Classification: Query
Here are UPDATES for Leaming Hawkins Bradley and wife Mary Simmons, based on my own research to answer the above 2008 query:

[1] There is a marriage record for Leaming Hawkins Bradley [recorded as Leyming Bradley] and Miss Mary Simons, both of Litchfield, on 19 Sep 1830 in the Town of Litchfield, Connecticut.

[2] Leaming's name WAS recorded as Leyming on his Litchfield, Connecticut, marriage record. I have a copy of the official record confirming that. The spelling Seyming is an erroneous transcription that shows up in

[3] One of their sons was Sherman Abernethy Bradley, born in Litchfield County Connecticut, in 1835, the date possibly 20 Sep 1835. The connection to his parents was made through his first and second marriage records, the 2nd in 1882 showing parents L. H. Bradley and Mary Simmons. Sherman died and is buried in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

[4] Based on 1862-1865 Milwaukee City Directories, another son appears to have been Galusha Bradley. Nothing else is known about him.

[5] Leaming Hawkins Bradley's mother has been confirmed as Hannah Twitchell, based on a series of genealogy publications and the fact that her brother Benjamin Starr Twitchell's will names her children as his nephews and nieces. In addition, her name "Hannah Our Mother" is on one side of the BRADLEY monument in Sunset Hill Cemetery, Guilford, Chenango County, New York, with a birth year 1792, matching the birth year of Hannah Twitchell, daughter of Benjamin Twitchell and Clarinna Hawkins. Sons Edward and Aaron are remembered on the other two sides of the BRADLEY monument. Hannah's mother's maiden name was Hawkins.

[6] Leaming Hawkins Bradley's father Horace Bradley likely died in Wisconsin about 1850. He is in the 1850 Census in Dodge County, Wisconsin, with sons John and Clark. He is not buried in Chenango County, New York, where wife Hannah is buried.

[6] Leaming Hawkins Bradley died in Milwaukee on 22 Dec 1871 according to in Lewisiana, or, The Lewis letter, Volumes 16-17, page 68. His second wife was Sabra Lewis.

Finally, Leaming's grandfather Aaron Bradley served two enlistments during the Revolutionary War, and is DAR Patriot Ancestor #:A013451. Five of Aaron's descendants have become DAR members.
