At age 5 Brady’s family moved to Ogle Illinois where he was raised and schooled. On April 7, 1885, Brady married Ms. Alice Lockridge, he was 21 and she 26. The couple had three children, William (1887), Alex (1902) and Alice (1919). Brady and Alice moved their family back to Maryland where Brady was working as an Insurance Salesman. In 1909 Brady and Alice began coming to St. Pete for vacations and decided in 1919 to relocate the family here permanently. Brady took a job selling Real Estate and dabbled in building and selling homes. Brady purchased this property at 221 13th Ave NE and pulled a permit in 1924 to erect a two-story frame house and detached garage for $5,800.
