This is a longshot which I do not think will help you. My Wilmington, N.C.,
Capt. Richardd Bradley, Sr., Patriot, and Capt. Philip Yonge, Loyalist (from
Georgia under arrest, Bradley was commissioner of Loyalist sequested
estates) were kin to the prominent Wilmington Lord family. Circa 1900, some
of the Wilmington Lords removed to NYC as financiers and I think one of
these Lords was in the N.C., Society of the Cincinnati on Capt. Bradley?
