Joseph C. Bradley
The photograph above shows, left to right, Victoria Josephine Moor, her sister, Joseph Bradley, and possibly Victoria's younger brother.
According to family records, Joseph and Victoria were engaged just prior to his enlisting. Unfortunately, just six weeks after joining Co. E, 2nd US Sharpshooters, Bradley was killed in action at Boydton Plank Road, in Virginia. Two older brothers, Isaac and Elias, both members of the 142nd New York Infantry, also died during the war.
Four years later, Victoria married John Calvin Coolidge, of Plymouth. Their son, John Calvin Jr., was 30th President of the United States.
