electric brake wiring?

For our 1967 Safari I am replacing TV to trailer wiring as well as brakes & axle, among other items. The new brake wire has been routed to the brakes but then I found a second wire to each brake, assume a common ground. I've anchored the common ground wire to the frame but is it necessary to also have a direct ground wire connection to each brake?
Advice would be appreciated!

Each magnet will need a hot wire and a ground.

I would probably wire each magnet ground to the same eyelet you connected to the frame to assure an excellent ground.

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......
