This is my little Lexie, a chihuahua mix who is tiny but so sweet. Here she is trying to sleep under my pillows. She is a burrower. Makes a great watch dog because she has a fierce bark.

Mr. Bradley,

My name is Gary Carden and I am doing research on the Cowee Tunnel disaster in which 19 chain gang convicts drowned in 1882.

I see where you have published a list of names for the convicts that were participating in the Swannanoa Tunnel project.  Is it  possible to obtain a list of the convicts who were engaged in the Cowee Tunnel construction?

Hi Mr. Bradley,
I have come across your name before in some of my genealogy research, it was in some information regarding the Justice family of Rutherford County. I am wondering if
perhaps we are related somehow? My gggrandmother was Sarah Wallace Justice on
my maternal side. My grandmother was Velma Cordelia Adair, her mother's name was Nannney. I would love to hear from you if you have any family information.
Thank you in advance, Linda Hoisington - Grosse Pointe, Michigan

Thank you for your gracious comment on my WNC comments..Are you related to the famous WW2 General? I think my Dad said our Miller, Keener? relatives were related to Gen Omar Bradley, but I did not check out his information.
Interesting about Jonathan Bradley possibly being a victim of the Shelton Laurel Massacre.
My Dad's first cousin Roger Messer was married to a Cole lady. I noticed That Nelson Morgan Bradley was married to Adinah Freeman, and I think she was the daughter of Sallie Buckner,and Robinson Freeman and I noticed that Adinah lived at Nimrod Buckner's home during one of the censuses along with my Great Grandmother Nancy Goldmith. (Then Fisher) They actually have Adinah listed as Adinah Fisher but I do not think she was Nancy's child..
