Dr. Archibald Brown
Dr. Archibald BROWN, 69, lifelong resident of this city, passed away 11:15 p.m. Wednesday at his home, 218 West Eighth street. Death resulted from paralysis and complications. Dr. Brown suffered a stroke on July 22, 1924 and had been in ill health since that time. His condition became most critical a little over a week ago.
He had a host of friends throughout Fulton county and surrounding community and prior to his last illness had always taken an active interest in the civic and religious affairs of Rochester and community.
Dr. Brown, son of Angus and Lucy (CHINN) BROWN, was born in Rochester on December 11, 1876. On June 10, 1903, he was united in marriage with Maude Ellen WALLER in a ceremony held at Fowler, Ind. He was a member of the Rochester Christian church, the Masonic lodge, the Knights of Pythias, the Indiana State Medical Association and was a lifetime elder of the Christian church. Dr. Brown was also a veteran of the Spanish-American war. He served two terms as both city and county health officer before ill health forced his retirement.
Surviving are his wife, at home; two daughters, Mrs. Charles E. MULLINS, of Poteet, Texas; Mrs. Ernest BONINE, of Rochester; three grandchildren; two brothers, William BROWN, of this city, John B. BROWN, of Alhambra, Calif.; a sister, Mrs. Edna WALLER, of Chicago; two half-sisters, Mrs. Jane SELLERS and Mrs. Catherine FLYD [?], both of Alhambra, Calif. A daughter, Mrs. Edna BUNN, preceded him in death in 1930 and two sons passed away in infancy. Two half-brothers, Hugh [BROWN] and Dugald [BROWN] also preceded in death.
Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon, two o'clock, at the Rochester Christian church with Rev. Grant BLACKWOOD officiating. Burial will be in the IOOF cemetery. Dr. Brown's body will lie in state at the Christian church from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The body will be removed from the Zimmerman Brothers funeral home to the Brown residence this evening where friends may also call.
