Christian Edward Brendel married Caroline Rebecca Burt/Burk .
Their marriage bond of Forsyth County dated 3 July 1850. Rebecca Brendel died Feb. 1860
according to mortality census of l860 Forsyth. The children were apprenticed/bound out
in l861. I do not know to whom or if girls names changed.
By then Edward had married Julia Christina Hege 14 Feb l86l is date of the Forsyth County
marriage bond. Edward Brendel/Brandel enlisted in CSA in Green County, VA in 1863.
He served in Co. B, 9 Batt'n NC Sharp Shooters until they surrendered at Appamatox, Va
(Compiled Confederate Service Records).
The years between l860 and l880 are blank concerning these children. Edward and
Rebecca Brindle are listed on William T. Brindle's Davie County, NC marriage
of l Feb l880, Rebecca dead and Ed Brindle living in Davidson. I do not know when
or where Edward died or if there were other children by marriage 2 to Julia Hege
or 3 to Cornelia Hege in l878.
The children of Edward and Rebecca Brendel:
Adelia A. b c1851
William T b 14 October 1853
Henry b c1856 Sarah E b c1858
William T (Thomas?) Brindle married Louisa Mandora (Dora) Orrell l Feb 1880 in Davie County.
William said he was 26 years old which jives with the l860 Forsyth census, his
tombstone has him much older, believe 14 Oct l853 to be correct. William was a
blacksmith and lived near the railroad tracks in Advance, NC (my mother Amanda Brindle
Humphrey remembered visiting there and watching him work). In 1910 he owned his blacksmith
shop near Advance and was the father of l3 children. Nine of them survived to adulthood.
