Birth: Dec. 18, 1892
Springtown
Parker County
Texas, USA
Death: Jan. 17, 1954
Richmond District
Contra Costa County
California, USA

James was the son of Barton Henry Bradley and
Minnie Alice Addington.


After ten years of searching for his grave, I finally found it with the help of findagrave friends.

He had many brothers and sisters. This information was given by the vital statistics when he died.
He was the brother of:
Maudie Browder of Valley Ford, CA
Naomi Hunt of Mangum,Okla
Era Shipman, Carl Bradley and Iva Gipson all of Sonoma,CA
Alice Hickey of Glen Elen,CA
Orean Odel of Dennison,TX
Jason Bradley of Potales, NM
Arthur Bradley and Chester Bradley of Clovis,NM
Orvia Bradley of Shamrock, TX
Gordon Bradley of San Pablo,CA
Raymond Bradley of Oklahoma,Okla
This making 14 children in all to his parents.

At the time of his death he had 23 grandchildren and only one great grandchild. Of course now those numbers have changed greatly.

He married Effie Mae(Erwin)Bradley" on September 22, 1912 and had 11 children with her. They divorced and he took the oldest of the 11 children. He later moved to California where he passed away. My mother Derlene Short was his grand daughter and attended his funeral when she was 9.

He was a Jehovah Witness.
He lived with his son Kenneth Bradley in Pittsburg, CA.
He wrote my grandmother a letter before he died which I put a copy of on this site. A book about his wife that I wrote is published in Amarillo, Tx and Weatherford, TX library. It is titled, The Erwin family.
