(Redirected from Brattain, T.J.)

Thomas "T.J." Jefferson Brattain, son of Paul Brattain and Elizabeth Martha (CARTER), was born January 2, 1829 in Morgan County, Illinois. He married on June 30 probably in Lane County to Permelia Jean or Jane Gillespie who was born 1838 in Missouri. In 1866, Harvey Small, Thomas Thomas and family are said to have crossed the plains from Iowa to Oregon in 1850 (hco). Thomas Jefferson Brattain was elected Sheriff of Lane County in 1862 and served until February, 1864, when he resigned. Edwin Powers and T.J. Brattain were selected trustees by a town meeting to the Pioneer Cemetery of Springfield. He was one of the early pioneers to Klamath Co., returned to the Willamette Valley, and in 1873, moved to Chewaucan Valley in Lake Co. (hco). He became the first Sheriff of Lake County from 1876 to 1878 (lcs). He died December 2, 1909 in Paisley, Lake County, Oregon and interred Paisley Cemetery. Permelia died ca June 11 1913 and also was interred Paisley Cemetery. She had been living with son Hazen in 1910. Although Permelia's death is not in Oregon di, only one death certificate was listed for Lake Co. in 1913 whereas more were listed in adjacent years. Thus, it seems likely some may have been overlooked in some way.
