Oh what a tangled web we weave! Seeking the parents of Henry Bradford born about 1812 in Maine, he married Mary Elizabeth Robinson born about 1814 in Maine. Henry and Mary E. children were: Adelaide born 1840 Knox Co, Maine; Mariette born Sept 1843 Knox Co. Maine married Francis M. Kauble; Allen born 1848 Knox Co. Maine, and Sarah born 1852 in Maine.
In 1850 Henry was in Cushing, Knox Co. Maine, in 1860 they were in Rock Fluff, Cass Co. Nebraska, and in 1870 they were in Omaha, Douglas Co. Nebraska.
And thus the problem starts: I think Henry’s parents were Cornelius Bradford born 1788 in Maine and Hannah Gay born 1786 in Maine. Cornelius’s parents were Joshua Bradford (1746-1827) and Martha Jameson; and Joshua’s parents were Joshua Bradford (1710-1758) and Hannah Bradford (1720-1758).
Joshua (1710) also had a son Cornelius born 1737 who married Patience Davis and this Cornelius had a son Cornelius (born 1786) who also married a Hannah Gay. And to make this tangled web more of a mess they all seem to be in Knox County Maine at the same time.
If anyone is doing research on this Bradford/Gay line I would like to compare information and try to get this mess untangled. Thanks
