He is the only BRADSHAW in Warren Co. and the only Edward BRADSHAW on the disk.

3.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1810 (Broderbund CD-313).  Please see my WARNING regarding use of this database (the numerical data have the genders switched). 
1810 Bradshaw, Edward KY Christian Co. p. 110 00001-2001004
These data should read:
20010-00001-04
which indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 9 or under 1800-1810 = Benjamin (b. 1810/11)
= Albert (b. 1809/10)
1 male 26-44 1765-1784 = Edward
0 females 26-44 1765-1784 = Frances
1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1765
4 slaves all ages in or bef. 1810 = names unknown
Surely Frances was tallied in the wrong age-class.  The only other BRADSHAW in Christian County is a distant cousin, Charles BRADSHAW

4a.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1820 (Broderbund CD-314):

Where's Julianna?  There's a mature couple living with them; hard to say who they might be.

Still don't know who this other older male is.  Both Edward's and Frances's fathers are deceased.
