Bio and Links
Bio Photo Brainerd, Brainard and Braynard are 99% interchangeable, though our immigrant ancestor's (Daniel Brainerd 1641-1715) grave marker is spelled Brainerd. See memorial # 47491853. Several lines started changing to ARD in the mid-1800s. Braynard was someone's attempt to be different. My line through William has consistently spelled it ERD.

Thank you for your edit suggestions. I have incorporated all except the death place into the memorial. You should receive a separate email with the details about that. You could consider contacting the city of Middletown health department to see if they have death records that go back that far, to confirm.

RE: Brainard F DeWitt

I have not found any Brainard connection through his father's line.

Unforunately his mother Eunice Mary Lewis' family is unknown to me. There could have been a Brainard connection through her family.

I am related to this family as proven by DNA analysis IF Luke was a son of Benjamin Witt DeWitt, so we are searching for a living male descendant of Luke. See Find A Grave memorial 62529002 for info about Benjamin.

Any help with this challenge is appreciated.

Hi Elena,
You are welcome. I was back at Evergreen the other day and checked the plot again to see if I had missed a military marker but there is none. I see the notation "WWI Marker" on his memorial page. Perhaps you can send a message to the person who set the memorial up and ask about the military marker notation. I believe he has done a lot of memorials for veterans. If I can do anything else just let me know.

Hi, I don't remember where I got the info on the Squire title, but I usually get my info off or Some of my older files came from my mothers files she passed onto me. It might have come from findagrave if someone else listed him like that. I have not checked on it.

RE: Shipley photos
Didn't know if you read the caption under the picture but the marker has fallen over. Need to contact the cemetery to have it put upright.

RE: Frederick Brained
Elena, I understand, but you asked me where I got the information about place of burial. I'm going to delete my memorial. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Frederick Brained
Elena, I posted his obituary on my memorial for him. The last line says he was buried in Woodlawn.
