  • A J P Bradshaw was listed in the voter rolls for Jefferson County in 1891.  Since John was born in 1886, and his father was W H Brashaw, this J P was probably his unce, his father's brother.  Later information confirmed this.

    John Paulett Bradshaw was the son of W H Bradshaw and Cassandra Elizabeth Bradshaw. John married Mattie Katherine Gregory (1888-1962), daughter of Andrew Jackson Gregory and Letha Few on 24 December 1926 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. He died of a coronary occlusion on 15 Jul 1953.

    John's father has two burial plots, one in their original home of Jefferson County, Kansas, and the other where John and his mother moved and later died and were buried, in Jefferson County, Tennessee. The other memorial for the Kansas burial of John's father William Henry Bradshaw is #52996799.

    The Kansas memorial for W H tells us he had lived there most of his life and had taught school there the year before he died. The memorial for his Kansas burial provides the name of William Henry's wife, John's mother, as Elizabeth Cline, matching the burial under that name in Strawberry Plains Cemetery.

    The burial plot and marker for William (W H) in Tennessee is thus a memorial to complete the family group in the Strawberry Plains cemetery.
