Hi, Georgia! Thank you for posting this. I am a descendant of the John Bradley who died in 1778. I have been trying for years to learn more about him. Would it be possible for me to get in touch with Austin Sherman or anyone else that you may know who has researched him? Thanks!
I have written a book about the landmark Lake Tahoma Steak House in Carolina. It is a collection of memories of bear suppers, curb service at The Grill, a real service station that checked oil and tires for free, lodging in little rock cabins, breakfast or beer with neighbors, and trading guns, pottery or furniture with Pete Gibbs and his sons. Some of these events our children could never imagine. It was before the era of the interstate.
Pete’s legacy was the McDowell Childrens Ministry, and it was an honor to write his story. (William Brown Gibbs II, July 3, 1928-June 2, 2017)
