My name  is Herbert MAX Bradey (CAMPBELL PATERNAL-PRUITT MATERNAL).  I am a S. C. adoptee who has found both side of my family and used DNA testing to confirm and aid the process.   I am tested with FTNDA, 23 and me, Genebase,  natgeo 2.0, Ancestry.com, and a member of the Campbell and Pruitt research projects and Campbell Clan USA.  My mother was Ruth Frances Pruitt and my father remains unknown but is somewhere in the genealogy of James Campbell and Emily Marshall, 1808 and my 107/111 YDNA match is seen with Garnett Clifton Campbell in Group 66 of the Campbell project on FTDNA.. My Pruitt family has a long genealogy history documented in the Anderson, Abbeville, Corner, Starr/Iva, Pendleton district of the upstate of S. C. with particular attention to various cemetery locations such as First Creek Baptist Church and MT. Bethel in the Corner area.  With questions or comments feel free to contact me at 828-859-9227 or P. O. Box 424, Lynn, N. C. in Polk County 28750.  This site has some photos from the Pruitt maternal side of my found biological family which has been so kind as to accept me as a long lost adopted out child from many years ago, understanding that times have changed and if I was born today, my mother would keep me and not place me for adoption.  I hope to one day find living members of my Campbell family, meet them, and connect with the survivors of my father. In fact, I know very little about my father.  We have been unable to find my father.  A recent lead to the James Campbell/Dicey McCallister family proved to be a false home with the YDNA test results of Thomas F. Skip Campbell coming back not a match to me and proving the James/Dicey family line is L21 while my YDNA with my match in Group 66 is clearly DF 27**. I also search for a half sibling who was also adopted through the same identical process, network, and caseworker used for my adoption. The sex of this adoptee iS unknown.  This half sibling to me was  born in Columbia, S. C. at 1516 Calhoun St., Door of Hope home for unwed mothers, in Columbia, S. C. Exact date of birth unknown but around Summer of 1941 is probable. The mother was my aunt, Vivian Iola Pruitt and the father was Albert Frank Campbell 1919-1970. The child was likely named Baby Boy Bruce, Baby girl Sarah or Baby Girl Annie. The Children's Bureau of S. C.  probably handled the adoption and this sibling would now be around 68-71 years old.   It is possible Vivian did NOT have her child in Columbia.  She may have given birth at another Salvation Army home for unweds in Asheville or elsewhere.  Although she had the same caseworker I had in Columbia at one time no record of the birth of her child has been found.  She did have a baby.  She was not 100 per cent certain Frank was the father..... and it was difficult for her to discuss the matter as an older woman.  I am now 66 years old and retired from the U. S. Navy Seabees on the mountain, above Tryon, N. C. in Polk county.  A google search of my name, Herbert Max Bradey, will reveal the old court cases in detail under "Bradey V" which show where I won the battle for my adoption records in lower court and then lost in the S. C. state supreme court.  Those cases widely used as a legal precedent.  My search for my father continues with Campbell Clan USA and Sheila Campbell Hart, my 4th cousin on paternal side and Kevin Campbell, administrator of the Campbell project at FTDNA.  My FTDNA test # is 234361.
