Seeking more information on my grandfather H. EARLE BRAISTED (Feb 3 1917 - July 1985), especially where he grew up because my father does not know much about that. I know he was born in America, but I'm not sure if it was in Connecticut or New York, but he did die in Cos Cob CT, the place where my father grew up.
He married my grandmother Susannah Mitchell who I'm not really sure about her family. My father told me that her dad's name was John Mitchell, but that was actually his name after he changed it because of a feud with his dad. The Braisted children were named Elizabeth, Margaret, Robert and Richard. Both H. Earle and Susannah are buried in Greenwich.
He passed away before I was born so I never got to ask him about his family and he worked a lot throughout my dad's childhood so they never really connected enough to share his past history.
Any information on his birthplace, where he grew up or his extended family would be appreciated.
