Case of Sarah Brown , No. 253.142


Page 40

On this 5th 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 G.B. Brown ~, 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 64, P. O. as above, Occupation - Farmer, No Service.

I am a brother of Sarah Brown, the client in this case. And her husband, Eli Brown, I knew from my boyhood.

I was at the marriage of Eli and Sarah Brown and they were married by Absolem Davis in June 1850. They were married while a protracted meeting was going on and that took place or began the first Sunday in the month and lasted about one week and during that meeting they were married.

They were married somewhere between the 5 and the 15 of the month but the exact date I could not give. I have no records whatever to go by in the matter but the whole thing I give you from memory.

I don’t know the date of Eli Brown’s first wife’s death nor can I tell you when it was that he died.

I cannot give the date of birth of any of client’s children.

Although the claimant is my sister I am not interested or biased in the case. I have testified in the case before and the signature is genuine.

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

A: Yes Sir.



Green B. Brown
