Donald JOHN Trump does not like to pay taxes, or, have the history of his finances looked at. The financial history of Robert Brevoort Buck needs to be looked at. How rich and powerful is this man>

So this woman remains an enigma, and the only clue that we possess about her was in the old family letter of Laura Brady Carr, which stated that this unknown woman was “Highly Aristocratic”, and “Stuck Up”. It may be possible that her lineage may have had some connection to Harlem, New York.

Notes for Mary Tweedle: Have thoughts that she may have been the Mary Brady living in Nova Scotia in 1787, but without proof. She was listed as the widow of James Brady in the New York City Directory in 1800, and she lived up until after 1820 in the Bowery, and Stanton streets area, by the 2 mile rock, the same location as Thomas Brady, John V. Brevoort, and Henry Brevoort, and Edward, and Mary Anna Richards. Again that she is related to this family is known, and very probable based on location. I now know that she was the Mary Brady, who issued the Bond for Johannes Brevoort in 1795 (See Thomas Brady, and Mary Tweddle in Index). While Thomas Brady listed a wife named Mary in a land deed in Harlem in 1795, and that he was a witness to the Bond for Johannes Brevoort seems to indicate that he had remarried this Mary a second time, but that Mary was later in 1800 listed as the widow of James Brady, and remained in the city directories from 1800-1820 or so, would indicate that Thomas may have only been a witness to this bond, and that Mary Tweedle, the late Mary Brevoort may have actually married James Brady. The second wife, if there was one, of James Brady, must have been Mary Brevoort, the widow of John Brevoort, a wheelwright, of New York City. While the Letter of Administration which was issued on 10 December, 1795 in New York city does not mention Mary as the widow of John, there seems to be no mistake that she was such, for all the other listings for LOA’s at this time, seem to indicate that those women who were issued Bonds on these probate records, who had different last names, were all listed as being “the Late”, which would mean they all had the husband’s last name at one time, but they had now married again, and were listed under their new last name.

The probate record is shown as follows: “John Brevoort, of New York City, Wheelwright, ADM (10 Dec., 1795) Mary Brady—-BD: Mary Brady, the late Mary Brevoort, Thomas Brady, Thomas Ellis, and Zeno Weeks, all of New York City.Only one Mary Brevoort married a man named John Brevoort during this time period in New York City, and this is shown under Mary’s previous marriage to John Brevoort above. Also it should be noted here that Thomas Brady was a witness to this LOA, and for years this author assumed that he was the husband of the said Mary Brady who was issued the bond of the estate of John Brevoort, but further evidence points to her being the son of a James Brady of New York City, based on the 1800 NYC directory.

The Brevoort family did live in Harlem, and they did own lands there prior to the 1795 date, but they all seemed to have moved away before this date, so there is no doubt that this family knew Thomas Brady quite well. That Thomas had a wife named Mary in land deed records (See Biography for Thomas Brady) misled this author into believing that the Mary Brady in this record was his second wife, which is now known as an error.

Also this author has conducted a very thorough research of the Brevoort family, with the hopes of finding a Mary Brevoort, shown as a daughter of a John Brevoort, just in case the Mary who did marry James was a daughter instead of a widow. Only one Mary seems to have been born to a Johannes Brevoort, who would have been old enough to be this Mary, and she has not been proven to have been born at all, for no baptism record exists for her, this Mary, is listed in some records as being born to Johannes Brevoort, and Margarite Van Hoorn. However, this family moved to New Jersey, and no record exists which would indicate that they moved back to New York City. There seems little doubt in this author’s mind that the second wife of James Brady was Mary Tweedle, the widow of John Brevoort. Also the death register for NYC on Sept., 18, 1827 shows a Mary Brady, aged 73 dying, but on further study, the Death index from the New York City Post Boy (Barber), shows that Mary, widow of John Brevoort died on this date, being age 73, so there is little doubt that Mary was not the wife of Thomas as presumed, but the wife, and widow of James Brady of NYC.

27 vi. Frances Brady, born August 08, 1760 in North Castle, Westchester county, New York.She married Mr. Van Blarcom January 22, 1783 in New York Dutch Reformed church, New York city.

