Caney & Bradley, the most enterprising watchmakers and jewelers in Batavia. are located on the site of the oldest established jewelry firm in the place, on the southwest corner of Main and Jackson streets, for over 50 years being associated in that line. C. C. Church began the business here in 1830, and was succeeded by G. W. Allen in 1835. Others followed him until Homer Kelsey located there. In 1887 Messrs. Caney & Bradley bought out Mr. Kelsey. Ashton W. Caney, the head of the firm, came from New York city, possessing a large experience of many years' practice as a watchmaker and jeweler, which qualifies him to largely control the trade of this section, an evidence of which is shown by the full and complete line of goods, and varied assortment of fancy articles, carried by the firm. C. C. Bradley, who came from Palmyra, N. Y., is a young man of integrity, and a worthy aid to Mr. Caney in maintaining the position held by the firm.
