Littleton Bradley

Littleton Bradley was a Virden area historian and publisher of numerous books and papers (listed below). He gave Macoupin County ILGenWeb permission to use many of his works, portions of which appear throughout this site.

Mr. Bradley researched more than 300 surnames during his lifetime, and gave us copies of his research notes. Although we do not have permission to post them here, we did receive permission to share with individuals on a selective basis. A sample page, for surname DRURY, is shown below. If you find a surname in his Researched Surnames list, and if you would like to see his related research pages, please feel free to contact the Macoupin County ILGenWeb coordinator.

Excerpted from a letter written by Littleton Bradley, dated 15 July 2002, to the Macoupin County Genealogical Society, referring to the donation of his surname files:

"I am pleased that you are interested in having this data, most of which was prepared while I was a resident of the St. Louis area and an employee for 33 years of the McDonnell Douglas Aircraft Company (now part of Boeing). I was born in, grew up in, and went to school in Virden, Illinois. A small portion of the data involves Sangamon County, which adjoins Macoupin on the North. It is hard to realize that over the years, I have done so much surname searching, in addition to publishing several books and papers. I like to think that I have helped some families in their search for information about their ancestors."
