Using a free-wheeling explanation, this is my first attempt to comply with requested detail as to "Confirmed DNA" for me and my father to this Hugh Brady through son Ebenezer: yDNA testing for my father (Allen Brady) and 3 other known descendants of Hugh Brady, Pioneer (1 of Hugh II, 1 of Capt John, AND 1 of James -- Brady-2597 at Wikitree) lines up all 4 to Hugh Brady, Pioneer (FamilyTreeDNA -- see Brady yDNA Project) with a shared value of 11 at DYS439.

Additionally, via atDNA, both my father, his brother, and I have at least 48 confirmed atDNA matches within the Ebenezer Brady + Jane Irwin umbrella -- ranging from 2nd cousins to 5th+ cousins, all of whom match at the expected cM range based on sound genealogical research. ~Elizabeth Brady (eb 12/11/18) 23:15, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

Biography

Hugh and Hannah Brady were the parents of nine children, seven sons and two daughters. A monument was erected in 1926 by an association of Brady Family to honor the family. It lists the children in the following order: John, Joseph, Samuel, Hugh, Ebenezer, William, James, Mary, and Margaret. On the other side of the monument is inscribed: "Hugh Brady - Hannah Brady - Pioneers". This memorial is in the lower cemetery across the street from the Middle Spring Presbyterian Church, a short distance from Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.

It is assumed Hugh married Hannah (McCormick?) abt. 1730.


Notes for Hugh Brady: REFN: 1156 He immigrated from Ireland and made his home in Cumberland County in about 1732.

-- "No family of pioneers was more conspicuous in the early history and settlement of the country than the Bradys."

The following information regarding the Old Brady Log Homestead was written and researched by Donna Cuillard of Simi Valley, California.

The Old Brady Log Homestead

When Richard Brady, founder of the Brady Family Heritage Association, was put in touch with Dick & Jeane Eschenmann (1999), the Eschenmanns took Dick Brady and showed him the location of the homestead. The house appeared to be a good sized two-story house with wood siding and a metal roof. Dick recruited a newly-discovered cousin with money, Elizabeth Brady Lurie, to purchase the place. Elizabeth hired a forensic architect to research the original structure and various additions. Once he removed the siding he discovered that the original original Brady log house was a small one-and-a-half story log cabin, and the two-story house had been built around the original log home. Brady house was a small one-and-a-half story log cabin. After the Bradys sold the place in 1794 (after the death of Hugh Brady's grandson, Hugh Brady son of Joseph Brady & Mary Carnahan), the new owners (Moses Hemphill purchased the property for his son James Hemphill and his family). James and his new bride, Cynthia Jack, moved a two-story log house next to the Brady cabin, joined them together and built the Brady cabin up to a full two floors.

Now (2003) the two buildings have been separated and each has been restored to what they likely looked like when first built. The Brady cabin was dismantled, each log and piece numbered and cataloged, the foundation rebuilt and the cabin was then rebuilt using the original logs. The contractor even did the work using no power tools, only hand tools such would have been available in the 1700's. He hand made the roof shakes with an axe and adze. The original cabin was approximately 18’ x 18’. The cabin consists of a main floor and a sleeping loft. They would have brought livestock inside during the harsh winter months.

On The Death Date of Hugh Brady, Pioneer: I did find some further information on narrowing down the death date for Hugh Brady, Pioneer. There are lots of INCORRECT death dates for him floating around on the internet. The most commonly-accepted (but incorrect) date is the one for May 1787. I have a copy of the Will for Hugh Brady II, proved 26 May 1787. In that Will he does not designate himself as anything other than "Hugh Brady" and many people have assumed over the years it is the older Hugh Brady.

However, the Will mentions the following that tells us it is Hugh Brady II:

Wife (mentioned several times, but not named):

Sons: James, John, Samuel (not yet 21 yrs of age), Joseph (not yet 21 yrs of age), Extract #1: "my two sons James and John keeping and supporting their Mother during her natural life if my widow or complying the rules laid down if she should marry and likewise to raise my two sons Samuel and Joseph until they come of age or until they are fit for a trade which I leave at the discretion of my executors, when they should be bound to a trade or not and to learn them or send them to school such time as may be necessary to learn to read and write at the discretion of my executors and when they, my two sons, comes to the years of twenty one, vix. Samuel and Joseph.

