There are so many Brautigan(m)s in the Chicago, Illinois area that I am sure we are related in some way.

My Great Great Grandparents were Frank Brautigam and Sophia Hoffman, My Great Grandparents were Christ Brautigam who changed his last name to Brautigan sometime before 1933 his wife is Anna Kirscht. My Grandfather was George Brautigan and my Grandmother Sophronia Lewis. My Great Great & Great Grandparents mostly lived in the Jefferson Township area of Chicago before my Great Grandparents moved to Wheeling. I know that My Great Great Grandfather came here in October of 1852. I have additional names of Aunts and Uncles is it can identify a tie between our families. If you have information please send me an e-mail at
