Amos Braman and Siblings

Karen Quackenbush writes:

Amos BRAMAN is my paternal great grandfather. His obituary states that he was born 11 October 1842 in Washington Co. NY. "Amos Braman, a prosperous stock farmer and dairyman of Section 17, Levis Township, was born in the state of New York, Oct. 11, 1840, son of Seth and Dorcas (GREEN) BRAMAN. The father, who was a farmer by occupation, was reared and married in that state. He and his wife reared eight children: Hannah, Assel, Mary, Ann, Jim, Olive, Sabrey, and Amos. Amos Braman remained at home until the death of his mother which occurred when he was 2 years and 6 months old. He then went to live with his married sister, and they moved to Kalamazoo, Mich., when he was about 5 years old." I assume his mother Dorcas would have died about April, 1843, according to Amos' birth date. He married Nancy FISH 4 July 1863 in Kalamazoo. They moved with Nancy's family to Crawford Co., WI. I cannot find anything on Amos and very little on the BRAMAN name--could the spelling have changed? Would appreciate any info on the BRAMAN family of Washington Co. NY.
