Birth: Oct. 24, 1836
Death: Jan. 17, 1920

Published in The Rochester Sentinel

Mrs. Lucy BROWN, 83, died Saturday night at her home on east 5th street, after a week's illness with bronchitis. She retired as usual about 10 o'clock Saturday night and an hour and a half later quietly passed away. She was the daughter of Chichester and Lucy CHINN, who came to this state from Kentucky, and was born in Shelby county, Oct. 24, 1836 and is the last of eight children. When very young her parents moved to this county and settled on ground where the J. HAIMBAUGH farm now stands.
Mrs. Brown remembered well when the Indians were here and often told how they would come to their cabin and bake their Johnny cakes in their fire. She also could tell how the soldiers took the Indians away south down the Michigan road ultimately to the Indian Territory.
She was married to Nelson G. SCHAFFER, to which two children were born, Thomas A. [SCHAFFER] and Mrs. Mary H. SEIGFRIED, of this city. Mr. Schaffer died and she married Dr. Angus BROWN, who also preceded her. To this union four children were born, William [BROWN], Dr. Archibald [BROWN], of this city, John [BROWN] of Pontiac, Mich., and Mrs. Edna WALTER, of Kokomo. Mrs. Brown was a member of the Christian church of this city.
The funeral will be held from the house, 117 West 5th street, Tuesday afternoon.
