Descendants of Delaney "Laney" Bradley



Please note:
I am hugely indebted to Shirley Houston, L. Mardelle "Mardy" Powell Baugh, Marie Manasco, and Joy M. Coker (see"Sources" below) for the information presented in this report.  I have confirmed very little of it and cannot vouch for its veracity, but it is a wonderful starting point for further research on the families mentioned.  Much of the information has been gathered verbatim from older family members.  Names in this color are our family's direct ancestors.  Please contact me (address below and home page) if you can add to or correct this report.  Enjoy!


First Generation

1.  DELANEY "LANEY"1 BRADLEY was born 1780 in South Carolina, and died Aft. 1850 in Perry County, Mississippi; buried in Sylvester Cemetery, Perry Co., MS.   Family legend has it that Gen. OMAR BRADLEY of WWII fame is descended from our Bradley stock.  This remains to be researched. DELANEY "LANEY" BRADLEY was living in Mississippi by 1816.

Children of DELANEY "LANEY" BRADLEY are:
2.      i. SION LEM?2 BRADLEY, b. Bet. 1803 - 1805, North or South Carolina; d. December 19, 1877,
            Mississippi; buried
            in the Lazarus-Walley Cemetery, Perry County, MS..
3.     ii. JAMES MARION BRADLEY, SR., b. 1809, Sampson County (?), North Carolina; d. September
            1880, Perry
           County, Mississippi, of consumption (tuberculosis).
4.    iii. SARAH BRADLEY, b. March 04, 1813, North Carolina or Perry County, Mississippi; d. April 12,
            1898, Perry County, Mississippi; buried in Sylvester Cemetery, Perry Co., MS.
5.    iv. QUINCY ADAM BRADLEY, b. April 08, 1814, North Carolina?; d. November 20, 1867,
           Arlington-Fairhope Community, Mississippi; buried inSylvester Cemetery, Perry County, MS.



Second Generation

2.  SION LEM?2 BRADLEY (DELANEY "LANEY"1) was born Bet. 1803 - 1805 in North or South Carolina, and died December 19, 1877 in Mississippi; buried in the Lazarus-Walley Cemetery, Perry County, MS..  He married AQUELLA X. (BRADLEY) 1834.  She was born 1817 in North Carolina, and died March 08, 1889 in Sand Hill, Greene County, Mississippi; buried in the Lazarus-Walley Cemetery, Perry County, MS.

Notes for SION LEM? BRADLEY:
Sion (probably pronounced "shawn") was a soldier in the War of 1812 according to some notes in Mardy Powell's family group sheets, but this hardly seems likely since Sion was only born in 1803 and would have been only 9 years old when the war began.  He died at a good age and is buried in the Lazarus-Walley Cemetery.

The Lazarus-Walley Cemetery is on property at Sand Hill (near Richton) MS.  This property is owned by Truman Walley, who lives in Leakesville, Greene Co. MS.  Go Hwy 42 West & Cemetery is on right (fenced in), abt 1/2 mile from road.  This is where Sion, Aquilla Bradley and some family members are buried, per Myrtle Bradley Walley.

Mardy does not believe that MS residents Tom and Henry Bradley are related to our branch of the family, unless very distantly.

 Children of SION BRADLEY and AQUELLA (BRADLEY) are:
       i. MARY ELIZABETH3 BRADLEY, b. 1835, Perry County, Mississippi; d. Perry County, Mississippi.
      ii. JOHN BRADLEY, b. 1837, Perry County, Mississippi; m. MARJORIE "MARJ" (BRADLEY), Abt.
          1855, Clarke County, Alabama.
     iii. MARTHA BRADLEY, b. 1840, Perry County, Mississippi; m. DANIEL BANKSTON, 1857, Clarke
          County, Alabama.
     iv. WILLIAM GEORGE "GEORGE" BRADLEY, b. 1842, Perry County, Mississippi; d. June 1863, in
          the Civil War; m. MARY JANE FREEMAN, Perry County, Mississippi.  (Who Married Whom,
          Perry County, Mississippi, gives Vicey as the wife of George Bradley (son of Sion) and also as the
          wife of George Washington Bradley (son of Quincy A.).  Obviously there is a problem here.
       (Further research needed.)
    v.  SARAH ANN BRADLEY15, b. January 20, 1848, Try Again, Perry County, Mississippi; d. April
         30, 1906; m. WILEY RANDALL WALLEY, 1874, Perry County, Mississippi; b. 1854.
    vi.  NANCY BRADLEY, b. 1852.
   vii.  WILLIAM RICHARD BRADLEY, b. 1859; m. MARY J. BOLTON, 1891, Perry County,
          Mississippi; b. 1866.  Mary was William's second wife.  (Who Married Whom, Perry County,
         Mississippi).

