Richard Davis BRADLEY
Ms. __?__
Nancy __?__
Minerva MYERS
Husband:  Richard Davis BRADLEY
Birth:  1802/3, KY
Father:  John BRADLEY
Mother:  Olney BOWE
Wife-1:  Ms. __?__
Marriage-2:  27 Mar 1845, Christian Co., KY
Wife-1:  Nancy __?__
Birth:  1802/3, KY
Other Spouse:  m1. Mr. BRADLEY

Given her age, it's likely that this is a second marriage for her, as well as for Richard.

Marriage-3:  26 Dec 1854, Christian Co., KY
Wife-3:  Manervia / Manerva / Minerva MYRS / MYERS / MEYRS
Birth:  1 Nov 1822, Christian Co., KY
Death:  12 Jul 1875, Hopkins Co., KY
Disposition:  buried Riverside Cemetery, Hopkins Co., KY
Father:  David MYERS (1801-1848)
Mother:  Jane LACY (1802-1828)
Are these Richard's children from a former marriage, or are they Nancy's from a former marriage?

2.  Catharine R. BRADLEY, b. 1833/4

1a.  Jordan R. Dodd, ed.  1993.  Kentucky Marriages:  Early to 1850.  Liahona Research, Orem, UT (Broderbund CD-229):
Bradley, Richard D. Baker, Colena 10 Jun 1819 Warren Co.
Bradley, Richard H. Pettus, Barbary O.  9 Feb 1832 Todd Co.
Bradley, Richard D. Bradley, Nancy 17 Mar 1845 Christian Co.
I cannot find a marriage for Richard in the 1820s, when we would have expected him to marry and when he would have had to have married to be the Richard D. BRADLEY in the 1830 census of Logan Co.  The Richard D. BRADLEY who married Colena BAKER (and is in the 1840/50 censuses of Johnson Co., MO) is Richard Dickey BRADLEY, the son of Richard Tompkins BRADLEY and Abadiah DICKEY (i.e., he is not our subject).

Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1830 (Broderbund CD-315):
1830 Bradley, Richard D. KY Logan Co. Russellville p. 52
1830 Bradley, Richard T. KY Logan Co. Russellville p. 68
1830 Bradley, Thompkins KY Logan Co. Russellville p. 68
1830 Bradly, Richard KY Pulaski Co.   p. 31
These are the only Richard BRADLEYs indexed in Kentucky.  I don't believe any of them is our subject.  The Richard T. BRADLEY in Loganville is in his 60s and is listed two lines from his presumed son, Thompkins BRADLEY, who is in his 20s (m. Mary FUQUA on 5 Mar 1827 in Logan Co.).

2 white males 4 or under 1825-1830
1 white male 5-9 1820-1825
1 white male 30-39 1790-1800 = Richard (b. 1802) 
1 white female 4 or under 1825-1830
1 white female 5-9 1820-1825
1 white female 20-29 1800-1810 = Wife-1
2 male slaves 9 or under 1820-1830 = ? ?
2 female slaves 9 or under 1820-1830 = ? ?
1 female slave 10-23 1806-1820 = ?
1 female slave 24-35 1794-11806 = ?
This may or may not be our subject; or perhaps his age is wrong in the 1850 Census women weren't the only ones to lie about their age when seeking a second spouse.

1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #4 of 18):  District No. 2, Christian Co., KY, p. 420B, 886/937, enumerated 16 Oct 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Richard D. Bradley 47 M Farmer 3375 Kentucky
Nancy        " 47 F        "
Louisa R     " 17 F        "
Catharine R  " 16 F        "
Joseph P Hopson 22 M Carpenter      "
Are Louisa and Catharine the children of Richard by a former marriage or of Nancy by a former marriage?

1860 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #70 of 295):  Hopkinsville P.O., Christian Co., KY, p. 572, 515/515, enumerated 21 Aug 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
R D Bradley 57 M   Farmer 4,000 15,000 Ky
M W Bradley 38 F         Ky
V Myers 13 F         Ky
Dick McDaniel Myers 14 M         Ky
Rachel Willson 40 F         Ky
A Willson 13 M         Ky
I would have pegged the MYERS children as Minerva's and MYERS as her married name, but other records show her as the daughter of David MYERS.  Or was she a MYERS who married a MYERS?
