THE WESTERN STAR, 18 March 1904
At the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. E. Davis, near Coldwater, Kansas, on Saturday, March 12, 1904, Bradford Hull, aged 83 years, 5 months and 1 day.

At 4 o'clock a.m. on last Saturday, after lapsing into unconciousness for about 24 hours, Bradford Hull, father of Spencer Hull, of this city, and of Mrs. J. E. Davis, northeast of town, died without any apparent
struggle or pain. He had been an invalid from paralysis for eight years and was incapable during that time, of walking. On the Sunday before his death he began to fail in strength, and gradually his remaining vitality gave way.

The funeral services were held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Davis at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Rev. I. W. Bailey, of the Baptist church, preaching an appropriate sermon. Rev. J. B. Handy, of the M. E. church, assisted in the services. Burial took place in the Coldwater

The deceased was born in Chester co., Pennsylvania, October 11, 1820. At the age of 7 he moved with his parents to Morrow co., Ohio, where he lived for nearly 67 years. On October 5, 1843, he was united in marriage to Miss Nancy Titus. Nine children were born to the union, 6 of whom are living. The son, Spencer Hull, and a daughter, Mrs. Davis, were the only children present at the funeral exercises.

There are few more patient, more unassuming and withal, more honorable men or more conscientious and upright citizens than was Bradford Hull. He bore his affliction without a murmur and with remarkable patience.

For the past 15 years he had made his home most of the time with Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Hull. A part of the time was county for 7 years. Before coming to Kansas he spent a couple of years in Chicago. It was during his stay spent at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Davis. Mr. Hull had lived in that city that he was stricken with paralysis. For nearly all his life he had been a member of the Baptist church and had lived a consistent and exemplary Christian life. In his death the relatives and
friends deeply mourn the loss of a kind father and good man, and especially will those who for so many years, so lovingly administered to his every need, feel the pang of his absence.
