  • Notes 
    • From FAG:


      Aaron Bradley, son of Leaming Bradley and Anna (Parsons) Bradley, moved to Litchfield with his family about 1769.

      He enlisted twice during the Revolutionary War, during 1777-1778. At age 15, he served in the Continental Army's Artificers Shop in Litchfield as a blacksmith for seven months under Captain John Collins and Major Moses Seymour. He served another seven months under Sergeant Samuel Woodruff, helping to guard the Continental Army stores, artillery equipment and British prisoners.

      On 8 Jul 1787, Aaron married Lorin (or Lorrain) Abernethy, daughter of Dr. William Abernethy and Honor (Catlin) Abernethy, of Harwinton, Litchfield County. They had two sons - Horace and Leaming Bradley - and two daughters - Mary Ann and Mary Talmadge Bradley.

      Aaron had a blacksmith shop, store and tavern in Bantam, an area called Bradleyville for several decades. Aaron was a selectman for the Town of Litchfield for 9 years, and represented Litchfield in the Connecticut Assembly for 6 terms in the 1806-1810 time span.

      Capt. Aaron Bradley died 24 Oct 1843 in Bantam, according to Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots: A-D, by Patricia Law Hatcher; Connecticut, Deaths and Burials Index, 1650-1934; and Connecticut, Hale Cemetery Inscriptions, 1675-1934.

      Aaron was interred in the Bantam Burying Ground, according to Litchfield and Morris Inscriptions by Charles T Payne. The incription reads: Aaron Bradley | died | Oct 24 1843 | Aged 81. His wife shares his gravestone.
