The following is the genealogy of Hiram Bradford: (first page)

Transcribed by Inez Bradford, wife of a Miles H. Bradford, a descendant of Hiram. This Miles H. Bradford died in 1976 and Inez died in 1986. Inez made the copy Jan. 1944, 110 years after the original was written.

Thomas' son, also named Thomas, was somehow left out of the list of sons at the bottom of the page.

Inez Bradford transcription (first page)
This is a copy of a family record in the handwriting of Hiram Bradford, who died on his estate about four miles west of Brownsville, Tennessee on August 27, 1892.
Ages

My father, Benjamin Bradford, was born in North Carolina (perhaps Wake County), I suppose about the year 1763. My mother, Polly Bradford, was also born in North Carolina (perhaps in the same county) about the year 1764.

Green Hill Bradford, son of Benjamin and Polly Bradford, was born in North Carolina, December 22, 1783.

Alsey High Bradford, son of Benj. and Polly Bradford, was born in Knox County, North Carolina, Dec. 14th, 1785.

Nancy Bradford, daughter of Benj. and Polly Bradford, was born November the 8th., 1788.

Hiram Bradford, son of Benj. and Polly Bradford, was born in Montgomery County, North Carolina, Jan. 2nd., 1797.

Tobitha Bradford, daughter of Benj. and Polly Bradford, was born in Montgomery County, North Carolina, Oct. 16th., 1799.

Leonora Bradford, daughter of Benj. and Polly Bradford, was born in Montgomery County, North Carolina, June 23rd., 1802

Miles Harper Bradford, son of Benj. and Polly Bradford, was born in Stewart County, Tennessee, May 10th., 1809.

I have no record of the age of my father and mother, but having always understood that he was one year older than my mother, and that he was about 20 years of age when my brother Green, was born, I therefore suppose that they were born as above indicated in the year 1763 and 1764.

My sister Nancy I never saw, she having died very young.

GENEALOGY

I know but very little about the genealogy of my people, having been very negligent in that particular.

My grandfather Bradford's name was Thomas, who resided in North Carolina, He had four sons; David, Ephraim, Philip, or Philemon, (we called him Uncle Phil), and my father, Benjamin.

Information furnished by Joyce Bradford, wife of George Bradford, son of Willie, son of Benjamin, son of David, son of Green Hill

AS TOLD BY HIRAM: "Major Green H. Bradford was of a daring spirit and fond of adventure, not satisfied with confronting the Indians who were very savage, around about us, in those days--he prevailed on my father to let him go South with a friend soon after settling on Cumberland, and was absent about seven years in what was in those times parts almost unknown, then West Florida, now State of Lousiana.

He returned -- - -(four words illegible), with a wife and child, having married Betsey Robinson on (parrish illegible), about 30 miles of Madison on Lake Penchartrain. He made frequent trading trips afterwards to that region of country and afterward, in company with myself, finally moved there, lived in the Parish of East Feliciana, finally settled in St. Mollena and died there about the year 1840. His sons were Thomas Benjamin, who died when nearly grown. Also, James, Hiram and David. His daughters were Matilda, Roena and Carolina. These are all I know of. His widow married and went to Red River, and I suppose the children followed."
