Obituary - Daniel David Brownell

One of Oswego's oldest residents, died at his home Wednesday, July 28.

He was born near here in 1847 and with the exception of a few years spent his life here. Some years ago he with his family moved to Oklahoma, where they purchased a farm and lived there until a few years ago, coming back to Oswego they purchased land and built their present home.

In 1870 he was married to Miss Chloe VanDriesen and eight children were born to them; Mrs. Mary Haigis, Longdale, Oklahoma; Arthur of Longdale; Mrs Ella Graham of North Dakota; Miss Elvira Brownell, Henry Warren and Earl of Oswego; Mrs. Edith Murren, of Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Since returning to Oswego Mr. Brownell has been raising small fruits but had retired from active service on account of ill health. He continued to grow worse the past six months till death claimed him.

He leaves to mourn his death a wife and the aforementioned children and a host of friends who extend sympathy.

Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon from his late home, the remains being interred in Pearce Cemetery.
