Birth: Jan. 3, 1807
Kentucky, USA
Death: Dec. 8, 1874
Franklin County
Illinois, USA

Married first Magdalena Culley December 29, 1829 Posey County, Indiana. Married second Lenora A. Harris October 19, 1846, Posey County, Indiana.

The replacement stone for William has a deathdate of December 9, 1885, but an article in "Obits. and Tidbits 1850 - 1884 Franklin County, Illinois" states, "Died on the 8th day of December, 1874 of pneumonia, in Goode Township, Mr. William P. Bradley, aged 74 years. Mr. Bradley was a good citizen and a resedent of Franklin County for 20 years."

Recent DNA testing by a descendant of William Penn Bradley indicates that William may not be a son of David Robert Ewing Alexander Dunn (DREAD) Bradley and Elizabeth "Betsy" Kirby/Brazer.
