Subject: Re: Bradford Cemetery 1732/3--Where is it?
Date: Mon, 15 May 2006 09:53:10 -0400
I just went to look for information on Bradford, and found this site:
It says Bradford was a town from 1672 to 1897. (Part of Bradford annexed
off to become Groveland, MA, in 1850.)
In 1897 Bradford became part of Haverhill, so, with the exception of the
part which annexed off to become Groveland, I would think the cemetery
might be in Haverhill. And, Bradford is known to be a specific part of
Haverhill. So you should be able to write to the Haverhill City Hall and
find out if they received the "vital records" from the 1730's !
Also, for others, don't forget that the Haverhill Public Library has a great
"Special Collections Room" on their top floor !
... I just went back to find more web pages about the former town of
Bradford, MA, and found this:
Here's a page which offers more description of the former town:
Here is the site for the City of Haverhill:
and web sites about it:
and for the Library:
Maybe their Reference Department can offer suggestions!
