2566. Eunice Beach (Eunice Eaton , James Heaton , Mary Todd , Mary Bradley , William , Danyell ) was born 1, 2 on 4 Jan 1766 in Haddam, Connecticut, USA. She died 3, 4 on 19 Jul 1804 in Marcellus, Onondaga Co., New York, USA, of childbirth complications.

Eunice married Hon. Dan Bradley son of Jabez Bradley and Esther Beach on 21 Oct 1790 in Cheshire, Connecticut, USA. Dan was born 1, 2 on 10 Jun 1767 in Mt. Carmel (Haddam), Connecticut, USA. He died 3, 4, 5, 6 on 19 Sep 1838 in Marcellus, Onondaga Co., New York, USA.

"HON. DAN BRADLEY--was a son of Jabez and Esther Bradley. He was born at Mount Carmel, (since Haddam,) New Haven County, Connecticut, 10th June, 1767. He received a classical education, at Yale College. He entered that celebrated institution in his nineteenth year. Four years afterwards, on the 9th of September, 1789, he graduated with distinguished academic honors, and received his master's degree out of course, at the age of twenty-three. In October, 1790, he was licensed to preach the gospel, by the association of New Haven County, and the same month, viz. 21st day of October, 1790, was married to Miss Eunice Beach. On the 11th of January, 1792, he was ordained at Haddam, Connecticut, to the pastoral charge of the Church at Whitestown, New Hartford. In the month of February following, he removed his family to that place, and took charge of this new congregation and parish, and continued his pastoral care of this flock nearly three years. He was succeeded by the Rev. Mr. Johnson. On the occasion of the induction of Mr. Johnson to his pastoral office, and in honor of the event, was given, (after the solemn services of the ordination at Church,) a grand "Ordination Ball." Singular as this may appear at the present day, it was a custom then practiced by our Puritan fathers, who on any other occasion would have thought it exceedingly sinful, and perhaps a mode of religious rejoicing, which in this degenerate age of godly alienation, might be thought rather questionable.
In January, 1795, Rev. Dan Bradley was dismissed from the pastoral charge of the Church in Whitestown, at New Hartford, and the 6th of September following, removed with his family to the town of Marcellus, at the age of twenty-nine. The country was then comparatively a wilderness. He entered at once into the business of farming, with zeal and cheerfulness, and soon became noted for the purity of his taste, and success of his undertakings, setting a beautiful example to those around him, that education and refinement of mind were essential attributes to happiness and prosperity. He was appointed a Judge of Onondaga County Courts, in 1801, and by his display of legal knowledge, soon became somewhat distinguished as a Jurist. In 1808, he was appointed First Judge of the County, which office he held with some degree of distinction, till the time of his resignation in 1813, when he was succeeded by Joshua Forman. He was somewhat remarkable for his ready classic humor, and on many occasions displayed it much to the amusement and gratification of his friends. On a time, during is official capacity as judge, a certain colored man, named Hank Blakeman occupied, on the Oswego River, just above Oswego Falls, a commodious place for landing, and it was also a convenient crossing place. For the privilege of landing on his dock, the colored man exacted a small fee. This was thought rather oppressive by some of his neighbors, who summoned the Road Commissioners of the town, who laid out a road in such a manner as considerably to abridge his privileges. He feeling himself aggrieved, appealed to the Judges of Common Pleas, who upon a proper representation of the facts, took the matter into consideration. A day was set for an investigation of the matter, and Judges Humphreys, Bradley and Vredenburgh, accompanied by the present Judge Moseley, then a student with Judge Forman, at Onondaga, who went down as an advocate of the aggrieved party's rights. In those days the roads were almost impassable in that region, and the party made arrangements to go down in a boat from Salina. A suitable store of provisions and other necessaries, was laid in for the occasion, and the party set off in high spirits, anticipating a delightful trip. The day was propitious; they glided down the river beautifully, and it required but little exertion to make the desired progress. While passing along under the shady oaks and elms which crowned the margin of the river, Judge Bradley languishingly remarked how pleasant was their journey, and quoted the first verse of Virgil's Georgics,
"Tityre, tu, patulae recubans sub tegmine fagi," &c.
