A. James Brady Papers

 Collection
Identifier: 0000-0022M

Scope and Contents

The collection contains business papers such as advertisements, shipping lists, price lists, and invoices from companies in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Canada, dating from 1843 - 1854, many of them fastened into a book. It is uncertain whether they are connected with Brady. His own correspondence is mostly from Felix E. O'Rourke, a drygoods dealer in New York City. Brady's last letters are written from Milledgeville, Georgia where he was engaged in Civil War activities such as sock production, writing Governor Brown about military training, and making recommendations for the staff of the Lunatic Asylum. The business papers of James Creden, Enniskillen, Ireland, are also included.

Creator

Biographical / Historical

Andrew James Brady (born between 1820 and 1830) appears to have come to the United States from Enniskillen, Ireland (possibly County Fermanagh or County Wexford) around 1848 to the USA. He seems to have been connected with New York businesses as a bookkeeper and salesman and to have operated in Baldwin County, GA, by 1860. He was still living there in 1880.