Extract #2: "likewise I alow James and John to bring up, support, learn to read in the Bible, and Cloth in decent wearing aparel, and when they come to the years of eighteen I allow each of my four daughters, Mary, Hannah, Rebeccah and Jean over and above their bringing up and schooling and clothing each to receive five pounds." Notes: 1. The children listed above would be too young to be those of Hugh Brady, Pioneer. 2. There are 4 daughters listed and we know that Hugh Brady, Pioneer only had two daughters, Mary & Margaret. ___________________ Pennsylvania Archives Series 3, Vol VI, pg 670 State of the Accounts of the Lieutenant and Sub-Lieutenants of Cumberland County, 1777-1780. ACCOUNTS OF BENJAMIN BLYTHE, ESQ., Sub-Lieutenant, Cumberland County, from March 1777 to March 1780

Milita Fines Received - 1779 Received from Hugh Brady, collector, who died, ......... £516

Note: Since Hugh Brady II died in 1787, this reference in "Militia Fines Received" would be referring to the death of Hugh Brady, Pioneer. There is no further reference to the actual date of death, but this "1779" reference is the closest we have at this point to an actual death date. This also gives us an insight into his position in the Community as a Collector. This would have been a position of trust and responsibility. ____________________________________ The "Act to Regulate the Militia of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania" passed 17 March 1777, and the the subsequent Militia Act passed March 20, 1780, together with their amendments, required all white men between the ages of 18 and 53 capable of bearing arms to serve two months of militia duty on a rotating basis. Refusal to turn out for military exercises would result in a fine, the proceeds from which were used to hire substitutes. Though the act provided exemptions for members of the Continental Congress, Pennsylvania's Supreme Executive Council, Supreme Court judges, masters and teachers of colleges, ministers of the Gospel, and indentured servants, as a practical matter anyone could avoid serving either by filing an appeal to delay their service for a period of time or by paying a fine to hire a substitute. (It should be noted, however, that a person serving as a substitute for someone else was not thereby excused from also serving in their own turn.)

Notes

Note N314
There is no confirmed published research identifying the father of Scots-Irishman Hugh Brady. Before 1900, a myth had arisen that Hugh Brady was the son of a prominent Anglican cleric, The Rev. Nicholas Brady. Note that Hugh Brady was a Scottish Presbyterian, i.e. he was raised in the Kirk which in N. Ireland in the early 18th century was at extreme odds with the Anglican Church. In Ireland the Anglican Church had even stopped recognizing marriages of the Scottish Kirk. William Y. Brady, chronicler of the descendants of Hugh Brady discounted this myth immediately in the first few pages of his Brady Annals, published as a series of monographs from 1923-1955. There is no Hugh Brady listed among the children of The Rev. Nicholas Brady whose early line has been well-documented. Furthermore, The Rev. Nicholas Brady left Ireland to live permanently in England soon after 1690. The only "Hugh" in the family line of Nicholas is his grandfather Hugh O'Grady, the first protestant (Anglican) Bishop of Meath. (The surname O'Grady in that line was later changed to "Brady".) It seems most likely that the Scotch-Irish Hugh Brady's ancestors came originally from Scotland, where Brady, along with its variants, has been in use as a surname as far back as the year 1440.

As per both Allen Brady in 2012 and Donna Cuillard 2017, and because comments regarding the photograph on this page cannot be seen, this is a photograph of Gen. Hugh Brady (1768-1851), son of Capt. John Brady and thus grandson of Hugh Brady, Pioneer born 1709. This photograph is not of Hugh Brady.

As per Donna Cuillard of the Brady Family Association, there is no evidence to show Hugh Brady, the Pioneer, was a surveyor. There is however, evidence his son, Capt. John Brady was.

There has never been any evidence to connect Scotch-Irish Presbyterian Hugh Brady with the prominent Anglican Cleric Rev. Dr. Nicholas Brady, versifier of the Psalms. First, the well-documented Nicholas Brady never had a son named Hugh, and second, interestingly, Hugh Brady did not name any of his seven sons Nicholas. The connection is a myth that was created in the mid to late 1800s possibly for social status reasons. Unfortunately it was propagated by one or two biographical sketches of the time.

Hugh Brady had died by 1776 by which time his wife was on church rolls as a widow. The 1787 date that most hastily researched family trees show is that of his son Hugh II. Hugh's place of birth is uncertain. He is believed to have come to the American colonies from Londonderry c. 1831, and there was a suggestion he came from the vicinity of Enniskillen (County Fermanagh). It is clear that he most likely came from Ulster Province. Recent yDNA studies strongly suggest that he is descended from Bradys who originated in County Cavan. His date of birth (1709) is of uncertain origin, and there was never any evidence that he was born in either Dublin or Cork.



Hugh is 22 degrees from Robin Helstrom, 23 degrees from Katy Jurado and 16 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
