Rachael Rebecca Brammell was born Aug 27, 1855, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Keever, and her girlhood days were spent on a farm near Seireleville.

On Sept. 10, 1873 she was united in marriage to Eli Brammell and they became the parents of fourteen children, three of whom died in infancy. Mr. Brammell passed away in 1904 leaving her in the care of her eleven children and it has been her privledge to rear them all to maturity.

Since leaving the farm home near Michigantown several years ago, she had spent her time in the various homes of her children, where she was a favorite with her twenty grandchildren. She also had eighteen great-grandchildren.

She was deeply devoted to every member of her family, and they each returned her love with as loyal an affection for her.

In the early morning hours of March 10, the light of her earthy life went out and she heard the Master say, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant enter now into the joys of the Lord." Thus her life quietly slipped away from a land of cares to a land of love where all is enduring joy, and now:

Mrs. Brammell is survived by one brother, O M Keever of Fortville Ind., four sons, J.M. Brammell, Elmer E Brammell both of Kokomo, Walter Brammell of Forest, and Charles O. Brammell of Indianapolis, Seven daughters, Mrs. Earl Williams, Mrs. Forest Smith, Mrs. Russell Praim. And Mrs. Dell Waltman, all of Kokomo, and Mrs. Vern Carter of Sheridan, Wyoming, Mrs. Lilly Christie of Indianapolis, and Mrs. Jess Sheets of Frankfort, Ind.
