  General Notes:

The early part of Eugene Brady's life was spent hunting, fishing, logging and breaking roads through the wilderness. Later in life he was converted in The Holiness Church of God. After studying for the Ministry, he was ordained as a Minister and in 1890 received his first license to preach. Mr. Brady with his wife, Tirzah, who also obtained an exhorter's license, traveled extensively through the upper part of Michigan's lower pennisula. Establishing what they called "Centers", many of which later became flourishing churches. Many of these "Centers" are identified with the Free Methodist Church. He preached for many years at the "Brady Lake Church" near his home, a section of the township which was named for his father, George Brady. Noted for his fire of speech and earnest spirit of delivery, he became one of the most popular preachers of that time and section. His life is unique, in that he was truly a pioneer in both state and Church.
