James Walter Brown's obituary:
James Walter Brown was born Oct. 19, 1881, and on March 14, 1959 at the age of 77 years 4 months, and 23 days. Just as a new day was dawning "His soul took its fligh"t, to that sweet rest prepared for such as he. Surely he has lived a Christ0like life and has "fought a good fight" and kept the faith, and was only waiting the call of the Saviour to come home to Heaven.
He professed faith in Christ in his boyhood days and joined the General Baptist Church at Garrett's Creek, then later moved his membership to Maple Grovel He was an ordained deacon and wa faithful to his God and his church until he reached the end of the journey.
He'll be sadly missed from his church, his community, and all his dear ones, and many, many friends, "But he leaves behind something that far out weighs the gold of this world, the memor of a life well spent in striving to serve the true and living God" and letting his life shine for Christ that it might brighten the the pathway of others he met day by day.
Many tmes we've heard his voice ring out in praise to his "Father in Heaven" both in word and in prayer. He liked to tell of the great love and grace of God and the many marvelous blessings he enjoyed as he walked hand in hand with Jesus along the way.
He was married when a young man to Mary Hawkins and eleven children came to bless their home. His life companion and one son and one daughter preceded him in death.
He leaves four sons - Rev. Curtis Brown and Bascom Brown, both of Scottsville, Ky. Rev. Tom Brown, Adolphus, Ky. and Ona J. Brown of Frankfort, Ind. Also five daughters: Mrs. Lucy Rippy, Adolphus, Ky., Mrs. Bessie Graves, Westmoreland, Tenn., Mrs. Lela Wolfe, Mrs. Jesse Nell Dalton, and Mrs. Jewel Marsh, all of Scottsville, Ky.
Surviving also are one sister, Mrs. NOra McGuffey and four brothers, Rev. Silas Brown, Rev. Clarence Brown, Willie and Odell Brown. There are thirty three grand-children and twenty four great grand children, with a host of other relatives and friends.
Mr. Walter has been ill for several weeks but bore his affliction with patience and courage. Just looking forward to the time when he would give back the "Spirit to the One who gave it", and reveive the "Crown of life" thats waiting for those that love and serve the Father in Heaven.
"Oh we loved you precious daddy
But God must have loved you more;
For he called you home to heaven
To that bright and shinning shore.
Someday we're going to meet you daddy,
In that home so bright and fair;
So be waiting and watching for us daddy,
We'll be together again, up there."
