Bradford Surnames

BRADFORD the Immigrant: surname saturday

The Bradford man from whom I am descended came to the United States in the mid-1770s.  He is thought to have been born around 1745 in the area of Yorkshire, England.  What forces drove him to leave his family and what resources permitted his passage are subjects of conjecture.  His military service to his adopted country is not.

This man is my Bradford Immigrant.  By collating Federal Census data, an Ancestral Register Report by Doug Kreis and a family history shared by Ray Jackson I can connect my grandmother, Kerma Pauline Bradford Minor, to this English-American, John Bradford, Senior.

I am a keeper of my family's lore, chasing after my ancestors' tales in south central New York, southwestern Pennsylvania and Southside Virginia. The stories and photographs that I share on this blog are my intellectual property. While I do my very best to provide well researched posts, I do not pretend to have reached genealogical proof standards. Therefore, much of this work is to generate conversation among interested parties. If you would like to share my work or my records, please contact me: dkaysdays (at) gmail (dot) com.
