Death of Wilmer Brown

Mr. Wilmer Brown, a younger brother of Capt. Albert Brown, died in San Francisco on Tuesday last, aged 34 years. He was at the time a resident of Santa Cruz, but for some years made his home in Nevada. He was a young man of brilliant promise and amiable qualities. He occupied a seat in the Nevada Legislature during one session of that body. He had been in declining health for a long time, suffering from an acute bronchial affliction. A few weeks ago he returned to Santa Cruz on a visit to his brother and in the hope that this climate would offer him some relief. He subsequently returned to San Francisco, where he died from hemorrhage of the lungs. On Wednesday his body was brought here by his brother, and the funeral took place yesterday from the residence of Mr. R.C. Kirby. The Rev. Mr. Willey officiated. The deceased served as soldier n the ranks of the Union Army during the war, and the few ex soldiers having their home in Santa Cruz testified their respect for their deceased comrade by following the remains to the grave.
