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