3.  JAMES MARION2 BRADLEY, SR. (DELANEY "LANEY"1) was born 1809 in Sampson County (?), North Carolina, and died September 1880 in Perry County, Mississippi, of consumption (tuberculosis).  He married ELIZABETH HOLDER February 02, 1832 in Clarke County, MS.  Elizabeth was the  daughter of JEREMIAH HOLDER and ANNA (HOLDER).  Elizabeth  was born 1814 in Clarke County, MS, and died April 06, 1895 in Perry County, Mississippi.

Notes for JAMES MARION BRADLEY, SR.:
"James M. Bradley . . . was born in North Carolina, but while he was still a child his parents came to Mississippi [Territory, settling in the portion which later became Clarke County, MS], where he was reared to manhood and where he was identified with agricultural pursuits during the entire course of his independent career.  He became the owner of a good farm in Perry county [Mississippi] and was held in high esteem by all who knew him, being a man of positive character and unquestionable probity and having taken an active interest in public affairs of a local nature.  His death occurred in Perry county
in the year 1879."  (from Mississippi, Comprising Sketches of Counties, Towns, Events, Institutions, and Persons, Arranged in Cyclopedic Form, planned and edited by Dunbar Rowland, LL.D., Director Mississippi Dept. of Archives & History; Vol. III, Atlanta, 1907)

Jefferson County, Mississippi, Wills 1800-1833 (Is this our James?):

"26 Oct. 1813.  Lilburn I. Henderson, executor of William Trigg, dec'd, took oath with Matthew Willoughby, Connally Findley, George Rosenbaum, George W. Dixon, Samuel Knott, Cirad Stephens, Samuel Fulton, by John Fulton, his attorney in Fact, Isaac Baker, John Menefee, Peter Long, JAMES BRADLEY [capitals mine], Zacheriah Shugart, John Apperson, Michael Shaver, WIlliam Stone, John Rosenbaum, William Trimble, John Mitchell and Martin Bealy by Phikip Baltzell their attorney in

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
He appears also to have witnessed the will of Young Gaines of Perry County, Mississippi on April 9, 1829.  Beneath his signature is that of Aquilla X. Bradley, who was his brother Sion's wife.

James was 23 years old and Elizabeth 18 years old at the time of their marriage in Clarke County, Alabama.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
The following notice appeared in the Ellisville (Jones Co., MS) newspaper:

"Mrs. Elizabeth Bradley age 83, mother of Col. J. M. Bradley, died last Sunday night and will be buried next to her husband near Augusta [Perry Co.]."

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Mardy Powell Baugh, a BRADLEY descendant, notes in her files that family knowledge includes the following:

"James M. Bradley, Sr. was Postmaster in Old Augusta, Perry Co MS in 1854.  He, along with Edmund Merritt (Gr-Gr-GF) served on the Grand Jury, who hung the notorious gangster James Copeland."  Other family members serving on the Grand Jury with him were Edmund Merritt Sr., Quincy A. Bradley, John H. Holder, and Milton J. Albritton.

Mardy mentions further that James was a member of the Runnelstown, MS, Masonic Lodge.

Mardy's notes state that James was in the Mississippi 27th Infantry, Co. G., as of September 17, 1862, and was wounded at the Battle of Lookout Mountain in Tennessee.  He would have been in late middle age at this time -- perhaps this information should be attached to J.M. Bradley Jr.?

