Contributed by Find A Grave Member Sue Lilley.


Died on the 17th of Oct. 1900, at the home of his brother, Wallace Brown, Navarro county, Texas, W. W. Brown, of Lampasas, Texas.

W. W. Brown was born in Lauderdale county, Miss., Aug. 18, 1853; came to Texas in 1869 with his father, G. W. Brown and other relatives, and settled at Cryer Creek, Navarro county, where he grew to manhood. Was married to Miss Bettie Lee Fountain, Dec. 24, 1873, with whom he lived for 27 years very happily. Eleven children were born to them of whom only seven survive him. Three lie near him in his last resting place in the family burying ground, Cryer Creek cemetery. He professed a hope in Christ when young but did not join the church until two years before he died, after which he lived a consistent member to the last, but was seldom able to attend services as he was a great sufferer. He had gone to Navorro county to transact business but was taken down with fever and Hemorrhage of the lungs soon followed which soon ended in death. A few days before he died he was talking to a friend and expressed himself as being ready and willing to go, his only regret was leaving his family. A telegram was sent on the 15th of Oct. to his family, and on the 16th his sorrowing wife and baby girl reached him about two hours before he died, he was still conscious and spoke to his wife calling her name and then passed into a deep slumber from which he was never to awaken. He leaves three brothers, one sister and a host of relatives and friends to mourn with his deeply stricken wife and children in his early death. But we do not grieve as those who have no hope for we expect to meet him again. In the sweet by and by he will wake from that deep slumber, when all of us shall have put on immortality and we shall know each other there.
