    NEWS CLIPPINGS:
    The Marion Progress
    July 16, 1916

    A most unusual and notable event took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Bradley, three miles from Old Fort, on July 1st, when they enjoyed the distinction of celebrating the 75th anniversary of their marriage; Mr. William Bradley having married Miss Eva Painter on July 1st 1841.

    For seventy-five years this good couple have journeyed through life, hand in hand. How well they have kept their vows for better or for worse; together they have met hardships, endured trails and difficulties, and enjoyed the blessings that have come to them---always together. Today they will stand side by side and look back over a long and useful life spent together, for to them has been given a rare privilege that of celebrating the75th anniversary of their marriage, which is a privilege indeed, and one that very few enjoy.

    There were seven children born to Mr. and Mrs. Bradley, fourof whom are now living, and who, together with other friends and relatives, gathered to celebrate and make bright the anniversary of this Marriage solemnizedseventy-five years ago. The children are Mrs. Nancy Bradley Allison, Miss Catherine Bradley, and Mr. Charles William Bradley, and Mrs. Sarah Bradley Parker.

    Mr. Bradley is the Uncle of Mr. John Bradley of Old Fort, and has a large number of friends and acquaintances in this community, and throughout the county.He is now 95 and Mrs. Bradley is 93 years of age.

    The seventy-fifth year ofmarriage is known as the Diamond Wedding Anniversary and we feel sure though Mr. and Mrs. Bradley may possess few diamonds that the blessings of a long life together, and the dear ones who still gather around them are worth more than many diamonds.

    Mr. Bradley wasborn in Rutherford County, October 17th 1821, and it is thought by many that he is the oldest man in the state. He moved to Georgia in the early 40s, but after a few years there the call of the hills of Western Carolina became irritableand he returned to North Carolina and settled at his present home in McDowell County, which was then Burke County. While he was in Georgia he saw the first train that entered Augusta.

    Mr. Bradley married July 1st, 1841, and he and his wife celebrated their diamond wedding in 1916, but Mrs. Bradley was called home in 1918. There were seven children born to the union, four of whom are living, and three who were present at the celebration. Mr. Bradley has 78 living descendents including eight great, great grandchildren.

    Despite the fact of his many years, Mr. Bradley is hale and hearty and it was noticed that no one enjoyed more that he the d
