Elizabeth M. Jones

BRADLEY. -- In Liberty Tp., Porter Co., Ind., Oct. 14, 1877, Mrs. Elizabeth M. Bradley, wife of James Bradley and sister of ex-sheriff R. P. Jones.

Mrs. Bradley was born in Union county, O., August 18, 1834. She came to Porter county with her parents many years ago and has endured the hardships of a pioneer life. She became united in marriage to James Bradley June 3, 1853, by whom she has had five children -- three sons and two daughters. One son preceded her to the grave; all the rest are living. She made a profession of the Christian religion some eight years ago, and received baptism by the hand of Elder Ira Overturf. She died at the age of 45 years, 1 month and 26 days, in the full hope of eternal life beyond the grave. She leaves an aged mother, four children, brothers and sisters, and numerous relatives and friends to mourn their loss, but we trust their loss is her eternal gain. The funeral services were attended at the house, and an address delivered to a large and sympathizing congregation, by the writer.

October 16, 1877.