Third Generation

6.  JAMES MARION3 BRADLEY, JR., COL. (JAMES MARION2, DELANEY "LANEY"1) was born February 19, 1833 in MS Territory, later Clarke County, Alabama, and died March 18, 1902 in Jones County, Mississippi; buried in Bynum Cem in Ellisville, Jones Co., MS.  He married NANCY CAROLINE BYNUM 1854 in Perry County, Mississippi, daughter of DRURY BYNUM and JUDITH WELCH.  She was born May 06, 1835 in MS Territory, later Clarke County, Alabama, and died February 27, 1910 in Jones County, Mississippi; buried in Bynum Cem. in Ellisville, Jones Co., MS.

Notes for JAMES MARION BRADLEY, JR., COL.:
James Marion Bradley married Nancy Caroline Bynum in 1854, which is several years AFTER our Maggie was supposed to have been born.  However, our date of 1847 makes her at least two years older than her husband, John.  It is possible that our date was copied wrong, and should actually read 1857, which would have her fitting into James and Nancy's family quite nicely.  It is significant that though James was born in Alabama and died in Clarke County, Mississippi, his grave is in Ellisville, which is where our Maggie is supposed to have lived with her father.

James may have gone by the name "Marion", for that is how he is listed in the 1850 Census, which gives his age as 17 years and his occupation as that of Farmer.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
On Saturday, January 23, 1879, the following notice appeared in the Ellisville Newspaper:
"Col. J. M. Bradley was on a Masonic lecture tour in Smith Co. last week."

Another mention was made in the issue of Saturday, July 21, 1894:
"Mr. J. M. Bradley presented us with a 46 lb. melon this week."

The issue of Saturday, September 5, 1896, records this:
"Homestead Notice: James M. Bradley, Hd #23162, W2 NW4 sec. 1, T6N R12W and S2 SW4 sec. 36 T7N R12W.  Wit: G. W. Melvin, T. J. Strickland, I. G. Woodward, D. W. Aplin, all of Ellisville."

7.  Dr. GEORGE WASHINGTON3 BRADLEY. (JAMES MARION2, DELANEY "LANEY"1) was born 1834 in Perry County, Mississippi (or possibly in 1835 in Jones County, Mississippi), and died March 12, 1904 in Wayne City, Jones County, Mississippi; buried at Old Salem Methodist Church  at Strengthford in Wayne County, Mississippi.  He married REBECCA JANE BYRD 1861 in Wayne County, Mississippi..  She was born November 1842 in Alabama, and died Abt. 1912 in Hattiesburg, Forrest County, Mississippi; was living with daughter Hilda, near Hattiesburg,  at the time; buried Old Salem Meth. Cem..

Bessie Mae Guthrie, Granddaughter of George W. Bradley, from data provided to me by Shirley Houston:

"George W. Bradley is listed as a physician on census records, but he was an old-fashioned country herbal doctor.  He taught my grandmother, Mary Virgie (called Mollie) herbal medicine when she was child.

"There was a place called Warsaw Camp near them at Ellisville where there was an epidemic.  Grandma thought it was flu, but it may have been yellow fever.  A lot of Indians were very sick, many of them died.  George Bradley was called on to help because the doctors couldn't take care of all the sick people.  He treated them with herbal medicines, in spite of the doctors' objections.  They used medicine like tar plasters (turpentine, castor oil, and tar)."

(Note:  Warsaw Camp was a logging camp.  Logging was really big then with the huge forests in that area.  The epidemic was an influenza epidemic, and many, many people died.  by Shirley Houston)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
As told by Quint Williams, January 14, 1978, in data provided to me Shirley Houston:

"Doctor Bradley always rode a big red horse in making his calls.  Hilda or Tilda [Laura Mathilda] usually made the rounds with him.  She would hop up in the saddle & ride behind George to visit his patients.

