They built a log home of a branch of Wilson's Creek in the Southwest part of present McKinney. A hillside near the Bradley home became the site of a family Graveyard. The Original Cemetery covered about an acre of land. Though begun as a family cemetery, other members of the small Community were eventually interred here. Eleven original headstone remain in the Cemetery. There are believed to be a number of unmarked graves, as well. South of this plot a slave Cemetery was located in a wooded area, the graves marked with Boid D'Arc Wood Markers. The oldest documented grave is that of Edward Bradley (1787-1855). Nancy Bradley (d.1880), and their son and daughter-in-law, Thomas T. (d.1881) and Sarah J. (d.1876) Bradley, are also buried here.
