James R. Bradley, 1881-1907
James R. Bradley Dead - Burial To Be Here
Death Occurred at El Reno, Okla. and
Remains Will Arrive Here Today
Death has claimed James R. Bradley, aged 26 years, he being afflicted with heart trouble for the past four months so as to be considered in serious condition, and death coming Sunday morning. He was the son of P. H. Bradley, and leaves a sister, Ruth, who was with him at the time of his death, and a brother, Carl, of Jamestown, Va. He was married to Miss Bessie Stephenson, and leaves his wife and a son to mourn him. The little son is at the Albert Bradley home in this city, where the remains will be brot this afternoon and the funeral held Wednesday.
The death of this young man brings much sadness to this community where he was so well known. He was a pharmacist here, going to El Reno to engage in the same business. He was an Elk, and a delegation from the El Reno lodge will accompany the remains here.
