Mrs. Sarah A. Bradbury, mother of Dr. E.L. Bradbury of this city (Neillsville, Clark Co.) and well known here, died at her home in Hixton, Dec. 15, 1914, her death being caused by accidental burning. She was alone in the house preparing dinner, her daughter who lived with her having just stepped out of the house to feed the chickens. In some way her clothing took fire and she was so badly burned that she died that evening at five o’clock.

Mrs. Bradbury was born in England May 23, 1832. She was married there to Simeon Bradbury and soon after their marriage they came to America, locating at Bedford, Mass. In 1878, they moved to Hixton, Jackson Co., Wis. and located on a farm. Mr. Bradbury died in 1902. She was a woman of sterling qualities, possessed of the old time virtues that made for comfort and welfare of the family. While living here she made a number of close friends who learned of her death with deep sorrow. She leaves to sons, Dr. E.L. Bradbury of Neillsville and J.H. Bradbury of Fond du Lac, and one daughter, Mary, who was with her at home. Burial took place at Sechlerville on Thursday, Dec. 17.
