      From the files of Dr. Mouraine R. Baker webmaster note. For years it was assumed that Emily was the wife of Taylor Bradley that was shown on the stone when it was still legible. But Mouraine offers the following correction:
      Emily Clark Bradley died Feb. 18, 1846, wife of Taylor Bradley. This should read Elizabeth Hickman Battin - the first wife. He didn't marry Emily until 1848
      Source quoted: The marriage was noted in the Village Record of West Chester, Chester Co. PA. They were married Mar. 27, 1845 at the home of her parents. Her death was also noted in that paper on Mar. 10, 1846. Taylor and Elizabeth had Mary Elizabeth Feb. 8, 1846 which likely led to Elizabeth's death. Mary was living with her father in 1870.
