John Ammons, 1908: "W. T. Bradley was, for some years, a minister in the French Broad
Association, having been ordained by one of its churches. Bradley is one of the ablest preachers of
his generation, and is a good pastor; he has served many churches and has succeeded well in his
work; he has labored much in revival work, and has had good success; many have been added to
the churches as the fruit of his ministry. He is now a member of the Buncombe County Association."
