Was An Early Pioneer of Sanpete And Highly Respected

Special Correspondence.
Moroni, Sept. 4.-Mrs. Leonora Rees Bradley, wife of Amos A. Bradley, died Sept 1, after an illness of nine months, caused by stomach troubles. She was the daughter of Thomas and Margaret Rees, and born at Merthyr Tydvil, Wales, Aug. 2, 1853. She was brought to Utah by her Parents in 1856, making the journey across the plains in Capt. Bunker's handcart company, which arrived in Salt Lake City, Oct. 2. The family first settled in North Ogden, later moving to Wales, this county, where they passed through the many trials of the early settlers, including the fears and anxieties of the Blackhawk war. Leonora was married July 18, 1868, and became the mother of 14 children, eight of whom, three sons and five daughters, survive, as does the husband.
Mrs. Bradley was a faithful worker in the Relief society, being an honored member of its presidency during the past eight years, and was at all times ready to minister to the comfort of the sick, the poor and the needy. By her sterling traits she endeared herself in the hearts of many friends, who will long cherish her memory.
Services were held in the ward tabernacle on the 3rd inst., where a very large audience met to show respect for the departed and sympathy for the bereaved family. The speakers were Bishop Davis of Wales, Bishop Bradley of Moroni, Elder Joseph L. Jolley, Elder Olsen, Nephi Rees, President Anna M. Hardy and Counselor Hannah Faux.
