Demise of Mrs. Philip Brown

Our community was saddened to hear Friday of the death of Mrs. Philip Brown, which occurred in the afternoon. When we are to chronicle the death of a person, it can be no sadder than when a mother is called away and several little children are left in the world to grow up and struggle in the battle of life without a mother's care.Cora Elsie Welsh was born in Lee Center on August 12, 1868 and died in Ashton on August 5, 1905, being 35 years, 11 months, and 24 days of age. On November 24, 1886, she was married to Philip Brown and to this union were born eight children, seven boys and one girl, one of the boys having preceded his mother to the better land in his infancy, leaving six boys and a little girl a few days old with a broken-hearted father to mourn the loss of mother and wife. Besides this Mrs. Brown leaves five brothers, three sisters and a father who are grieved by her death.Mrs. Brown was a member of the Methodist church having joined in 1901 from which church the funeral was held Sunday afternoon at 2:30. Her pastor, Rev. J. R. Hamilton spoke words of comfort and consolation to the sorrowing relatives and friends, taking for his text Matthew 11:28. The burial was in the Ashton cemetery. The relatives present at the funeral were her brother Chas. Welsh and sister Sarah, of Cortland, her sister Mrs. Wenmoth and husband of DeKalb, and her sister Mary, also of DeKalb.
