This man was SO kind and sweet. Most of Bennie H. Bradford's information came from his official Texas death certificate. This was my Great Grandfather, and I called him Grandaddy Bradford. He died in Knox City where he lived, but he was buried in Croyell, Texas.

His death certificate states he was a farmer and ginner-agriculture

He was a Baptist.

One record said Bennie H. married Esther B. of Margaret Texas on January 20, 1910.
Another says January 26, and no year.

Smith Funeral Home handled arrangements.

His obit says he was born in Bristol, Tennessee.
They lived in Thalia, Foard County, Texas,Abilene, Taylor County, Texas, then in 1957 on to Knox City, Knox City County, Texas.
