Museum the New Llano Colony



Paul Bradshaw

Birth: Born in Iowa about 1898.  

Description: His WWI draft registration card dated September 9, 1918 describes him as being of medium height with slender build with brown hair and blue eyes. At that time he was working at a brush maker for L.A. Compton in Chicago, Ill.  

Pre-Colony History: In 1900, he was living with his parents in Batavia, Iowa. In 1910 and 1920, they lived in Locust Grove, Iowa and he worked as a paper boy (1910) and laborer in a broom factory (1920).

He came to the colony with his father and brothers Carl and Ray from Iowa -- some time after the death of his mother in 1930 at Batavia, Iowa.  

Family Information: Son of William E. and Mary Emma Bradshaw and brother of Ray, Carl and Oral Bradshaw.

Married Nellie Kemp while living in the colony.

 

Job in Colony: In 1931 Lentz was leading the woodsmen crew consisting of Maurice Collins, Charley Derleth and Paul. At that point they were cutting four miles west of the village, sawing and splitting pine wood for boiler fuel.

He often worked at the Ice Plant -- in March 1932 he and Willard Emry worked the shift from 7 AM to 3 PM there. 

Home in Colony: According to maps, the Paul Bradshaw family lived two houses north of Hwy. 1211 on what is now Third St. 

Other Info: In 1930, he and his wife, Nellie, were living in Chicago where he worked as a receiving clerk for an electrical manufacturer and she did general office work at a coffee house.

In 1935, Paul, Nellie, and his father returned to the colony, arriving about midnight after their drive from Newton, Iowa where they had been living since leaving the colony three years prior.

 

Post-Colony History: In 1938, they moved to Deming, New Mexico where the couple had their own sandwich shop. Paul was employed at the Deming Army Air Field during WWII and in 1949, both he and Nellie were employed by the T&M Dairy.

 

Death: Died in 1964 at El Paso, Texas.