Thomas Brady, Thomas Ellis, and Zeno Weeks, all of New York city”.This record seems to indicate that Mary Brady, was the late Mary Brevoort, and that she was the wife ofThomas Brady. However, it was later observed, through research by this author, that the Mary Brady mentioned was then married to James Brady, the son of William Brady, the nephew to Thomas Brady. This Mary was not the wife of Thomas Brady, and he only acted as a witness.A very thorough search of the Brevoort family by this author has uncovered that the Brevoort family held title to much land in Harlem, and that Mary had probably inherited a lot of land from her father’s estate in this area. This record would seem to indicate that Mary Brady, the Late Mary Brevoort was a widow of John Brevoort. In one abstract translation of the actual probate record the abstractor indicated that she was a widow, and that John was a Druggest. But John was actually a Wheelright, and Mary was actually his widow. There was a John Brevoort who lived in NYC in the 1780’s, and early 1790’s who had married a woman named Mary Tweedle, and all roads leads to this Mary Brady, as the Mary Tweedle. In October, 1798 Thomas Brady appears in the New York Sessions court books, (Kenneth Scott), as being confined upon Bail. It is not clear why he was confined, but on 11 December, 1798 in the same Sessions court records his sentence was deferred, along with his son Abraham Brady, and they were ordered to pay a fine at that time. (New York City Court Records, 1797-1801).On 10 April, 1802 he again appears in the Session court records, and was indicted for taking part in a Riot, along with other men.In 1799 Thomas first appears in the New York city Directories living as the south corner of Broad street.In the 1800 NYC census he was listed as living at Bowery Lane, and Stanton street, on one of his lots, with a large house (p.907), and this record indicates he was born before 1755, and one woman was found in the household who was born ca. 1774-1784, no doubt his daughter Mary Brady, who just after this date married Gilbert Fowler.In 1800 he was about 59, and he owned his own grocery business, and produce business in manhattan.In 1802 he again appears in the NYC directory as a grocer living at Delancey, and Bowery Lane. In 1804 Thomas was living at Bowery, and Delancey, and on 16 April, 1804 he appears in the New York City Chancery Court records as a plaintiff against a William Sypher.In 1805 he worked in his grocery business, and he lived in his house on Bowery Lane. In 1806 both Thomas Brady, and a Mary Brady were living at this same address, above 2 mile stone. This Mary Brady, was the widow Brevoort who was found in the 1795 Letter of Administration (see above).In 1817 a John V. Brevoort lived at this address as well, and Edward Richards also lived in this location as well in 1817. In 1807 Thomas lived at 253 Bowery, and at 247 Bowery from 1808 to 1809.From 1810 until his death he was living at his home at Bowery, and Stanton. In the 1810 NYC census he was found on page 212, listed as Thomas Brayda.In his household was a boy under 10, a girl under 10, and a woman born ca. 1765-1784.It is unclear who this woman was but based on his probate record it could be Effy Slagell, but the girl must have been Sarah Brady.The James Barkley (Barclay) who was a witness to Thomas’s will in 1803, and the Nathan Barkley (Barclay) who was witness to the proving of the will in 1818 may have been relatives, but research on these men have not proved such. Notes for Mary: The first mention, and only mention of a wife to Thomas was in the Land deeds in Harlem in 1795, and her name was Mary. hat Thomas lived early on in New Castle, at least until 1780 or so, would indicate that his first unknown wife may have been a neighbor in that farming community. But this author has conducted a search of the known families which lived near Thomas in this area, and no mention of any of the women in these lines indicate a marriage to either Thomas Brady, a Mr. Brady, or a Thomas. So this woman remains an enigma, and the only clue that we possess about her was in the old family letter of Laura Brady Carr, which stated that this unknown woman was “Highly Aristocratic”, and “Stuck Up”. It may be possible that her lineage may have had some connection to Harlem, New York, and that she may have inherited some property in this area, but a very thorough study of the land records of this area, along with a Title search of the lands owned by Thomas Brady, which he sold in 1795, does not show any conclusions. Hopefully, someday, either this author, or someone else will be able to identify this unknown first wife of Thomas. The Mary Brady who was issued the Bond for John Brevoort in 1795 would seem to indicate that she was his wife Mary, but later research has confirmed that she was the wife of James Brady, the son of Thomas’s older brother William (See the biographical information about this Mary, and James Brady in their family group sheet in this work).
