Obituary

J. H. Brown Dead

J. H. Brown, a farmer who recently moved from Jackson township to Winterset, died Saturday of pneumonia. He had been ill with the grip and thought that he was well but undue exposure brought on an attack of the pneumonia to which he succumbed.

Mr. Brown came to Madison county a few years ago and purchased the old Kipp farm in Jackson township. He was well to do and last fall gave up the farm to move to Winterset so that his daughter might have the benefit of the schools.

He was extensively engaged in buying and shipping hay and was putting up some large feed sheds south of the News office when he was taken sick. He was quite well known all over the cCounty and was a man who was much esteemed by all who knew him.

He leaves a wife and one daughter. His brother arrived from Nebraska and the body was taken back to his old home in Illinois for burial.
