The Pierson-Bradley connection of the New England area Updated July 7, 2008
About Our Family Research
I am researching the Pierson-Bradley family from the New England area,My mother Arlene Louise Pierson (Bradley)recieved a printout of a family tree chart, dating back to 1760 in Guilford,Vt.to the Isreal Williams family.The chart was made in 1959 by Eunice M. Lamb and Edna Lamb Northrup both of Northrup Rd. Grosse Pointe Farms,36 Michigan.This started what now has become a 12 year and several hundred names later endeavor. I found out that grandfather Edward Clinton Bradley b:1884 was really Edward Clinton Bradway,and that he had gone to Canada in the early 1900's and there had married my grandmother Elizabeth Pearl Faulkner(Bessie) they had two daughters my mother and my aunt Winifred Ellen May Bradley.Just this last April I found out that grandfather was married prior to going to Canada.His 1st wife one Addie Melissa Frame of Monson,Ma.and they had five children.This information came to me from a Mrs Judith Thurston Dawson(Bradway),and her son Brad Dawson of No.Scituate,R.I.Now I have gained 5 new cousins and their families on my my family tree.I hope to meet with some of them if not all in the near future. If there is anyone knowing of the Bradway's,Dawson's,Faulkner's and Pierson's I would love to hear from you.I am still looking!
