Died of Paralysis
December 23, 1912

Well Know Retired Farmer, Was Stricken While in His Yard
Eugene Brown, a prosperous retired farmer, died early Sunday morning at his home on River Street, as the result of a stroke of paralysis sustained a week ago. Mr. Brown was stricken while splitting wood in his back yard, and fell to the ground just as a neighbor, who was passing through the yard, spoke to him. Strangely enough, one of Mr. Brown's closest friends for years, Frank Mason, of Owosso Township, died last Sunday, after stricken with paralysis.
Mr. Brown was born in New York 62 years ago and came west with his parents when a small boy. They settled near Elsie, and there he grew up and lived until 14 years ago, and resided there until last fall, when he moved into this city, and had just begun to enjoy the fruits of his many years of hard work, when death called him.
Although the deceased never became united with any church, he has been a frequent attendant at church services for several years past, and one of the reasons he move to Owosso, was that he might attend religious services more frequently. He was a man of sterling qualities, and utmost integrity, and was scrupulously honest in all his dealings. He was known as one of the most practical farmers in the county.
Surviving Mr. Brown are his widow and aged mother, Mrs. Rosetta Brown, who made her home with him, two daughters, and an adopted son. The daughters are Mrs. A. T. Wright and Mrs. Edgar Bartholomew of this city, while the son, Bert Brown, is in the United States army and is stationed at Fort Terry, New York, where he is instructor in the gunners' school.
The funeral will be held Thursday morning at 10:30 at the home of the deceased, Rev Young of Perry officiating. Burial will take place at Dewey Cemetery
