"Andy" was my great-grandfather. He was the first of eight children for William Lefrederick Bradley and Sarah Jane Ayers.

He married Louise Williams (daughter of Wyatt Nonn Williams and Mary Elizabeth Addison) on May 20, 1894 in Buchanan, Georgia. They were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on June 18, 1924.

Four children were born to them: Daniel, Mary Etta, Robert Stanley, and Benjamin David. Their only daughter was my maternal grandmother.

Andy and "Lula" were instrumental in building the first LDS Church in Georgia, donating materials from their hardware store. Mobs burned down the church building.

They were also farmers. Around 1917, they moved to Idaho for reasons no one in the family seems to know. Andy didn't know how to farm via irrigation and they eventually gave up the farm they'd bought in Idaho and moved to Utah to be closer to their daughter.

In his older years, Andy made a living traveling and sharpening scissors.

He and Lula were married 52 years. One of his great-grandsons was named after him, Robert Andrew Giolas.
