About Hannah Bradley

Despite what many researchers state, Hannah was not the daughter of Nehemiah Smith. Her baptismal record, which most people use to support their claim, does not name Nehemiah as her father. The assumption that Nehemiah was her father was made by Henry Write, the transcriber, in his publication in 1855 (The New England Historical and Genealogical Register). Hannah remained in New Haven after Nehemiah Smith moved to New London. She married Stephen Bradley in New Haven, which would have been unlikely had she moved to New London with Nehemiah Smith.

The following in disputed:

Should be listed as daughter of Rev. Nehemiah Smith, not George. Both Smiths lived in the same area, at the same time, and often get confused.
