9781330782439: Brady Family Reunion and Fragments of Brady History and Biography (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Brady Family Reunion and Fragments of Brady History and Biography

In 1744 and 1745 two hundred acres of land were granted to Hugh Brady, who came from Delaware prior to that date. Some years later two sons, Hugh and Joseph Brad-y, came into posses sion of the western part of this land grant, and disposed of it in 1794.

The old log house, around which clusters hallowed associa tions, stood within sight of the creek, and afforded a secure hiding place from the Indians. The greater portion has long since gone to decay and has been supplanted by a frame dwelling house, but the living room remains unchanged, its low ceiling and small windows bearing testimony to the architecture of a hundred and fifty years ago. The southern wide quaint stone chimney, built by our ancestor, is also a relic of those early days. Gazing into the fireplace, where huge logs burned and made bright the evening hours in that dim dead past, we drifted in memory across the intervening years, and looked into the hearts and faces of those who had woven life's great story within its glow.

The most magnificent landmark is an oak tree, peerless in beauty, spreading its branches as though in loving protection to shield the earth from summer heat and wintry blasts. Centurieshave not defaced its loveliness, nor the axe of the woodsman marred its symmetry. Beneath its shades and around the house where our ancestors went to and fro, drawing water from the old well. Enjoying the hospitality of Mr. And Mrs. Piper, the present owners of the farm, taking sweet counsel together, storing away in memory traditions and family lore, friend holding fellowship with friend, the day passed rapidly, and towards the close of the after noon we were reminded that all good things come to an end, and even a Brady picnic is not everlasting.
