      believe Stephen is a brother to my ancestor Daniel MacKloud Bradham who lived next door to him in 1850. Stephen and Daniel lived in Onslow County, NC. The best information I have gotten by combining census records and family stories (check me on this) is that there was a Henry Bradham living in Onslow County in the lower Richlands area. This was in the 1770s. Then Stephen Bradham and according to some posts his wife Easter Hawkins were living in Onslow County in 1806. John Bradham was in the 1800 census in Onslow County. Much of the government and legal business at the time was done in Duplin County. Stephen had possibly 3 sons, Jacob Daniel, Stephen, and Ezey/Ezekiel Bradham. I believe Ezekiel is likely Stephen Sr's son because John had no sons in any census record of him and Ezekiel is about the same age range as Jacob Daniel. And I believe that there was also a son named Stephen.

      This is why:

      File contributed for use in USGenWeb Archives by
      Sloan Spence Mason


      To His Excellency John M. MOREHEAD, Governor of the State of North Carolina.

      Your memoralists citizens of the Counties of Duplin and Onslow respectfully represent
      to your Excellency, that at the Term of the Superior Court of Law held for the County
      of Duplin on the fourth Monday in March last past, John FOUNTAIN with ten other persons
      were charged by indictment for a Riot committee in the County of Duplin, and upon the
      submission of all the Defendants they were sentenced to imprisonment in the Jail of that
      County for the term of six months. Your memorialists show to your Excellency that said
      Defendants were committed to the Jail, on conformation with the Judgment of the Court
      and remained in Custody until about the 24th of the past month, when all the other
      prisoners except the said John FOUNTAIN made their escape-that the said John FOUNTAIN
      refused to do so, although the Jail was open and he was entirely at liberty to have
      escaped with his fellow prisoners. Your memorialists further represent to you Excellency
      that from the facts of the case as developed on the trial it appeared that the said John
      FOUNTAIN was less criminal than any of his co-defendants, that he was not present, nor
      did he in any manner take part in the --- act which constituted the riot, and that it
      tackmisally? Quietly it resulted subtly from the fact that he came to the place where
      the riot occurred in company with his co defendants-Your memorialist represent further
      to your Excellency that the said John FOUNTAIN is a very aged man (being now between
      seventy and eighty years of age) that he has ever sustained a most exemplary character
      both as a citizen and a Christian.

      Your Memorialist therefore represent to your Excellency that from the peculiar
      circumstances of the case they consider that it furnished a proper case for the
      exercises of the pardoning power so wisely by our Constitution rested? In your
      Excellency; and believing that your Excellency will agree with your memorialists in
      their view of the case, they pray that your Excellency will pardon the said John
      FOUNTAIN for the offence under consideration for which he has been sentenced to
      imprisonment for so long a term, and it so likely a period of the year and your
      memorialists as in duty bound will ---- pray.

      State of North Carolina
      Duplin County
      April, 1842

      To The Honorable John M. MOREHEAD, Esquire, Governor-
      We the undersigned citizens of the counties of Duplin and Onslow and others,
      respectfully represent that at the present Spring Term 1842, of the Superior Court
      of Law for the County of Duplin, John FOUNTAIN, Brinson SPIVEY, Joab FOUNTAIN, Jr.;
      John R. FOUNTAIN, Hezekiah FOUNTAIN, Fields BRINSON, Brantly BRINSON, Isaac BRINSON,
      Lewis FUTRELL, Andrew BRYAN and Wright HORNE upon an indictment for a Riot without
      being arrested came into Court and had their supinah recorded-whereupon the Court
      sentenced them to an imprisonment for six calendar months. Your Petitioners further
      represent to your Excellency that the fact of the case as given in evidence by the
      witnesses were substantially these-that in the month of November 1840, there were
      three Negro slaves in the neighborhood of these defendants who had committed many
      acts of great outrage against these defendants, that they were harbored by certain
      white persons in that neighborhood that they went armed with guns that they had
      killed the stock of these defendants on some occasion in their own plantations and
      carried them off, that they had killed John E. FOUNTAIN the son of John FOUNTAIN one
      of these defendants having shot him down in the woods that they had made threats
      against these defendants in case they should ever get out of the jail where they were
      imprisoned having been caught.

      Further that previously to their imprisonment from their many outrages these defendants
      their families and the whole neighborhood were held in constant alarm-to such an extent
      that they were actually afraid to leave their houses after night.

