Regarding the name BRADBERRY / BRADBURY
There are very few mentions of that name in my Wilson Co. books, so I’m going to send you all of them in case you can connect them with Charles at some point in the future.
1. There are NO Bradberrys listed in the “Index to Wilson Co. TN Wills, 1802-1861”.
2. The book “People of Wilson Co. TN”, has only one other mention of the name Bradberry:
In the Chapter titled, “County Court Minutes, 1802-1807”

Found Guilty, Recorded March Term 1805

James Bradberry was the bondsman for the marriage of James Bates and Sally Stephenson March 14, 1813
James Bradberry was married to Elizabeth Golston Aug 16, 1816 by the Rev. Abner Hill with Elisha Cole as bondsman
NOTE – the Rev. Abner Hill was my gggg grandfather. He was a Baptist minister who was associated with the Big Cedar Lick Baptist Church established in Wilson Co. in 1801. This church later changed its name to Mt. Olivet Baptist Church
Joshua Bradberry married Susan Brinson April 10, 1821 with Joseph Bradley as bondsman
Then there is no mention of the name Bradberry for 21 years until:
Manerva Bradberry married John B. Woodrum July 13, 1842
Mary E. Bradberry was married to S. A. White July 4, 1844 by Rev. William Barton (also associated with Big Cedar Lick Baptist Church)
James Bradberry married Margaret H. Johnson March 7, 1845
Elizabeth Bradberry married Jesse Rowland Feb 27, 1849
Hope some of this helps further your research.
