Marriage Notes: [jeant_6.ged]

In Jul 1828 John inherited by his father's will "the tract of land on which he now resides, being the same which was surveyed & laid off by metes & bounds by William Sitlington being a part of 1713 acres which was granted to me by patent which issued upon an inclusive survey, made of the lands I purchased of John Rhea". This property was located in Bath Co., purchased of John Rhea, 1713 ac., £1400, on 14 Oct 1806. The census records for Bath Co. in 1820 and 1830 show an entry for John Bratton, so all children born up through 1830 would definitely have been born in Bath.

The transcript from the Crawfordsville Federal land entries for Montgomery Co., IN do not show any entries of land by John Bratton between 1830 and 1840, despite the fact that there is the grant of patent in 1835. There are two accounts of his arrival date -- one stating between 1829 and 1835, and one stating they arrived in Montgomery Co. in 1839. Known records seem to narrow the arrival date to between late 1830 and 1835, most probable being around 1832.

Land Grant: Abt. 1825, near Franklin, Missouri - Returned to Kentucky

He is the "William Bratton" of the Lewis & Clark expedition. The published accounts showing James' son, William, as participating in the expedition are in error.

NOTES for William E. Bratton:
http://www.pbs.org/lewisandclark/inside/idx_corp.html
Private William Bratton was enlisted as a member of the expedition by Captain William Clark, October 20, 1803, at Clarksville, Indiana Territory. He was born July 27, 1778, in Augusta County, Virginia, of Irish parentage. Bratton's family migrated to Kentucky about 1790, qualifying him as one of the "Nine young men from Kentucky." Bratton, considered by Clark to be one of "the best young woodsmen & Hunters in this part of the Countrey," was apprenticed as a blacksmith at an early age. He also became an excellent gunsmith. All of these qualities made him a very useful man in the Corps.

In early August 1804, Bratton was named to a search party assigned with locating Moses Reed and La Liberte, both of whom had deserted the Corps while en route to hold council with the Oto tribe. Bratton and the other members of the search party were successful at bringing Reed back to the Corps, along with nine mounted Oto Indians, including Little Thief and Big Horse, who were intent on making peace.

During the winter of 1804 at Fort Mandan, near modern Bismarck, North Dakota, Bratton's blacksmithing skills came to good use. In order to trade with the Mandans for corn and dried vegetables, the members of the Corps agreed to repair and sharpen metal objects that the Mandan and Hidatsa Indians had collected from British traders (including hoes, skinning knives, kettles, and firearms). Bratton and Alexander Willard, the two members of the Corps trained in blacksmithing and gunsmithing, were crucial to this effort. They set up a forge and bellows that had, until that time, been little used on the journey.

Bratton was involved in a dangerous animal encounter that occurred on May 11, 1805, in what is now northeastern Montana. While walking along the shore, seeking relief from painful boils, he came into close contact with a grizzly bear. Bratton shot the bear dead center. Though wounded, the powerful bear chased Bratton more than half a mile before he was able to hail other Corps members, who were rowing up river. The party was able to trace the bear's steps by following a trail of blood, whereupon they killed it, preserving its hide and salvaging its meat for rendering into grease for cooking.

Upon reaching the Pacific in November 1805, Bratton was one of 10 men to accompany Captain William Clark on a trek from their "Station Camp" at the Columbia River's Chinook Point to Cape Disappointment and northward nine miles along the coastline, in what is now Washington state.

Shortly after Christmas 1805, while the Corps was camped at Fort Clatsop near the mouth of the Columbia, Bratton, Joseph Field and Gibson were directed to establish a salt works at the nearest suitable coastal area. The salt was used to preserve elk and deer meat and for cooking and table use. The salt works was established at a protected beach site, 15 miles south of the fort. In late February, they completed their work, having produced 20 gallons of salt, 12 gallons of which were packed in two ironbound kegs for use during the return journey.

Bratton's health began to deteriorate during the Corps' stay at Fort Clatsop from December 1805 through March 1806. Aside from surviving outbreaks of influenza and the maddening presence of fleas, Bratton suffered extreme lower back pains, which stayed with him for the remainder of the journey home. By the time the Corps reached the Great Falls of the Columbia, near modern The Dalles, Oregon, in April, 1806, Bratton was semi-paralyzed. He was the only member to ride horseback while all the others walked, leading pack horses. When the Corps reached the Nez Perce tribal lands in May 1806, Bratton was treated in a sweat house. There, he received a sweat bath treatment similar to the kind used by most tribes in North America at that time. Inside, water was poured over heated rocks to produce steam, and Bratton was given copious amounts of strong mint tea to drink. Later, he was removed twice from the sweat house to be dunked in cold water. This treatment was most effective in easing Bratton's suffering. He walked with little pain afterwards.

