Brown, formerly of Maynard, died in Skowhegan, Maine, Saturday night, Dec. 27, aged 78 years.  The immediate cause of his death was a shock.  He had been stricken about four years ago and had not fully recovered when the second and fatal shock came.  He left Maynard five years ago to go to Maine where he has since made his home with a family by the name of Deane.  The body was brought to Maynard Monday and taken  in charge by Undertaker O.S. Fowler.  The funeral was held at the M.E. church, Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock, under the auspices of Isaac Davis post, No. 138, G.A.R., Rev. A.

E, 6th Mass. Regiment Infantry for nine months, but saw no active service although he spent a winter with his regiment in Virginia.  He was a man of great integrity, honored and respected by all who knew him.  The funeral was largely attended and the floral tributes were numerous.  The American flag was draped over the casket.
