Oswald was born on July 6, 1883, in Ingersoll, Ontario. He grew up in a 13-room stone country house, Bleak House, named after a fictional property that Charles Dickens invented. For many of his adult years, he worked in his family's dairy there. His wife, Ruby, who he married in 1906, also helped at the dairy. For many years, some 200 pounds of butter a week and cream were produced there. Ruby later recalled that she moved 18 times with her family. The most memorable was a 1927 journey in a Star touring car from Canada to Brownsville, Texas. The party, with 2 parents and 7 children, took 14 days going and 12 coming back. In between, they discovered that the Texas land would not irrigate well enough to grow grapefruit, as planned, so they returned in 6 weeks, to their farm in Norwich, Ontario. The next year, Oswald became one of the farm overseers at Wildwood Farms, William E. Scripps' country estate near Lake Orion, Michigan. The family weathered the worst of the Depression years, until 1933, there. There were famous visitors, including major league baseball players and Amelia Earhart, who flew an experimental glider . The three Bodwell sons struggled in ropes and harness to propel her glider into the air to start her flight over the farm. Oswald's daughter, Margaret Lila Bodwell Armstrong, recalled being taught in the estate school with the Scripps children. She remembered Oswald encouraging family singing and lengthy storytelling, in the Celtic tradition. One summer there Oswald endured quarantine for a month to escape an epidemic of spinal meningitis. In 1977, during a reunion at son Graham Bodwell's farm in Metamora, Michigan, family members revisited the estate. The house they'd lived in was gone, but a row of other worker's houses had been nicely maintained as an Antique Village. The Scripps mansion had become a health facility. Oswald and Ruby celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary in 1964 with a dinner and an interview for the local newspaper. Oswald died on May 5, 1966, in Norwich, Ontario. Biography written by Mary Jo Armstrong, Oswald's granddaughter.spouse: Smith, Ruby Belle (1884 - )

Valerie Brock, 10190 E. St. Rd. 8, Knox, IN 465334 e-mail (email@example.com) is the gr/dau of Epp Joseph and Susie Bradley. She was checking our Wireman book and found that we had Susie's mother listed as Catherine "Katie" Wireman married to Arzanus Bradley, son of Buck. She writes that she always thought Susie's father was James Bradley and it would appear that she is correct.spouse: Howard, Elizabeth (1814 - 1897)
The 1900 Knott Co. census has James Bradley b. 1870, wife Katie b. 1873 with children: Liberty Bradley b. 1891, Margaret Bradley b. 1892, Susannah Bradley b. 1893, Preston Bradley b. 1896, and Landen Bradley b. 1896. The 1910 Knott Co. census has Anderson Bradley at age 46 with wife Katie (her 2nd marriage). She was the mother of 12 children and 8 were living. In the household were Selden age 7, George Jr. age 3 and Suel age 7/12. Anderson and Katie had been married 9 years. I don't know James Bradley's parents.
The 1900 Breathitt Co. census lists James Buck Bradley b. 1859. He married in 1880 to Martha Manns b. 1865 (his 2nd wife). He was married first to Malinda Howard. The children were Arzanus Bradley b. 1878, Solomon Bradley b. 1885, Chester Bradley b. 1893, and Charlie Bradley b. 1900.
The above James Buchanon Bradley was the son of James Bradley b. 1812 and Elizabeth Howard b. 1814 and the above James was the son of George Bradley and Elizabeth Briggs.

Ms. Betty Bloomer, 669 Odle Creek Rd., W. Portsmouth, OH 45663 needs proof from a Bible record or other source for the mother of Mary "Polly" Brenton who married John Prater at Bethel, Nicholas Co. KY "at the home of her parents." This marriage took place 28 Nov 1806.spouse: Prater, John (1785 - 1856)
If the marriage record told the names of her parents that document may still be found in that county. Ms. Bloomer went on to say MaryŪs parents were Robert (Henry?) Brenton and Elizabeth Steele who were married in Washington Co. PA 10 Apr 1781. She also asked for a death record showing Mary Brenton died 2 Mar 1866. The answer to this is we do not. Her tombstone reads born 1783 d. 1866 or thatŪs what I copied in 1978. -- Magoffin County Historical Society
