  • Notes 
    • From FAG:

      Lorin Abernethy was one of 12 children of Dr. William Abernethy and Honor (Catlin) Abernethy of Harwinton. Her Abernethy lineage traces to William Abernethy who came from Scotland to Connecticut by 1668.

      She married Aaron Bradley, a Revolutionary War veteran, on 8 July 1787. They lived in Bantam on the west side of the Town of Litchfield and had four children: Horace Bradley, Leaming Bradley, Mary Ann Bradley and Mary Talmadge Bradley.

      They sent their daughter Maria Tallmadge Bradley to Sarah Pierce's Female Academy in 1819 while daughter Mary Ann likely attended in 1806.

      On January 20, 1844, the Connecticut Herald of New Haven carried a Mortuary Notice for Mrs. Lorrin Bradley, widow of the late Capt. Aaron Bradley. She died 4th instant, ie, in January, aged 75. Her internment at the Bantam Burying Ground is in Litchfield and Morris Inscriptions.

      Her given name Lorin is also recorded at times as Lorrin, Lorrain, Lorraine and, in a transcription error, Lois.
