    ... [William Hervey Bradbury's] grandfather, David Bradbury, was born near Elizabethtown, N.J., and after the war of the Revolution, in which as a youth he took part, married Susanna Craig, of his native town, in 1782. He engaged in farming a few years, in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky, locating in Warren county, Ohio, in 1797, and in 1804, removing to Butler county, in the same State, where he lived a number of years, and finally coming to Wayne county, Indiana, where he died on his farm, near Green's Fork, in 1824. Abner Marshall Bradbury, the fourth son of David and Susanna, was born in 1798, on his father's Warren county (Ohio) farm, on which the Shaker town, Union Village was afterward located. His youth was spent on the Butler county (Ohio) farm, and he attended school in a log school-house, one and one-half miles distant, where a three-month's term was held each winter. In 1815 his father purchased a quarter-section of land on Morgan's Creek, in Wayne county, Indiana, on which he constructed a fulling mill, with the purpose in view of establishing some of his sons in business. Here, for three years, Abner worked with two of his brothers during the fulling season, returning to his home each spring for the summer's work. This land and mill, together with other possessions of the father in Ohio, were sold in 1818, and an effort was made to settle the family on a large tract of land near Terre Haute. This proved a most unfortunate venture. After enduring many hardships and the loss of mother, two sisters and a sister-in-law, the family abandoned the enterprise and returned, much impoverished, some of them to Butler county, Ohio, and some to Wayne county, Indiana. ...
