    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. Regards, Lorraine Allrelated - and another Brant (I've checked, your ggf is not in my database; my Brants were also in Illinois, Cumberland County) On Mon, Dec 15, 2008 at 8:40 PM, daisy <[email protected]> wrote: > I'm trying to find out information on William Newton Brant, my > greatgrandfather, b March 27, 1882 in IL.

    3. Below is what I was also able to find: On Tue, Dec 16, 2008 at 9:38 AM, Allrelated <[email protected]> wrote: > Hi, Daisy, > > If I find anything else, I'll let you know.

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).
