Is this the family that you are looking for at Orchard, Wayne, Illinois in 1910?

dau Alpha I Bratton F y 7m Illinois

By 1920 the family is in Carmi Township Carmi Third, White, Illinois. I can't look at the actual census, only the transcription, and it looks like his name has been mis-transcribed as William, but the wife and child are the same:
Household Gender Age Birthplace
self William Bratton M 33y Illinois
wife Kattie Bratton F 28y Illinois
dau Alpha Bratton F 10y Illinois
dau Veta Bratton F 8y Illinois
dau Dorcas Bratton F 5y Illinois
son Kelfus Bratton M 11m Illinois

son Johnny Bratton M 6 Illinois

and the 1940 census of Carmi, Carmi Township, White, Illinois:
