Re: To Richard S. Please Help in Missouri

Yes, Richard Mabel married and she was still living with her parents in 1920. I have the census reports 1870-1920 for my Bratcher family. It could have been the census takers unwillingness to acknowledge the fact the Mabel was married and her husband could have been working in another city, county or state (mystery). There are multiple reasons the census taker decided to write what every they saw fit on the census report or why Jettie was not in the home at that time. These questions are waiting to be answered or not.

Maybe if the last Bratcher/Bradsher captive holders decendents, who know I'm looking for my Bratcher family and were willing to answer some of my questions, this search would not be so difficult or such a mystery. However, that has not stop me from looking for my Bratcher/Bradsher family.

"What is in the dark, shall come to the light." What I mean by this statement is, someone sent me an e-mail recently and told me what documents to look for in TN to find information on my captive Bradsher/Bratcher family memebers. The e-mail went something like this, "I saw you post...with no answers...what a is what you are looking for etc."

Thank you Richard for your help and I know this post seems to be venting.

Peace, Until the Next Time.
