IN MEMORY OF
Mrs. J. C. Brown who departed this life September 1st, 1892.
She was about forty years old at her death. She was born where her father, Mr. Duncan Munroe, now lives. She joined the baptist church at Bethlehem the last days of August or the first days of September, 1869 or '70, and has been an orderly member ever since. She has never been accused of attending dances and play parties, nor has she ever been accused of talking about people, or telling tales on her neighbors. She was one of my old school mates. She always got along well with all the students and no one could find any fault in her.
Mrs. Brown was a member of the Tallapoosa Auxiliary Musical Convention. She was a good singer and was a member of our singing class at Bethlehem Church. She has been missed in the class for the past two years. She has been unable to meet with us, and is deprived of the golden privilege of meeting with us and joining in singing the sweet songs of Zion here on earth, but while we are singing here on earth, she has joined the angelic throng and is singing in that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens, where she has met with her two infant babes who have been watching and waiting for her, where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest.
She was married to Mr. J. C. Brown about 1872. She leaves her husband, three children, a father, two sisters and several brothers and relatives to mourn their loss. But our loss is her eternal gain. Mr. Brown has been afflicted a long time and we can sympathise with him in his sore bereavement.
Bethlehem singing class will sing in memory of our beloved sister on the fifth Sunday in October. The Old Sacred Harp will be the only book used on the occasion. All good singers invited.
The old must die and the young may die. Take warning, dear people, and be prepared to meet your God in peace.
