The Contra Costa Gazette (Martinez), August 4, 1877 (Saturday). Page 2, Column 6."DIED. BROWN In Martinez, August 1st, Lawrence M. Brown, aged 44 years, 6 months and 13 days." END ANDThe Contra Costa Gazette (Martinez), August 4, 1877 (Saturday). Page 3, Column 2."DEATH OF A PIONEER RESIDENT. Lawrence M. Brown, Esq., who died at his residence in Martinez on Wednesday morning [August 1] last, after a protracted and trying illness, was the youngest of the children of Hon. Elam Brown of Lafayette, and one of the earliest pioneer residents of the county, having moved here with his father and family in 1847, from San Jose, where they arrived late in the preceding year, after the long, and then hazardous journey over the plains. Lawrence was then a boy of but thirteen years, and all the thirty years since then, as boy and man, he has lived with the people of this county, to nearly all of whom he was personally known, and they will long cherish a rememberance of his gentle and amiable qualities of character. The deceased leaves a widowed wife [Mary], two sons [Eugene and Cornelius], his venerable father, now eighty years of age, two brothers, Judge Thomas A. Brown and ex-Sheriff Warren Brown, and a sister, Mrs. N[apoleon] B[onaparte] Smith, together with many other relatives and friends to mourn his decease in the prime of manhood.The funeral on Friday [August 3] was largely attended by friends from various portions of the county, the Pacheco Lodge of Odd Fellows directing the observances in accordance with the ritual and forms of the order, the religious services being held at the Congregational church, Rev. Mr. Tuthill officiating, and delivering an appropriate funeral discourse."
Aged 44 years.
