James B. Brownlee was born December 10, 1823 (24?). He came to the Pacific Coast in 1849. In 1852 he went east again, where he remained till 1863, when he returned to the West and lived there till the day of his death, July 11, 1918.

In 1847 he married Nancy Imbree. To this union were born eight children, six of whom survive him. Two of them were present at the funeral, Lona and Johnson. Mr. Brownlee was one of the first white settlers at Oak Flat.

Evang. H.G. Cassell of the Church of Christ in Goldendale was called to speak at the grave. Interment was in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery on Saturday afternoon.

Lona Brownlee of Yakima and Johnson Brownlee of Kent, Or., were here last week attending the funeral of their father, who was buried here last Saturday.

J.B. Brownlee, who has lived for some time with Mrs. Emma Brownlee, died July 11 and was buried in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery on the 13th. Mr. Brownlee was very aged, and while death came quite suddenly it was not entirely unexpected. Owing to the loss by fire of his private papers some years ago, his exact age was unknown, but available records show him to be at least ninety-four years of age.

He first came to this coast in 1849. Returning east, he again came west in the early 60's. He was the first white settler on Oak Flat. He engaged in freighting for a time, and hauled the first load of freight that was brought into Goldendale from The Dalles.
