There are a number of books, Mayflower Families in Progress that are published by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. They cover at least four generations, so the William Bradford book would indicate whether the William Bradford born 1739 and who died 1794 is a descendant.

A genealogical department of a good sized library would likely have the answer to what you are looking for.
