John Bratcher, b. 1740 and married Jane Canada and died in Campbell CO. TN, seems to be incorrect. If there is someone who has this info, please back it up with a source. 1724 or 1726 are dates consistently given for him with a death date of 1777. Several trees and sources list his wife, Jane, but there is no way the date works when several of his children are reported to be born in the 1790's. It seems like Bradshaw is used as the surname for him and a generation or 2 after. The most believeable source is in under William Bradshaw. Look at the site number 77 and click on Robert de Bradshaw. This is well documented and lists John with Jane but the tree loses him.

There is a 3/13 response to John Bratcher of Bedford, VA on the Bratcher Genealogy forum which is a link from the Bratcher Family history site. There is information that states that Jane Canada came from Grayson CO., KY. If there is someone who can confirm or dispute this, then please do. I know many of us are still stumped with John and Jane. There are some other statements presented by Pat Napier that are new to me.

I did a little research on the history of Kentucky. In 1740
it was mostly unpopulated. Remember that 1740 is 36 years before the American Revolution. In about 1780 three counties were formed in Kentucky, but none of them were named Grayson. My guess is that perhaps she was born in Grayson County Virginia.
