Chivous, in reply to your posting #8788, my copy of the James (yeoman) Alexander Tree shows the following children for Francis Bradley and Abigail Alexander, daughter of James and his second wife Abigail MNU (no dates or spouses listed, and the birth order of the children and grandchildren may be quite different. Some of the grandchildren are shown as bare branches, perhaps indicating some who died in infancy):
1. James Bradley, with three children: Abigail, Margaret, and Abram (plus one bare branch)
2. Rebecca Bradley, no children
3. John Bradley, with six children, Rebecca, Elizabeth, William, M.M., James and Abigail (plus one bare branch)
4. Elizabeth Bradley (married name?), two children, Martha and Teressa (plus two bare branches)
5. Esther Bradley (married name?), ten children, Newton, Cornelia, Rebecca, Leander, John, Jane, Elizabeth, Cenith, Muriana, Nile (plus one bare branch)
The story of Frank Bradley's exploits and his untimely demise is found on pp. 428ff of J. B. Alexander's *The History of Mecklenburg County (NC), 1740-1900*.Francis and Abigail Bradley's graves are in the cemetery at Hopewell Presbyterian Church in Mecklenburg County, where the former reads, "Francis Bradley, died November 14, 1780, aged 37 years.A friend to liberty, and privately slain by the enemies of his country."Abigail's reads, "Abigail Bradley, died September 23, 1817--69 years.Nor age, nor sex, nor worth can save poor mortal from the grave.Think, reader, as you now look on, you are walking onward to the tomb."
