Conducting research on the Joseph (Joe) B. Braddy, b. December 25, 1824 in Johnston County, NC. Joe was married to Fannie (?), b. 1851 in IN (possibly a second marriage for Fannie). The Joe Braddy family was included in the Abilene, TX area in 1880 Census and the Joe Braddy family and the John M. Simpson branch were located in Cooke County, TX in the 1910 Census. Fannie at age 55 and son Charley at age 23, b. 1883 last known residence in Ada- area (Ada-Indian Territory Census of 1906). Fannie Braddy is suspected to have been buried in Grady County, OK. Trying to obtain a death certificate for Fannie. 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 in Teton County, WY. Joe was recorded as a widower at the time of his death. Joe had the following children: Margaret L.

Maggie and John Simpson were married in Taylor County, Tx on August 28, 1881 and had the following children: (Hiram b. abt 1883 in TX; William A. b. abt 1887 in TX; Sarah E. b. abt 1889; Lillie Mae b. abt 1892 in TX; Florence E. b in 1891 in TX-d.1913 in Jackson, WY; and Dollie b. abt 1904 in OK}; Charlie Braddy b. 1883 in TX; Richard b. 1867 in TX; My grandfather William George Washington b. 10 Jul 1868 in Ft Worth, TX; Sallie A. Braddy b. 1874 in TX and married R. Alford 1 Mar 1893 in Graham, TX; George E. Braddy b. 1876 in TX.

Joe Braddy is believed to have had a stepson by the name of Andy Chapman who was killed in an Indian raid. "It was about 1864 that a Mr. Kellis and a boy named Andy Chapman, were charged by Indians about four miles east of the present town of Whitt, in Parker County. Andy Chapman was riding a pony that had been taught to pitch when touched behind the saddle. During these critical moments, the Chapman boy accidentally placed his hand on the pony's hip, and was thrown to the ground. Before young Chapman could again mount his steed the Indians were upon him, and in short time he was killed. Mr. Kellis successfully escaped. Andy Chapman was a stepson of Joe Braddy."

Any information on the Braddy, Simpson, Chapman or Alford family connections anywhere in the USA would be appreciated.