"Cicero Bradley killed Rube Pinder (Rube was Quint Williams' uncle).  They had been to court & stopped at the Eucutta Bridge.  After & [sic] argument Rube pulled a knife on Cicero.  Cicero picked up a stick to break the knife out of his hand.  When he swung the stick he hit the pistol that Rube was carrying in his vest pocket.  The pistol discharged shooting Rube in the eye killing him.  Rube is buried at Sand Hill.  This was the same year that Quint's brother, Walter, was born 1887.

"George Bradley lived just this side of Eucutta Bridge. "

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
As told by Aunt Lona Beasley, 1977, "George Bradley married Jane Byrd (Bart's sister).

More About REBECCA JANE BYRD:
There is some reason to believe that she was also known as Jane Brooks.  Perhaps the surname BROOKS was from a first marriage or the name of a step father.  However, it is more likely that her maiden name was indeed BYRD.
Alt. middle name: "J.", per Marie Manasco
Alt. sp. of middle name: "A."

Sherrod also had property in Jackson County, Mississippi.

1867: Sherrod was registered as a voter in the Merritt Beat of _______________ County, Mississippi

Notes for SARAH MERRITT:
Mardy Powell Baugh writes:

"The Merritt Family owned 2/3rds of Old Augusta, Perry County, Miss.  They were in the Lumber Business and shipped lumber through the port of New Orleans, LA.

"They had a large Plantation in Old Augusta, and entertained dignataries (sic) coming through.  They later built another home.  It is said that the Merritts had lots of money, which they kept in a locked toom, and some they buried, as they did not feel at ease using the Banks.

"One day their Granddaughters (Sarah Louisea & Eleanor Bradley) were visiting their grandparents and found the door cracked, so they went in and found bags of money.  It is said that the buried money was not found after their deaths.

"Edmund Merritt, Sr made various business trips and while in Wilcox County, AL, he was "waylayed' and killed, around 1849-50.  Edmund and familyy had lived in "Choba", Wilcox Co., Al at one time.

"Older Merritt relatives said most of their families were buried in their Merritt Cemetery in Old Augusta, but it has been grown over and no graves found in many years.  What a shame!

"The above information was passed down by Eleanor Bradley to her daughter, Agnes and she gave it to me (cousin) several years ago."  (Mardy Powell Baugh)

10.  RUFUS P.3 BRADLEY (JAMES MARION2, DELANEY "LANEY"1) was born March 21, 1849 in Perry County, Mississippi, and died January 21, 1922 in Laurel General Hospital, Jones County, Mississippi (of apoplexy); his residence was in Wayne County, Mississippi; buried Old Salem Methodist Church cemetery.  He married SOPHRONIA "SOPHIA" EMALINE MCDONALD December 17, 1879 in Perry County, Mississippi, daughter of ALEXANDER MCDONALD and MARY BYNUM.  She was born April 28, 1862 in Perry County, Mississippi, and died 1917 in Wayne County, Mississippi; buried in Old Salem Methodist Church cemetery.

From MISSISSIPPI, Comprising Sketches of Counties, Towns, Events, Institutions, and Persons. Arranged in Cyclopedic Form., planned and edited by Dunbar Rowland, LL.D., Volume III, Atlanta, 1907, a copy of which article was graciously provided to this author by Shirley Houston of Houston, Texas

