Would you have any history on Stratton Texas. My g aunt, Susan Hamm of Cuero, married John Stratton. he was a saddle maker as were Susan's father, Jacob F Hamm. Jacob was my g grandfather. They settled in Cuero some time around 1870. Jacob operated a boot and saddle shop. Ihave ran into a deads end on the Strattons. They moved to the San Antonio area. Ollie Stratton, a daughter, was a school teacher.
My wife and I visted the Alexander Cemetery on the 5th of July on the way to Cuero to do research at the court house.

Any info you may have on the Strattons would be most helpful.
