Here is some information about John Bradshaw/Bratcher. I have always thought he was the son of William Bradshaw and Judith Scruggs. When I look at a list of their children, all appear to have been born between 1713 and 1725. That list shows JOHN to have been born in 1724. He married Jane Canada. Who she was is another mystery. Now, when I look at a list of the children of JOHN and Jane,I notice that they are all born between 1763 and 1793. This would have made him 41 when his first child was born and 71 when his last child was born. Something here doesn't add up. It looks like a generation has been missed here.
