Case of Sarah Brown , No. 253.142


Page 24

On this fith 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 Dr. Asa M. Payne, 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 75, P. O. as above, Profession - Physician, No Service.

Before the war I knew Eli Brown for about 10 years and I treated his family but did not treat him any.

Prior to his going into the last war he appeared to be able bodied man and able to perform manual labor.

Somewhere about the beginning of 1868 was the first I ever treated Eli Brown that I recollect of. And at that time I treated him for Tuberculosis of the lungs, Mesenteries, (Intestinal Problems) and perhaps Enteritis. (Intestinal inflammation) I think I called upon him twice and the visits were not far apart. When I called upon him he was so he could not get up in bed, and I considered his case incurable and hopeless.

My information was that he died about May 24, 1869 and said information I received shortly after his death.

From what I saw of him when I called, and the condition that he was then in I think the Tuberculosis with the bowel trouble was the cause of his death. The Tuberculosis was

the principle disease and was in an aggravated form sufficient to cause his death without any other trouble, but the bowel trouble shortened his days some, as the same had a tendency to weaken him.

My dates of treatment before the war I took from my books but all other dates are taken or given from memory, as after the war I never kept any books.

I don’t remember that I was present at the wedding of Sarah and Eli Brown, and I don’t remember when they were married. And I have no records to refer to that would give me any information on the subject. I am not related to client and am not interested in the case.

I have testified in the case before and the signatures are genuine.

Q: Have you testified in the case before and are your answers to them correctly recorded in this deposition?

A: Yes Sir.


Asa M. Payne

Sworn to and subscribed before me this fifth day of November 1887, and I certify that
the contents were fully made known to deponent before signing.

W. H.Egleton
Special Examiner.
