Candidate Biography:

Family: Son-in-law of Samuel Wilson

  • NOT SO DEAD: In January 1864, a newspaper reported that B. F. Marshall killed B. T. Bradley and Samuel Wilson after a disagreement between Marshall and Bradley in which Wilson had testified against Marshall. Bradley wrote a contradictory note (published in the Marysville Daily Appeal on January 30th) saying: "It affords me pleasure to be in a conidition to contradict the report. Neither Wilion nor myself has ever had any difficulty with Marshall, and I suppose Marshall will be as much surprised to to see the report as I was."
