Biography: John Bradner was born in 1765 and died in June 1814 in Oswego, NY.  John married Susan(nah) Bottom around 1795 in Goshen, Orange, NY. 

 

            Taken from Frank Bradner’s Genealogy web pages:

This is the John Bradner who appeared to be the John Bradner of Pittsylvania, VA. It has been determined that the John Bradner, son of Colville Bradner Sr. did NOT leave NY State. Edition #2 of the Bradner Genealogy is therefore 'IN ERROR" in this respect. The origin of the John Bradner of Pittsylvania is UNKNOWN as of this wrtiting.

REFERENCES:
1) LDS film of deeds - Jan 26, 1807 - John Bradner sells land in Gorham, NY to Bascom Whitney for $1500.
2) Surrogate Court Records for Ontario, NY dated June 14, 1814 - Susan Bradner, widow of John Bradner sets off her rights of dower to land sold to Bascom Whitney in #1 above.   The origin of this land unclear, BUT it may have originally belonged to Moses Bradner, cousin to the John Bradner above, and thus sold to John Bradner. Per Lillian Young (Bradner descendant of Moses Bradner), Moses sold all or part of his land in the southern part of Ontario Co (Gorham probably) and moved further north to Canandaigua, Ontario Co., NY.
3) 1813 - John Bradner grants land to Richard Wells - Ontario Co., NY

 

Also:

Susan Bradner, now a widow appears in the 1820 Oswego Co. census. She does NOT appear in the 1830 NY census, and has either died or remarried.  As further proof of the marriage of John Bradner and Susan Bottom, we turn to the following: REF: 'Landmarks of Oswego Co., NY', ed. by John C. Churchill, LLD, Syracuse NY. 1895. Part III. Family sketches.
PP 307, 308; Bradner, Frank J ---- the ancestry of the subject is Scotch and his grandfather on the paternal side was John Bradner, who was born near NY City and married Susan Bottom, a native of Poughkeepsie, NY. The grandfather on the maternal side was Joseph Spaids, who married Clarissa Jones.
