Grandfather of my husband, Dennis Brown.

George, the son of William Perry & Charity Elizabeth (Crim) Brown, was born in Rushville, IN. This was also the birth place of his sister, Cora May. They moved west and lived in Fairmont, Nebraska, where another sister, Lola Belle, was born on May 5, 1888. Around the last part of 1889 they moved to Centralia, Washington. His father died on Jan. 11, 1889, shortly after they arrived.

George married Edna Lee Smith in Centralia on July 1, 1906. They had a double wedding. Edna's sister, Grace, was married to Guy Cooper.

More about George & Edna's life can be found on Edna's memorial.

George died on August 7, 1960.
"A Pioneer Centralian, George W. Brown, died Sunday in an Olympia Hospital at the age of 81. Brown was born June 4, 1879, in Rushville, Ind., and moved to the Lewis County area in 1888. He had been a resident on Route 5, Olympia, for the past eight years. He was a member of the First Modern Woodmen of America. Survivors include his widow Edna L. Brown, at the family home; one sister, Mrs. W.L. Bronson, Route 5, Olympia, and three grandchildren."
