I have been looking into a BRITTAIN/BRITTON line in early 1800's Indiana.
George Washington BRITTAIN Jr. b. 1832 IN d. 1895 IN m. Minerva Maners/Manes in 1850 in Owen County, IN
George Jr. appears to be the only child ( or only surviving?)of George Washington BRITTAIN Sr. b. ~1808 VA d. 1876 IN and his 1st wife Rachel GABBERT LOCKHART m1831 IN
I am attempting to determine who might be the father/parents ofGeorge W. Sr.
Some unconfirmed clues ...It is likely that Sarah Brittain Colglazure / Colglazier (1st wife of Abraham) was a relative/ sister of George W. Sr.? There are a few other Brittains/Brittons who indicate that they were born in VA living in the Washington County, IN area during the early 1800's when Indiana was the "frontier"A Samuel Brittain, Joseph Brittain, Thomas Brittain b. 1800 m. Catherine Hole, Jane Brittain who married a Aaron Hole --- is anyone researching these lines?
Based on a DNA test is is possible that GW Brittain was of Scotch/ Scotch-Irish origin.It also seems lessand less likely that the family belongs to a number of well researched Brittain lines widely discussed on the Internet!
In any case, if you can shed any light on these early indiana Brittains, I'd enjoyhearing from you.
