BARNARD BRADY. Within the confines or Belmont Precinct, and in the southwestern part of section 24, is located the farm of this gentleman, which embraces 160 acres of land, and has been brought to a good state of cultivation. One of its most attractive features is the handsome and substantial residence, while a good barn and all the other necessary out-buildings, with fruit and shade trees, form a most attractive background. Mr. Brady has been thorough and successful as an agriculturist, and is a man of good business capacities. As a citizen he is esteemed as one of the most valued members of his community.

Our subject was born at Port George in British America, Aug. 17, 1830, and is the son of Antwin and Mary (Riley) Brady, who were natives of Ireland, and the former a British soldier in the War of 1812. Later he went to Ireland, and there the subject of this sketch spent a portion of his boyhood. His parents died in Ireland, and Barnard then returned to British America with relatives, and came to this county in August of 1854, while Nebraska was a Territory.
He took up a claim that same year opposite St. Joseph in Kansas, but the border war coming on he was forced to flee, and found refuge in Macon County, Mo., until the troubles were over.
Mr. Brady in the spring of 1863 returned to this county during the progress of the Civil War, but in the meantime had served as a Confederate soldier in Company I, 4th Missouri Infantry. He located permanently on his present farm in September, 1870, and is now the owner of one of the most desirable estates in this part of the county.
Our subject was married, in May, 1870, to Mrs. Sarah Nestor, widow of George W. Nestor. and daughter of Dudley and Kerby Abbott. Mrs. Brady was born Oct. 9, 1843, in Missouri. Her parents were natives of Ohio, and their household consisted of fourteen children. Of her union with our subject there have been born five children, four of whom are living, namely: Thomas H., John D., Edward W. and Andrew J. The eldest is sixteen years of age and the youngest nine. Of the first marriage of Mrs. Brady there had been born two children. both daughters, Caroline and Martha, who are living in Oregon and married. Mr. Brady, politically, is a Democrat, and socially, in 1883 identified himself with the Masonic fraternity.

Bernard Brady died in 1893, and is buried in Nebraska City, Nebraska.

Robert F Brady, Katherine Brady and George R. Brady are buried next to each other in the Brady family lot at the north end of Range 9 West of Vernon's Glendale Cemetery. Robert's brother, James Lawrence, and his family share the same lot.
George R Brady (Dec 24) 1909 - (Mar 25) 1936
Katherine Brady (Aug 7) 1873 - (Nov 28) 1929
Robert F Brady (Sep 2) 1864 - (Mar 25) 1936
"Father and son committed suicide together as a means to end their suffering from an illness on March 25, 1936."
Katherine's year of birth may be 1874. There is some confusion in my sources. Robert and George died on March 25, 1936. (You had Mar 26.) Leo "Lee" A. Brady remained in the Vernon area for several years but left the area later when he quit farming

Leo died in Englewood, Colorado January 13, 1990 and was buried in Glendale Cemetery, Vernon, Colorado.
1923 "A wedding of interest to a number of our readers occurred last Thursday when Miss Marcella Brady became the bride of Mr. Clasence (sic) Wise. Both Mr. and Mrs. Wise are well known young people of Vernon and have a large circle of friends who are wishing them much happines."
