This is to certify that James Daniel Brown and Phoebe Lee Crowley on the 25th of March 1841, both being minors the consent of their parents was given , W. C. Williams, Justice of the Peace.

OBITUARY: Aged: 77 years, and 25 days; Funeral service will be held from the Oak Creek Baptist Church, Friday January 29, 1904 at 1 o'clock.

Phoebe Lee (Crowley) Brown --was born 31 Dec 1926, in Ray County, Missouri. She was married to James Daniel Brown, 25 Mar 1841. They lived in Ray County till the spring of 1865, when they removed to their homestead in Butler County, Nebraska, arriving there 20 May 1865. They improved, and have been living there ever since, having gained a competence for themselves, and for their children. Sister Brown was the mother of 13 children, 9 of whom are living and were at home at the time of her funeral, two daughters and a son living in Oklahoma. They all realize that they have lost a dear mother, a dear, patient, careful Christian mother.

She went over death's river 25 Jan 1904, the immediate cause of her death being pneumonia. Having had the care of an invalid husband for four years, the latter years of her life have been years of patient care and anxiety that not many are called to live; But bearing the burden with Christian fortitude and patience. Her regret seemed to be that she left her work unfinished, from the fact that she was called home before her husband. We can believe that her's was a faithfully discharged duty to the end and that she has gone home to her reward.

She joined the Little Flock church of Primitive Baptists, constituted in their neighborhood in the year 1875, a few months after it was constituted, being baptized by Elder Isaiah Wagoner, pastor of the church at that time. She remained a faithful follower of Jesus, till called home. She was a mother in Israel in deed and truth, her home was a place of welcome to the brethren generally. We mourn her loss, but realize that our loss is her eternal gain. May the Lord strengthen and support her afflicted husband and enable the children to care for him in his affliction, until he is relieved by death-believing that there is no relief in his case but death. The writer, assisted by Elder C. M. Cooper, conducted the funeral ceremonies, endeavoring to comfort the bereaved family with the promises of our blessed Redeemer, that being partakers of the first resurrection they shall be heirs of an eternal inheritance. May the God of Israel be our strength and comfort in our afflictions.
