James Stratton James Stratton has a question!
August 9, 2018 @ 1:44am
I am wondering if any of those who are listed on the Stratton y-dna chart can trace their their ancestry to John and Richard of East Hampton or the Edward Stratton line? James Stratton is my brother and his line is through Solomon Stratton and doesn't match anyone else, but many have connected him to the Edward Stratton line although there is no evidence that supports this. Thanks for any help. Sue Bennett

My line apparently goes back to John Stratton in East Hampton. Steve Dawson

My name is Steve Dawson, and I'm kind of a "Family Genealogist". I'm fairly certain that I've finally solved a 100-year-old family mystery. My great-great grandfather went by the name "Andrew Nelson", and that is the surname he passed to his children. Family lore is that he changed his name to avoid the consequences of something he was involved in when he was younger. All we knew is that he said he was born near Albany, New York, around 1829, and his parents were born in Connecticut and New York. Just in the past week, I've discovered DNA matches with me and my cousins, involving descendants of Eliphalet Stratton and his wife Rachel (Lawson) Stratton of Thompson, Sullivan County, New York. It appears that they had a son, Abram Nelson Stratton, born in 1826, who left New York and headed to the South; disappearing from the records after 1860. Then in 1872, Andrew Nelson first showed up in the records, when he married Mary Thurston in Louden County, Tennessee. So basically, it appears via DNA evidence, and the time-line of paper records, that Abram Nelson Stratton dropped the Stratton surname when he left New York, changed his first name, and adopted his middle name as his new surname, becoming Andrew Nelson. Andrew and Mary, along with their three sons, eventually made their way to Oklahoma. One son died in 1921, one moved his family to Southern California, and the other moved his family to Arizona. If anyone researching the New York Strattons, can help find information regarding Abram Nelson Stratton in New York, other than the normal census records, it would be greatly appreciated.

In my research concerning my husband's Strattan/Stratton line, I may have found a non parental event that my be useful for anyone in this line trying to find a Y-DNA match

Is Richard Guthrie still a member of this group. There was a post under his name from Aug 17 (this year?) regarding a possible Stratton NPE. I was unable to post a response or bring up info. So am reposting my query here in hopes someone can shed some light. --> We are wondering about NPEs as well, and would like to learn what you've found. What line is your husband's Stratton line? Ours (on paper, anyway) tracks pretty solidly to William of Windsor (unkn), Serajah (1707 CT), Martin (1731 CT), Calvin (1777 CT), Oliver (1818 Tennessee), Joseph (1851 Utah), , <private> (1889), <private> 1911. My brother is a straight male line descendant; no matches at all on his YDNA. I am trying to get him to have an autosomal as well, to see what shakes out in comparison to mine. But he's dealing with some health issues, and this kind of testing is not high on his list of priorities. Nagging never works with Strattons.

I'm here, actually this is his wife Linda. I posted the story in hopes of helping those who test Y DNA and find no matches. My research stems from 'The Book of Strattans' I'll find the correct name and post it. His line begins in NJ, then to KY, they move to Indiana and move to Kansas after the Civil War. I don't recognize any of your names, but I would be happy to help you. The male line in the NPE would change to DeVoe. Sorry this took so long, I'll check in more often.

Well, talk about not checking in, guess I can't talk. Thanks, Linda, for responding. It's clear that your Stratton is not part of my Stratton line. I am hoping that at some point, another male descendent from William Stratton of Windsor will show up so that we can compare yDNA, and perhaps clear up a mystery. BTW, Book of Strattons was one of first things I looked at when I started this, lo these many years past! While it wasn't useful in tracing my family's migrations, it helped me identify locate which source family to look at when I traced my family back to CT (thanks to those old naming traditions!). The problem, of course, is that there are no citations for the information, so I ended up digging through original sources, which led me to all kinds of interesting information. I am not a name/date/ event/place sort of genealogist. I always go to original sources whenever possible, and employ the FAN principle of research. I'd call it essential to avoid repeating other people's mistakes. At this point, I have solid evidence that William of Windsor is the founding Stratton for our family, and have traced the line forward again, locating siblings and even the missing Calvin. But no evidence for William's existence before his marriage. The yDNA is so unusual that I would like to verify that there hasn't been an NPE ("Not the Person Expected") somewhere along the line, or lines.

For anyone researching the lines of brothers John & Richard Stratton of East Hampton, LI. Many believe per Book of Stratton's that they were born in London (1619 & 1921) to William Stratton (1585-1647 Tenterden Kent), one time master of the company of Butchers London. I have multiple documents that debunk this theory. 1. William's FULL 1647 will (not the abstract) includes the following " to my 3 youngest sons Thomas, John & Nathaniel" which corresponds to Tenterden Kent baptism records for Thomas 1638, John 1641, and Nathaniel 1643, all baptized at St. Mildred, Tenterden and sons of "Mr. William". 2. I found the death records for John & Richard in EastCheap London, that include their baptism dates, and state son's of William. John died in 1627 and Richard in 1620. Thus, these are obviously not the Stratton's that settled in East Hampton LI.

Another Try "I have found in my parents' papers a folder containing a number of items that I think belonged once to Miss Florence Amy Stratton of Turweston, Bucks. She died there in 1966 and my parents bought her old house and found these when they moved in. I am wondering now what to do with them and I thought you might have some idea of who in her family might wish to have them. The folder contains a journal written by her mother, Mary, in 1855 of a trip to Europe, two books of recipes and a copy of "The Language of Flowers" published in 1852. There is also a postcard with the name of Miss Stratton, 9 Bloomfield Terrace, S.W.1." Tom Hart - tom.hart@taybarn.info

my name is Steve Stratton, the earliest Stratton is Geoffrey Stratton 1297–1369 • Staunton, Nottinghamshire, England, but bringing it closer to home my father is William Oliver Stratton Jr. born 1929 in Robbinsville, Graham county, North Carolina. Part of the family who I've never meet is in Oklahoma
