Funeral services were held at the late home on Friday afternoon, conducted by Rev. C. K. Hudson, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church. Interment was made in Oakland cemetery.

Mr. Brown was born in Albany New York, September 17th, 1844, and came to the state of Ohio with his parents when a child. The family resided in Ohio for a number of years, and while a resident of that state enlisted as a soldier on September 24th, 1862. He served for a term of three years, and was mustered out with his company on June 20th, 1865. At the close of the war he returned to his Ohio home and was united in marriage with Miss Juliaetta Traver, on December 31st, 1865.

The death of Mr. Brown removed one of the older residents of Manchester, and one of the men who, when his country's call for volunteers came, responded and gave three years of unstinted service. His death brings sorrow to many friends in this community.
