I was conducting some research for my next book and ran across the following newspaper article from the December 30, 1729 – January 6, 1730, edition of The Pennsylvania Gazette, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This woman had an amazingly long life considering the era in which she was living.
Philadelphia, Jan. 6,
Yesterday was interred here the Body of Mary Bradway, formerly a noted Midwife. She was born on New Year’s Day, 1629-30, and died on the second of January, 1729-30; aged just One Hundred Years and a Day. Her Constitution wore well to the last, and she could see to read without Spectacles a few Months since.
Filled with drama, suspense, humor, and romance, DISCORDANCE continues the family saga from the Tapestry of Love series with the children of Mary Dixon who married Thomas Cottingham.
Inspired by true events and the Cottingham family that resided in 17th century Somerset, Maryland, and Delaware, colonial America comes alive with pirate attacks, religious discord, and governmental disagreements in the pre-Revolutionary War days of America.
