Funeral Services at Bradford's Chapel.

The funeral services of Brother W. K. Bradford was held at Bradford's Chapel, Sunday, May 28, A.D. 1882, at 11 o'clock a.m., conducted by Rev. J. B. Fortner, assisted by Revs. J. C. Bradshaw and J. W. Bowden.

At an early hour the church was crowded with ladies. It was then thought best to move to the grove, where all could hear the preaching; the congregation was large supposed to be between three and four hundred people in attendance; good attention and great interest was manifested on the occasion and when the preacher spoke of Judge Bradford's punctual attendance at church during his life, and of his vacant seat, the audience was moved to weeping and tears. The large attendance and profound interest manifested on the occasion, speak in loud tones of the loss felt in the death of Uncle King Bradford.
