After a long and bitter lawsuit with Mr. Phelps over the sale of one of his father's salves, Jerry, whom according to his father's will was to be set free upon the death of his father, Nathaniel and Matilda decided to move their family from Kentucky to Texas.(According to the Dallas newspapper there was a Bratcher family fued still going on in the 1990's. I wonder if this fued had anything to do with this lawsuit.) The young family arrived in Texas around 1846-47. Nathaniel helped survey roads through Van Zandt County, Texas.
