George B. Bradley
George Beckwith Bradley (February 5, 1825 – January 9, 1916) was an American lawyer and politician from New York.
He was born on February 5, 1825, in Greene, Chenango County, New York, the son of Orlo Fuller Bradley (1799–1845) and Julia (Carter) Bradley (1804–1891). He attended the common schools. Then he studied law, was admitted to the bar, and commenced practice in Woodhull, Steuben County, New York. On July 11, 1850, he married Hannah Eliza Lattimer (born 1826).
He was a member of the Constitutional Commission of 1872–1873.
He was a Justice of the New York Supreme Court (7th D.) from 1884 to 1895, and sat on the General Term (now the Appellate Division) from October 16, 1893 until the end of 1895, when he retired upon reaching the constitutional age limit. On February 21, 1896, Bradley was designated by Gov. Levi P. Morton to hold extraordinary special terms of the Supreme Court in Corning for the remainder of the year, to dispose of backlogged business. On September 30, 1896, Bradley was appointed again to the Appellate Division, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Calvin E. Pratt.
He died on January 9, 1916, in Corning, New York.
