Passing of Brad Hadley

Brad Hadley, member and volunteer Webmaster of our site, died on August 10, 2015. He was born in 1952 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and after working in Kingston, New York and Raleigh, North Carolina for IBM, he retired to South Berwick, Maine. A web designer, he was webmaster of many sites but had a particular interest in Hadley genealogy. It was this interest that brought him to Hartland, Vermont, as Wells Hadley, his grandfather, had lived here. While visiting Hartland doing research, he joined the Hartland Historical Society. We will miss this long-distance volunteer who was so active in our Society.
