Mrs. Harriet E. BALCH, well and favorably known, in this city, was suddenly stricken with paralysis while visiting her daughter, Mrs. W. B. YOUNG, on Friday night. She lingered in a state of insensibility until midnight of Saturday when she passed to her eternal rest, peacefully and evidently without pain. Dr's. ROBINSON and HINTZ attended her but gave no hope from the beginning. The funeral this afternoon at the Baptist church was attended by a host of sorrowing friends who followed the remains to Oak Grove cemetery. The deceased leaves two daughters, Mrs. Wm. B. YOUNG, of this city and Mrs. Nels SALLING, of Grayling and several grandchildren; also a mother, Mrs. KINNEY aged 81 years whom she has cared for with more than Spartan courage and fidelity. Coming to Manistee about 14 years, since, Mrs. BALCH soon won a warm place in the hearts of all who knew her, by her purity of life, industry and integrity. She was the soul of honor, ever prompt in her business engagement as well as in giving aid to the suffering, wearing out her life in a filial duty, until God in His mercy said "It is enough, come up higher." One of the noblest on earth, she has gone to her reward, leaving an example by which the world may well profit, and of which her bereaved friends may be proud. True friend, faithful mother, filial daughter, fare thee well!-Manistee Democrat. (14 May 1891)

The following information extracted from the Grayling, Crawford Co., MI Newspaper Avalanche. NOTE: The date at the end of each extract indicates the date of the publication:
-MRS. J. E. BRADLEY, DEAD.
One of the saddest deaths that has taken place in our village in many years, was that of Mrs. J. E. BRADLEY which occurred at her home here Friday morning, May 17. Her illness was of short duration and her death was caused by that dreaded disease, pneumonia.
She was born at Leroy, Mich., Nov. 25, 1871, and was married to J. E. BRADLEY, Sept. 8, 1890. She came to reside among us five years ago and has won many friends by her sweet disposition and Christian character. She was a loving, faithful wife and mother, always thoughtful of their wellfare and happiness.
She leaves a husband and two little boys, who are well known to all here, a father and mother and two brothers in California, besides a large circle of friends.
Impressive and appropriate funeral services were held at the M. E. church Sunday, conducted by Rev. E. W. FRAZEE. She was buried at Elmwood cemetery 'neath a wealth of blossoms, living tributes of faithful friends.
The sorrowing family and friends have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in this, their hour of bereavement. (23 May 1907)

We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the many friends for their kindness during our recent bereavement.
J. E. BRADLEY,
Howard and Harold BRADLEY. (23 May 1907)

CHAMBERLAIN. Rev. Humphrey FLEMING, officiated. After the service the company sat down to an elegant banquet. Owing to the recent death of Mr. BRADLEY's father the service was a very quite affair, there being no other guests than the near relatives.

The marriage of Supt. J. E. BRADLEY and Miss Edith CHAMBERLIN during vacation was a grat surprise to the High School.
