    Later Absolom and family are listed in Simpson CO, KY, ( Warren CO KY beca me Simpson CO, KY )
    however the county lines changed around them.

    From Volume 1 "A BOOK OF STRATTONS" page 297

    Absolom Stratton came from Virginia/N.J. and settled in Kentucky in the ea rly part of the nineteenth century.

    In 1781 he was a Revolutionary soldier, and the war records at Richmond sh ow that he was granted a pension.

    Among his descendants the belief is current that he was born in New Jerse y; that he came from Virginia to Kentucky in company with five brothers, f our of whom stopped in northern Kentucky, while one went onto Tennessee.

    Absolom settled in Simpson County (originally Warren Co).

    He married a Miss. Ennis, in Amherst Co. Virginia, December 16, 1805.

    After her death he married Celia (Graham) Logan, in Kentucky, in 1822/24.

    He was a farmer, and worked also at the carpenter's trade.

    He belonged to the Baptist church.

    If he was brought up a Quaker he must have lost his birthright in the soci ety when he became a soldier.

    He died in Simpson County, about 1831.

    Three years after his death his widow married Zachariah Morris, a Bapti st minister, and was again left a widow in 1848.

    Later she went to Texas and died at the home of her son, in the spri ng of 1867, about 72 years.

    After the father's death, in 1831, the family became scattered.

    Information concerning the sons of the first marriage, or their descendant s, is very much desired

    This is my own observation as near to the facts as I (Swanee@amaonline.co m) can be on the information that I have gathered so far.

    Absolom b. 1760 d. 1831

    m. 1805 to Winnie Ennis b. 1785 this would make him 25 years older than h er and 45 years old when they were married .

    His first child was born in 1808 and he would have been 48 years old.

    His last child was born in 1829 he would have been 69 years old.

    He died in 1831 so his youngest child by Clara Logan would have been 2 yea rs old.

    Military service: 1781, Was in the Revolutionary War
