Hello,

I was doing some research on my family and found your name.

Robert Lyle Brady of New Mexico born in 1910 was my father. He passed away in 1996. His first marriage was really unknown to most in the family but I was told about it by his sister Alma when she was alive. I am the youngest of his children and am 33. There are 5 of us left.

Nancy T.Brady (me)
Almita Brady Nunnelee
Marilyn Brady Mulcahy
Kathy Brady Sparling
Steve Brady (passed away in 1987)

I'd love to hear from you.

Thank you
Nancy

Does your father happen to be related to Sheriff William Brady of Lincoln County, New Mexico......

I do know that he had several children including a son named Roberto (b. 1867 in Lincoln County) who married a Manuelita L. Torres........could that possibly be your father's grandparents/parents?

Let me know as I have all the information on the Brady's that my mom compiled for us before her death.

My father may be related in some way to the Sheriff although I don't know. It is more than likely given the date of Roberto's birth, that the Sheriff was related to Frank A Brady my grandfather and Robert's father in the Waltrus/Las Vegas New Mexico area.

What do you think>?

I'm sure you have already found this information, but thought I'd pass it along just in case:
Parents of Sheriff William Brady are:
John and Catherine Brady, William was born August 16, 1829 at Cavan, County Cavan, Ireland. He left Ireland for America in about 1851. He enlisted in the Army 7/11/1851 and left the Army in 10/1866. He was married to Maria Bonifacia Chaves Montoya on November 16, 1862. There is more information posted at the following site, including photos:
http://www.angelfire.com/mi2/billythekid/brady.html
Fair warning, it basically calls him corrupt, etc., but it is informative as far as the above info.
Also, please email me, as I have a Brady in my line that I can't find anything on, maybe you can help.
Thanks and hope the info helps you.

Hi My name is Katherine. I have information which I was given at a family reunion for the ancestors of William Brady. Your mother Josephine may have been there? I am also a great great grandaughter of William and Bonifacia Brady. My grandfather on my mother's side was the son of Catherine Brady and Frank Randolph. We may be able to help eachother.

Hello Brady Researchers,

There is another book, “Sheriff William Brady, Tragic Hero of The Lincoln County Wars” By Don Lavash. Mr Lavash worked as a historian in the New Mexico State Records Center and Archives.

The forward written by Robert M. Utley of Santa Fe in 1984 states

“Now comes Don Lavash to rescue Brady’s reputation and repainting the opposing faction in the darkest hues. No longer is Brady the pawn of Murphy but rather and honest, fearless public servant dedicated to law and order and to bringing civilization to this remote and troubled corner of the Territory. Lavash see Tunstall and Mc Sween as unscrupulous adventures intent on displacing Murphy and Dolan as the overlords of Lincoln Co. When the conflict intensified, Lavash charges, McSween put up the money to pay for Brady’s assasination.

This is heady stuff – radical revisionism, no less. It is sure to provoke debate among the fraternity of Lincoln County War students and Bill the Kid afficionados. But Lavash weaves a plausible plot, one that may well have unfolded in reality. Whether or not he has made his case, readers must judge for themselves. What is not debatable, however, is that this version is entitled to thoughtful consideration, for few authorities command the subject and its sources as Lavash”

Mr. Lavash acknowledges the family of William Brady in his Preface

“ I want to express my gratitude to Arcadio Brady, Bennett Leroy Brady, Billy Brady, Max Brady, Mabel (Brady) Neubauer and Bonnie (Brady) Tully, grandchildren and great grandchildren, who supplied vital information and photographs used in the book. Their contributions provided insights into the troubled community of Lincoln, New Mexico.”

Signed copies of this book are in the possession of Bonnie (Brady) Tully’s grandchildren.
