Obituary (Extract): Mr. Hugh Braham died Aug 14 at Youngstown Ohio, aged 80 years. He was born three miles east of New Castle, near Neshannock church and is the oldest of a family of sixteen children four of whom survive him. Mr. Braham was educated in the common schools and then took a thorough course in select school in New Castle. He commenced to teach school when very young, his first school being at Slippery Rock and followed this occupation for 30 years.

In 1849 he married Miss Annie Mifflin, a daughter of Thomas Mifflin in Slippery Rock Township. She died four years ago. Their home for many years was on their farm near Harrisville, from which they removed to Greenfield, Mercer County, but since the death of his wife he has resided at Youngstown.

Mr. Braham was justice of the peace for many terms, perhaps twenty years in all. In early life he united with the Reformed Presbyterian church and was by that church elected and installed as a ruling Elder. In church he was punctual in presence, devote in service and faithful in duty. He was a strong temperance man from boyhood and in church and community ever filled the place of an earnest, helpful Christian man.
