Death of Albert Brown Was Unexpected--Funeral Monday
Albert B. Brown passed away very suddenly at his home Saturday morning. He
had been to the barn to feed his horse and had got back to the doorsteps,
when he was stricken. His wife heard a little noise at the door and upon
investigation found him there. She at once got help of Eugene Hall, who
got the unconscious man into the house. Dr. Tasker arrived but the end was
near and death claimed its victim. Mrs. Brown was overcome with grief and
became hysterical. The news of the sudden death spread over the village
quickly, where he was well known and respected, and universally liked.
Mr. Brown had lived in this village nearly 50 years and had worked for the
well known firm of Hall Bros. Co. about 18 years as painter of churns and
pails. He was a good citizen and friend whom the community will miss.
Funeral service was held Monday afternoon. During the hours of the service
the shop of Hall Bros. Co. was closed down. Rev. L. G. Morris, pastor of
the Universalist church officiated. A large number of friends attended the
service. Among the many floral tributes was a beautiful design from the
employes of Ball Bros. Co. Interment was at Mt. Hope cemetery.
