I am trying to find information on my Grandfathers Joseph Bradford siblings.

I know when they were all born, however I have no other information. Ideally i would like to know if they married or had children and if any of these children are still alive.

My nan is 83 and would live to get in contact with any relations of her Father.

His siblings were as follows:

MARY F BRADFORD

1901 England Census
about Mary F Bradford
Name: Mary F Bradford
Age: 6
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1895
Relation: Daughter
Father's name: John Bradford
Mother's name: Emily Bradford
Gender: Female
Where born: Sedgley, Staffordshire, England

Civil parish: Bilston
Ecclesiastical parish: Ettingsall Holy Trinity
County/Island: Staffordshire
Country: England

He also had a brother William Henry and another Sister Emily May Bradford.

Also any help tracing the family of an Aunt Katie Bradford would be greatly appreciated. I have reason to believe she was born in 188? and was a similar age to Joseph. She may also have lived in High Ercal. Her married name was Mansfield or something similar we think.

Hi Fairthorn

Why do you think that William H married Elsie Evans in 1924and not Lily Richards in 1926? I couldn't be sure which was the right marriage.

I have reason to believe that Katie Bradfords parents were called John and Emily and she had a number of siblings one of which was also called Emily.

1901 for Katie - she was the daughter of JOSEPH and Emily. This Joseph 1851 was the brother of John1868. So... I think that makes Katie Johns niece

Joseph 1851lived in the same road as his brother John 1868 in 1911

It says married 37 years but I can only find a marriage to an Emma not an Emily. Also they had 10 children 9 still living.
