Page 22

On this 5th day of November, 1887, at Cumberland City, County of Clinton, State of Kentucky, before me, W. H. Egleton a Special Examiner of the Pension Office, personally appeared William Burchett,~ 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 66, P. O. as above, Occupation - Farmer, No Service.

I was not present at the wedding of Eli and Sarah Brown, but I was at the house a few months after they were married and Mr. Beck or Davis was the man that married them.

I cannot remember what year it was that they were married and I cannot remember the month or day of the month and I have nothing to refer to that would give me the date or refresh my memory on the subject.

I was not present when Eli Brown died but I was there the next morning or next day and helped put the last clothing on him. But I have forgotten what year or month it was that he died in.

I have forgotten when Eli Brown’s first wife died. And I have forgotten how long she had been dead when Eli married his last wife.

I am not sure whether I made an affidavit in the case or not but I think I did. Sam Mackey came here in the night to get me to make one.

Q: Was that affidavit read to you before you made your mark to the same?

A: I don’t remember.

Q: In that affidavit you state Eli and Sarah Brown were married on or about June 9th 1850. Did you make such a statement as that?

A: I don’t know whether I did or not.

Q: Are you in the habit of making your mark to papers and not know their contents?

A: Not if I know it.

Q: Have you understood the questions asked you and are your answers to them correctly recorded in this deposition?

A: Yes Sir that is correct.
