Amos Brainerd,Jr. b. 1795, the fourth of eleven children born to Amos Brainerd, Sr. and Rachel Brainard, daughter of Dudley and Mindwell (Ackley) Brainard of Haddam, Conn., and a cousin of Amos.
His father, Amos Brainard, Sr., one of the earliest settlers of Newburgh,Ohio made his western venture when nearly 50 years of age. He was a farmer and shoemaker, before coming to Newburgh,Ohio and lived on a farm near Newburg, OH toiling early and late to clear it of the timber and heavy undergrowth that covered it.
His father (Amos Brainerd, Sr.) met with a sudden and violent death, one day, in 1823. He was in a field at work with a yoke of oxen, when a furious storm of wind and rain broke upon him, and while hastening back to his dwelling, a falling tree crushed out his life. 

Amos, Jr. married in 1826 to Lydia Thompson, daughter of Adam and Lydia Thompson.(my 3rd great grandfather). He was a farmer.
