Birth: Sep. 20, 1800
Connecticut, USA
Death: Jun. 4, 1889
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA

My great, great, great grandpa.

He was born on September 20, 1800 in Connecticut. He was possibly the son of David and Deborah Bradley and his middle name may be Wheeler but I am looking for proof of this.

On January 5, 1825 in Weston, Connecticut he married Clarissa Williams. With her he had Burr, Henry, Edson and David Bradley.

After the death of his first wife he married Mary Burr who was most likely a widow that had a daughter Harriet that later married his son David and they moved to New York. There they had Sarah Bradley (married Martin Luther Metcalf). At some point before his death he moved back to Connecticut.

He died on June 4, 1889 in Easton, Connecticut at the age of 88.

A lot of things are not as they were once believed about his family as a recent reading of his will has brought to light. A common belief is that Cora B Bradley (married Charles LeRoy Lobdell) is his daughter when she is referred to as his granddaughter and it mentions sons Henry and Burr that were previously unknown by me or other researchers.

Burr had two children Della and Irving L Bradley (married Mary C Raymond) and had died before his father. His son Henry married a woman named Almeda and had children Frank, William, Rosetta, Edson and Peter Bradley and moved to McKean County, Pennsylvania.
