7th Mayor of Bayonne

Thomas Brady was born in Ireland and immigrated to the United States at the age of 10 and settled in Portland, Maine. At age 20, he moved to Bayonne, New Jersey. He opened a grocery store and later, with his two of his brothers James and Terrence, started the Consumers' Coal and Ice Company in 1873. Brady helped establish a ferry from Bergen Point, at the southern tip of Bayonne, to Staten Island called the Bergen Point Port Richmond ferry. He then established a stage coach line from Greenville (modern day Jersey City) to the ferry at Bergen Point. Brady, who was a Democrat, was appointed in 1885 by President Grover Cleveland to be the Postmaster of Bayonne. In 1903, Brady was elected mayor of Bayonne defeating Republican Pierre P. Garven and served for two years. In 1906, he returned to the company he helped found and worked there until his death at age 78. After a two-year illness, he died in his home and his funeral was at St. Andrew's R.C. Church in Bayonne. His wife Ellen had died two months earlier.
