Brown, Mary Ann (1835–1898)

We regret to notice that Mrs. Mary Ann Brown, relict of the late Mr. Donald Brown has passed over to the majority. The deceased lady, though a kind-hearted and estimable person, was not largely known out-side her own particular family circle, but her husband was for many years a tower of political strength in the border districts. For a long time he held the position of shire secretary at Rutherglen, but he was better known for the lively and intelligent interest he evinced in local and general politics. He was a great contributor to the press, and in the old days no question of public importance could be ventilated without eliciting lengthy letters over the well-known signature. The death of his widow calls up many reminiscences of stirring times in the old days.
