Obituary

PITTSFORD

Cornelius Bradley died at his home on the Plains Wednesday morning of heart trouble. The funeral will be held at St. Alphonsus church tomorrow morning at 9:30 o'clock. Friends have been requested not to send flowers. Mr. Bradley had been in frail health for years and for two months had been confined to the house much of the time. He was born in 1843 near the city of Limerick, Ireland, and in 1859 he came to this country and after a few months spent at West Rutland, he came to this town, which has been his home ever since. In 1863 he married Mary J. McKearn, who, with three daughters, survive him. During the civil war he served in company G, 12th regiment, Vermont infantry, and was never sick or excused from duty. His cheerful disposition made him a favorite. As a citizen he was honest, industrious, frugal and highly respected.
