PIONEER DIES AT ADVANCED AGE
Summons Comes to Mrs. Julia Brown Oct 22, After Long Illness
FUNERAL ON SUNDAY
Leaves Son, Daughter, Eight Grandchildren and Other Relatives

Julia Traver, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Traver, was born in Corbetsville, N. Y., June 1, 1848, where she spent her childhood. She was married in Mercer county, Pa., Dec. 31, 1865, to Walter Brown, and soon after, they came to Delaware county, Ia., and made their home, for a while on a farm south of Manchester, then in Manchester itself, for more than 50 years.

For many weeks Mrs. Brown had been in declining health, much of the time being spent in bed. Following a period of coma for many hours, she slept peacefully away before dawn Friday, Oct. 22, 1937 at the advanced age of 89 years, 4 months and 22 days.

Mr. Brown preceded his wife in death May 26, 1915. She leaves to mourn her passing one son, Harry Brown, and one daughter, Mrs. Gertrude Durey, both of Manchester; eight grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren. Mrs. Brown was the last surviving member of a family of seven children.

She was a good woman, not only in her home, but among her neighbors. A real pioneer, she displayed the habits and virtues that made her life full of good works, respected by the chance acquaintance and loved by those who knew her best. For twenty-five years she had been a member of the Manchester Methodist Episcopal church. By her own request, expressed a considerable time ago, the funeral services were held in that church Sunday, Oct. 24, conducted by the pastor, the Rev. Thomas P. Shaffer. Her remains were interred beside those of her husband in Oakland cemetery.
