My husband's  grandfather, Henry Bradley, an orphan,  was brought to St. Thomas Orphanage in Bardstown, KY in 1867, at the age of 6, along with an older brother, John Richard,  age 10.  We know that their mother was Catherine McCrann, born in Ireland, and their father was Richard Bradley.  We do not know where he was from.  Richard  married Nancy Millton in New Albany, IN in 1851, and subsequently married Catherine in 1853, also  in New Albany.  The children came to St. Thomas through St. John’s Parish (an Irish Parish)  in Louisville, KY.  The family story is that Richard worked on the Ohio River and died in an accident on the river. We don't know the exact year, but the youngest child, Henry, was born in 1861.  This family should have been on the 1860 census, but I have never been able to locate them.  I did  find an 1866 Louisville City Directory showing Catherine Bradley, widow, husband Richard. If you have any information that might help us, we would be most appreciative.  Thank you.

I’m at a dead end on my Bradley family tree.  My gg grandfather was Robert F Bradkey, born about 1841 in Missouri.  He served for three years in the 33rd Missouri Infantry during the Civil War, only to be shot to death by his stepson in 1869.  His father was James M Bradley born about 1814 in Kentucky, married Lydia Bradley in 1834 in Lincoln, Missouri, and died about 1870.  There the trail ends.  Any help with filling in the blanks will be greatly appreciate.

I am interested in the family of Cornelius Bradley, Revolutionary War soldier in Maryland, who later moved to what is now Warren County, Kentucky, and from there to Posey County, Indiana.

Here is the URL for the Vital Records of New Have 1649-1850 book with the mention of the Loring Bradley and Eliza James marriage in 1836:

Hello Amy, I found a mention of the marriage of Loring Bradley and Eliza James in an online ebook Vital records of New Haven, 1649-1850 (Volume pt. 1, page 49 of 51). While it does not give their parents, it does say they were married at Trinity Church on 7 Sep 1836 "by me Harry Croswell." I don't know if it is possible to access Trinity Church records, but it is something to consider. Best wishes in your Bradley searching! Barbara

Hello!  My Great Grandmother was Mabel Ena Bradley.  Her father was Charles Horace Bradley, and her grandfather was Loring Bradley, married to Eliza James.  Loring was born in New Haven, Connecticut in 1813.  This is where I am stuck and can not find any information going any further back.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi Bradley researchers.! My Grandmother's maiden name was Bradley. My Bradley family lived in QLD and NSW Australia, but I am also interested in finding more from England. My Gr Gr grandfather George Charles Bradley was a hairdresser in Roma in outback QLD. George married in 1877 in the same location and also died in Roma in 1892. George's father was John Bradley (Also a hairdresser)and his mother was Elizabeth (nee NASH)

  It is thought the family came to Australia when George was a 7 yr old boy. George states he was born in Birmingham England approx 1834. I am not sure if George had any siblings It is possible the family may have also lived in Victoria Aust as well as other states. I am hoping someone can find something more on this elusive family from England.

Cheers from Sunshine Coast QLD Australia

Hi Bradley searchers. My Bradley is my grgr grandmother from S. C b ~1803 by name of Kissariah/Keziah/Keshiah/Kissiah/Kisiah etc. She married Thomas Tilman unknown place but about 1819-20 and had first child by 1820. They were in Arkansas, living by the rivers for about 19 yrs then went to Red River Co/Lamar Co Texas. Thomas was killed by Indians about 1842 and she was widow with several children still home. She married John Emberson of Lamar Co in 1850 May 9. She had a pre-nuptual with him. They divorced however in 1854 or 56 and he remarried by 1856. It was a nasty divorce from rumors.
She took back the name Martin and lived with her children off and on until her death after 1880 in Texas, probably Collin or Fannin Co Texas. She is in census with Son in 1870 and with Emiline Morgan in 1880, I believe.
Does this woman sound like she's from one of the families you know? She may have been native and they family here says she may be of the King Casiah tribes. I'm not able to prove much until 1830s..
Feel free to share. I'm open to all information. Her Bradley family may have come to Tn and on to Arkansas when she did.
