D. F. BROWN* and his son, JAMES A. HATCH, of Hudgins, Va., reached the home of the former's son, M. B. BROWN, at Center Church stop, yesterday afternoon, just after funeral services for MRS. M. B. BROWN had been held. They joined the funeral party at Center Church, before interment was made. Dr. Brown and Mr. Hatch made the trip in twenty-four hours. Tire trouble due to travel on steep roads, caused several delays. They expect to leave tomorrow for Virginia, after a visit with their relatives in Peters Township. Dr. Brown, member of the well known family of Peters Township, has practiced his profession at Hudgins, near Norfolk, for a number of years. The visitors found the temperature in Pennsylvania warmer than it was in Virginia. *(Note: Should read Dr. F. D. Brown.)
