Edward Bradley
Birth: Apr. 1, 1808
Death: Aug. 5, 1847

US Congressman. Elected as a Democrat to represent Michigan's 2nd District in the Thirtieth Congress, he served for five months, from March 1847 until his death in office. Bradley was born in East Bloomfield, New York, and was educated at the nearby academy in Canadaigua. After serving as an associate judge of Ontario County's Court of Common Pleas (1836), he moved to Detroit in 1839 and became a lawyer in the town of Marshall in 1841. He was prosecuting attorney for Calhoun County (1842) and a two-term member of the State Senate (1842 to 1843). During this time he acquired a reputation as a brilliant orator, and with his election to Congress the Democratic Party had high hopes for him. By then he was seriously ill with tuberculosis. In July 1847 Bradley set out for New York, hoping to restore his health in a sanitarium prior to taking his seat in the US House; he died suddenly in Manhattan en route. His widow brought his remains home to Marshall for burial. There is a cenotaph in Bradley's memory at Congressional Cemetery in Washington DC, even though he had never set foot in the Capitol. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
