From The Colorado Transcript, 10-6-1886, The death of
Mrs. William Brady occurred (an) Sunday morning last, in this
city. The case is a sad one, as deceased was only about 17 years
of age, and had been married but a few months. The earnest sympathies
of the community are with the bereaved husband and relatives.
From The Colorado Transcript, 3-12-1890, It is with sorrow
that we announce the death of little Ethel Brady, and to her
parents we extend our sincerest sympathy.
From The Golden Globe, 5-16-1896, Mrs. Turnidge, aged
83 years and 6 months, mother of Mrs. Louisa Brady, departed
this life Wednesday night, caused by paralysis, (S)he was born
in Nashville, (Tennesseee). Her husband, Rev. M. Turnidge, died
in Carlton Mo in 1860.
From The Golden Globe, 1-8-1898, pg. 3, Tom Brady Jr.,
son of Joseph Brady, died in Denver on New Years day of abscess
on the liver. He had the typhoid fever some months ago, and the
disease left him in bad shape, and he lingered along until death
ended his trouble. He leaves a wife and one child.
From The Golden Globe, 3-25-1899, pg. 3, Zephaniah Brady
died at Trinidad on March 12 aged about 70 years. For many years
he had been subject to epileptic fits. Four days before his death
he had a severe fit, and on the evening of the 11th he went to
bed feeling badly. Next morning Mrs. Brady looked in his room
and he seemed to be resting easily. At 8 o'clock his son Virgil
came home from his nights work, went in and spoke to his father
and put his hand on his head, and he touched a corpse. Death
had come some hours before. The burial was at Trinidad and Mrs.
Brady came up this week to pack up and move the household goods
to that city. Zeph Brady was an old soldier, a good man, a kind
neighbor, and his death will be mourned by many old friends at
Golden where he lived so long. He came here in 1873, and as an
engineer and carpenter was a useful and industrious man. We extend
condolence to the bereaved family.
From The Colorado Transcript, 4-26-1899, pg. 5, Another
of our old and valued citizens has passed away. Thomas A. Brady
died in this city on Tuesday last at the ripe age of sixty-four
years. Mr. Brady has for a number of years been engaged in mining
in the bed of Clear creek within the city limits of Golden, and
with fair success. He leaves a wife and five grown children,
and a large number of neighbors and friends to mourn his demise.
The funeral occurred from the family residence in Thursday, and
was largely attended.
From The Colorado Transcript, 2-14-1929, pg. 8, Elmus

His wife being an inmate of the State Hospital for the insane
The children, Eva, 14 years old, Roscoe, 12, Lavinia, 9, and
Francis 7, whose pictures were in the Denver Post Saturday, are

find their father asleep from which he never awoke. Mr. Brady
was buried in the family plot in Golden cemetery Saturday afternoon.
