Would like to know if there is a family connection with the Bradbury family and Reverend William True Sleeper? Rev. Sleeper, who was in the Aroostook are and helped found several churches & lived in Sherman, Aroostook, Maine in 1870, with wife Emily, sons William & Henry, daug. Emma. Also listed with them are ?Thomas? Bradury, 20 and Julia Bradbury, 18.--unknown connection

My great grandfather William S. Ellingwood, listed "Sleeper" or "Sluper" as middle name in the 1917-1918 draft card. His occupation-clergy.

Also found this mention of Mrs. W.T. Sleeper and Mrs. G.F. Ellingwood in Caribou 1872. William's mother, Rachel Jane Bradbury, wife of George Fuller Ellingwood.

BANGOR WHIG AND COURIER
Bangor, ME, Tuesday Morning, August 27, 1872

Mrs. G.F. Ellingwood and Mrs. W. T. Sleeper were thrown from a carriage at Caribou, receiving quite severe injuries.

Can anyone add to this info?
Thanks,
Yo-Jean Huff Benson
