which denoted that something unsual was agitating his mind. some attributed it to the fact that
Edward contemplated taking a leave of absence, while others said he was in love, and that the little
cupid dart had pierced his heart, and that nothing but matrimony wo uld ease his mind, and relieve
hie friends of their terrible anxiety.

EDWIN J. BRADLEY, proprietor of the Bradley Hotel, Culver , Marshall county, is a native of Woodstock,
Canada, born on the 8th of February, 1878, son of
and Margaret J. (McNutt)
Bradley, both of whom were born and reared in the Dominion, and are at present residents of Culver .
In 1889, when eleven years of age, Edwin I. came with his parents to the town named, receiving his education
in its public schools and at the Culver Military Academy. Thereafter he spent a year in railroad work, and passed
some time in the west.
His marriage occurred September 28, 1901, to Lucinda M. Baker, a daughter of J. J. S. and
Almina (Taylor) Baker, and their child, Milford D., is now four years of age.
Mr. Bradley was in business with his father for two and a half years, after which he assumed the independent
hotel venture, in which he has been so successful. His house contains thirteen rooms, is well-arranged, modern
in equipment, and an institution of which the town is proud.
Mr. Bradley and son are erecting an annex to their hotel, dimensions being twenty-eight by one hundred feet,
for the purpose of placing therein one of the most approved bowling alleys found in the state, at a cost of
$3,000. They are gentlemen of much business ability, and the excellent location of their property, within a
short distance from the Pennsylvania depot and the banks of the beautiful Maxinkuckee lake, will make their
resort one of the most pop ular in the vicinity of the lake.
Their guests will find these gentlemen and the attaches of the hotel most courteous at all times.
Besides the hotel, they keep in stock the best brands of cigars, tobaccos, candies, fruits, ice cream and all soft
drinks. We bespeak for them signal success in their business.

for integrity, reliability and broad intelligence. - History of Marshall County Indiana (1908) Daniel Mc Donald pg. 492-3
