Peter Brane died at Lincolnville, Ind., April 6, 1894, aged 80 years, 8 months, and 9 days. He was born in Maryland, converted at the house of Father Doup, when eighteen years of age, joined the United Brethern Church, and lived one of the most devoted Christians, serving as class leader for forty years. He often referred to his conversion, saying that he went to church a swearing sinner, but went home a praying christian. In 1837 he was married to Elizabeth Richey. To them were born nine daughters and four sons. One died in infancy. Ten living are all members of the United Brethern church. His wife died in 1872, and before he died he motioned with his hand saying, "There is mother." Funeral services were attended by a very large number of friends. J.R. Brown.
