Oliver Horace Brant
Learn about removing the ads from 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. 
Family links: 
  Harriet Ellen Brant Jones (1876 - 1902)
  Oliver Horace Brant (1898 - 1919)
  George Almer Jones (1902 - 1970)*
*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
