Lynn W. Brown of Galesburg, Il. a former resident of Jerseyville, died at the Passavant Hospital in Jacksonville Tuesday, September 8, 1931.
For the past ten or twelve years Brown has been residing in Galesburg but recently came to Jerseyville to visit his mother, Mrs. Lola Brown. He was returning to Galesburg and stopped in Jacksonville for a few days. Early Tuesday morning Brown was observed by a grocerman in a building near the depot, apparently in misery. Unable to get any satisfaction after questioning Brown the groceryman summoned the city police to get an ambulance and Brown was taken to the Passavant hospital where he died a short time later.
The body was removed to the Williamson Funeral parlors where an inquest was held Wednesday morning. The jury returned a verdict of "Death due to cardiac asthma."
The deceased is survived by several children, his mother, Mrs. Lola Brown of this city, and a number of brothers and sisters.
The body was brought to the Gubser Funeral chapel in this city Wednesday afternoon and funeral services will be held from there Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Elder T.J. Roady of Kane officiating. Interment will be in Oak Grove Cemetery.
