BRADLEY, JAMES — My ggg-grandfather was James Bradley. He married Catherine Smithpeters in 1802. James died in 1859. My uncle said before Watauga Lake filled up for the first time, there was a log cabin out from what is now Midway Boat dock. This cabin was still standing when the lake covered it. This cabin and property at the time the lake covered it was deeded to a James P. Cable. From what I know, he came into possession from marrying into the Bradley family. James and Catherine Bradley are said to have lived in the cabin at one time. I am looking for photographs and information on this cabin. Surely someone took photographs of things before the lake covered them. I will swap genealogical information with anyone. Email me.

LINKOUS/LINKES/LINCUS/LINKUS — Gibson also had a daughter Minnie (I have found a birth certificate of a Charlotte in Indiana with a mother named Minnie but as far as I know Minnie was never married and had some mental problem so I am unsure if this is my Minnie Linkes but the age would be correct) Also the family says there was an Emily Linkes who married an A.D. Cordell but I can find no record of this. There was a problem with the Revenuers in the 20s and 30s and thus one of the name changes occurred. I would like to find related families. Many of the family are buried at Stanbery Cemetery on 321.There is also an Emiline Mathais buried here. I believe her to be the daughter of Mary Hicks Mathais, daughter of Hiram Hicks. Thanks Linda
