Rev Francis Braddock Sr
From: "HISTORY OF GREENE COUNTY, PA" by Rev. William Hanna 1882 page 70-72
Settled at Greene county, PA by 1805.
...referring to Greene county which was once the southeastern portion of Washington Co in Pennsylvania until 9 Feb 1796...
"Among this number was Francis Braddock, who settled on land still owned by his descendants, in 1805. This man was of Scotch descent on his mother's side, and of English descent on his father's side, (a distant relative of the unfortunate English General who figured so prominently in the campaigns of 1754-5) He was undoubtedly a good judge of land, having selected some of the fines in the township. He was a zealous, ernest, uncompromising Presbyterian, and seems to have been the means of gathering kindred spirits of the same faith and order around him.... One of the peculiarity of both these original families was the number of their sons that became ministers in the Presbyterian Church. Three of the sons of Francis Braddock, Sr.; viz: Francis, Jr., Cyrus G. and Joseph, were inducted into the ministry. While David and James H. still hold the original lands, they were both elders in the Presbyterian Church of Unity."
