I am conducting research on JOSEPH B. (JOE) BRADDY, b. December 25, 1824 in Johnston County, NC. Joe was first married to an unknown person (S. BRADDY) born in MO in 1826, and had Margaret L. b. 1867 in Texas and William George Washington b. 10 July1868 in Ft. Worth , Texas . Margaretís census information and Williamís death certificate indicates their mother was born in MO. Recently received information locates J. Brady (Braddy) along with daughter, Margaret age four and son, William age two in the Ft. Worth , Tarrant County , TX 1870 Census. Tarrant County, TX mortality schedules for 1870, lists M.E Braddy, female, less than age one, died in December 1869 and S. Braddy, age 44 assumed to be M.E.s mother, died in March 1870. Speculation would lead one to believe that at age 44, other children existed prior to 1870 other than M.E., Margaret and William. Joe was later married to FANNY MITCHELL, b. 10 May 1840 in Lawrence, IN, as indicated in the Buffalo Gap/Abilene, Texas1880 Census and they had four additional children as noted below.
.       Joe Braddy was included in the family of JOHN M. AND MARGARET L. BRADDY SIMPSON in Cooke County , TX in the 1910 Census. Joe accompanied his daughter and son-in-law, Margaret (Maggie) L. Braddy and John M. Simpson, to Teton County , WY . Joseph died on November 5, 1916 in Jackson, WY and is buried in Aspen Cemetery, Teton County, WY. Census entry listed Joe as a widower at the time of his death
Fanny at age 55 and son Charley at age 23, b. 1880 noted in Ada , Pontotoc County , OK- area (Ada-Indian Territory Census of 1906). Fanny was also mentioned in a 1911 edition of the Ada Evening News, along with Charley and Dick. FANNY MITCHELL BRADDY at age 74 was noted in the 1920 Census in Cimarron Township , Pawnee County , OK . Fanny was living with her half sister, VINA J. Kinder WYATT. Vina b. Oct 1857 in IN was the wife of CHARLES E. WYATT b. 10 Apr 1856 in Cass County , MO. Charles E. Wyatt was the son of JAMES MORGAN WYATT know to be buried in Pioneer-Boggess Cemetery in St. Jo, Montague, TX, James Morgan Wyatt was a bootmaker and reportedly a Montague County Sheriff. Vina and Fannyís mother was ANGELINE MAYFIELD MITCHELL KINDER, also buried in Pioneer-Boggess Cemetery. I would greatly appreciate any leads to these Montague County residents; i.e. birth certificates, death certificates, marriage info, birth of children, etc. I suspect that Fanny in about 1870 met and married my great grandfather, JOSEPH B. BRADDY somewhere between Tarrant County and possibly in Montague County.

Joe had the following children:
MARGARET L. BRADDY, b. 1865 in TX d. Jackson, WY and buried in Aspen Cemetery . Maggie married rancher/cattleman John M. Simpson in Taylor County , Tx on August 28, 1881 and had the following children:

SALLIE A. BRADDY b. 1874 in Texas and married R. Alford 1 Mar 1893 in Graham, TX. It is believed that they possibly had at least one son, William A. Alford b. June 09, 1918 in OK; d. April 04, 1990 in Riverside, CA. (This son is not validated)
George E. Braddy b. 1876 in TX. Disappeared after 1880 Abilene Census. Probably died in Abilene area at young age.
Dick or maybe Richard b. 1879 in TX, died of TB in Ada, OK on January 17, 1911 at the home of Charley and is buried in Rosedale Cemetery, Ada, OK.
Charley Braddy b. 1880 in TX, was a Ada , OK police officer who was shot and killed in Ada , OK in 1912. Buried in Rosedale Cemetery , Ada , OK on April 26, 1912.
I would appreciate any information re Braddy, Wyatt, Simpson, Alford families.
