I never knew that Thomas was married before. Do you also show that Henry Platt Battin had two sisters, Hazel Elizabeth Abigail Battin (my grandmother) and Rachel, and other brothers? Grandmother Hazel's mother was a Garst.
You mentioned that you traced the line back to Thomas in 1550. Did you write a book about it? If so, what is the name, publisher, etc.-I'd like to get a copy.
You also indicated thinking that you told me that my Battins were Scottish. To my knowledge, we never communicated previously. In fact, it was my own father who said that our Battins were Scottish and our Hogans were Irish. (My father's father was Bruce Hogan, his mother Hazel Battin.) If we did communicate, please forgive my poor memory.
I'd love to hear from you (or any Battin/Hogan folk) if you have time.
