Part 709p – Smith Groh Genealogy – The Mystery of Brayton C. Placeway – Updated Ancestral Mapping

10 June 2012

Good Day,

Visual tools are complimentary in genealogy to the detail and information found. I have used Ancestral Atlas, an ancestry mapping software, to provide a graphic mapping and overview of key pinpoints and locations that ggg-grandfather Brayton C. Placeway.

This current mapping begins with the pinpoints of ggg-grandfather Brayton’s birth in 1888 and follows through to the enumeration and recording of his residence with his family per the 1920 United States Census. I have added the connecting red dotted lines to provide the connection between key locations.

As I follow the life and times and mysteries of ggg-grandfather Brayton C. Placeway, I will be adding key pinpoints to track his various locations and occupations.

To date, and between 1888 and 1920 these are the various recorded and reported jobs attributed to ggg-grandfather Brayton.

1888 – 17 April – Birth of twin brothers Brayton C. and Clayton C. Placeway, Putnam, Livingston, Michigan, USA

1900 – 11 June – Student, Putnam, Livingston, Michigan, USA

1906 – 1915 – Employed with Barnum & Bailey Circus, Europe

1910 – 15 April – Apprentice Seaman, U.S. Navy, Portsmouth, Virginia, USA

1906 – 1915 – English/German Interpreter, Gas Company, Gablonz, Austria (albeit Jablonec nad Nisou, Bohemia)

1915 – 1 February – Theatrical Artist, Berlin, Germany

1920 – 9 January – Stuffing Clerk, Express Company, Wauwatosa City, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Definitely to be continued. Stay tuned.
