Bradbury - At home, near Modesto. October 27th. Morton Lewis: Husband of Mary W. Bradbury of Modesto; father of Bill and Floyd Bradbury of Nebraska; stepfather of Frank W. and W. C. Jones of Oklahoma City. A native of Montezuma, Iowa; aged 75 years.
Funeral services to be announced later ny Salas brothers-Moore Funeral Chapel, 1019 H Street [That was 1947; they have moved, and they are just "Salas Brothers" now.]
In the October 29 paper was a small addition - he was buried in the Masonic Cemetery here in Modesto.
===================================== Notes I put on all of these, if I remember:
Salas Brothers are still in business. You could look them up in an on-line phone book and write or call. They may have more information.
I will send you the microfilm print-out if you send me your address privately.
If you have the inclination and ability, you can repay the favor by looking up an obituary for someone who posted a request on the GenForum page for your county. I do these to repay a small regiment of people who have helped me.
================================= There is a 47-year old Lewis Bradbury in Walters, Cotton, Oklahoma on the 1920 census, married to a 43-year old Dora. He is b. Iowa, she Tennessee. His parents are both b. Indiana. There are no kids.
This might be him in 1880, maybe.
