MMQ NOTE:
CULLEN BRADLEY/BRADLY s/o CULLEN BRADBURY/BRADBERRY
THERE WAS A MISTAKE MADE WHEN THE SON ENTERED INTO MILIATARY SERVICE AND HIS NAME WAS LISTED AS BRADLEY/BRADLY INSTEAD OF BRADBURY/BRADBERRY
AND HE KEPT IT THAT WAY.

HISTORY OF CLAY COUNTY 301

CAPTAIN CULLEN BRADLEY.—Noteworthy among the venerable and
respected citizens of Harmony is Captain Cullen Bradley, who faithfully
served his country during his early manhood, and was subsequently for
many seasons closely identified with the agricultural interests of Van
Buren township.

A son of Cullen Bradhury, he was born in Wayne
county, North Carolina, May 15, 1828.

His paternal grandfather, Cullen
Bradbury, Sr., a life-long resident of North Carolina, was of English
ancestry.
Born in 1792, in Wayne county, North Carolina, Cullen Bradbury
there spent his earlier life, learning while young the trades of both a
plasterer and a bricklayer, serving an apptenticeship of seven years at the
former and of three years at the latter. Migrating to Tennessee in 1835,
he there followed his trades most successfully, building the court house
and jail at Smithville and at Woodbury, and working on large buildings
in other places. Settling permanently in Wilson county, Tennessee, he
resided there until his death in 1848. His wife, whose,maiden name was
Zilpha Atkinson, was born in North Carolina and died about 1836 in
Woodbury, Tennessee. She reared five children, as follows: Cullen,
the subject of this brief biographical sketch; Curtis, who lost his life at
the battle of Buena Vista during the Mexican war; Martha; Sarah; and
Lemuel, who died at Knoxville, Tennessee, at the age of sixteen years.
*But seven years old when his parents migrated to Tennessee, Cullen
Bradley, as we now know him, was soon afterwards left motherless, and
at the age of twelve years was bound out to a farmer. Finding a good
home, he lived with his employer until 1848, when he enlisted in Company
B, Second United States Artillery. At the December muster of that
year it was found that the former clerk had made a mistake in enrolling
the names of Company B, giving the name Bradley instead of Bradbury
to the subject of this sketch, a name which he has since retained. At
the expiration of his term of five years, Mr. Bradley re-enlisted for five
years in Company D, same regiment, and when that term had expired
again re-enlisted in the same company, serving until October 23, 1861,
when he was discharged so that he might join the brigade that was being
raised by Hon. John Sherman at Mansfield, Ohio. Subsequently, when
the Sixth Ohio Independent Light Battery was organized, he was com-
missioned captain of the battery, which he commanded until February,
1865, when he was mustered out of service, During the time that he was
with his comrades Captain Bradley was acting chief of the artillery con-
nected with Woods’s division of the Army of the Cumberland, taking
an active part in all of its marches, campaigns and battles, at all times
proving himself a brave and gallant soldier. Onhis retirement from the
army he came to Van Buren township, purchased a farm, and until 1907
devoted his energies to agricultural pursuits. Disposing of his land, he

then came to Harmony, where he has since resided free from active work
and cares.
Captain Bradley married, February 4, 1864, Catherine Mattayaw,
who was born in Richland county, Ohio, a daughter of Jacob and Rosanna
(Hetler) Mattayaw, her father being a native of Alsace and her mother
of Germany. The Captain and Mrs. Bradley have one child, Mary, who
married William R. Crowder, of Rockyford, Colorado, and has three
children, Rowena 0., William Cullen and Josephine. Gertrude Olive
Day, now Mrs. Ora Grimes, of Terre Haute, was a member of the
Bradley family from the age of three years until she married.

MMQ NOTE:
I am searching for NANCY A. KINGCADE/KINCAID who married 1839-Cannon or Wilson Co TN to Cullen Bradbury/Bradberry [had a son and father, both named Cullen Bradbury]

*Cullen BRADLEY [Bradbury/BRADBERRY], was NOT the son of Nancy A Kingcade/Kincaid-Bradbury. He was b:about 1828 and was 11 y/o when his father married Nancy A. Kingcade/Kincaid.

He was farmed out to Paschal P. Hudson:

Paschal P. HUDSON m Alaphair Allie HEARNE, d/o Thomas Hearne and Rachel Drewry, 31 August 1826 Wilson Co. TN, Thomas Smith MG, LS Donnell BM.

Nancy Kingcade/Kincaid brought four Kingcade/Kincaid children to this marriage:
Possible list of her children:
[1] Thomas Kingcade b: about 1828 Cannon Co TN [alive in 1868]
[?] Unknown Kingcade b: between 1828 & 1833 Cannon Co TN
[?] William J. Kingcade b: July 4, 1831 [?Cannon Co.?] TN [alive in 1868]
[4] James H. Kingcade b: 1833 Cannon Co TN [per his Obit telling he was the 4th of 8 children] [d: 1868] [James' Kingcade father died before 1833]
[5] Unknown child of step father [Bradbury] [b: after/about 1839]
[6] Unknown child of step father [Bradbury]
[7] Unknown child of step father [Bradbury]
[8] Unknown child of step father [Bradbury]
Perhaps one Bradbury child is deceased by 1847-48 because James says he promised to take care of his mother & three youngsters at the death of his step father Cullen Bradbury about 1847-48.

Only four of the eight living in 1868. per James H. Kingcade/Kincaid obit.

Nancy A. Kingcade/Kincaid-Bradbury migrates to Perry Co IL about 1850 with her son James, & Perhaps Thomas Kingcade & his wife Elizabeth Cummings-Kingcade.
We find those three in the subsequent census & Tax lists in Perry Co IL.

1852 Nancy Ann Bradberry marries Charles T. Duncan , Franklin County IL- which borders Perry County IL [note sp of Bradberry]

Any ideas or suggestions for my search for NANCY ANN KINGCADE/KINCAID-BRADBURY/BRADBERRY history is welcome....
