Edward "Eddie" Brown
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun., 1887
Indiana, USA
Death: Jan. 21, 1905
Hendricks County
Indiana, USA

A 1940 list of headstones in the Indiana Boys School Cemetery shows "Eddie Brown" who died in 1905.

However, a review of his Hendricks County death record shows that he was NOT buried at the Boys School Cemetery, but that his remains were shipped to Shelbyville for burial. A newspaper article shows he was buried at Forest Hill Cemetery.

His mother died when he was 3 years old, in 1890. So far, his father, John W. Brown (born 1868 in Iowa) has not been found after the 1880 Census.

In 1900, Eddie was living with his maternal grandparents in Hanover, Indiana.

Newspaper Articles:

Eddie Brown, the lad who stole George Kirk's bicycle, took it to Rushville where he sold it for $3, was before Judge Morris this morning. He committed the boy to the Reform School and then suspended sentence pending his good behavior.

Eddie Brown, a refractory urchin of this place, was taken to the Boys' Reform School at Plainfield this morning by Sheriff Schoelch. The lad went away bare foot and wearing a straw hat. It used to be in Shelby County, when a pauper was sent to the insane asylum, that outfits costing $49.50 were purchased.
