She was born in St Lawrence County, N.Y., March 10, 1842, and is the daughter of John and Jane (Sharp) Buttolph. John Buttolph, the father of Mrs. Bradley, was born in Lower Canada, and came to St Lawrence when but nine years old, and married in St Lawrence County, where he resided until 1864. Impelled by the spirit of the times he removed westward and settled in Clinton County, this State, where he purchased 100 acres of land. John Buttolph was accompanied to this place by his brother Noah. He was living in Clinton County at the time of his death, which sad event occurred in the year 1875. His wife is still living and makes her home with her children. There was a family of twelve born to them, only six of them grew to maturity.

Mr Sharp served as a soldier in the War of 1812.
Mr. Bradley, our subject, resided in New York after his marriage until 1865, when he came to Iowa and purchased forty acres of his present farm, which was then little improved; he now owns sixty acres. Mr. and Mrs. Bradley have three children- Cora, Bertha and Floyd. Mr. Bradley has been in poor health for several years and thus been prevented from accumulating much of this world's goods. His two daughters are teachers, and contribute much to the support of the family. The elder one has attended school at the Northern Indiana Normal Valparaiso; they are excellent teachers and very kind to their parents. In politics, Mr. Bradley is a Republican, and has been a strong supporter of this party since 1858. He was drafted during the war, but was excused on account of disability.
