A HISTORICAL SKETCH OF BROWN'S CEMETERY by Louise A. Gaiser, deceased, January 2, 1963
It is interesting to note that the land whereon lies the Brown's Cemetery was pre-empted by the Gordon family. The Gordons, William and Lucretia, are represented to this day in Platte county by their great, great, great grandchildren; in fact, three generations: Goldie Alexander Fankhanek, Howard and Lawrence Alexander, and their sister, Helen Alexander Potter, and the latter's children. No doubt William Gordon was laid beside his wife, Lucretia, at Brown's, but the old monument records Lurcretia's passing only. She was born in 1795 and died January 25, 1864, at the age of 69 years, 6 months. Some of the descendants of William and Lucretia Gordon have been mentioned. Others are: Mary Alice (Daniel) Alexander, wife of Dudley Alexander, was a granddaughter on her mother's side of Lucretia Gordon. Mary Alice was born March 28, 1852, and died at the age of thirty-six, October 21, 1888. Her husband preceded her one year. They had four children, three reaching adulthood: Perry, Goldie and May Alexander. Goldie is the wife of Herman Fankhanel, deceased, of the Eldorado community. The others have gone to their reward.
