His wife died when but forty-six years of age. They had become parents of five children, only three of whom grew to maturity. James, now a resident of Woodbury County, Iowa; Asenath, wife of Harmon Kingsley, living in St Lawrence County, N.Y; Elisha, the subject of this sketch.

Elisha grew to manhood in his native county, and in 1861 was married to Alice Buttolph. 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. These were name respectively: Alice, now Mrs. Bradley; Jane, wife of William Wright, residing in Breckenridge, Wilkin Co., Minn; John, living at Fergus Falls, Minn; Myra, wife of Chester Brink, living in Sac County, Iowa; Hattie died at age eighteen years; Mary, wife of Jacob Curry, resides in Jones County, Iowa.

The paternal grandfather of Mrs. Elisha Bradley was born in New York, and died at the age of eighty-four years. The maternal grandparents of Mrs. Bradley, Philip and Elizabeth Sharp, are also natives of New York. Mrs. Sharp is still living at the age of eighty-nine years. 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.

Baptismal Date: 02 Jan 1786
Father: Johannes Scharp
Mother: Arriaantje Short
Item Number: 5864
Child: Philip
Sponsor: Philip Sharp; Geertruy Sharp
Birth Date: 02 Sep (1785). First settled by the Dutch in the 17th century, and later acquired by the British, New York is one of the most important states in the history of the United States. This collection of birth and baptism records, compiled by Arthur and Nancy Kelly, was taken from the New York church registers and minister's records 1694-1906, and town birth records 1846-49. It contains over 56,000 records from Fulton, Herkimer, Montgomery, Schenectady, and Saratoga Counties, and provides details on more than 225,000 individuals. In addition to the child's name and date of birth or baptism, researchers may find information on parents' names, names of sponsors, and notes included in these vital records. Further information and books from which theses records were taken may be obtained from:

Arthur and Nancy Kelly

Rhinebeck, NY 12572.

Church records provide the best substitute in New York State for vital record information. In particular, the Reformed and Lutheran churches kept excellent records, having the children baptized soon after their birth. Arthur Kelly has spent over 30 years transcribing and collecting early records of this area in an attempt to provide vital record information for the18th and 19th centuries before civil records were required.
