Alfred Mc. Bradley is a Tennesseean, who was born in Jefferson County
May 13, 1834. His father, Jesse Bradley, was a native of North
Carolina, and a son of James Bradley, also a native of the Old North
State. Jesse Bradley was reared in his native State and in East
Tennessee. In Jefferson County, Tenn., he married Susan Coffman, a
native of the State. He removed his family to Alabama in 1837,
locating in Cherokee County, and resided there until his death, about
1872. Alfred Mc. Bradley was reared on his father's farm in Cherokee
County, Ala. In 1862 he enlisted in the Confederate army, joining Col.
Shaler's regiment of infantry. After serving one year with that
regiment he joined Col. Wood's battalion, and served until they were
disbanded at Jackson Post, Ark., at the close of the war. He
participated in the battle of Poison Springs. Mr. Bradley came to
Arkansas in 1854, and located in Searcy County. The following year he
married Nancy E. Lawrence, a native of Chattooga County, Ga., where
she was also reared. After their marriage they resided in Searcy
County until after the war, when they removed to Barry County, Mo.,
and engaged in agricultural pursuits. In the spring of 1867 they came
to Carroll County, and the following year located on their present
farm. He purchased 120 acres of raw land, and has since cleared
seventy-five acres and made fair improvements. On his farm is an
orchard of over 400 bearing trees of a fine variety of apples. About
1870 Mr. Bradley was elected county treasurer, and served two years.
In 1886 he was elected justice of the peace of his township, and still
serves in that capacity. He and wife have seven children living,
namely; Melinda (Mrs. Andrew Walker), Matilda, Martha (Mrs. W. J.
Ashe), Melissa (Mrs. A. J. Goforth), Susan, Clementine and Barton
Ellis, and five dead, one who died in early childhood, three infants,
