- ↑ Octa Corliss Bratton and Bobby L. Bratton were previously cited in support of a 25 Apr 1857 Bratton's Mill, Robertson, Kentucky birth. However, the original birth record makes it clear that he was born in Bracken County, not Robertson, so their recollections seem to have been wrong on this point.
