(Witness) Census19 Apr 1910 Herbert McKinley Bragg appeared on the census of 19 Apr 1910 in the household of William Grant Bragg and Mary Elizabeth Webb at Mossy Precinct, Fayette Co, WV.2 
Marriage* He married Rosa (?). In the WWI draft registration for Herbert Bragg, his nearest relative was listed as "Mrs. Rosa Bragg, Dothan, WV". No marriage record has been found, and no other Rosa Bragg has been identified, so it is assumed she is his wife. The 1920 census shows Herbert's wife to be "Basie"; this is likely a spelling error of Rosie (many spelling errors from this enumerator).3