      That after these Negroes were caught and put in Duplin Jail one of them made his escape
      and declared that when one of these defendants and his wife were walking along the road
      that he LEWIS ----- his gun at him several times. That it was further in evidence that
      the jail of Duplin was notoriously insecure, insufficient securely to confine prisoners.
      That soon after LEWIS made his escape from jail these defendants went to Kenansville,
      Duplin Court House to enquire into the situation of the jail and to see whether the
      Negroes were safe having heard that one had escaped and that the jail was insecure.
      That when these defendants came they expressly declared that they had no wish to violate
      the law that they came to see if the jail was safe and to take the Negroes to another
      jail if this was not a sufficient jail to keep them until the next Court. That they
      applied to the Magistrates of Duplin County for the purpose of getting relief and
      authority to take them to another jail-supposing they had authority to do so-that the
      magistrates by removing the Negroes. That these defendants made known to the Magistrates
      that threats had been made by these Negroes in case of their escape and that their lives
      were in danger if these Negroes ever supposed again to go at large. That these defendants
      finding they could get no penance that these Negroes would be kept safely, broke open he
      jail and took the Negroes out.

      The Indictment against them charged them with "unlawfully riotously and sinuously
      breaking and entering the jail and taking there from the two Negroes BALAANI & HOWARD.
      Your Petitioners represent to your Excellency that it was satisfactorily established
      that these Defendants from this punishment or if your Excellency should not deem it
      proper to enter entire relief to them that your Excellency will relieve them from a
      portion of this Term of imprisonment.

      His Excellency J. W. MOREHEAD, Esqr.

      Dear Sir,

      I hope you will not think me presumptuous if I again importune you in behalf of
      offender. I am aware it is not an enviable occupation and but for the peculiar
      circumstances connected with the transaction, I First, the account of the affair
      had been misrepresented to present at the time of the trespass, & all being indicted
      it was impossible for the transaction to appear as it really was; and thirdly, there
      were many mitigating circumstances, that amounts almost, if not quite to justification-
      At out last Superior Court, John FOUNTAIN, Joab FOUNTAIN, John R. FOUNTAIN, Brinson
      SHIVARS, Fields BRINSON, Hezekiah FOUNTAIN, Brantly BRINSON, Isaac BRINSON, Lewis
      FUTREL, Andrew BRYAN & Wright HORN stood charged with riotously breaking the Jail of
      the County, and without any arrest from the Sheriff, came into Court submitted to the
      charge; whereupon the Judge sentenced them to six months imprisonment & the Costs-I
      am ready to admit that these men were guilty of a most violent outrage, yet doubtless
      the report has been exaggerated to their prejudice; and tho they were unable to satisfy
      the Court of the whole of the circumstances, yet the whole county agree if such conduct
      was ever admissible, it was in this particular case-

      Hear those circumstances-In the Spring of 1840, HOWARD, BAALAM & LEWIS, Negro slaves,
      ran away and took up quarters in the neighborhood of those Defendants; it was
      universally believed they were countenanced, yes, harbored by two white men Dan'l. &
      Stephen BRADHAM living in that vicinity; (and such belief yet remains) they commenced
      depredating upon these defendants & others, and continued their operations for eight
      months. In this time their conduct to the Defendants was such, that no white Patriot
      could tolerate; they killed three Beeves, more than a dozen sheep, and several hogs-
      They on one occasion went to the yard of A. BRYAN the Def't. took a hog from his pen,
      shot his dog & threatened to shoot him if he showed any resistance; on another occasion
      they went to the feeding place of another of the Defendants, killed a hog, before his
      face & threatened to kill him if he even told of it; on another occasion they went to
      another of the Defendants (who had spoken against them) cut his mill dam & broke the
      stones publicly, with a threat of greater violence if they heard from him again; on
      another occasion they attempted to shoot five of these Defendants who were shucking
      corn in the night & this together with their other conduct produced general alarm
      throughout the whole region; consequently a company was raised to take them, who had
      not proceeded far before Joab FOUNTAIN was fired on, several shot passing through his
      hat & coat collar, and immediately after, John E. FOUNTAIN (son of John FOUNTAIN the
      Def't) was shot dead by the Negroes who made their escape. A few days after, Jezekiah
      HOUNTAIN was snap'd, at by said Negroes who swore they would destroy every man who had
      been engaged in the pursuit; & afterwards Joab FOUNTAIN was fired on, several shot
      passing through his clothes, though but one giving much wound. This caused a second
      pursuit, when the Negroes were taken and carried to Jail-A few days after their
      confinement, LEWIS broke the Jail & made his escape (and here let me say that the Jail
      was insufficient to hold any body) upon hearing which these Defendants came to the
      Court House presented their difficulties to the acting Sheriff, also called on three
      Magistrates & sought for protection; no protection being afforded, they being much
      excited (and I must add, encouraged by the company) committed the trespass alluded to,
      tho let it be distinctly understood that John FOUNTAIN did not aid (only by his presence)
      in the commission of the crime, the evidence was "that he advised them not to use any
      violence" and was not nearer than thirty yards when the Jail was broken. I am well
      acquainted with John FOUNTAIN, & have ever considered him a pious & upright man, now
      old of seventy years of age; I have some acquaintance with the other Defendants, they
      have sustained the character of good & peaceable citizens, & none of them has ever been
      indicted before for any breach of the Peace-They are all poor men & if they have to
      remain in prison till the Fall, the whole of all their property will be insufficient to
      pay their attorneys, Jail fees, & the costs of the Indictment. They all have families &
      are dependant upon the daily labor of these Defendants for their support-

