Mrs. M. E. Brown Dead.

Mrs. Margaret E. Brown, widow of S. M. Brown, lately deceased, died at her residence in East Lampasas on Monday morning, March 13, 1899, at 12:45 o'clock, after twelve days' illness of la grippe.
Mrs. Brown's maiden name was Margaret Sexton; was a native of Alabama, born May 14, 1830; was married to S. M. Brown in March 1848; came to Texas shortly afterwards, settling in Polk County, and to Lampasas in September, 1867.
The news of Mrs. Brown's death was received with sorrow and surprise, but few realizing she was so near the end of life's journey.
Deceased had been a member of the Christian church for about forty years, was a devout Christian, a kind and loving mother, and true friend. No higher eulogy could be written.
The funeral occurred Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock, many friends assembling to show their esteem and respect for the departed one. Her pastor, Rev. C. W. Worden, conducted the services and spoke words of consolation for those who mourn the loss of their best earthly friend. The remains were interred in the city cemetery alongside the newly-made grave of her husband.
Eight children, a score of grandchildren and quite a number of great-grandchildren survive her.
Everybody deeply sympathizes with the family, who, in less than four short months, have been called on to mourn the death of both father and mother.
