Sheryle, I've got a little info that you might want. Do you need dates, children? I am also from the Bratchers and my grgrgrandparents were David Marion and Amanda Boone (LaRue) Bratcher. I was able to get a book called "Beyond the Crossroads" by Childress. It's got quite a bit in the book. My grandmother contributed to it's information many years ago. I don't have alot, but whatever I have, I'll share or try to find in the book, if possible. The book is mainly of the Childress's, but our Bratchers are included.
