Biography of Solomon Bragg
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Bragg, Solomon, was one of the pioneers of Barre, coming to the town in the fall of 1815, bringing a cow and an ox team. Solomon and his son Nathan each took a tract from the land company. The children of Solomon Bragg were as follows: Levi, Nathan, Joel, Lydia, Lucy, Lucretia, and Dolly and Polly (twins). About 1819 or 1820 Nathan went to Scottsville and there married Lavica Vannocker, by whom he bad two children: Sylvester, of Barre; and Luana, wife of S. K. Wyman. Nathan Bragg died in Barre in November, 1881, and his wife June 29, 1854. After the death of his first wife Nathan married the widow Groff. Sylvester Bragg, who for nearly half a century has been one of the leading and most influential men of Barre, was born November 9, 1824, and has always lived within 100 rods of his present residence. He has always been a farmer, and his industry and perseverance have been rewarded by success. Further, he has provided generously for his children as they have matured and started in business. Mr. Bragg is one of the staunchest Republicans in Barre, and has served as assessor ten years, supervisor three years, and is now highway commissioner. Febmary 4, 1846, Sylvester Bragg married Eliza Ann Whiting, of Shelby, and to them seven children have been born, viz.: Nathan, a farmer of Barre; Henry, who died at the age of nineteen; Oscar, who died at sixteen; Lillie, wife of George N. Brown, of Barre; Eugene and Ulysses Grant, both of Barre; and Lovinna, wife of Elmer Bliss.
