Thank you for your quick reply. I did find the Ira E. BRADLEY Jackson Co. OR on Find-A-Grave, but don't believe him to be the correct person. I do have his info though and will keep him in mind,...it appears that he was married to a Myra for a long time and had children with her.
Yes, we had Martha BRADLEY up to the 1930 census (living w/son Ralph COLESON), but did not have the 1940 (hadn't looked yet!), nor did I have her death/burial!
Thank you, I will look for an obituary for her to see if that has any clues.
Appreciate your interest in helping solve the mystery!
