The Late Albert Bradbury
Albert Bradbury died at his home in this village May 15th from the result of a shock of apoplexy suffered two weeks earlier.
Mr. Bradbury was born Oct. 11, 1839, at Hanover, N.H. At the outbreak of the civil warhe enlisted as a nine-month's man in Co. F, 15th regiment of N. H. Vol. infantry. At the expiration of this termhe re-enlisted and remained in the service to the close of the war. Since the war he had been continually engaged in the sawmill and grist-mill business up to the day he was stricken down, first at Canaan, N.H., and then at Claremont, N.H., where he had charge of the large lumber works of Freeman, O'Neil & Co. for 17 years. He then held a similar position for Thomas Marston at Lebanon, N.H.
He came to Bethel in 1889 and took charge of the Bethel Mills for William Wright, and had remained in that position through successive ownerships of the mills. A faithful man in all his duties, his long terms of employment in the same position give ample proof of his fidelity.
His home life was particularly congenial and pleasant and the death of his wife a year ago this month was a sad blow to him. Mr. Bradbury was a man of rugged frame and was very fond of outdoor life and hunting and was a great fox hunter.
He was married May 29, 1869, to Addie E. Morse, who died May 24, 1900. He is survived by two children, William J. Bradbury and Addie R. Bradbury, both living with him at the time of his death.
Prayer was offered at his late home here last Friday morning by Rev. E. A. Reed. Funeral services were held at Enfield, N. H., Friday afternoon, Rev. Walter Dole officiating, and the interment was at West Canaan.
