Our recent articles on Dr. Furnish have triggered a letter concerning Dr. E. L. Branaman, another physician of note in Spencer County.
Earl Branaman writes from Cincinnati, mentioning that he grew up in Spencer County and pointing out that he is the son of Dr. Branaman.
“Dr. Branaman had three of five children who graduated in the Taylorsville school system, namely Elizabeth, Williams and the writer. Another daughter, Lucy Mae, taught in the elementary school there in the ’20s.”
