This name also is spelled: Brattan, Bratton, Brattam, Brittain and probably other spellings and/or misspellings. At the end of this page is a list of others in some of the western states in 1880 who are not covered here.

General reference designations.
.. () = source unstated at this time.
.. (cem) = information from the indicated cemetery.
.. (cms) = my notes or observations.
.. (di) = death index for the indicated state.
.. (fg) FindAGrave at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi
.. (gp) = gene pool data available at Ancestry.com and perhaps other sites (clearly not always accurate).

.. (mi) = marriage index for the indicated county or for Oregon 1906-1920.
.. (ssdi) Social Security Death Index data.

There is some clearly conflicting and inaccurate data on this line. When the reason for the conflict seems clear, what is felt to be the incorrect data usually has been ignored. In other places, alternate possibilities are included for the reader to decide which, if any, to accept or to indicate that I am aware of the data.

.... Elizabeth CARTER and had a child 1853 (u) (neither in 1860 census) but this seems to be a misreading of records (cms).
..Children (jg) 10 (jcb).

....i. John BRATTAIN born 1827 in Morgan Co, IL (gp), died 1893 Baker OR (jcb), apparently the retired merchant with Agnes, age 18 born IA who keeps house (wife?), in Eugene in home of Frank (age 24) and Amelia (age 29 born IA, probably his sister) SMITH in 1870 (c1870) and the one who is divorced in Baker, Baker Co., OR in 1880 with Hulsey and Pearson families (c1880).

Ebbert was with the family 1860 and 1870, born ca 1857 OR (c1860,1870) but who apparently was not their son (c1900 lists no children born to Elizabeth and biography says wife died 1902 leaving no family). This must be the James E. Ebert with wife Hellen J. living next to James A. in 1880 who lists mother as born MO whereas Elizabeth was born IL. That suggests he was adopted, perhaps from a brother of James. A James E. Ebbert is in Laurel Hill Cemetery, Lane Co., OR (no dates available online) who apparently died before 1900 as Hellen J. Ebbert is listed as a widow then (c1900). She was born ca 1858 (c1880) or April 1860 OR, married 12 Nov 1879 Lane Co., OR (js) and has a son Chester, born June 1881 OR (c1900).

Helen was born 13 Jan 1908 ID, died 12 Oct 1997 Tulare Co., CA (di). Also perhaps Clara Rae DICKEY, born 16 Jan 1911 ID, died 8 Feb 1978 Riverside Co, CA (di) living Fountain Valley, Orange Co., CA (ssdi) and Mary E. CULPEPPER, born 27 Sept 1917, died 28 March 2002, last residence Garden Grove, Orange Co., CA, last benefit to Topock, Mohave Co., AZ (ssdi).

1852 Trail list includes this family; but they are also on the 1846 list. Since they are in the 1850 census, 1846 is probably correct (mm).

..Notes: Thomas and family are said to have crossed the plains from Iowa to Oregon in 1850 (hco). Thomas was elected Sheriff of Lane Co. in 1862 but resigned in 1864 (lcs). He was one of the early pioneers to Klamath Co., returned to the Willamette Valley, and in 1873, moved to Chewaucan Valley in Lake Co. (hco). He became the first Sheriff of Lake County from 1876 to 1878 (lcs). Although Permelia's death is not in Oregon di, only one death certificate was listed for Lake Co. in 1913 whereas more were listed in adjacent years. Thus, it seems likely some may have been overlooked in some way.
A Thomas or Thomas Jefferson Brattain had numerous land claims in Lane and Lake counties: Lane Co. 22 Mar 1866 Oregon City #1568, Lake Co. 5 April 1878, Linkton #96, 19 April 1894 Lakeview #1800, 26 Dec 1896 Lakeview #668, and 28 Oct 1904 Lakeview 3653 (blm records). Permelia J. Brattain filed Lake Co., Lakeview 8 April 1909 #244 (blm).
Hazen Brattain also had a number of land claims all Lakeview, 28 Oct 1904 3652, 17 Feb 1906 3652, 30 March 1908 214, 29 April 1918 628079, 2 Jan 1923 891958, and 19 April 1927 1000338.
See land claims for Eldon and Paul under their entries.
Paul, Grace, Thomas J. and Ruth Brattain are with Haren in the 1930 census.

.. Notes: The Small family crossed the plains to Oregon to Lane Co. in 1853 where George took a donation land claim (hco). The family moved to Glenn Co., CA in 1860 where the father died in 1861. In early 1873, James moved to Chewaucan Valley in Lake Co. followed by his mother and sister. In 1886, he moved to the Silver Lake country where he raised cattle and sheep.
In 1920, James and Celeste have a grandson listed on the census, Gene Bryant., born ca 1901-2. (age 18), CA, parents born Maine and CA. This suggests that James may have had a wife and child before marrying Celeste.
