Case of Sarah Brown , No. 253.142


Page 72

On this eleventh day of November, 1887, at Seventy Six, County of Clinton, State of Kentucky, before me, W. H. Egleton a Special Examiner of the Pension Office, personally appeared John Stockton,~ who being by me first duly sworn to answer truly all interrogatories propounded to him during this Special Examination of aforesaid Pension Claim, deposes and says: his age is 82, P.O. as above, Occupation – Farming. No Service.

I never knew Millie Brown, “wife of Eli Brown”, until after they were married. But as to the time of their marriage I could not say. I could not tell you when it was that said Millie Brown died, although I made her coffin. I have no books to show when or about when it was that she died. I expect that she died somewhere in 1846 or 1847. But I am not positive about it. I never changed my memory with it but to the best of my recollection it was in 1846 or 1847.

I don’t know when it was that Eli Brown married his last wife Sarah and I don’t recollect when he died.

After the war I only saw said Eli brown a time or two.

I cannot remember of ever making an affidavit in the case of Sarah Brown.
