    3. I find so many names that are the same as my William Brant's family but you must know have everyone was named after everyone else. I've found that to be true in all the families I'm doing research on. I know Gertrude Hampton's family and the Brant family worked with the Brodbeck and Schraeder Carnival out of Kinsley, Ks for several years. I need to make a trip to the Carnival museum in Kinsley and see if they have any information. I know the rides were made by the company that Chance Manufacturing Co. took over for. I contacted them, Joyland in Wichita, Ks, where they worked the Midway for several seasons, and tried to contact the museum in Kinsley but could get no information. Anyone who knew them has died. I've been working on my family tree for decades but only started on the Brant family because nobody had any information I was hoping to find out more on the internet. daisy ----- Original Message ----- From: <brant-request@rootsweb.com> To: <brant@rootsweb.com> Sent: Monday, December 22, 2008 2:00 AM Subject: BRANT Digest, Vol 2, Issue 5 > > > Today's Topics: > > 1.

    3. My William Newton Brant was b 1882/84 in IL. In the 1910 census it has both his parents b in IL, in the 1920 census he has both parents b in IL, and the 1930 census it has US for both. Nobody living in the family has any idea who his parents were. All the family information has grandma Brant. daisy ----- Original Message ----- From: <brant-request@rootsweb.com> To: <brant@rootsweb.com> Sent: Monday, December 22, 2008 2:00 AM Subject: BRANT Digest, Vol 2, Issue 5 > > > Today's Topics: > > 1.

    3. The only John Brant in my database was b. 2 Feb 1824, Ohio, per IGI. He was the son of Thomas Brant and Jane Dunkirk. Thomas was b. 14 Oct 1801, Washington County, Pennsylvania, d. 2 Aug 1874, Chrisman, Edgar County, Illinois. All of this information is from IGI, and not verified by me. Does this sound like one of your John Brants?

    3. Hi, Georgia, I have checked, and sorry, I have no Kimbles or a Phebe Brant. My earliest Brant that I have been able to locate is Ezra Brant (Abt 1775-1834). He was b. in PA and m. Mary Penick. They migrated to Ohio cir. 1804 (Mahoning, Tuscawaras, then Pike Counties). His son Edward (my 3xggf) m. Margaret Jackson. They were found in Coshocton Co., OH in 1840, Owen Co., IN in 1850, and Ash Grove, Shelby Co., IL in 1870. Other family names common to find in connection are Jackson, Lash, Leidy/Leyde, Swank, and Kail. The first names seem to be English, rather than German, and I have never found an Ezra Brant as a son in any of the Pennsylvania sources of the Brandt/Brant German lines. The most common first names in Ezra's children's lines from 1775 - cir 1860 are Thomas, Edward, Seth, Sarah, Ezra, Rachel, Cassie, Alfred, Margaret, George, Shedrick, William, and David, without the double names common to German baptisms. My father always said they were English Brants, but I had expected to learn that they had really been Palatine immigrants. At this point, I am assuming that they really did come from England, although I don't have any candidates for an emigrant ancestor. I surely would like to find Ezra's parents! I found a reference to an Ezra Brant in New York, but it was during the work I've been doing on my Neill/Gammill/Hix/Mallard lines for some months and never got back to check the New York Ezra reference out. Does any of this fit with your Phebe Brant? Regards, Lorraine Allrelated On Tue, Dec 16, 2008 at 10:17 AM, <Moncada100@aol.com> wrote: > Hi -- Do you have any Kimbles in your Brant line?

According to a later census, his parents are listed as both being born in Illinois, if that helps. You might also order his death certificate from whichever agency in Kansas issues them in Sedgwick County. They often have parents listed by name, including mother's maiden name, although not always, since the informant may not know. In the free, USGenWeb Kansas site, I found your ggf and his marriage in the index to marriage affidavits (http://skyways.lib.ks.us/genweb/mhgs/A-B.htm). Apparently, your ggm Gertrude went by the name May. It also gives the marriage affidavit number that you can order (see the website).

    3. Hi, Daisy, If I find anything else, I'll let you know. But I thought you'd like to know - if you don't have his WWI draft registration card already - that your William Newton Brant described himself in September 1918 as tall, medium build, with gray eyes and black hair. If you'd like the image of his card, I'll be happy to save it to my computer and email it to you directly. I always feel a greater connection to my ancestors when I see something they've filled out and signed themselves.

    3. Hi, Brant listees, I'm new to this list and am starting to try to fill in holes in researching my BRANT and the related lines listed below. If anyone on the list has information about the family, I'd appreciate it. I have tried to find more information about Ezra BRANT and Mary PENNICK in Pennsylvania, but have hit the brick wall. Also, I have not been able to get past Elizabeth's father George SWANK (abt. 1808 in Pennsylvania) or her grandparents Frederick LEYDA and Margaret RITCHEY, about whom I can find nothing. I am assuming various spellings from SCHWENK, SCHWANK, LEIDA, LEIDIG, LAYDA, LEYDE. RITCHEY probably also has many variant spellings. Any information appreciated. Also looking for any photographs of any of the them. Buford Williams BRANT (1903-1978) b. and d. Missouri; m. Helen Louise NEILL (1908-abt. 1949) bef. 1928 Alvin Jesse BRANT (1879-1976) b. Ohio or Illinois; d. Butler, Bates County, Missouri; m. Carrie D. WILLIAMS (1885-1976) 11 Feb 1973 Thomas Jefferson BRANT ( 1834-1906) b. Tuscarawas, Ohio; d. Cumberland County, Illinois; m. Elizabeth SWANK (1834-1907) 20 Jan 1856 Edward BRANT (1806-1871) b. Ohio; d. probably Illinois (their last child was born in Illinois in 1850s); m. Margaret JACKSON (1810-1882) 17 Mar 1831 Ezra BRANT (abt. 1775-1834) b. Pennsylvania; d. probably Ohio; m. Mary PENNICK b. abt 1779 Pennsylvania Cheers, Allrelated -- "As is the generation of leaves, so is that of humanity.

    2. The Tiger Telegraph Online
    3. Hello everybody! just thought that I would state my interest in the surname BRANT. My Great Grandfather John/Jack Cooke was born in 1850/1 possibly in southern Ireland. He married Ada BRANT in Leicester between 1885 and 1898 I'm not sure when because I have three possibilities none proven as yet. There is confusion in the family as to whether Ada Brant has Irish connections also, cannot prove it either way. As far as I know, Ada was born in 1874 in Leicester married either in the 1880's or 1890's and died ??? Not much to go on I know but here's hoping!

    3. Hi, Does anyone out there have a line from Joseph Brant (Thayendanega) to family name Berry? My great-great grandfather was George Washington Berry of Pittsfield MA, probably born in the mid-1800's. Family history has it that we are descendants of Thayendanega (or maybe Grandma was in her cups when she told that story). Happy Easter, Pat Welsh
