RE: Bradford family at Ridgelawn in Breckenridge
Just got back, we went to several cemeteries so I have to sit down and get all of the photos figured out and posted to Find A Grave. Sorry, the book that I was talking about is a book listing most of the burials in Ridgelawn cemetery in Breckenridge. It's not complete, that's for sure, but it's close enough to make it easier to find most people in it.

No, we are not related, I just don't mind helping someone out while I'm already making the trip to a cemetery that they are interested in. I was going to both the Wheeler & Ridgelawn cemeteries today so I took a quick look at what anyone was looking for at either (it's about a 2 hour trip for me one way there, so I don't do it often). I just happened to stumble across the mix up with your cemeteries. We did get the pictures of William R. & Cornelia Bradford's stones, and they are in Ridgelawn, not Wheeler. I'll add the pictures to the listing for them in the Ridgelawn cemetery.

We took some other pictures of Bradford stones that we came across, we'll add those to Find A Grave as well.

Bradford family at Ridgelawn in Breckenridge
Hello again,

So I did a bit of digging with the information that you have on William & Cornelia's pages. It looks like some of their children are also at Ridgelawn. I found them in my book. Harriet Dancer (& sons?), Charles & Bertha Bradford, Norman Bradford, and Newell & Lena Bradford. It looks like someone has recently added a lot of names to Ridgelawn on FindAGrave and she included your family members as well, so there are already memorial pages for them. I will look for the rest of these family members for you as well. You may want to request transfer of these memorials since it looks like this person just did a mass listing of the Breckenridge cemetery.

William & Cornelia Bradford
Hi Kathlene,

I was working on my planned trip to Breckenridge to go to Ridgelawn cemetery & decided to take a look at requests at the Wheeler cemetery since I would be that way. I saw your requests for William & Cornelia Bradford and took a look at the death cert. that you added for William. I was surprised that it said place of burial was Breckenridge, not Wheeler. I have a book with burials in the Ridgelawn cemetery in Breckenridge, and William & Cornelia are listed as being buried there. I will look for their stones at Ridgelawn (probably tomorrow) and get back with you.

There seems to be a mix up with the dates. You have the father born 1843 and the son born 1847?

RE: William Bradford
Thank you for the thank you. We did not see any more Bradfords in the area. I was on a mission to take all the pictures in section A so I know there were not any more around. If there were maiden names of mothers I'd be glad to check it out, as I have more pics to put in for that section. I was surprised to see how nice William Bradfords headstone held up from so long ago. Let me know if you need help from Saginaw. Janet

Yes, I notice it. But, I did not take the picture. I was hoping that who ever took the picture would add it to Opal's memorial

RE: Edward A Bradford
Hi...almost relative - 8-) not related to the original Gov Bradford. My line goes back to a Samuel Bradford, born approx 1736 in Mass, before it became a state. He was 53 when Geo Washington became our first president.

My dad, Herschel, moved from KY to MI in 1927 and that is where I was born. Edw A Bradford was his grandfather, and to my knowledge never left the state of KY.

Sure, I added it for you, if you would like me to transfer it to you let me know. This is my husbands relation on his mothers side. I'm sure you have more knowledge of the family then I do.

RE: Mahala Bradford Johns
Thank you for being receptive to the changes. It is awesome for you to have a family bible kept by Moses Bradford. Did he mention anything about his son William Bradford who marrid Rachael Lamphear. After Rachel died, he married Elizabeth McGinnis and they are buried in Whitesville Cemetery in Andrew County, Missouri. Rachael was born 25 Dec 1827 in Starr, Hocking, Ohio (now Brown Township, Vinton, Ohio, and died about 1860 in Warren, Ohio and married William Bradord 5 March 1843 in Hocking, Ohio (at least that is what is on I am trying to get into the Mayflower society and I need to get original birth, death, and marriage certificates or some alternative proof of these events. Moses was the third great grandson of Governor William Bradford who came on the Mayflower in 1620. Moses' grave is on Find A Grave. He is buried in New Plymouth Cemetery, New Plymouth, Vinton County, Ohio. If you have further information about his son William, I would love to have it. My email address is Thank you. My name is Maris Stanard and I live in Madison, Mississippi.

Would you consider sending me copies of the photos which were hard to read? With data I have here, I may be able to figure out who they are. If you're agreeable, you can send them to - any photos you haven't posted are welcome. Thanks!
