BENJAMIN BRADY (deceased), was born May 22, 1813, in Franklin Township, Brown County; he was reared on a farm and received but a rudimentary education. In October, 1849, he married Abigail Shaw, born in September, 1812; this union was blessed with ten children — William A., Mary J., Thomas H., Sarah A., Nancy E., Elizabeth T., Arminda, Joseph K., Benjamin D. and George E. Mr. Brady had served as Trustee of Jackson Township, and was held in high estimation by the community in which he resided; his death was regretted by all who knew him. He was a kind and loving father and indulgent husband, and departed this life in June, 1875. Not only is his presence missed by neighbors and friends, but by loved ones of his own family who mourn their irreparable loss. His widow still survives him, now in her seventieth year, and resides in the northwestern portion of the township.
