Mr Brattin was found last Saturday night suspended from a beam in the Charles Ellston barn west of Exeter where he had hung himself.
Mr. Brattin had just recently returned from Nevada where he had spent several months in the sanatorium. He disappeared from the Bowman home where he was staying Thursday afternoon & informed them that he was going to the home of his brother, Lorenza Brattin. When he failed to show up a search was begun which ended Saturday night when Jess McClure found the body in the Ellston barn.
According to relatives he had considered suicide a number of times in the past and told them of a few attempts he had made.
His wife Daisie and children Daniel Alexander & Ruby R survive him.
Rev. Vanzandt conducted the services with burial in the Concord cemetery.
