Josiah Bragg is my 5th great grandfather
I have spent the evening finding him on the census.
Josiah Bragg born 29 Feb 1776 in Ct. died 19 Feb 1848 In Ct.
married Rhoda Bement 22 Mar 1797 East Windsor
They had around 11 children: Harvey, Sidney, Lurana, Calvin, William, Orin, Mary, Laura, Lydia, Frederick and a daughter born around 1825.
John Bragg that married Clarissa Eaton is a completely different person.
Census info for John & Clarissa:
The 1820 census, when Rhoda would still be alive, only has 2 kids when 10 were born. This John Bragg is NOT our Josiah Bragg
1830 census (only Braggs in Somers) has 1 male 5 to 10 1820 to 1825 Noah
1 male 40 to 50 1780 to 1790 John
1 female 10 to 15
1 female 40 to 50 1780 to 1790 Clarissa
So where were all the kids from Rhoda?
