This one has me stumped:Abigail BRAYTON b. abt 1798 (according to census records.) Who were her parents and where & when was she born?
This is what I know about "my" Abigail BRAYTON:She m. Thomas Whitehead SMITH b. abt 1795 in NY (son of John SMITH and Ruth GILDESLEEVE.) Abigail and Thomas both died in the 1870s in Iowa.
Ruth G. SMITH (daughter of Abigail BRAYTON and Thomas W. SMITH) was b. in Clinton Co, NY, abt 1833 and m. William BRAYTON (son of Joseph BRAYTON and Clarissa HUBBARD) in Chateaugay, Franklin Co. NY in 1854.
My research has uncovered several Abigail BRAYTONs, but not "my" Abigail BRAYTON.Any helpful leads on this mystery will be gratefully appreciated.
