I don't know if this will help but my fourth great grandmother's name was Rachel Bratton - she was born in Tennessee according to my knowledge about 1812. I believe her father was Paul- born in N.C..
Rachel married Silas Rose and lived , died and was burried near Tomahawk,Ar.
I have a little more info and am glad to share what I have, I am using my wife's e-mail address which is MedievalLady@netzero.net
Good luck and God bless H.T.
