Generation: 8

  1. 15.  Welthea Bradford Descendancy chart to this point (12.Samuel7, 9.Gamaliel6, 6.Hannah5, 4.John4, 3.John3, 2.Thomas2, 1.William1) was born 15 Nov 1757, Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts; died 8 Jun 1846.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Mar 1841, Poughkeepsie, Dutchess, New York

    Notes:

    If she died in Poughkeepsie as asserted in the Stephen Hopkins Mayflower Families through Five Generations book, she must have removed there very late in life, as the records of her pension application state that she personally appeared before the Plymouth probate judge, calling herself "a resident of Duxbury" (and "aged Eighty years") in Aug 1838.

    A typewritten letter from one Winfield Scott, Commissioner of the "Rev. & 1812 Wars Section" of the federal pension office, to Mary C. Fraprie of Beacon Street, Brookline, Massachusetts, dated 16 Oct 1928, narrates Isaac Drew's service in the Revolution in some detail, and ends with the note that Isaac Drew's wife Welthea Bradford -- who, the letter notes, he married "October 1, 1781", agreeing with the other genealogical sources cited here -- was "allowed pension on her application executed August 16, 1838, while a resident of Duxbury, Massachusetts, aged eighty years. She died June 8, 1846." Which is entirely different from the information given in the Hopkins Mayflower Families book.

    The Mayflower Families books use the much-complained-about "giant block of citations" model, in which it can be very difficult to determine which cited source or authority attaches to which stated fact. Failing a specific reason to believe that Welthea Bradford died in Poughkeepsie -- or in 1841, as asserted by Ruth Gardiner Hall -- we're inclined to believe Commissioner Scott's report that she died 8 June 1846, even if he was writing over eighty years later. For the simple reason that pension offices are strongly motivated to accurately know when their beneficiaries have died and no longer require further applications of public funds.

    Welthea married Isaac Drew 1 Oct 1781, Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Isaac (son of Samuel Drew and Faith Petersen) was born Jun 1748, Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts; died 3 Nov 1835, Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts; was buried , Mayflower Cemetery, Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts.
