UNCLE BILLY BROWN DEAD

W. A. Brown, familiarly called "Uncle Billy," by his many friends, died in Denver, Colorado, Monday morning of Brights disease.

He went to Denver only a few weeks ago, hoping to benefit his health, but complications set in and he had to undergo an operation from the effects of which he did not recover.

The remains were brought to Pond Creek, arriving Tuesday, and interment was made in the Pond Creek Cemetery yesterday.

Mr. Brown was a member of the G.A.R. Post, an Odd Fellow and a prominent Mason.

He leaves a wife and several children, the youngest being about sixteen years old.

(Published in The Pond Creek Vidette, September 3, 1914.)
