On this 4 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 Joseph Agee ~, 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 42 P. O. Creelsboro, Russell Co. Ky. Occupation - Farmer. Was private of Co. H 13 Ky. Cavalry.

I knew Eli Brown for some time before the last war and I worked for and with him some. And he was a stout able - bodied man.

At Camp Nelson, Ky. in Dec. 1864 he “Eli Brown” was suffering from a might bad cough. Spitting up a good deal of phlegm, and he appeared to be suffering from a lung trouble.

He went to the hospital at Camp Nelson, Ky. about the time of our M. O., which was Jan. 1, of 1865. When we left there and came home he was still in the hospital. He came home in not a great while after we did, but just how long it was I could not say.

Upon his return home from the Army he was still suffering from a cough and not able to do much. Up till the time of his death. I live about 8 miles

from him but would see him about once a month and sometimes oftener and all the time he appeared weakly and not able to do much, still he did do some work, but he seemed to be doing the same in misery. I understood that lung disease was the cause of his death. He died in May 1869, but the day of the month I am not positive about, but I believe it was the 24th or near that date. I don’t know the date of birth of any of the children of client’s date of her marriage to Eli Brown.

Date of death of clients former husband or date of death of former wife of Eli Brown.

I am a son of the client’s but I am not interested in the case.

I made an affidavit in the case before and C. L. Holsapple swore me to the same.

I have understood the questions asked me and my answers to them have been correctly recorded in this deposition.
