CIVIL WAR VETERAN PASSED AWAY MONDAY
JOHN L. BROWN DIED AT GWYNNEVILLE HOME-- FUNERAL WEDNESDAY MORNING
John L. Brown, aged veteran of the Civil war and practically all his life a resident of Union township, died at his home in Gwynneville Monday evening. Death was caused by heart trouble, Mr. Brown passing away at 8:00 pm.
Funeral services will be held at the Gwynneville Christian church at 10:00 am Wednesday with the Rev. Mr Hawthorne officiating. Burial will be made in the Asbury cemetery in charge of Carmony Bros undertakers.
Mr. Brown was born in Union township and many residents of that township who knew him will be shocked to learn of his passing. At the time of his death, he was eighty-two years, seven months, and nineteen days old. Mr. Brown had been seriously ill only two weeks.
At the outbreak of the Civil war Mr. Brown immediately responded to the call for men, enlisting in Co I, 48th Regt, Vol. While in the service of his country he made a splendid record.
Mr Brown leaves the widow, two sons, Orley, of near this city, and Fred, of Gwynneville; one daughter, Mrs. Murlie Sumpter, of Gwynneville; four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
[John was a son of William Brown and Delilah Rittenhouse. He was born 15 Aug 1841 and died 24 March 1924. RW]
