    BIOGRAPHY: John Branscom came to the Virginia Colony about 1750. His son John, was born about 1760. John Branscom inherited land in 1775 when Richard Branscom made his will. John Branscom sold his property in 1798 and moved to the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountain near Lamburg, Virginia, which is near the North Caroline line. John Branscom sold that property in 1807. The deeds are recorded at Stuart, Patrick County, Virginia. Rebecca was a witness to one deed. John Branscome moved to Wayne County, Kentucky. After establishing residence there John Branscom received land grant in 1815. After his children matured, some married there and others married in other sections of the country.

    BIOGRAPHY: Thomas Branscom remained in Wayne County, Kentucky. His will in 1841gave the names of the children. Roland Branscom married Nancy Barron in 1810 in Wayne County. David Branscom sold his land in 1826 and moved to Indiana, then to Johnson County, Illinois. Wesley Branscom sold his land in 1839 and moved to Arkansas. Henry Branscom had one son and one daughter mentioned in the 1830 census report. A later census report of Mason County, Missouri, indicated another son was born and lived there until after the Civil War, then went to Arkansas.
    The section in Arkansas where the Branscom-Branscombs settled became Stone County in 1875. During the migration most of the sons of John Branscom changed the spelling. David used Branscome. Those in Arkansas used Branscomb until about 1880-1890, then the spelling became Branscom.
