Civil War Confederate
May 13, 1834-September 13, 1932


Born in Jefferson County, Tennessee, as a son of Jess E. (circa 1813-1872) and Susan Coffman (circa 1813-?) Bradley. After attaining his own maturity, he hired himself out to drive a team of oxen from Georgia into Searcy County, Arkansas, and that employment brought him into Northwest Arkansas.
Two years after his arrival in Arkansas he was united in marriage with Nancy Elizabeth Lawrence. Nancy had been born November 23, 1839, Chattanooga County, Georgia, as a daughter of James "Jimmie" and Kizziah (Wade) Lawrence, and it was her father who hired Alfred to drive the wagon across country.
During the Civil War, Alfred Mack Bradley served the confederacy as a First Lieutenant in Company E, of the 45th Arkansas Militia from November 22, 1861, until December 20, 1861. That Company was under the command of his brother-in-law, captain John R. Redwine (1825-1864). Later, he would reenlist to serve in Company F. Arkansas Regulars, the Arkansas Infantry, and the 14th Missouri Cavalry, with another brother-in-law, George Melton Lawrence (1845-1925). Although that last military outfit carried a Missouri designation, the 14th was made up entirely of men from Arkansas. He was discharged in either May or June of 1865, official War records differ on the actual time of his discharge.
After the War, Arkansas remained a very violent place to live during those days that have become known in history as Reconstruction, and thus Alfred Mack Bradley took his family and fled to Monett, Missouri, after his life was threatened in Searcy County, Arkansas.
Then during 1867, he moved his family into Carroll County, Arkansas, to settle in the Parker Community, north of Green Forest. The people of Carroll County chose Alfred Mack Bradley, as their Treasurer in 1872 and he served in that capacity until 1874. He also served as a Justice of the Peace in 1886.
In later years of his life, Bradley moved into the Polo Community, north of Berryville, where he farmed and sold the produce he raised in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, door-to-door.
Twelve children were born to the union of Alfred Mack and Nancy.
Alfred died having lived to be the oldest man in Carroll County, Arkansas, according to local newspaper accounts at the time of his death at the age of ninety-eight, and he was buried in the Jones Cemetery, five miles northeast of Berryville, Arkansas.
