Case of Sarah Brown , No. 253.142


Page 7

On this 30th day of October, 1887, at Seventy Six, County of Clinton, State of Kentucky, before me, W. H. Egleton a Special Examiner of the Pension Office, personally appeared Sarah Brown ~, who being by me first duly sworn to answer truly all interrogatories propounded to her during this Special Examination of aforesaid Pension Claim, deposes and says: her age is 67, her P. O. address is, Seventy Six, Clinton Co. Ky. I am the widow of Eli Brown who was a member of C – 13 Ky. Cavalry.

I don’t remember when Eli Brown, “my husband”, came out of the Army, when he came from the Army he was suffering from lung disease, I reckon, he had a mighty bad cough, and he said he got it while he was in the Army, but when it was or at what place, I don’t know. And I don’t recollect that he ever told me. He just told me that he got it while he was in the Army.

When he first came home from the Army he was complaining of a weakness in his breasts and he had a cough and he had the same up till he died. He died in 1869 or 1870. The date and year I can’t tell exactly. He died from lung disease I reckoned. Tell when I married Eli Brown? No, I can’t tell when I was married to him. My first husband

died in October but I don’t know what year it was.

I don’t know when Eli Brown’s first wife died.

By Eli Brown, I had 4 children:

1st Relsey (Seralda) Brown girl born April 9th 1851
2nd W.A. (William) Brown boy born Oct. 29th 1852
3rd Susan (Susanah) Brown girl born June 2nd 1854
4th Matilda Brown girl born Sept. 15th 1857

And all of said children are now alive.

To show the condition of my husband “Eli Brown” from the time he came out of the Army until he died, I will refer you to W. S. Taylor, G. H. Piercey, (James) Taylor Polston, John Petty and John Andrews.

Dr. Asa Payne and his wife can give the date of my marriage to Eli Brown.

Cynthia Stearns and Mrs. Temprance Marlow could tell the dates of the birth of my children for they were present. And Sarah Mogg was there when Matilda was born. There was others present too but they are dead.

I could not tell you who was in the Army with him. No, of course I couldn’t.

I don’t care about being around when the testimony is being taken and don’t want any lawyers neither. I have understood your questions and you have put my answers to them down there allright.
