Mrs. G. W. Brown Dead

The home of Mr. G. W. Brown on Kenmore Avenue was made sad on Sunday morning early when the death angel came and claimed for his own his beloved wife.  Mrs. Brown was well known in this county, having been born and reared herein and has many relatives and friends to whom the announcement of her death will cause sorrow. Even though she had been in ill health for sometime, no one dreamed her condition was so critical and her death was a sudden shock to our people.  She was a sister to the late Dr. E. S. Foster and has a brother P. W. Foster of Ingleside, and a sister, Mrs. P. J. Carraway of Greensboro, who still survive her.  She was 56 years of age and besides her husband leaves two daughters, Misses Mamie and Matilda Brown of Amityville, N. Y. and three sons, Messrs Foster Brown of Norfolk, and Peter and Wilmot Brown of Louisburg.  She was a consistent member of the Methodist church, and her funeral was preached by the pastor, Rev. R. W. Bailey on Tuesday morning.  His [?] were expressed and his attributes worthily bestowed.  After the ceremony, the remains were taken to the cemetery where they were laid to rest in the presence of a large number of friends and relatives.  The pallbearers were D. F. McKinney, S. P. Boddie, W. H. Ruffin, J. B. Yarborough, J. A. Turner, N. B. Allsbrook.  The floral tribute was beautiful.  The family has the sympathy of the entire community
