I'm researching the family of my gggg grandmother, Priscilla Bradley, but can't find any information on them. I don't know anything about her father, Abraham, or her mother, Sarah (Lane?), except that they were born about 1740 in Greenville, SC.
Priscilla Bradley, was born 29 Sept 1769 in Pendleton Dist., Pickens Co., SC, and died in 1832 in Habersham Co., GA. She married my gggg grandfather, James Bruce, about 1787 in Pendleton Dist., SC.
I believe they had 12 children:
1) Jonathan (b. 8 Feb 1788),
2) James (b. 31 Jan 1790, Wolf Creek, Pendleton Dist., m. Sep 1817 in Wolf Creek to Sarah Moore, and died 14 July 1861 in Cherokee Co., GA;
3) Ruth, b. 1 Sep 1793;
4) Laban, b. abt 1795;
5) Abraham (II)[twin], born 29 Jan 1798 in Wolf Creek, m. 3 Apr 1823 in Habersham Co., GA to Sarah Hood; died 2 Jun 1855 in Union Co, GA;
6) Rebecca [twin], born 29 Jan 1798;
7) Acquilla, born 24 March 1801;
8) Sarah Bradley, born 21 Mar 1802;
9) Betsy, born 24 Aug 1804;
10) Daniel A., born 3 Mar 1807;
11) George Osborn, born 2 Aug 1809; and
12) Patience Caroline, born 25 Aug 1812.

If you know anything about any of these individuals, please e-mail me at:

Thanks! Cheryl Jones

Please contact me for more information. My father's mother was Lilliam Bradley born in McComb, MS in 1881. I know very little about her but she was a Daughter of the American Revolution tracing herself to one William Bradley of N.C.. The family later shows up in Greensville, S.C. Might be some some connection.

My father was Charles Bradley Gandolfo, born 1906. His mother was Lillian Eleanor Bradly. I do not know her parents for sure.

Please let me know if you care to share information.

I am at I live in New Orleans, LA.

Gerald, thanks for the information. Do you know when the Bradley family you mentioned was in Greensville? I wonder if William and Richard Bradley in the Currituck Co. militia might be related to my Bradleys?
I wish I knew more about the ones I'm related to, but only have the information on Priscilla and her parents, Abraham Bradley and Sarah Lane.
I'll add your information to my notes, and if I come across anything relating to any of your Bradleys, I'll let you know. I appreciate being able to share information like this! Thanks again! Cheryl Jones
