Meagsville, January 5th
On last Saturday night death's messenger visited the quiet and peaceful home of our neighbor and friend, Geo. W. Brown and called from earth a long and much revered father, husband and brother, a good neighbor and a highly respected citizen. With his bereaved wife, children, sisters, relatives we heartily sympathize in mourning their loss.
