Biography of William Bradley
Wayne County, NY Biographies





Bradley, William, was born in Lyons, April 7, 1819. His father, Thomas, was a native of Londonderry, Ireland, came to the United States and settled in Alloway (a small hamlet in South Lyons), and entered the employ of Captain H. Towar. In 1818 he married Miss Louanna Bradley, who came from Litchfield, Conn., and soon after bought what has been known since that time as the Bradley Farm on the old Preemption road in South Lyons. William was educated in the common schools, to which he has added through life by reading and close observation. At the age of thirtysix he married Catherine J., daughter of William A. Teller, and they are the parents of five children, three of whom, H. Seymour, Charles W., and Mrs. Rosie Horn, are now living. Mrs. Maggie A. Ternouth died at Albany in 1884. Rev. David L. Bradley was a very highly educated man, had served as pastor two years at Cape Vincent, had commenced his third year when at twenty eight years of age, he received a summons from the master he served and loved so well, to lay down his burdens, to receive his reward. Our subject is one of the prominent farmers in his town. In 1857 he bought the William Ennis property of sixty eight acres in South Lyons, to which he has added, taking an active interest in educational and religious matters.
