Re: John William Braddy
Hit a bit of gold with that pension file on Charles Evans. His mother Nancy received the pension as Charles died in the war on July 2, 1863 at Memphis, Tenn from complications of severe diahhria. From documents dated in 1864 Nancy gave an affidavit stating she had two other sons besides Charles and those sons were not able to provide her any support as they had been in the service and were discharged due to disability as well as having their own families.
Thus, this lead me to this conclusion. In the 1850 Bartholomew Co, Indiana census John William Braddy and his brother William H appear with Nancy and George Evans along with Charles. Since Nancy had two other sons besides Charles, then that makes John and William her sons by a previous marriage. I believe after checking marriage records for Bartholomew and surrounding counties that Nancy, whos maiden name was Dowell, first married a Henry Braddy in 1840 Jennings Co Indiana and he is John and William's father. Henry is in the 1830 Geneva, Columbus, Jennings census but not the 1840 so I'm assuming he died between 1830 and 1840. Nancy then married George in 1840 and after he died in 1858, she married William Cox in 1865.
I found John William Braddy listed in the Civil War draft registry in Johnson Co Indiana. He's also listed in Company A, 93rd Indiana Infantry, same regiment as Charles just different company, but according to the file from the National Archives he was rejected and didn't serve. Have not located William in the Civil War records or the census. I believe he married a Mary Ann Trotter in McLean Co, Illinois in 1862 as that is where John was married and his family lived then. There is a William H Braddy in the Kane Co Illinois Civil War draft registry that fits but have not been able to locate him definatively any place except for his marriage in 1862.
Hope this helps.
