In USC1850 Center twp,Summit co Indiana is the BRATT family consisting of:
Charity BRATT 54-f-bNY
John " " 26-m-bNY
Amanda " " 18-f-bOH
Henry " " 13-m-bIN
Francis BRATT 11-m-bIN
I have no idea of who Charity's husband was, my concern is Amanda BRATT or BROTT b:1832 in Ohio.
Andrew Weatherwax (1817-1867) married 1st a Mary Ferguson who died 12 Dec 1858 in Michigan. Andrew then married a
Amanda BROTT c1859 they had three children prior to Andrew's death
son: Clement Weatherwax
son: Frank Weatherwax
dau: Kate Weatherwax
All children born in Newburg,Cass co. MI.
When son Clement married for the 2nd time his marriage record clearly identifies his mother as Amanda BROTT.
USC for the year 1860 Newburg, wife Amanda clearly indicates she was born in Ohio 1832 which matches the Indiana census record above. USC1870 again for Newburg the widowed Amanda Weatherwax indicates proper age,but now indicates being born in Indiana. This leads me to believe that the Indiana census of 1850 identifies the proper Amanda Bratt or Brott who married Andrew Weatherwax in Michigan.
Amanda last appears in USC 1880 in Quincy,Branch co MI where she widowed working as a housekeeper. No death burial record yet found.
I would like to establish her father if possible. Both her mother and older brother John indicate they were born in NY, possibly this line came from the Schenectady NY area where many BRADT,BRATT,BROTT lines eminated.
