Mr. Brawley died Thursday in Sweetwater Memorial hospital where he had

1889 he was married to Sarah Elizabeth McGlynn.

The Brawleys came to Rock Springs in 1900 and he had resided here since
that time. He was a retired coal miner and made his home with a
daughter, Mrs. Harry Stewart at 320 Angle street.

Mrs. Jack Schultz of Sacramento, Calif.; three sons, James Brawley of
Ft. Washakie, Jack Brawley of Rock Springs and Thomas Brawley of

Brawley died here in October, 1937 and a son and daughter, Hugh Brawley
and Mrs. Elizabeth Salardino, died in 1947. One brother, Patrick Brawley
