Old Bradford Farm/Barnes
Hi Jim, I'm doing some research on the Barnes family that appears to have purchased "Pleasure", the tract of land Robert Bradford owned and was wondering if you have any information on William Barnes, the one who purchased it. Any info would be welcome. Thanks a bunch.

General Maxwell Davenport Taylor and General George Catwell Marshall Jr. are third cousins twice removed

The first common ancestor for Maxwell Taylor and George Marshall Jr. is Robert Bradford.

Mem# 19712021
When I posted the Morris memorials + many others in 2007 it was from an earlier census that just listed what was on the markers.

The info you supplied has been added and in the bio you have been referenced if more info is wanted.

You can post the marker photo to the original memorial 19712021 and delete the later duplicate memorial.

Good Hunting.

RE: 19712021 Martha Bradford Morris
Hi, Jim! Thanks for the note. I am not the manager of the other memorial so I can't do a thing. If you're within the guidelines of a transfer, the original creator can transfer the memorial to you; otherwise, yours is the duplicate and should be deleted. Other people have contacted Find a Grave and have had duplicates merged into one but I've never done that myself. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance. Take care.

location of Guthrie Cemetery
I am the great-great- great granddaughter of Archibald and Elizabeth Guthrie. I know the cemetery is in Whitley Twp. But do you have a road name or exact address for the cemetery. My family would like to visit but are unable to find it.

RE: Robert Bradford d 1802
Hi Jim,

No I don't think he took a photo of the tombstone. but somehow he collected photos of most of the family. I did manage to scan the photos those I have. David had a large box of Bradford research and I only had access to it for a few days I grabbed what I could and so wish I could get it again but doubt that will happen. I will try again to get in touch with Dave. He did all of the research. After his daughter died he seemed to change and became quite reclusive and we lost total contact with him until last year. He contacted the family but has since gone back to Oregon and we have heard nothing since then. It makes sense that Robert wouldn't have been burried too far away since the cemetery is abt 10 miles away if he didn't go to live with any of his kids. You found Margaret there? what did her tombstone say? and do you have any idea about her last name??

thanks again

RE: Robert Bradford d 1802
Hi Jim,

Sorry for the delay. I have been taking photoshop classes and totally swamped. OK I looked up my info for Robert Bradford. The information on his death and burial comes from the work of David Henry. He was the one who gave me the information on Robert. In his notes he states that the age on the grave stone stated that Robert was 72 years old. He gave me this information years ago and I guess I assumed since he said that the information came from the grave stone and stated that as his source it was accurate. If you have gone through the cemetery and can't find the stone either it is NOW missing or David didn't put down the right cemetery. I can of course remove the memorial as I wouldn't want to put in Find A Grave any information that is inaccurate. I had David's original notes for a long time and extracted what I could before I needed to return them. I so wish I still had them and could send you all the little bits he did the research and collected. I have tried to contact him but he is rather reclusive. I will try again and see if I can get him to answer my e-mails. Please let me know if you would like me to remove his memorial until there is further proof either way
