Charity M. Brown

Mrs. Charity M. Brown
Mrs. Charity M. Brown, late wife of George Brown, was born in Porter county, September 23, 1838, died April 21st, 1895, aged 56 years 6 months and 28 days.

Mr. and Mrs. Brown were married on July 17th, 1855. The family consist of ten children -- Mary J., wife of J. Brewer; Josiah; John F.; Jerome; George M.; James; Elizabeth C.; Charles W., Anna M. and Carrie. All were present except Mrs. Gus Johnson, who is very ill. Mr. Brown has been a resident of Porter county for a number of years, and by the constant practice of frugality on the part of himself and his beloved wife he has been able to accumulate considerable wealth.

Mrs. Brown has been a patient sufferer with a cancer for the past year or more. One year ago this month a surgical operation was performed with the hopes that the dreaded disease might be eradicated but of no avail, it had fastened itself to such an extent that it was beyond the reach of medical skill.

The funeral services were conducted at the residence on Tuesday afternoon at 2 p. m. by Rev. H. C. Weston, assisted by the M. E. choir. The discourse was based on a chapter which she marked on the fly-leaf of her bible Math. XXIV chap. Mr. Weston laid special stress on her last words which were full of regret that she had not achieved more in her feeble way for God and said she died with the hope of immortality. Words would be weak to express the commendation that is due to Miss Carrie, youngest daughter, for her devotion to her mother during her long siege of sickness, surely such devotion will have its rewards in future days when remembering, that all was done to make the last days and moments as comfortable as kind hands could make and a loving heart could wish.

A large concouse of friends and neighbors were present at the obsequies. The funeral offerings were numerous.

After the services at the residence a procession of 100 vehicles moved in regular order to the cemetery at Chesterton, where the remains were laid to rest awaiting the resurrection morn.

THE TRIBUNE extends it sympathy, with the innumerable friends of the deceased, to the surviving husband and children.
