Death: Apr. 21, 1888

John and Sara Ann Brown were married in Jackson Co., Florida on 20 Sep 1860. (Jackson Co., Florida Marriage Records)

John and Sara were the parents of David A., Anna Elizabeth, William Henry, Infant daughter, Charlie H., Joseph Leonidas, Laura Jane and Maggie Elizabeth.

Fatal Accident......Rev. John A. Choran, of Forest Home, left his residence on Saturday, the 21 to visit his brother who lives in Brushy Creek. When near Thurston, the mule ran away with the buggy, striking a tree with such force as to throw the driver out, breaking his neck and crushing his shoulders. This occurred about 8 p.m. and he was not found until the next day, when someone passing discovered the mule, shattered buggy and the dead body of Mr. Choran. He was a good citizen and mason, and a christian gentleman, and his terrible and sudden death is deeply regreted by all in the neighborhood.
