Brown, John (1824–1906)

Mr John Brown, of Ebenezer, only survived his wife six weeks, for he passed away on the 3rd instant, after a month's illness with influenza, at the ripe old age of 82 years. During his illness the deceased resided with his daughter, Mrs W. J. Kemp, with whom indeed both the old people had lived for some time. All his life the late Mr Brown had followed farming pursuits. He was an industrious son of toil, and a man whose uprightness of character and fairness in all dealings were admired by all. His death removes another of the links which binds the present to the past. Particulars of the family were given in our reference to the death of his wife a month ago. It is only six weeks since a son, Mr Sydney Brown, passed away at Manly, so that this family has had their share of trouble lately. Right up to the last the old gentleman was tenderly nursed by his daughter, Mrs Kemp, and other members of the family, assisted by Mr Kemp's mother and others. The funeral took place on the 4th instant, Mr T. Collison being the undertaker. The remains were committed to earth in the historic Ebenezer cemetery by Rev Mr Baird, assisted by Rev J. D. Brown.
