Juliett with parents 1850, Bennington, Vermont

Julia with 10 year older cousin Philena Stratton on 1860 census at factory.

Julia Etta was six years old when father died leaving 6 minor children.

The death of Mrs. Julia Brown, of this town, early Monday morning, was a shock to relatives and friends. She had been in good health until last Friday, when she contracted what was thought to be a slight cold. Sunday she seemed to be a little worse, although her condition was not regarded as serious but Monday morning about seven o'clock she passed away, with hardly a moment's warning.

The deceased was born at Bennington, Vermont, January 20, 1846. At the age of nine she began work as a factory employee, which occupation she followed for several years.

On May 7th, 1864 she was united in marriage to William C. Gage, at Hoosick Falls, New York. To this union were born three sons, George W. of Proctor, Colorado, Perry, of Palmer and Numan, who died in infancy; and five daughters, Kittie H. Scarborough of Gage Valley, Sarah K, Yarmon, of Elm Creek, Helen Linderman of Central City, Minnie Stork, and Julia Fidlier, both of whom preceded their mother in death.

In the spring of 1873 the family left the hills of Vermont, and came to Nebraska where Alonzo Gage and Wm. Gage settled on the first two homesteads in Gage Valley, which was then a favorite hunting ground of the Pawnee Indians. The deceased was the first white woman to make her home in Gage Valley.

They went through all the harrowing experiences of pioneer life, including blizzards, hail storms, grasshoppers, drough and Indian scares.

The family continued to reside in Gage Valley until 1910, when they moved to this town, that they might be able to take care of Alonzo Gage in his declining years.

On December 4, 1920, W. C. Gage passed away very suddenly, and for several years Mrs. Gage lived alone.

Ond October 9, 1923 she was united in marriage to Alfred Brown. They continued to make their home in this town, where they enjoyed many happy days.

For several months Mr. Brown's health has been very poor, and the deceased had been untiring in her efforts to assist in caring for him, up to the very last day of her life.

She was a kind neighbor, a devoted mother, a true friend, and a woman of heroic mould in meeting the stern requirements of life. She was a member of the Methodist Church, and of the Woman's Relief Corps.

She leaves to mourn her departure her husband, five children, nineteen grandchildren, thirty-tree great-grandchildren, five great-great-grandchildren, many other relatives and a host of friends.

The funeral was held from the Methodist Church, Wednesday, February 8, and interment was made in our Silent City.
(poem followed.)

Card of Thanks was signed by Alf Brown and children, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Scarborough, Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Gage, Mrs. Sarah Yarmon, Mr. and Mrs. F. R. Linderman and Mr. and Mrs. Perry Gage.
