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.
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.
