1838 Maria Blong married William Bradley in Ireland before she emigrated. The marriage was a Lea Parish church and was witnessed by Joseph Blanc and Joseph Lutterel. It was probably the same William Bradley who was a witness to the marriage of her sister Elizabeth Blong to William Watson in 1843

1862. Emigrated to the USA sometime after the birth of their son George in 1846. Her son George Henry Bradley's death cert records that he was born in Ireland on 29 April 1846, and that his mother's maiden name was Blong. Immigration year is listed as being 1862 for George Henry Bradley, so it has to be the same for his parents. Mary Bradley b1840 in Irelnd and John Bradley b1842 in Ireland are on 1860 US census

1893 She dies in Cincinatti, Ohio, and is buried in Spring Grove cemetery in the same plot as her sisters Harriet and Mary Ann and brother Charles . She dies of "Malaria and old age" aged 77.
