PIONEER LADY GONE

Last Sunday, February 26th, 1911, Mrs. Elizabeth A. Brown, better known by many as Auntie Brown, passed away from this life at her home at Lake City at the venerable age of 77 years, 3 months and 4 days. She was surrounded by relatives and friends and all that loving hands could do was done for her in her last suffering.

The funeral services were conducted at the house by Rev. A. F. Simmons and a large crowd followed her body to its last resting place in the cemetery.

Mrs. Brown was one of the oldest pioneers in Modoc County, having crossed the plains with her father and brother in 1842. Her maiden name was Elizabeth A. Thomas and she was born November 22, 1833 at Heltonville, Lawrence County, Indiana. She was married to William Brown August 17th, 1851, in Butte County, California. There was born to them two sons, Jeduthan and Evra Brown, of which Jeduthan survives her. They moved to Surprise Valley in the fall of 1865, since which time they have resided there. Her husband died June 6th, 1907 at the age of 88 years.

Mrs. Brown was a kind hearted woman, whose many good qualities won for her a host of friends. We extend our sympathy to her son and grandchildren in their sad bereavement.
