Oliver Horace Brant
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 10, 1898
Westmoreland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 2, 1919

His Grandfather, George Marker Brant lists Oliver's father as Ed Bitner. I assumed that this would have been Edwin Ambrose Bitner, who would have been a 2nd cousin to Oliver's mother, however, DNA testing between Edwin Ambrose Bitner's descendant, and Oliver's descendant did NOT match! Oliver was father to a child who was adopted by Oliver's wife's 2nd husband.

*Calculated relationship
 
Note: Informant on his death certiicate was his elderly Grandfather, who, I suspect gave an incorrect date of birth, since Oliver lists his own dob as 30 May 1897 on his WWI Draft Card
