One thing that makes these old families difficult to sort through is that naming tradition of "hey, let's all name our babies the same names as our siblings have, so all the cousins have the same names!" lol

The line from progenitor Francis to my Luther E is as follows:

Francis 1612 + Mary (unknown)

Francis and Mary Fish's children:
Mary 1676
Thomas 1681
Francis 1683
David 1686
Mehitable 1693
Benjamin 1695

Benjamin 1695-1749 + Mary Butts' children:
David 1720
Benjamin 1722
Rebecca Jan 1724/5
Sarah Jan 1725/6
Francis 1730

Benjamin 1722- between 1758 and 1767 and Hannah Wheaton
Content 1744
Patience 1745/6
James Wheaton 1747

James Wheaton Brayton 1747 + Roby Esterbrooke
**Roby's mother's maiden name is Susannah LUTHER
Benjamin 1778
Hannah 1781
Susannah 1783
Roby 1786
Patience 1787
Betsey 1791
James 1793
William 1796
Luther 1798 **this Luther Brayton is the uncle of my Luther. This Luther married a Susan and had a child, Carrie

Benjamin 1778-1847 + Rebecca Read
Parthenia 1800
Maria 1801
Rebecca 1803
Benjamin 1806
William Hubbard 1811
Samuel L 1813
James Wheaton 1815
Luther E 1819
Mary Ann 1822

Luther E + Susan Brown
Caroline 1843-1859
Oscar 1848- 1910
Frederic ca. 1849

So, there were 2 Luther E Braytons, born a generation apart. One to James Wheaton Brayton + Hannah, the other to Benjamin 1778 +rebecca

Practically every generation had a Benjamin. You are correct about 3 being married to Mary B(utts), one to Hannah Wheaton and one to Rebecca Reed. I can not locate any Benjamin with a wife named Roby. The only one by that name is Roby Esterbrooke, who married James Wheaton Brayton. I don't have access to the Civil War Pension Index, so i can't see exactly what you're looking at, but I will check it out next time I am at the library.

Oh, and thank you so very much to Birdie1919, who gave the link to the Worldcat site; I was able to read both volumes of the Brayton Family History online with Adobe! That is the main source for all of the above information.
