Catherine Miles was the daughter of William Kinsey Miles. She married Joseph Bradley on 24 July 1866 in Georgia. They had at least 10 children including Etta S., Mattie B., William S., Nannie M., Catherine M., Forney J., Robert W., Lela, Irvin Howard and Ella Mae.
An interesting note is that Catherine married the son of her father's second wife (Susannah M. Ponder Bradley) from her first marriage. She was about two years old when her father remarried to Susannah Ponder Bradley, which fits with the information in her obituary. She was actually raised with her future husband!
Obituary (name of paper unknown):
Mrs. Jos Bradley Died Monday
The sad death of Mrs. Joseph Bradley occurred Monday evening at her home near this city. Mrs. Bradley had been ill for only two days, and her death came very unexpectedly. She was 64 years of age and had lived on the place where she died since she was 2 years of age. She was the wife of Ex-county Commissioner Joseph Bradley, to whom deep sympathy has gone out from those who know that his deceased has been not only his wife for forty-four years but they had been playmates as children since Mrs. Bradley was 2 years of age – his companion, it might be said for 62 years!
The deceased was one of Bartow county's oldest and most respected female citizens. She was beloved by her neighbors and esteemed by a large circle of friends. There are eight children of Mr. and Mrs. Bradley now living: W. S. Bradley, F. J. Bradley, and Mrs. S. M. Barnette, of Chattsworth; R. W. Bradley, E. H. Bradley, Miss Nannie Bradley, Mrs. W. W. Crow and Mrs. G. A. Shaver, of this city.
The funeral was held Tuesday at 2 P.M., and the remains were interred at Cross Roads Church.
