Birth: Dec. 7, 1881
Arkansas, USA
Death: Jan., 1951
Pontotoc County
Oklahoma, USA

R.H. Brians, 69, was the son of Samuel and Ann Crawford Brians. He moved to Indian Territory, from Texas where he had lived for three years in 1894, and was a resident of Ada, Pontotoc Co. OK since 1924.
He married Mary Malsie Wheat, Nov. 21, 1900 in Hughes Co. They had four children: Wilbert, Vern, Lee and Lois Brians.
He was first a breeder of registered stock, a farmer and later was a miller at Ada Alfalfa Milling Co. for several years. He became a stone mason in his later years and worked on jobs in Enid and Chickasha. He did pecan grafting as a hobby and he developed many trees on a farm near Atwood. Pistol shooting was also a hobby, and he was a crack shot with a .22 pistol. He liked to squirrel hunt with his son.
He died after being stricken at his home, apparently from his heart. Survivors: Mrs. Mary M. Brians, his wife; a daughter, Mrs. Lois Markham, Ponca City; three sons: Vernis of Purcell, Lee of Denver, CO; and Wilbert of St. Louis MO; a sister, Mrs. Albert Gilbert, Westmoreland, CA; brothers, Horace of Non; Albert of OKC and Luke of Calif.
The funeral will be held Wed. at 2 PM at the Free Will Baptist Chruch at Non, with burial at Gerty.