On they went, enjoying the scenery beyond measure. They examined the case in hand, and finally reversed the acts of the Commissioners, restoring to the injured party his rights in full, very much to his satisfaction, who was so much rejoiced, that he gave, voluntarily, as a fee to his young lawyer, five silver dollars, which he has since declared was his first and richest fee, and gave him more pleasure, than any other received in his life. Business done, they turned their faces towards home. But with the fatigues of the day, and the opposing current of the river, their progress was in the beginning rather slow. However, by dint of perseverance and hard labor, they made respectable progress. It was work indeed, and to add to their embarrassment, night was at hand; the musketoes, gnats, flies and bullfrogs, gave them no peace, and some of the party began to murmur. In this state of affairs, Judge Bradley was called upon to reverse his sentiment, received with so much ├ęclat in the morning, whereupon he readily replied--
___ "facilis descensus Averni;
Sed revocare grandum, superasque evadere ad auras,
Hoc opus, hic labor est."
Which, in the language of a familiar poet, may be rendered,
"Easy the fall to Pluto's dreary den,
But hard the scrabble to get back again."
The flagging spirits of the party were revised by this sally, and the rest of the voyage was performed, if not with wished for speed, with greater cheerfulness.
To return, it is not of his professional career that we designed so much to speak, nor of his character as a man, a christian, a parent and a friend, though in all these respects the only language could be that of eulogy. But it is of him and his influence as an agriculturist, that this sketch was mainly designed.
Always correctly viewing agriculture as the great vase of national prosperity, he devoted himself with a well directed zeal, (which some term enthusiasm,) to a thorough examination of the principles on which the cultivation of the soil should be conducted. His grand object was to reduce the process of agriculture to a science, and to induce organization and order where confusion and uncertainty prevailed. In his essays on the various subjects which he discussed, he displayed a master mind, deeply imbued with the principles of philosophy and experience, and his efforts have undoubtedly had a weighty influence in improving the agriculture of our county, as they have greatly enriched most of the various agricultural publications of the country. In the New England Farmer, the Baltimore Farmer and the Plough Boy, are found numerous forcible efforts of his sagacious and penetrating mind. The Genesee Farmer owed much of its elevated character to his reflections. It was for a long period the chosen medium through which for a long series of year, the rich results and ample experience of his mature mind were presented to the public. He was one of the first to attribute the hoof-ail, which prevailed extensively in 1820, to the prevalence of ergot in the grasses, and he collected a mass of facts on the subject, which set the matter forever beyond question. He always strenuously opposed the heterodox notion of wheat turning to chess--and showed conclusively by science and experiments, the absurdity of the idea. Indeed there is scarcely a subject connected with scientific or practical agriculture, on which light has not been thrown by his labors, a correct theory established, and objections to innovations obviated. Every subject that promised to be an improvement in agriculture, received his attention, and if its claims were well founded, he did not hesitate to adopt it himself, and urge its adoption by others. As a patron and advocate of agricultural societies, he was among the first, and to his opinions and influence, many of the prominent advantages derived by the State from the law of 1819, was unquestionably owing. He was appointed President of the first Onondaga County Agricultural Society, in 1819. His numerous articles, published in the volumes of the State Agricultural Society, and his contributions to most of the agricultural journals of the day, establish conclusively, the interest he felt in his favorite pursuit, and the zeal and intelligence he brought to its support. It was the happiness of the author in early life, to enjoy is acquaintance, and long will be remembered his conversations and lessons upon this his favorite topic. He died at his residence, at Marcellus, September 19th, 1838, aged 71 years. He died as he had lived, at peace with the world, and with an unshaken confidence in his God. Such men are an ornament to the age in which they live, and their country owes them an incalculable debt of gratitude."
