Biography of Seneca Bratt
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Bratt, Seneca, is of Dutch ancestry, son of John Bratt and grandson of Daniel Bratt, founder of the family in America. The latter came from Holland and settled in Albany during the latter part of the last century. Seneca has always followed the pursuit of farming as did his father before him; he has served his townsmen as commissioner of highways and acted as school trustee. Until recently he was a Democrat, but now is a Republican. He is a native of Hoosick, born in 1813, and carries the infirmities of age with remarkable vigor. He has in his possession a Dutch Bible 200 years old whiwhidhs brought by his grandfather to America. His wife, who was Christina Haynar, died in 1876, leaving nine children, seven of whom are living.
