  • 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.

  • The following on the death date of Hugh Brady, Pioneer and on the Militia service of Hugh Brady, Pioneer, is from the original research of Donna Cuillard of Simi Valley, California.

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:

Notes

  • 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.via Allen H Brady
  • The Bradys

As to the Brady grandparents of General Hugh Brady, author Belle McKinney Hays Swope states "No family of pioneers was more conspicuous in the early history and settlement of the country than the Bradys." [5]

  • 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.

  • 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.)

DNA

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. https://www.familytreedna.com/public/Brady?iframe=ycolorized

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)

As part of ongoing family and genealogical research, many cousins are participating in an atDNA study and GEDmatch to solve some mysteries. If you are a descendant of this line ~or~ have the surname Brady in your line and would like to participate, contact Barbara Shoff, her profile is Shoff-7.

I have made basic changes (e.g. DEATH PLACE = PENNSYLVANIA) here on this duplicate Hugh Brady profile. (He absolutely did NOT die in Scotland.) Seems the easiest thing to do here for this is to just delete this duplicate profile.

And Brady-29 , the original Hugh Brady profile should be retained.

I am unable to get the link posted here as a source to even come up.

Looking through my family's unsourced notes, I found a few assertions not visible on this profile, though honestly I can't read your sources, so this could be already have been considered. Our Family notes say about Hugh Brady father of Samuel (b. 1734), that Hugh:

"emigrated from Enniskillen 1732, landed in Delaware married Hannah McCormick (also from Ireland.). Awarded land in Paxtang Towhship. Added 150 Acres in Hopewell Township, 1733 Cumberland County. Pewholder in Presbyerian (sic?) Middle Church."

In the margin is written mysteriously Ulster and Fermanagh, and a later note says Hugh's birthplace was Enniskillen, but that could be a guess or just a mix up with his port of departure.

Hope there is some little lead in that which helps!
