GGGrandfather Reuben Bradley was born Jan 1823 (or 1825 depending on which record read) in Dearborn Co, Ind. Reuben moved to Mercer Co., Missouri before 1850 where he married Mary Smith. His father was possibly James Bradley. 1840 Census for this county shows a James Bradley (age 50-60). Also shows Bonaparte Bradley on same census page (age 20-30) which is most likely related. Marriage records posted online for this county thru 1850 show: Bonaparte Bradley m. Rachel Guard 1833 Bonaparte Bradley m. Eliza Haburn 1850 Eliza Bradley m. Charles L. Pate 1837 Simeon Bradley m. Martha Ann Peters 1845 Turpin K. Bradley m. Dorothy Helen Gordon 1837 Virginia Bradley m. Alexander Boyce 1826.
Would like to hear from anyone researching these lines to see if there is a connection.
