John Howland Bradford born July 14, 1780

JOHN HOWLAND BRADFORD, b. July 14, 1780;
d. Dec. 7, 1863.
He was "long and widely known as the landlord
of the tavern in Leyden street, Plymouth,
that bore his name, and which for many years
the only public house in the town.
He took the old tavern stand in 1807, a few
years after it was first opened as a house of
public entertainment, and continued to keep it
as such, uninterruptedly until 1859.
During this long period of service to the
public he so lived that no man can be found
to say a harsh or unkind word against him."
