I have a Joseph Braton (spelled this way) in the 1860 N.Y. census in Franklin county living with a relative, Christiana Cole Braton. And in 1865 in Dupage, Illinois a Joseph Braton. Could these be one in the same person ? Could the name in reality be BRAYTON ? Help needed. I know of Joseph BRAYTON & Clarissa HUBBARD of Franklin county, N.Y. And that they had a son named Joseph Brayton, and I believe the family relocated to Illinois.
