    There are two different grave memorials in different states with the same dates of birth and death.  The other burial is in Kansas, and has the name of W H's wife as Elizabeth Cline, matching a grave in the Strawberry Plains Cemetery.  There is no matching grave for Elizabeth Cline in the Kansas cemetery.

    The Kansas grave has his full name as William Henry Bradshaw.  It is in a group of Bradshaws, and the obituary says he was resident there and had taught in the school the previous year.  So this must be the actual place of death.  The grave in Tennessee is likely a memorial.  His wife and son must have moved to Tennessee after William's death.  But his son John was born in Tennessee in 1886, two years after their marriage.

    Some genealogies report that William married Cassandra Elizabeth Cline in Tennessee on 10 March 1884.  This makes sense, because of multiple documentation of the birth of their son John P Bradshaw in Jefferson City, Jefferson County, Tennessee.  But it makes us wonder what the obituary meant about William living most of his life in Jefferson County, Kansas, near Winchester, and teaching school there and serving as superintendent of schools.  With his teaching there the year before he died, this sounds pretty permanent.  It sounds like at least the last 3 years (2 as superintendent and one as teacher at Center) he was definitely resident in the Winchester, Kansas area.

    Winchester Herald, August 22, 1890
    "DIED - Wm. Bradshaw, August 19, 1890, at his home northwest of Winchester. He was for two years county superintendent of Leavenworth county, and taught the Center school last year. Mr. Bradshaw has long been a resident of this county, and is well-known in this vicinity. After three weeks of suffering with inflammation of the bowels, he died, leaving a wife and two children to mourn their loss. The remains were interred in the Lamar cemetery on Crooked Creek, which is near his old home."
