Obituary of Antoinette Catalina Garlock Brown (provided by Mary Anna Elizabeth Brown Laflen)
Nettie C. Garlock was born in Bluegrass, Scott County, Iowa, Aug. 13, 1855, where she resided with her parents until Oct. 6, 1875, when she was married to N. P. Brown of Center Grove, Iowa, at which place they made their residence for six years.

In the spring of 1881 they moved to the vicinity of Carleton, Nebr., and bought the farm upon the north line of Thayer County where they lived for a number of years. This was the birth place of several of their children.

Mrs. Brown was among the faithful toilers who helped to make it possible to build the Summit M. E. Church. Later she and the family removed to the village of Carleton, and remained here and in the vicinity for 39 years.

In the spring of 1920 they removed to Schell City, Missouri, where they were living at the time of her death, Feb. 9, 1922.

She was the mother of seven children, Mrs. Etta Dobson, and Roy Brown, of Schell City, Mo., A. J. Brown of Rockville, Mo., Mrs. Annie Dyer of Thorp, Wash., Isaac N. Brown of Carleton Nebr., Mrs. Mable Fullenweider of Idaho Falls, Idaho, and Ora C. Brown of Walker, Mo.

All are here except Mrs. Dobson and Dyer. Beside bringing up her own children, she reared two children of her sister's and a niece of Mr. Brown, Mrs. Ida Stickel who is also here. All these, together with her husband, two brothers and a sister and a multitude of friends, are left to remember her many virtues and mourn her loss.

.....years while she lived in Carleton, she had the care of her father and mother, the former blind, the latter paralyzed, also an aunt who was paralyzed and with her for along time. All three passed away, one after another, at the home of Mrs. Brown.

She was faithful member of M. E. Church for more than 35 year; was Superintendent of the Junior League for several years; being a lover of children, she made a striking success of that work. She was the faithful and efficient President of the Ladies Aid Society of Carleton for ten years, and made every sacrifice to make its work successful.

She was a Charter Member of Grace Lodge, No. 47, Degree of Honor, which was organized Mar. 30, 1893, in which she held many office of trust, and was a member of that Order until her death.

In Carleton she was best known as a friend in need to any one; no matter who, nor what they needed, she always did her best and utmost."
