Frank Bradbury died July 10 at the home of his daughter Mrs. Nyle Benedict, Town of York. Interment took place Sunday at York Center.

Mr. Bradbury was born June 23, 1861 at Franklin Grove, Ill, to Joseph and Mindwell Proctor Bradbury. He was the youngest of eleven children. After the death of his father, the family moved to State Central, Iowa. At the age of 18 he became a cow boy in Western Nebraska. There he was married to Roundsville Borth, and took up a homestead in Cherry County. Due to ill health, the Bradburys moved to Ozark Mountains, Missouri. Four years later they moved to Nebraska where he was foreman of a large cattle ranch. Later he came to York Center, where he farmed a few years, but due to the ill health of his wife, he gave up and devoted all his time to his invalid wife. Last December Mr. Bradbury had a stroke and was helpless since. He leaves his wife, a son Mills of South Perkins, Ill., two daughters Mrs. Georgie Miller of Biddle, Mont., and Aura, Mrs. Nyle Benedict, five grandchildren. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon. A large crowd attended.
