James B. Bradford
James B. BRADFORD, aged 87, died Tuesday morning at his country home
4 miles south of this city. His death was due to old age. He had been confined to
his bedfor more than two months, but has for eight years been very feeble. Mr.
BRADFORD was born in Virginia, but came here from Ohio in 1843, and has
lived on the same place in this county since 1840. His religious life began when
he was a very young man, at which time he joined the M.E. church, and has since
that time been a faithful and untiring worker in the cause of good. Mr. BRADFORD
has been married twice, his first wife having preceded him to the great beyond. To
the first union six children were born, three of whom are living: Mrs. Clara PALMER,
living in Dodds Twp.; J.W. and B.M. BRADFORD, sons, the former living in Dodds
Twp. the latter in Mt. Vernon. No children were born to bless the second union.
The funeral will be held at Bethel church at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning,
followed by interment at the PACE cemetery. The funeral service will be conducted
by Rev. W. A. BROWDER.
