Re: John Brayman (b. ~1783)
There is a book called "Daniel Stedman's Journal"1826-1859 His mother was Martha Braman who was the daughter of John and Meribah(Tennant)they were married 2-18-1764 in South Kingstown,RI.,from his journal.
I am a descendent of Lydia Braman who married John Harvey,John is mentioned in the journal many times,also is mention of the death of "widow Braman"at John Harvey's home.As there are not a whole lot of Bramans my guess is they are all related and perhaps descend from a 1700's immigrant.Below is from :
