Thanks very much for offering information on the Stratton family. I have very little information to even be able to ask for. I am related to the Strattons through my Gr Grandmother Barbara Ellen Stratton who married Madison Griffin. I THINK Barbara was the daughter of Henry but am not really sure. Anything you would share with me will be appreciated.
Thanks

Barbara Ellen (Stratton) Griffin was the daughter of Henry and Elizabeth Stratton. Henry and Elizabeth had about 13 children - not all lived to adulthood. Henry probably had a brother David and both may be the sons of Thomas Stratton who died in 1874 at age 84 yrs.
I am sending the research data and if you have questions after you review the data please let me know.
