From History of Marcellus, NY, 1878

The first permanent settlers here were Dan Bradley and Samuel Rice in the fall of 1795, and Dr. Elnathan Beach the following winter. The latter, in 1796, erected the first frame house in the town, near the dwelling house of Curtis Moses, of a later day. The second frame house was erected by Judge Bradley, and the third by Deacon Rice. In 1806 there were nine dwellings in the village.

HON. DAN BRADLEY.- We have already referred to Hon. Dan Bradley in our notes upon the early settlers. He was one of the most distinguished citizens of Marcellus. Born in Haddam, Conn., on the ioth of June, 1767, he graduated with distinguished honors at Yale College in September, 1789, and received the degree of M. A., at the age of twenty-three. In October, 1790, he was licensed as a preacher of the Gospel, and was pastor of the church in Whitestown, (New Hartford,) till 1795, in September of which year he settled in Marcellus. His business was that of a farmer, and he reduced farming to a science, both practically and theoretically. It has been said that the improvement of agriculture in the County of Onondaga and in this whole section of the country, was due more to his influence than to that of any other man. As a patron and advocate of agricultural societies he was among the first, and to his opinions and influence many of the prominent advantages derived by the State from the law of 1819 was unquestionably owing. He was elected President of the first Onondaga County Agricultural Society, in 1819. His numerous articles published in the volumes of the State Agricultural Reports and his contributions to most of the agricultural journals of the day, established conclusively the interest he felt in his favorite pursuit and the zeal and intelligence he brought to its support. He was appointed a Judge of Onondaga County Courts in 1801, and first Judge of the County in 1808, which office he filled with great credit till he resigned and was succeeded by Judge Forman in 1813.

Judge Bradley died at his residence in Marcellus, September 19, 1838, aged 71 years.
