According to Washington County Georgia Estate Papers 1829--1903 by Elizabeth Pritchard Newsome, Pages 38--39: Oliver is noted to be in Washington County Georgia, Division 91, Roll No: 87, Page Number 25, during the 1850 Georgia Census.

Census November 1850: Age of Oliver noted as 34 with occupation as a Planter. Personal goods valued at $100, and that he was born in North Carolina. It lists Elizabeth age 40 as wife; Joel age 10; Emiliza age 9, Carswell age 8, Moses Algerine age 4; and Hugh age 2. All of the above children are noted to have been born in North Carolina.

Oliver B. Braddy found in:

U.S. Selected Counties, 1850 Census Index
State: GA
County: Washington Co.
Location: 91st Division
Page #: 250
Census/Enumeration year: 1850

( ) 19, 1842. Division of Estate. Bk. A. Pg. 38. Oliver Braddy, Geo. W. Hammock, Winnie Smith and Cynthia Smith were heirs of Samuel T. Smith.
"Samuel T. Smith: Heirs; Oliver Braddy, Geo. W. Hammock, Winnie Smith and Cynthia Smith.
19 March 1842: Commissioners: John (X) Raines, James Vann, Raiford Hamilton and Jonathan Parker. (James Vann married Kezziah Cunningham. This places the Vanns, Cunninghams and Braddy's in the same location (Washington County Georgia) at the same time. It links the Cunninghams, Vanns, Braddys with the Brantleys, on down the line. It also connects the Braddys, Vanns, and Cunninghams with the Byrds, explorer of the north pole, and the builders and residents of Westover in Virginia. The Plat shows four (4) parts and also the widow's dower. James Hicks, Surveyor. Jeremiah Parker and Isaac Jones, C,C.

From Internet Braddy Forum:
John Braddy of Pitt Co m. Mariann May, dau of Allen May and Charlotty ____. Pitt Co N C DB D4, p. 118, 1883, Oliver B Braddy, Andrew J Braddy, James S Braddy, Martha A Braddy, Arsena Heath, Alafin Rains and Sarah Rains, of Ga. to I A Sugg, Atty of Pitt, N C and John A Bullock, Pitt, N C, interest in land in Pitt Co, Belvoir township, 32A drawn by Mary A May or Mary A Braddy, wife of John Braddy in division of Allen May, dec., k/a Lot 1, same conveyed by John Braddy to Howell Thomas by deed, Dec 5, 1835, adj. John A Bullock, Patsy May, and Wm. Thigpen.

Can someone give any or more information on this John Braddy who married Mariann May Of Pitt County North Carolina? Is this the same John Braddy who married Sarah Hall,the mother of Oliver, his sister Elizabeth, and their other brothers? Also, is this the same John Braddy who married Sarah Hoffner? This information is really crucial in the genealogy of this family, and perhaps holds a secret to the present seemingly impossible connection that we Braddy descendents are striving to make.

Oliver Braddy and Elizabeth Smith had the following children: Joel R., Emiliza, Carswell, Moses Algernon, Hugh and Robert S. Braddy. It appears that Oliver married (2) Martha Turner in 1866 and had more children. Oliver was living in Swainsboro in the 1860=1870 censuses so Elizabeth is probably buried there. Oliver's father was John Braddy, born in North Carolina and died in Washington County Georgia in 1854-5, leaving eleven children and 30 grandchildren, although only nine grandchildren were listed in his Last Will and Testament. Oliver is listed also as heir for estate of Samuel T. Smith in 1842.

Oliver is the oldest of John Braddy's children by his first marriage, Sarah Hall. Any information about this Sarah Hall would also be appreciated.

Any help would be greatfully appreciated and if I have data that may be helpful to you, just list your need.

Thanks loads.
Christine, mother of Stayce Osborne.
