MARIA CLARRISSA FAY daughter of HARRISON FAY and ISABELLA KINGSTON
Milton Eagle June 30,1916
Another of that great host of pioneers that made our great western country what it is has departed for the better land and left behind her many relatives and friends.Maria Clarissa Fay was born in Racine, Wisconsin August 26, 1836. She was married to Walter Scott Brown November 13,1860 to which union eight children were born, six of whom survive her.
She came to the country in the 70s and moved to Milton in the early 80s and has been a resident of this place for more than 30 years. Her husband W.S. Brown was one of the founders of the Milton Eagle, and later bought out his associates interests and was actively engaged in this line of work for some time. When his boys became older he turned the plant over to them.
Mrs. Brown was a well known and liked lady, being active in the life of the city. At the time of her death she was living with a son seven miles up the north fork. Old age and complications were the cause of her death she being sick for some time previous. She died in the afternoon of June 26, 1916 at the age of 79 years and 10 months.
The funeral services were held from the Presbyteriam Church, Rev. B.F. Harper officiating. Interment was made in the old city cemetary. The body was taken care of at the Munselle undertaking parlor in Milton.
We wish to join with the many friends in tendering our sympathies to the bereaved of the departed loved one.
