Rebecca J Sims Bradshaw
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 4, 1815
Indiana, USA
Death: 1892
Indiana, USA

The maiden name of Rebecca's maternal grandmother was Rebecca Jordan, so it seems probable that the younger Rebecca's middle name was Jordan.

Rebecca married David Bradshaw on 12 Nov 1835 in Lebanon, Boone Co, IN. He died 1 July 1876, apparently in Arkansas. She was back in Clinton, Boone Co, IN, in the 1880 census, listed incorrectly as age "70," although she had been listed (correctly) as age "35" in the 1850 census in Boone Co, IN. She is believed to have died after 1892, possibly in Elizaville, Boone Co, IN. Does anyone know when and where she died and is buried?

[After I posted the question above, Mark Bradshaw sent this message on 8 May 2012: "Jay, I have recently restarted the Bradshaw family tree research. Rebecca was my 3rd great grandmother. I don't have a citation for the info, but my Uncle Larry had her death ABT 1892 with burial in the Sims Cemetery @ Middlefork, IN. I will try to get to Frankfort in the next couple of weeks and check the cemetery database for confirmation of that data." Thanks to Mark, and I'll update this when there is confirmation and a date; in the meantime, I've added Sims Cemetery as the burial place and 1892 as an APPROXIMATE date of death. -- Jay]

Mark subsequently reported (July 2012) that he was unable to find a legible stone for Rebecca in Sims Cemetery. However, it is still believed that she was buried there. -- Jay
