Roxanna Thrall

I recently found an ancestor, Roxanna Thrall. The only information I have on her is below. Do you have any suggestions on this?

Leonard Bradley was married twice; his first wife being Roxanna, daughter of William Thrall, of Tolland, Connecticut. The date of this marriage has not been found, but proof of it is established in William Thrall's will, probated in 1851, in which document he bequeaths "To my daughter Roxanna Bradley, one hundred dollars." Her name is mentioned in a list of pioneer women who came to Ohio in or before the year 1840... some of their children are buried... in the Rugby Cemetery... The early church records of Ellington were lost or destroyed by fire.1

Thank you for your time,
Ann Marr

I have no Roxanna Thrall and no William Thrall from the period you mention. Sorry.

I do however have four Bradley members in my tree.

If you establish a stronger to the Thrall family do let me know.
