Bridget was born in 1800 in County Londonderry, Ireland, to unknown parents at this time. She married approximately 1822 in Ireland to Michael Bradley, (1793-1872), also born in County Londonderry, Ireland. Michael and Bridget had eight known children, all born in Ireland: John Bradley (ca 1824-1896), Patrick J. Bradley (ca 1826-1910), Mary E. Bradley-Kearney (ca 1832-1911), Michael C. Bradley (1833-1900), Dennis Bradley (ca 1834-1898), Annie Bradley-Henry (1838-1904), Bridget Bradley-O'Riell (??-??), and James H. M. Bradley (1843-1906). The family immigrated to the Baltimore, Maryland area in 1850. Reportedly, their son John was first to immigrate to the US and the whole family followed soon after John settled in Maryland. They lived a life of farming in Harford County until after the Civil War when the family relocated to Washington Twp, Cambria County, Pennsylvania, into a new farm. After her husband Michael died in 1872, Bridget lived with her daughter Annie Bradley-Henry. Both Bridget and Michael are buried in St. Aloysius Cemetery with several other family members.