            BRADLEY, RUFUS P., one of the representative famers of Wayne county, and a valued member of the board of supervisors of the county, has his postoffice address at Strengthford.  He has passed his entire life thus far in  the State of Mississippi, and has achieved success through his own efforts, which have been directed along legitimate lines of endeavor and guided and guarded by a spirit of absolute integrity and honor.  He was born in Perry county, Miss., March 21, 1849, and is a son of James M. Bradley.  His father was born in North Carolina, but while he was still a child his parents came to Mississippi, where he was reared to manhood and where he was identified with agricultural pursuits during the entire course of his independent career.  He became the owner of a good farm in Perry  county and was held in high esteem by all who knew him, being a man of positive character and unquestionable probity and having taken an active interest in public affairs of a local nature.  His death occurred in Perry county in the year 1879.   Rufus P. Bradley was reared to the sturdy discipline of the homestead plantation, in whose work and management he early  began to assist, while his educational advantages were somewhat limited, owing to the exigencies of time and place.  His schooling was principally secured in Jasper county, where he resided several years.  He made his efforts count in his youth and in course of time became one of the prosperous farmers of his native county, where he was held in the highest popular esteem, being called upon to serve in various offices of public trust. He was a member of the board of supervisors of Perry county for two years, was a county surveyor for an equal period, served four years as assessor, and made an excellent record in the office of sheriff, of which he was incumbent four years.   In 1892 Mr. Bradley disposed of his interests in Perry county and removed to Wayne county, where he now owns and operates a well improved plantation.  He has served as justice of the peace of this county, and his services have also been called into requisition as a member of the board of supervisors, of which he is a member at the present time.  He is in control of important interests as local land agent for the great lumbering firm of D.A. Blodgett & Company, of Grand Rapids, Mich., whose holdings in Mississippi timber lands are very extensive.  In politics Mr. Bradley is unwavering in his allegiance to the Democratic party, and he is affiliated with Waynesboro lodge Free and Accepted Masons, having been identified with this fraternity since 1870.  In December, 1879, Mr. Bradley was married to Miss Sophia F. McDonald, daughter of Alexander McDonald, a prominent and influential citizen of Simpson county, Miss., and of the children of this union seven are living, namely: Margaret E., Mary E., who is married and resides in Wayne county; Annette, wife of J. D. Dykes, of Perry County; and Lola, Laura, J. Rufus and William, who remain at the parental home, as does also the eldest daughter."

John’s brother Thomas, known as “Chiz”, owned a furniture store in Meridian, and John was  a clerk in the store.  He lived with his brother.

At the time of his marriage to Maggie, John was living in Meridian, Lauderdale County, Mississippi.  Evidently he moved to Ellisville upon his marriage.  A few years, later, the following notice appeared in the Ellisville (Jones County, Mississippi) newspaper, issue of Saturday, June 3, 1893:

"J. E. Wiat & family of Covington Co. are visiting their old home in Ellisville."

J.E. Wiatt and his bride, Maggie A. Bradley, were married in the home of Maggie's parents, with the Rev.  E. (C.?) J. Taylor officiating.

Much more information about this family may be found in "The WIATT / WYATT Family of Virginia and Mississippi."

DAVENPORT 1877 in Perry County, Mississippi, son of J. DAVENPORT and MARY (DAVENPORT).  He was born November 1849 in Alabama, and died Bef. 1910 in Jones County, Mississippi; possibly buried in Bethel Methodist Cemetery, outside of Sandersville, but no grave marker.  Grave may be marked by a bush.  She married (2) G. L. RODGERS June 14, 1912.    She married (3) TOM EASTLAND 1920.

Notes for LAURA L. "MATILDA" BRADLEY:
Per Don Davenport, one of Laura's descendants:

"I first found Laura/Calvin in the 1880 census living next door to Calvin Bradley.  . . . Calvin Davenport appeared to [be] a farm laborer most of his life.  Sometime between 1800 and 1900 Calvin/Laura moved to Shubuta, Clarke County, MS and this is where most of the children were born.  Some Bradley's (sic) also lived there so I'm fairly certain that there is probably a connection to them.  Calvin/Laura did not own land until 1904.  This has always bothered me.  So much land was being given away during that period; why did they wait until 1904?

"Family legend has it that Laura's family had possibly disowned her when she married Calvin.  It has been stated by more than one of my older Davenport relatives, that Laura's father did not like Calvin...

"I am pretty certain that Laura married at least 3 times.  First to Calvin, then to a G. Rodgers after Calvin's death, and finally to a Tom Eastman (or Eastland).  The third husband was apparently a constable in Louisiana.  My family is pretty certain that she [Laura] died on her oldest son's farm (nears Sandersville, Jones Co.) around 1928.  I have not been able to locate any burial info on Calvin or Laura, but it is believed that they are buried around there somewhere."
