Just wanted to add my Bratt lineage to the fold here and see if I had a common link with anyone.
Stephen WILCOX married Sabra PALMER
1. Laura WILCOX.
Laura married Edward AKIN
6. Mercy Ann
*9. Helen AKIN married Erastus BRATT
4. Mercy Ann
*6. Iva Bratt married Fred WATSON
Clinton Herd WATSON
Clinton married Gladys Ruth SMITH WATSON
1. Bonnie Patricia
2. Marcia Pamela
3. Daryl Priscilla
4. Rick Kevin
5. Kim Fredrick
6. Kerry Pauline (I am the daughter of Kerry and Kenneth E. Lyon.)
*11. Frank BRATT married Anna Hettie MERRILL
1. Anthony E.
2. Harold C.
6. Mary H.
According to the small amount of information I have, child number 4 of Helen and Erastus, Mercy Ann married (first name unknown) BRATT. Possibly already a relation when they married?
Also child number 10 of Laura and Edward (Sabra) married James Walker BARNES, they had Belle BARNES, who married VAN DUSEN and their daughter Ethel VAN DUSEN married Anthony BRATT. They had Dorothy who married Glenn A. WILSON.
Many of my (later) Bratts can be found buried in Lakeview Cemetery, in Chautauqua County, Jamestwon, New York.
(Thanks to Ann O. for the information leading to my great great grandmother Ivy BRATT WATSON!)
