I got most of my Bratton information from the book: Family History of Our Brattons, Masseys and Martins. And some info from www.familytreemaker.com
Here's a rundown on what I have:
Robert Bratton m. Mary (unknown)
Robert appears to have been fond of spirits
Paul Bratton, son of Robert, b. Aug. 13, 1782, Guilford, NC
d. Feb. 1, 1858. Paul was condemned for "marriage out of unity" and "absconding and ot paying debts" in about 1806.
Paul was married at least twice. Once to Martha in TN, possibly to a Clark, and possibly to Mary Milliken.
Paul's children are as follows:
Thomas b. 1803 NC
Rachel b. 1806
Hannah b. 1808
William Milliken b. 1812
Benjamin, Sr. b. 1815 TN
Sarah b. 1823
Martha Ann b. 1825 (this is my branch)
John b. 1828
Nancy b. 1829
Paul, jr b. 1831
I bet our Benjamins do match up, but I'm not sure about Mary Milliken. I will continue to do research, so you should e-mail me and we'll compare notes.
