George H. Bradley

May 15,1893

WELL KNOWN G.A.R. MAN

George H.M. Bradley, well known in G.A.R. circles, died at Burlington, Vt., yesterday after a long illness. He was a grandson of Captain Lemuel Bradley, who commanded the "Spy Company" in Ethan Allen's regiment of "green Mountain Boys," for whose head the Governor of New York offered a bounty of L50. Mr. Bradley was educated at the University of Vermont and Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, N.Y. He enlisted in the Ellsworth Zouaves in 1861 and later served with distinction in the navy. He was a member of Stannard post No. 2, of Burlington, and of the Vermont Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. Just before his death he presented the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution with a silver spoon which his grandfather recaptured from the Tories and Indians who burned his house during the Revolution.