3. William E.2 BRATTON (OF L&C FAME) COL. (George1) was born in Augusta Co, VA July 27, 1778. William died November 11, 1841 in Waynetown, Montgomery Co, IN, at 63 years of age. His body was interred in Waynetown, Montgomery Co, IN.

He married Mary "Polly" MAXWELL Bratton in Warren Co, KY, November 25, 1819. Polly was born November 27, 1796. Polly was the daughter of James MAXWELL. Polly died February 13, 1875 in Wayne Twp., Montgomery Co, IN, at 78 years of age. Colonel Bratton fought in the War of 1812, married, fathered ten children and died at Waynetown, Indiana in 1841. Heros of 1812 states on page 95 that William Bratton was the son of James and Rebecca Bratton, born Augusta County, VA. After further research, we are at a conclusion that he was indeed the son of George and nephew of James. He was bound out as an apprentice for his Uncle James at an early age, preparing him for his future adventure on the expedition. Taken from the Montgomery County Library, Indiana History,Crawfordsville,IN as well as The Bratton Historian, Vol. 1, #4, 1978: "William Bratton was in his early forties when he settled in western Montgomery Co, IN; but he already had his great adventure with the country beyond the Mississippi River. When the Lewis and Clark expedition to explore the Louisiana Territory was organized, William Bratton was living in Augusta Co, VA. Arrested by the opportunity to see the GREAT WEST, the young man enlisted as a private in the company recruited by Merriwether Lewis. Except for a period of illness, William Bratton took an active part in the three years adventure in the west. He acted as Scout and Hunter, Military policeman, and was in charge of the detail that distilled salt when the expedition ran short of that essential. "The expedition was absent for about three years, reaching St. Louis on its return trip, September, 1806. Here William Bratton was discharged with honors. In 1812, Bratton enlisted in the War with England. He served in the West, taking part in the Battle ofthe Thames. His travels in Indiana country, caused him to settle in Vigo Co, IN (Terre Haute), at the war's end. Here heoperated a General Store, but when the new Purchase (Treaty with the Indians, 1818, for lands north of Terre Haute) ws opened up, he took up land in Wayne Township, Montgomery Co, IN at Waynestown. Here he settled down, became a farmer, Justice of Peace, and a leader in religion and education. His need for adventure apparently satisfied by an occasional deer or bear hunt in the wilds of Ripley township." Many excerpts of interest are included in the two books I footnote: Stories of catching a fox in a steel trap; being chased by a brown bear; how he was cured by an old Indian treatment of his illness; etc. (Private Bratton had become seriously ill at the saltworks, troubled with a mystifying lumbar ailment. He had to ride
prone in the canoe, be carried over portages and carefully helped on horseback the entire way.) Stories were also told of the disciplines laid on these soldiers. "In after years, Bratton was in the habit of relating to his children that instead of switches the men used their ramrods on the culprit, and that the blows were well laid on, in the fear that anyone showing leniency would incur similar punishment." (Gass, Introduction, p. xxv)

William married Mary H. "Polly" MAXWELL, daughter of James MAXWELL and Grisal BERRY, on 25 Nov 1819 in Bolling Green, Warren County, Kentucky. Mary was born on 28 Nov 1796 in Washington Co., VA, died on 19 Nov 1875 in Wayne Twp., Montgomery Co., IN at age 78, and was buried in Waynetown Pioneer Cem., Montgomery Co., IN.

The Bratton family came early to Warren County from Virginia and settled in the area that later became Mt. Olivet, about six miles north of Bowling Green. Brothers Adam and George began buying land before 1814. Not long after his marriage, George built his home. It is a large double house and one of the very few left in the county that has not been weatherboarded. Their family of seven children were all raised in this house. Elizabeth Ann Bratton received the house as her part of her husband's estate. She lived there until her death in 1872. She was buried at Mt. Olivet, beside her husband. After the death of Elizabeth Bratton the property passed to the youngest daughter, Nancy D., who married Milton Omer White. Nancy lived her entire life in this house, passing away in 1903.

The brick with which Mt. Olivet Church was built in 1845 was burned in a kiln in George Bratton's field adjoining the church. Until 1951 the property was in the possession of Bonnie White Baird, great granddaughter of George Bratton, when it was sold to Mr. & Mrs. Ross Roberts, the parents of the present owners. p. 10b, Dist. 1: # 135/135 - George Bratton, 63, M, Farmer, Elizabeth Ann, 54, F, Margaret J., 23, F, Alexr.
