Seventy-Second Anniversary.

On Monday, June 26, 1905, the neighbors and many of the friends of Uncle Doc Brand were called together at his home near Stroud, Alabama, to celebrate his seventy-second birthday.
There were more than one hundred present, old and young, and the day was spent delightfully to the satisfaction to all. Just at 11:30 dinner was announced, and there was spread before us, upon a long table, in a beautiful oak grove near his residence, great quantities of rich food, such as would tempt the appetite of the timid. This was served to the comfort of the many and then followed an Old (Sacred) Harp singing by the sons and daughters, who know how to sing.
The pastor of his church being present, was called on to preach, and did so, using as a text the following scripture: "When I am old and gray headed, O God, forsake me not!" Many appropriate remarks were made by others during the services and all appeared to feel the sacredness of the meeting.
Elders Avery and Morgan had been invited, but they having plenty, were not present; but the poor and the needy from the highways and the hedges thronged the grounds and the house was filled.
Uncle Doc Brand is one of our oldest and most respected citizens quiet, humble and beloved by all.
A small purse was collected to purchase a walking cane to be presented to him as a token of the appreciation of those who were the recipients of his kindness on that day.
The days of our years are three score and ten; and if by reason of strength they are four score, yet is their strength, labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. Psalm 90:10.

By Elder J. T. Satterwhite (Pastor of Mount Pisgah Primitive Baptist Church).
From the March 18, 1908 issue of "The LaFayette Sun":

Mr. J. M. Brand died at his home near here March the sixth and was buried the next day at Mount Pisgah, where he was a faithful and consistent member for many years. T. J. Prather conducted the exercises.
