Margaret--I too descend from John BRADY and Mary Ann (Polly) MOLDER, through an older sibling of Charlotte's, Samuel Moses BRADY. John BRADY and Mary Ann MOLDER were illegally married March 18, 1854 in Pea Ridge, Benton County, Arkansas.
The marriage was illegal because John BRADY was still "leagally" married to another woman, Elizabeth Jane CHAMBERS, of Pope County, Arkansas. This situation would cause Mary Ann some serious problems upon the death of John in claiming the widow's pension for John's disability incurred during the Mexican-American War of 1845-48.
