Matthew BRAYTON was captured by Indians around 1826 and held for several years. His adventures were published in the 1850s soon after he was returned to his family. He enlisted in the army during the Civil War. He died during the war and left a widow, Harriet, and a young daughter. The last record of Harriett BRAYTON is a pension application and Jackson City Directories that show her as a resident of the city until the 1880s. I need any information on Matthew and Harriett BRAYTON and their daughter, who might have been named Irene.
I am also working on the Thomas McCOURTIE and Horace WILCOX families from near Cement City, 1830s-1916; and my grandparents, Noah Wilson and Jennie May (WILCOX) WELCH, who lived in Henrietta Township, Jackson County, when my dad was born there in 1905. They also lived for a few years after 1905 near Stockbridge. Can anyone tell me exactly where they lived?

Armstrong of the same place, a lot in the village of Parma. Witnesses: C. Armstrong and Isaac McAllister. It has been said that David moved a log cabin to that area that his ancestor had built four miles north of there years before. His father would have been Elliot Armstrong of Shoreham, VT.
