He was remarkably healthy, never having any sickness until worn out with age; even retaining his eyesight to the last, never using a pair of spectacles; he professed religion and joined the Baptist Church after coming to Morgan County, and has left three sons and three daughters to mourn his loss. Thus has fallen the last revolutionary patriot that we are acquainted with; tho’ there are doubtless many more; but the time is close at hand when the last patriot that bared his bosom to the enemies of American freedom, will cease to live on earth; but the time should be long before a memory of their deeds should be lost to their survivors.-The Democrat, Huntsville, August 9, 1848.

BRADFORD, THOMAS.-“Not so many miles north of Amity church, on this same Choctaw line, stands the grave and memorial stone of another Revolutionary soldier.

“THOMAS BRADFORD.–A slight enclosure surrounds this lone burial spot, and the headstone, with its few and simple words, reminds every passer-by of man’s mortality, and also that the dust is sleeping there of one of the soldiers of ’76, the Immortal Band of whom a South Carolina patriot, and eloquent Christian lawyer, asks the touching, the thrilling question, ‘Shall they meet again in the amaranthine bowers of spotless purity, of perfect bliss, of eternal glory?’

“Thomas Bradford had two sons, Brasil and Nathan.”-Rev. T. H. Ball’s Clarke County, Alabama, p. 476.

BRAGG, PETER M., SR.-“OBITUARY-Departed this life, at his residence in Lowndes County, Ala., on the 21st of May, Mr. Peter N. Bragg, Sr., A SOLDIER OF THE REVOLUTION, at the advanced age of 78 years.

“Mr. Bragg was a native of Virginia, born in Fauquier County March 4th, 1763; he entered the American Army under command of Gen. Greene, at the early age of 16; and was in two distinguished battles-that of Guilford Court House, N. C., and the one near Camden, S. C.

“At the close of the war, Mr. Bragg removed to Spartanburg District, S. C., where he resided about forty-six years, and moved thence, in December 1829, to Lowndes County, Ala., where he continued till his _death. He was a member of the Baptist church more than 40 years; and his irreproachable life and unstained character exemplify the honesty of his profession and the purity of his heart. T was no partizan in religious matters, but taking the Bible alone, as his standard of Christian profession and practice; he bowed to no other tribunal. If he ever erred it was an error of the judgment, not of heart. And it may fairly demand a doubt, whether in his degenerate age, any man ever lived more studiously the life of a Christian. To speak in terms most appropriate, of the domestic, social and moral worth of Peter N. Bragg in the narrow space assigned in Obituary, would be, to those who knew him, but slight praise, and only show the imbecility of a few presuming lines, which attempt to declare the virtuous acts and beneficent deeds characteristic of a long, industrious, enterprising and virtuous life; but let it suffice here to observe, that Mr. Bragg lived for his country, his fellow-man and his God.

“As a neighbor, he promptly discharged all the duties which the mutual obligation and reciprocal dependencies of society demand.

“As a citizen, he freely took part in all matters affecting our civil rights and municipal happiness. As a Christian, he was attentive and liberal to the indigent, merciful and humane to the afflicted, kind and hospitable to strangers, and just and merciful to all.”-The Greenville Mountaineer, Greenville, S. C., June 12, 1841.
