Robert Foster Bradley was born in Abbeville Co., Sept. 22nd. 1846. In early life he had the advantage of neighboring schools, and the High Schools taught by Rev. E. L. Patton, near Long Cane, and was graduated from Erskine, 1869, and from Erskine Seminary in 1872. He was licensed by the Second Presbytery the same year at its fall meeting, Cannon's Creek, Newberry, South Carolina.

Mr. Bradley was ordained and installed pastor of Generostee and Concord, South Carolina, Sept. 5th, 1873, and demitted this work in the fall of 1883. He was also installed the first pastor of Troy South Carolina, in the spring of 1884, and demitted this charge in the spring of 1889, at the meeting of Presbytery at Ebenezer, Georgia. On Dec. 5th, 1891, he became pastor of Long Cane, South Carolina, and still continues the honored pastor of this charge. Mr. Bradley has led a busy life. In addition to the duties of the pastorate, he began the publication of the "Psalm Singer." which continued for two years and was sold to Rev. George Warrington of Beaver Falls, Pa. It had the honor of proposing the first Pan Psalmody Counsel, held in Belfast, Ireland.

Mr. Bradley also proposed the famous pastoral letter issued by the A. R. Synod of 1882, and is an enthusiastic advocate of union between the A. R. P. and the United Presbyterian churches. Mr. Bradley was the Delegate from the A. R. Church to the U. P. in 1893. He is descended of distinguished parentage on both sides of his ancestry, and was reared in choice surroundings in early life. He is a vigorous, fearless preacher, true to every conviction at any cost, is a diligent student, and an impressive speaker.

Rev. Robert F. Bradley was married to Martha Rosannah Wideman, daughter of Adam Wideman and the former Mary Elizabeth "Eliza" Renwick. They had twelve children. Rev. Bradley departed this life on March 7th 1931 at the age 85 years, 5 months and 15 days. He was laid to rest in the churchyard cemetery at Long Cane A.R.P., where he had preached and was baptized.
