  • Notes 
    • Worked in the silk mill that his father was a member of till 21 when he captained a ship until 1773. He became a farmer in VA and was a Revolutionary Soldier under Captain Thomas Berry's Co. of the 8th Virginia Regiment. He enlisted 12/15/1776 and discharged 9/16/1777. He bought 230 acres in Hardy Co. VA (Now W. VA) along Patterson Creek and married Hannah in 1778. By 1807 he had moved his family to Coshocton Co. OH. Most of this comes from William Cupp Indiana Wesleyan Univ.

      About 1809, the family moved to the Coshocton County area in Ohio. There were no other white families within miles. The father died in 1830, at the age of 85.

      http://www.geocities.com/roudebush_english/Bradford.html has John Bradford's whole family group and history.

      John, Hannah, and six of their children: Peter (age 21), Elizabeth (age 16), William (age 13), Gasper (age 8), James (age 6), and Mary (age 3) traveled to Ohio in 1807, by covered wagon, settling in the "military district" of New Castle Township, in Coshocton Co., Ohio. Peter later returned to Virginia in early 1812, bringing a bride, Nancy Ann Davis, along with the families of Joseph Bradford and John Bradford, Jr., along with the Wood and Davis families, back to Ohio, in 1813. The families of Peter Bradford, John Bradford Jr. and the Davis families decided to travel to Muskingum County and settle. Also traveling to Muskingum County were the younger brothers, William and Gasper.

      In about 1815, John Bradford retired from farming and moved in John Jr. and family, bringing his wife, and younger children to his farm to live, leaving his farm to Joseph Bradford. John Jr. had settled just west of Bloomfield, Ohio, in Highland Township. In 1830, at the age of 85, John Bradford died in Highland Township, Ohio, and was buried in Bethel United Methodist Cemetery. Hannah died in 1841 in Highland Twp, Muskingum, Ohio, and was also buried there.
