Mary Lee Brady, Ph.D.










We tend to believe that Madison likely had chosen the name of his favorite uncle John for his son that died during infancy, or maybe even his own name Madison.  His death perhaps prompted the decision to move from Virginia to Ohio for a new beginning, ... leaving behind the dust of dead endings like Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings.
