Timothy H. Brady
The Grim Reaper called another old time Brainerd resident a few days ago. He was one of the most beloved and respected employees of the Northern Pacific.
The veteran Engineer Timothy H. Brady passed away at St. Joseph's Hospital in Brainerd Thursday, August 13, at the age [of] 87 years.
He was born in Ireland January 12, 1844 and migrated to America in 1865.
The veteran Engineer [began] his railroad career [in 1866] as a machinist helper at Adrian, Mich. The year following he went to Missouri and continued in his railroad work. On July 4, 1868 he made his first trip as an engineer on what was then the North Missouri.
He came to Brainerd in 1871 and in April 1872 was engineer on the first regular passenger train from Brainerd to Moorhead. He served faithfully his employers and in 1922 he was retired from active service.
He was married September 7, 1878 to Frances Chapman [daughter of Sarah Chapman], who survives him as well as six of nine children, Mrs. Lillian Neville of Grand Forks, Mrs. Fred Craig, Grand Forks; Mrs. Leslie Sullivan, East Grand Forks; Mrs. Bob DeMars, Blackhorn, N. D., Mrs. W. C. Dorbarnot, Houston; Mrs. Clarence Jeffrey, Valley City, N. D. Nine grand children and two great grand children survive him. His only son, John J. Brady died at Denver, Colorado, on August 21, 1927, and funeral services were held in Brainerd for young Brady under auspices of the American Legion.
The funeral was held from the home to St. Francis Catholic church Monday morning at 8:30 o'clock, Rev. Father James J. Hogan officiating. (Brainerd Tribune, Thursday, 20 August 1931, p. 1)
Word has been received in this city that Mike Brady, brother of Engineer Tim Brady, of this city, was killed in a wreck on the N. P. railroad at Winnipeg Junction at 2 o'clock this morning. (Brainerd Dispatch, 27 October 1899, p. 8, c. 2)
