Birth: Aug. 12, 1798
Rutland County
Vermont, USA
Death: Jan. 27, 1890
Sauk County
Wisconsin, USA

Harriet Selinda LINCOLN married Stephen BRAYTON in December 1819. The 1820 census shows their parents' homes very close together in Bethany, Genesee, New York, so they were probably neighbors growing up.

Please see Harriet's husband's bio for her married life and travels to California. Harriet and Stephen BRAYTON had 11 children, including Edwin BRAYTON: F.A.G. #30157010. Sometime after her husband died in 1884, Harriet moved back to Reedsville, Sauk, Wisconsin to live with her daughter, Debbie Desire (Brayton) BENEDICT, wife of Samuel Serenus BENEDICT, a prominent clergyman with the West Wisconsin ME Church.

Note: Harriet claimed to be a cousin of President Abraham Lincoln, but this is very, very distant at best and depends on whether you think her distant ancestor Robert LINCOLN b. 1525 Hingham, Norfolk, England is truly an ancestor of the president as some researchers claim.

Request: Apparently an obituary exists for Harriet, but I have not been able to find it online and would appreciate any help in locating it.
