The census record for Baldwin County AL in 1900 shows there is a son called Benjamin Littles and an Aunt Lucretia Boon living with Frank. Benjamin was Sarah's son from a previous marriage. The relationship to Lucretia Boon isn't clear - it is possible that she was Sarah's aunt and that Sarah's sister Lucretia Silcox was named after her. [from Henry Seymour book]

In the 1920 census for Baldwin County AL, he stated he was 77 years old. That would make his birth year 1843. [from Henry Seymour book]

"NATHANIEL BROUGHTON MIGRATED HERE FROM SOUTH CAROLINA, by Dorothy Broughton Cipperly
Nathaniel Broughton, my great-great-grandfather, was born in Charleston, SC, and served in the American Revolution under General Marion.
He married Miss Benbow of Charleston and moved to Monroe County in the early part of the nineteenth century. He purchased land from John O'Givynne [sic], Sr., in the community known as the Ridge. Their home was located on the Old Stage Road. They had six children, Edward T., James, Susan, Sarah, Nathaniel, and Charles Broughton.
In 1844, after their children had married, Nathaniel and Sarah sold their home and land to their daughter, Susan Broughton O'Gwynne and moved to Greene County, Miss. They lived here until 1855 when Nathaniel died.
To comply with his will, Sarah Broughton, along with her belongings and slaves, returned to Monroe County. She spent the rest of her life with her daughter, Susan Broughton. Sarah was buried in the Old Ridge Cemetery.
The youngest son of Nathaniel and Sarah, Charles Richard Broughton, was my great-grandfather. He was born in Greene County, Miss., in 1820. In 1839, he married Miss Mary Rebecca Snell and took up residence near Monroeville. By 1860 he owned more land than anyone else in Monroe County."

Notes of interest:
Based on the date of the Codicil to the Will (June 23, 1852), the probate of the Will in Greene County, MS (July Term - 1852), and the July 1852 date of several of the bills in the final account settlement, it would appear that Nathaniel Broughton died about the first of July in 1852.

The body of Nathaniel Broughton was brought back to Monroe County, AL in July of 1852 (see item #16 of the final settlement of accounts). Sarah Broughton is dead by March 28, 1859 and the money ($540.40) paid out of the Estate for her support was paid to Charles R. Broughton (see item #19 of the final settlement of accounts).

The negroe slaves remained in Mississippi from June 1852 through June 1855 (see items #14 & #15 of the final settlement of accounts). The negro woman, Martha, had two(2) more children, Dempsey and Martha, between June 1852 and June 1855.

Martha and her children are sold together (in compliance with the Will) along with Henry to Charles R. Broughton. In the Will transcript from Greene County, MS one of Martha's children is refered to as "Andersen", but in the Sale Bill from Monroe County, AL he is refered to as "Andrew".

The expenses as shown on the final settlement of accounts only add up to $2755.39 instead of the $3455.39 shown. This is a differeence of $700.00 (the price Charles R. Broughton paid for Henry). I have often wondered if there was an "unwritten" charge to the estate to re-imburse Charles R. Broughton the purchase money of Henry in order that Henry might be given his freedom upon attaining the age of 21 as set forth in the Will.