      Considering all the circumstances I respectfully & with great deference suggest to your
      Excellency the propriety of granting them a discharge from imprisonment in part or intoto?
      As to your Excellency may seem right; or (should you think it a case not authorizing
      your absolute interference) to suspend the imprisonment till the crop season has passed
      over, upon their giving surety for their appearance - But should you conclude the
      Defendants are not all entitled to your clemency absolutely & immediately, suffer me to
      bring to the expected notice of your Excellency John FOUNTAIN, the man who had his only
      son killed by the Negroes and after that, together wit the other injuries he has suffered,
      he offered no violence to the Laws & even advised the others to adopt his course, he only
      was seen in company of the other Defendants during the day, on several occasions.
      Touching the sentiment of the people, I believe there is but one opinion concerning
      these Defendants and that is, that they done only what every spirited man would do, tho
      that nineteen twentieths of every white man & woman in this County wishes your
      interference in their behalf & if you are satisfied of the circumstances, you have
      nothing to fear from complying with their wishes. -

      I intended seeing you in person on this subject, and also intended to be with you on
      the 4th but the situation of my Family forbade it; I hope the next Papers will
      communicate the proceedings of the convention, and will be able to give us some
      cheering news.

      Hoping for the best.

      I am sir your Obed't. Servant, Jese PEARSALL

      His Excellency John M. MOREHEAD, Esqr., Raleigh, N.C.

      This happened in 1842 and I think since Daniel MacKloud Bradham was only 11, this document refered to Jacob Daniel Bradham and a brother Stephen.

      It is likely that this bunch of events caused resentment toward the Bradham family.

      Jacob Daniel Bradham married Nellie Waller and had children: Stephen P (Jacob Brock) b 11 Feb 1813 Onslow Co, Daniel MacKloud (my ancestor)b 4 Sep 1829, Mary b 1819 (this could be Mary Cottle who married a Daniel Bradham in 1845, not sure which one), and Emily b 1820 Duplin Co, NC. In 1830 Jacob Daniel Bradham had no wife, so I believe Nellie died before then. In 1840 he had another wife and the following kids: David b 1837, Julia b 1838, Margaret b 1839, and Linda or Linder b 1842. They were in Onslow County, NC in 1850. I found Stephen's son George living in Duplin County in 1860. Then the family disappears until they show up as the Brock family in Texas in 1880. My understanding is that the Brocks lived in Cass & Coryell Counties of Texas. Daniel MacKloud Bradham went to Newton County, MS and married Mary Ann Cooper. HE died during the Civil War. She was the daughter of Judge Hamiliton Cooper and sister to Hamilton Cooper for which Cooper, Texas is named. They were related to Alexander Hamilton though not directly. Daniel MacKloud Bradham died during the Civil War and was buried in New Orleans. Mary Cooper remarried and the family eventually ended up in Texas. Walter Lewellyn, William Wansley (my ancestor), Virginia Ann (Miles) and Eugene Downing Bradham all ended up in Navarro, Hill, Rusk, and Shelby Counties, Texas with descent spreading to Washington, Panola, Jefferson, and Coleman Counties of Texas.
