BRAYTON, Samuel Nelson, physician, born in Queensbury, Warren county, New York, 11 January, 1839. After graduation at the College of physicians and surgeons in New York City, in 1861, he entered the navy as an assistant surgeon, served on board the monitor "Montauk" during her numerous contests with the enemy, and was afterward for two years in the Pacific. He then resigned from the navy and engaged in business in New York City. He partly adopted the homoeopathic system of medicine in 1868, but continued to use the methods of practice of the old school to a considerable extent. He engaged in practice in Honeoye Falls, New York, removed to Buffalo in 1877, and became professor of the theory and practice of medicine in the Buffalo College of physicians and surgeons upon its establishment, and dean of the faculty in 1881. He is also editor of the "Eclectic Physicians' and Surgeons' Investigator," a monthly homeopathic journal, published in Buffalo.
