Notes

Shared Note
There are two known William Gradys that migrated to America in the late1700\'s. At the moment the writer can not establish any solidrelationship between the two. There are many descendents of the WilliamGrady that emigrated from County Donegal, Ireland to Bertie County, NorthCarolina. The \"Grady\" hospital is a very prominent landmark in Atlanta,Georgia.
Our immigrant Grady ancestor, William Grady, sailed from the port ofLondon on the 13th of March, 1775, on the ship \"Fanny and Jenny.\" He wascarried on the ship\'s manifest as Wm Greedy - Millwright, from Somerset,England. He is also listed as a \"Redemptioner.\" This was a commonmethod of passage in which the passenger gave note or bond that he wouldpay for his passage after arrival in America. This bond was held by theship\'s captain, who could sell the bond if he so desired. The bond hadseveral years to maturity so that the Redemptioner would have anopportunity to earn the redemption money in his new land. The shiplanded in Antigua, Maryland. William\'s wife is never mentioned by namein any of the records found to da te. It is not known if he married overseas or after his arrival here but the lack of a wife named in the ship\'smanifest would indicate that he married after arrival in America. Themanifest also indicated that he was 28 years of age and that wou ld makehis birth year 1748 plus or minus one year.
By 1790 William had made his residence in New London Township,Chester County, Pennsylvania. William soon identified himself with otherScotch-Irish who settled in Pennsylvania during the latter part of the1700\'s.
Another Wm Grady is found in Philadelphia County in 1780. This Wmwas in the Revolution and lost is life in that action. Another Grady,Elisha, was in Bedford County in 1789. Bedford and Huntingdon Countiesjoin each other. In fact, Hunting don was formed out of Bedford in 1787.The fact that 3 Grady families would settle in adjoining counties may notbe relevant but it might also indicate a relationship. The fact thatWilliam named a son, John, might have been to honor a brother. Th is wasa fairly common practice and still is today. There is also evidence thatthe John in Milford Twp. was a son of Elisha.
The first U.S. census of 1790 showed our William Grady as head of afamily in New London Twp., Chester Co., PA. It shoed further that he had2 sons, which would have been John and James. In the census of 1800, hehad moved his family on to Hu ntingdon County in an area that was heavilypopulated by Scotch-Irish. In 1810 he was in Huntingdon Twp. and in 1820he finally settled in Henderson Twp., Huntingdon County, where he died in1825. It would appear from this that our William had pro blems settlingon a piece of property and staying there for a period of time. However,the writer made a personal visit to the area in which William settled andfound that the land was very poor as far as farming standards areconcerned. Therefore, it might be that William was merely trying tobetter himself. This could also explain why his sons John and James werepushing on westward by 1810. They were both found in Mahoning Twp.,Mercer County, Penn. This county is right on the Ohio-Penn sylvaniaborder adjoining Mahoning Co., Ohio. This is just 2 counties removedfrom Wayne County where the migration ended.
The first land deed executed for William Grady took place 8 August1796 when he purchased approximately 350 acres of land along with their\"appurtenances\" for the sum of 120 pounds lawful money of Pennsylvania.This purchase was made from Josep h Kelso and his wife Sarah. The wife ofthe purchaser was seldom mentioned in a deed while the seller\'s wife\'sname would always appear, in case there was a claim of ownership.
William died in 1825 and his son, Hiram, was named administrator ofthe estate. Normally the eldest son would be named in a similarsituation but the eldest son, John, was already established in Ohio andunable to perform the legal duties of a dministrator.
A diligent search was made for the graves of William and his wifebut neither could be found. 2 grave yards close to the family farm weresearched but the absence of inscriptions on the grave stones made itimpossible to establish which locati on contains their remains. Both hadchurches adjacent and one, \"Old White Church\", was very near to the Gradyand Odenkirk farms. Hiram Grady, a son, was buried in the GoodmanCemetery, also in the vicinity.

The 1780 census shows William Grady in Philadelphia County, PA.
The 1790 Census of Chester County, PA shows a William Grady in NewLondon Twp. The family had 2 white males under 16 years of age and 2white females. Strong possibility this is our William and the sons wereJohn and James. The 1800, 1810 an d 1820 Census shows him in HuntingdonCounty.
1825 shows him deceased. Hiram, a younger brother, was named executor ofthe estate of William. Normally the eldest son would be so named but inthis case both older brothers had already left Pennsylvania and it wasnatural to name the son who was closest to home.
One other son of William was George. George \"volunteered on boardAug. 11, 1813.\" He was a member of Capt. Wm Morris Company, a residentof Henderson Twp. \"In compliment of patriotism and bravery, a silvermedal of the weight of two dollars w as awarded to George Grady.\"‎[leyda.FTW]‎
