Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 21, 1856
Indiana, USA
Death: Mar. 31, 1898
Hot Springs
Garland County
Arkansas, USA

The 1870 and 1880 census state she was born in Indiana and her parents in Prussia. The Colorado 1885 census says she is born in Germany, as are her parents. Her father's obituary says that he was in Indiana at the time of her birth, so I am going with Indiana.

Catherine was the only child of the Cowenhovens. They had come to Aspen, Colorado, during the summer of 1880.

She was the first wife of David Robinson Crocker Brown, who was a partner with her father.

Prior to her death, she had suffered with a cancerous growth in her side. Surgery had helped slow the effects for a year, but it had spread through her system. She went to Hot Springs where she found temporary relief. David, her husband and Mr. and Mrs. Elmer T. Butler were with her. Her daughters, Daisy (Margaret Mary) and Henrietta were at home in Aspen with Mrs. Finley and Mrs. Henry Devereux, sisters of Mr. Brown, planning to visit.

Her remains were brought back to Aspen for burial.
