Mark Stratton - Find a Grave:








The Stratton / Braddock House in New Jersey
Built by Isaac Stratton, Mark Stratton's son, in 1760, a year after Mark was buried.
The home was sold to the family frends, the Braddock Family, in 1795, and still remains to this day!
The address is 70 S. Main St., Medford, New Jersey, 08055 USA - one block from Mark's burial site.

Most of the land of what is now Medford Village was owned by two families in l775– the Braddocks and the Branins. This brick residence was built of Flemish Bond brick that year for John Braddock, a tanner, by Isaac Stratton. It was probably built in two sections. The house has a varied pattern, as every other brick has a salt glazed end– of dark green color, very shiny and having the hardness of flint. In l795, Robert Braddock purchased the property.
