Ann Whitney Brown.
Ann P.E. Brown, wife of Honorable Manson Brown, whose death was announced in these columns last week, was the daughter of Kimball and Eliza (Johnson) Whitney.

She was born at Campton Village May 24, 1835, and moved with her parents to Bridgewater when about three years of age. When about ten years of age her parents moved to Bristol and lived there until about 1847, when they moved back to Campton.

She was married to Mr. Brown in April 1859, and they lived in Campton Village where Mr. Brown followed his vocation of blacksmith. After he returned from the war of the Rebellion they moved to Plymouth village and, after living there a number of years, moved to Lower Intervale about 22 years ago.

Mrs. Brown was a member of the Methodist church, the W.C.T.U. and a charter member of the Ladies' Relief Corps, of which organization she had served as president for a number of years.

In her younger days, Mrs. Brown was a school teacher and throughout her life she had helped to carry the burden of others. She cared for her parents in their declining years and, as Mr. Brown was obliged to be away from home a great deal attending to his duties as sheriff, high sheriff, etc, the details of the large farm, in no small measure fell on her shoulders.

Not only did she care for her father and mother but also two sisters in their last sickness, and with the death of Mrs Brown the last of her family passes from earth. She did her part bravely, was ever a kind and obliging neighbor and a good wife and mother. Beside the husband she leaves an adopted son and two grandchildren.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon, Reverend R.T. Wolcott officiating, with interment at Trinity. Music was by a quartet composed of W.W. Hartwell, Mrs. Lena Swenning, Mrs. Frank Calley and George H. Adams. The bearers were Alvin Burleigh, W.R. Brackett, C.A. Fellows and M.A. Ferrin.

There was a profusion of flowers as follows: M.S. Brown, crown of ivy cushion, victory palm with red roses and ribbon; Mr. and Mrs. W.M. Brown, cushion of roses and lilies with Mother; grandchildren, carnations; employees of M.S. Brown, sheaf of wheat, lilies of the valley and ribbon; Gen. and Mrs. John Brown, Concord, wreath and yellow roses; Mr. and Mrs. J.E. Porter, Lowell, Mass., wreath and white roses; Mr. and Mrs. Guy Gilbert, Lawrence, Mass, wreath of roses; Mrs. Melvin Johnson, mound of pansies; Miss Gusta Glynn, wreath of pansies; Miss Hattie Sargent, mound of pansies; Mrs. Warren Pressey, garland of carnations; Mr. and Mrs. George H. Adams, white roses and ribbon; Woman's Relief Corps, sheaf of wheat, pansies and ribbon; Enterprise Lodge D. of R., garland of mixed carnations; W.C.T.U., red carnations and ribbon. >The Plymouth Record, June 6, 1903, p4.

Obituary Memoirs.
By the death of Mrs. M.S. Brown of this town, which occurred May 25, Plymouth lost one of its best and well-known residents. She was a devoted wife, an affectionate mother and a consistent Christian, having for many years been a member of the Methodist Church. She was of a retiring disposition and thought much of her own home. She died firm in the belief of the immortality of the soul and the life beyond the grave. Her lips are stilled but the unequaled character of her life still lingers as a blessing to those loved ones who are so sorely afflicted.

The death of Mrs. Brown is a reminder of the passing away of most of the older people of the village. A few years ago the society was formed consisting of the following persons: Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Burrows, Mr. and Mrs. H.B. Marden, Mr. and Mrs. Gilmore Houston, Mr. and Mrs. George W. Bailey, Mr. and Mrs. Zebina Ripley, Mr. and Mrs Van N. Bass, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Dodge, Mr. and Mrs. Manson S. Brown, all well-known people in the village. The object of this society was sociability and pleasure. The meetings were held at the homes of its members one evening each week. Some others were usually invited but the above named were its charter members so called. Out of its sixteen members, only two are now living. All the rest, except Mr. and Mrs. Ripley, who are buried near Boston, sleep in Trinity churchyard. The two left are Van N. Bass and Manson S. Brown, both aged, and they, too, are sliding down the hill or time and soon will be gone. >The Plymouth Record, June 6, 1903, p4.
