Marcellus,Bradbury NY to Iowa
Henry Alfred Marcellus 1852-1938 married to Martha Elizabeth Bradbury 1856-1948 they left Lewis County, NY and went west to Iowa- believe the Humbolt Co area- or Bradgate Iowa. My great uncle just mentioned that he was 4 years old when his family went out to Iowa to visit. The family was connected to a meat processing business that was sold he said to Rath Hams. Henry & Martha Elizabeth had a son Frederick James who died young, and John Peter Bradbury who married Ellen Rmsvig and two daughters Marian and Minnie.
Martha's brother also went west with his family and their names were Peter Bradbury II and his wife Eliza Ann "Trixie" Godden Bradbury. They had children: Esther m. George Payne Curry, James m. Minnie Caroline Herman, Marguerite, and Edna m. Frank Edward Marchant.
Esther Curry did genealogy work for the family but since then there has been no contact between any families living in the west with relatives that stayed in NY and I would like to make contact again with relatives out there.
