Notes

    That is possible, since the marriage is reported to have occurred inLaurens County.  I found what appears to be William Bradford in the1830 census.  William Bradford should be 29 in 1830.  So this entryseems to match him.

    1830 Federal Census, Spartanburg County, South Carolina, page 285
    Bradford Strange  1 male under 5 years, 1 male 20-30, 1 female 20-30

    In 1840, the following entry for Bradford Strange in 1840 seems tomatch William Bradford, who should be 39 in 1840.   We find him livingnear his father Amos,
    Now in Laurens District (County).

    1840 Federal Census, Laurens District, South Carolina, page 285
    Bradford Strange  1 male under 5 years, 2 male 5-10, 1 male 10-15, 1male 30-40
    1 female under 5 years, 1 female 20-30 [same age range as in 1830]

    His brother (Little) Berry Strange is also a few houses away also,enumerated on the same page.  There is also a David Strange living acouple of houses from Bradford.

    1840 Federal Census, Laurens District, South Carolina, page 285
    Berry Strange  2 male under 5 years, 2 male 5-10, 2 male 10-15, 1 male30-40
    1 female under 5 years, 1 female 30-40

    1840 Federal Census, Laurens District, South Carolina, page 285
    David Strange  1 male under 5 years, 1 male 15-20, 1 female 15-20
