, 1803.  In the 1810 Census, he was living in Floyd County, Kentucky, with his wife and 4 children.  In 1820 he was living with his familyon the Caney Creek Fork of Shelby.  They continued to live there during their lifetime, and raised a large family.  David died in 1849, as his property was divided among his nine children and widow.  Betsy was still living at age 70
in the 1850 Census.  In another pamphlet is listed DAVID BRANHAM and his son, DAVID, JR., and
includes DAVID, JR's family.  He had 4 brothers.  All of them came to Floyd County, Kentucky near 1800.  Their names were John, Turner, William, and Edward. JOHN BRANHAM married MOLLY ELSWICK FINCH in Montgomery County, Virginia, in 1794 and was on Floyd County, Kentucky's tax roll in 1810.  He had a son, DAVID, who married ELIZABETH ADKINS in Pike County, Kentucky, in 1828.  He also had a son, TURNER, who married MARY GIBSON, in Pike County, Kentucky, in 1826.  There was also a son, ANDREW, who married SOPHIA ESTEPT in Pike County in 1826.  They also had a daughter, DELILAH, who married JAMES CANNON in Floyd County, Kentucky, in 1810 or 1812.  JAMES and DELILAH had 7 children.  In the 1830 Census it is shown that they were residing with her parents (DELILAH and her children) near the Pike County/Floyd County line.  All these children went by the name of BRANHAM.  One of delilah's daughters, LUISA, married MOSE SOWARDS in September 1837.  I think they went West shortly after they were married.  I think some of John's other children and grandchildren went West and went into the livestock business.  I understand they accumulated quite a bit of wealth.  Their son, DAVID, moved from here to Lawrence County,
Kentucky, in December 1833.  I understand he owned quite a bit of real estate in Lawrence County at the time of his death in 1855. JAMES W. HAMMOND of Ashland, Kentucky (warden of the State Reformatory at La Grange) is a great-grandson of DAVID.  DELILAH had a son named JOHN II, for his grandfather.  He married USLEY BRANHAM in Pike County in 1843.  They lived on Caney Creek in Pike County during their lifetime.  He lived to be about 93.  delilah's children were named GANNON but went by the name of BRANHAM. TURNER BRANHAM married POLLY MOTT in Montgomery County, Virginia, in 1795.  TURNER had a son, WILLIAM, who married CHARITY GIBSON in 1816.  They had 4 children, JOHN, ELISHA, JAMES and ESTHER.  ESTHER married ROBERT JOHNSON in 1842.  They raised a large family in the Long Fork section of Pike County.  JOHN married MAHALIA MOSLEY in Pike County in 1842.  They had 4 sons! RICHARD, JOSEPH, TAN and CLIFTON.  I think they resided in Wise and Dixon Counties.  TURNER also had a daughter named URASEDA, who married DAVID ALLEY in Floyd County in 1812.  TURNER resided with his daughter on Big Mud Creek at the time of his death in 1852.  EDWARD BRANHAM, who married in Russell County, Virginia, was on the tax roll in Floyd County in 1810.  It showed he had 3 girls under the age of 10 at that time.  One daughter, FRANCIS, was the daughter of KELSEY ALDRIDGE, of Russell County, Virginia. W.M. BRANHAM was another of david's sons on the tax roll of 1810.  DAVID and all of his 5 sons were on the tax roll in Flovd Countv in 1810.
