Death of a Former Resident.
A Poughkeepsie {N. Y.) paper received here last Saturday brings intelligence of the death of Edward Wylie Brown on the 19th of July, aged 54 years. If our recollection is not amiss Mr. Brown was the first express agent into Decorah, combining in himself the joint duties of local agent and messenger by stage from the railway over to Decorah before the “Decorah branch" was laid. His office was in the rear end of the McHenry & Allison building. Those who knew him will recollect his jolly, rollicking disposition and genial nature. While here he married Miss Nancy Fitzgerald, a very charming and popular teacher in our city schools and a sister of Tom Fitzgerald, who is one of the Milwaukee RR’s popular conductors. She and two sons survive him. The Poughkeepsie paper says he had resided in that city about twelve years. Of his personal{i}ty it says:—“Mr. Brown was a member of the First Reformed Church, and in his life set forth the sincerity of his faith, and the many charms of a Christian character. He was an affable, well-informed man, whose friendship was treasured by all who enjoyed it."
