|Death: ||Jun., 1889|
Not much is known about Squire Smith Bradley.
Perhaps his wife was Elizabeth "Lizzie" Ruskauff (she died June 11, 1922 and was buried at Olivewood Cemetery, Riverside, Riverside County, California). Some family members say that Elizabeth's husband was named "Charles Bradley."
The Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, June 6, 1889, page 2 had a story about "'Squire Bradley" drowning in the Johnstown flood in Pennsylvania. This story lists a wife and several children who survived: James (the oldest), Aggie, Mamie, Tom, Raymond, Francis and Sadie. The first name "Squire" had an apostrophe before it, which may have meant that this was not a first name, but was a title meaning Esquire. In earlier years in the U.S. the title squire was given to a Justice of the Peace, for example "Squire Jones." It was also used to mean Justice of the Peace.
However, The Hayden Family (magazine) 1929-1933 (Volumes I through V), published by Charles Hayden in Chicago, Illinois, page 7 of Volume IV, Chart no. 194, shows that Squire Smith (son of Lydia Hayden and Patrick L. Bradley) had 10 children, one of whom was Squire Smith born Nov. 8, 1842; died Sept. 1, 1882. Page 7 says that Squire Smith married Lizzie L. Ruskauff.
Tombstone may or may not be present; the cemetery is too large for a general search.
