I am not a Bruner.  I am only helping Reva Joy (Bruner) Frye with her Bruner genealogy.

Jacob McKendric Bruner (1840 - 1900) [Pvt CO 1 66 IND INF Civil War] married Elizabeth Granger Adams (May 30, 1852 (?) - Mar 27, 1936).  This Bruner family is from Illinois. (Reva's great grandparents).
Both buried in the New Hope Cemetery, Ivanhoe, Texas []

        John Preston Bruner (2/18/1883 - 12/18/1972) married Estell Freeman (4/8/1898 - 1/3/1966).  Both buried in the New Hope Cemetery, Ivanhoe, Texas.
        (John's family fought for the North while Estell's family fought for the South).  Estell is supposed to be 1/2 Indian but not sure which tribe. 

                John Raphael Bruner (Reva's father)


NOTES: Found a Jacob Breuner that was 30 years old on the 1870's census living in Ohio with wife Elizabeth age 28.
