The following record contains information on the family of Andrew Stephen Braford and his wife Caty Parsels, who settled in Ashford township, Fond du Lac Co. WI from Cayuga Co. NY, before 1850. The handwriting of the record has been identified by Fern Thornton Helmer, (granddaughter of Gilson Braford), as that of Caty Parsels Braford. (1827 - 1921) The information was written in pencil, on loose pages and kept inside a bible, but the bible was later sold. The original pages are in the possession of Tracy Reinhardt
