Glimpses of the life and work of the Reverend Richard Bradford By: Grace D. Bradford McGibbon Mr. Bradford would take his usual Sunday service in St. Andrews on March 27, 1808, and apparently he took another one at Lachute or possibly Beech Ridge. At one of these latter places he united in marriage Gideon Blackman of Lachute District and Polly Spencer of the same place, who was 19 years of age. The witnesses were Aaron Hamblin and Samuel Blackman, and they were also Lachute people. D. H. Spencer had been living on lot 2, first Concession of Col. Robertson's land, but may have left there a little before this time, or Polly may have been working in a home in the Seigniory. Many girls worked as maids in homes, others worked in the paper mill in St. Andrews. Boys also worked in the paper mill.
