I am looking for my Great Grand Father John C Bradford, he married in Rutherford, NC to Amanda Smith. He had a son Richard Bradford which is my great grandfather, John, and William were his brothers. I know he died in 1861 or 1862 he was very young. I am not sure if he was from TN or NC or AL. My father was James M. Bradford his father Burl Bradford from AL, his father was Richard and his father was John. I have been searching now for 10+ years with no success. I have called Rutherford, NC, and the Archives. If anyone has any information I would appreciate it.

I am hoping this information will be helpful. I found several marriage records for Amanda Smith to JC Bradford. The most helpful one was dated 5 Nov 1853 in McDowell Co, NC.

I found for the 1850 Census for McDowell Co, NC: William Smith 1797; Cuffie Smith 1790; John Smith 1800; James Smith 1801; various wives + children; Amanda Smith 1830 There are 44 record for Smith in McDowell Co. for 1850.

I found this Amanda in the household of William Long
45 NC; Mary Long 80 NC; Amanda Smith 20 NC

Maybe Amada's mother was a Long or she might be a servant.
