Twice this thing has wiped out my long entry without notice:
9th, Alfred Owen Bradley, M.D., 1821-1871, wed Eliza Frances Lippitt. I believe his Oakdale Cemetery lot, Wilmington, adjoins James A. Bradley's lot, where I and wife Deborah D. Arnold, are to be interred. I descend Mrs. Lucy Anna Bradley Jewett's daughter, Mrs. Eliza Yonge Jewett Wooten/Wootten; second wife of Episcopal Rev. Edward Wooten/Wootten, Sgt., Lt., Capt., CSA; by their son, Edward Yonge Wootten.

Thanks for the reply. However, the Richard I am looking for died in 1827, and I am looking for a connection between Richard and a son named Isaac.
