Pat, thanks so much for taking time to look in the "Sketches & chronicles of the town of Litchfield, CT..." book for my Bradley ancestors.

Fortunately I have found the William Richard Cutter volume "Genealogical and Family History of Western New York" includes the Bradley line I am researching. It runs Stephen, Abraham, Abraham, Leaming, Aaron, Horace, Leaming Hawkins Bradley [b. 10 Oct 1808].

The book says only of Horace's first child: "Leaming, married Mary Simonds and had several sons." That confirms the Barbour Collection entry. What I am seeking is a document with the names of Leaming and Mary's children, especially their sons. I believe one of them is my gg-grandfather -- who is recorded in Wisconsin records as having parents Leman H. Bradley and Mary Simons.

Any suggestions on other resources to try? I have written to the Litchfield Historical Society for help.
