Erastus Kitman Brainard
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 25, 1805
Death: Feb. 8, 1892

The stone shows the last name spelled Brainard. However we have a book that was written by the Brainerd's spelled Brainerd. So I will leave that last name spelled as Brainard according to the stone which may not be accurate.
This gentleman was born with the surname Kitman and adopted by his stepfather Benjamin Brainerd/Brainard. His brother Joseph kept the surname Kitman. Their mother was Mary E Slocum. She married Benjamin Brainerd/Brainard about 1809. She had 8 children with Benjamin.
