Dead end in Tennessee 1850

Posted: 1346863768000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Baxley, Bradley, Bradford
I've come to a dead end and I'm hoping someone can help me out. I've traced my Baxley line to a Thomas L. Baxley b. ~1827. The last record I have of him was the 1850 census when he lived in Hawkins County, TN. Here is some other info that I have and might help someone make a connection:
- Married Lucinda Bradley (b. 1832) in 1848 in Hawkins County, TN
- Had a daughter Jane b. ~1850
- Had a son Levi (b. DEC 16 1853 TN d. DEC 24 1924 Petersburg, IL); he married Gertrude Ellen Bradford (1860-1932) and they had 5 children and a foster daughter in the Petersburg Menard County, IL area.

I'd love to get any information you might have that can connect me to either Thomas or his wife's family. You can see my data on Thomas here (

Thanks for any help,
Nate Baxley
