Dr. David Hoover Bradley was born Nov. 28th, 1839, died July 12th, 1906, aged 66 years, 7 months and 14 days. He was born in Lafayette county, where he has since resided with the exception of a few years before the war when he made two trips across the plains to Santa Fe with Julius Clarkson now of this county who was the wagon master. He attended the Dover College and afterward taught school. He then attended the Medical school at Keokuk, Iowa. He afterward practiced medicine at Hoffman in this county. He came to this community in 1870 and located at Uncle Billy Whitsett's in the Mt. Hebron neighborhood and practiced there about eighteen months. He ten came to Mayview and made his home with Reuben and Thos. T. Puckett until his marriage, with Miss Kate Majors on June 11th, 1878, who has preceded him by almost 7 ears to the grave. He made the good confession early in life under the preaching of Elder J.W. McGarvey and has lived a consistent Christian life. He united with the Christian church at Mayview in 1872 by letter. His sisters left are Miss Lucy Bradley of Cucamonga, Calif., Mrs. Fitzpatrick of Higginsville and Mrs. Robt. Moore of Carthage, Mo. His daughters Mrs. O.R. Day of Edmond, Okla., (who was here) and Miss Bess, are left. We would say to these two daughters and his sisters left here, to weep and sorrow not, for your loved one is now enoying the blessed home of happiness; and remember always that although your loved one is absent in body, his spirit is ever watching over you to guide your footsteps in right paths and will be ready to welcome you to the beautiful home when it is the pleasure of your Heavenly Father to call you. So be faithful to the cause in which you have embarked, and to ever hold in remembrance the things which your loved one has taught you and cling to the Rock of Ages, and to rejoice that while he cannot come back to you, it will not be long at most before you will be called on to come and meet him whom you loved so well on that beautiful shore, where no sickness, no death, no tears, no sorrow can ever come to mar the pleasure of that reunion which can never be broken, but where all will be joy, pear, love and happiness forever and forever. Dr. Bradley was devoted to the practice of medicine. He kept in touch with every advance of his loved profession always taking the best literature and journals. Being a student, he was every ready to read up and study so as to be prepared to meet any emergency that might present itself. He was also a lover of nature. No one could appreciate a rose or the tiniest flower more than he. The night was never too ark or stormy for him to go and see the sick when called upon. He treated all alike; the poor had his sympathy and care as well as the well to do. He was a great lover of music instrumental and vocal. He often found great comfort in his violin. The funeral services were held in the Christian church July 13th conducted by Elder Arthur Downs. His talk was from a part of 25th verse of 21 Chapter of Revelation, "For there shall be no night there." The remains were interred in Marvin Chapel cemetery there to remain until the great resurrection morn. The pallbearers were A.B. Matthews, Chas. W. Kincheloe, T.M. Chinn, F.W. Ridings, Wm. L. Smith and D.E. Herr.
