On this 7th day of November, 1887, at Albany, County of Clinton, State of Kentucky, before me, W. H. Egleton a Special Examiner of the Pension Office, personally appeared David Stockton, ~ who being by me first duly sworn to answer truly all interrogatories propounded to his during this Special Examination of aforesaid Pension Claim, deposes and says: his age is 62, P. O. as above, Occupation - Farming, No service.

I knew Eli Brown from the time I was about 15 years of age.

When his wife, Millie, died I was living about 1 ½ miles from him. I think she died in 1847 or 1848.

I was married in 1850 and she, “Millie Brown”, died 2 or 3 years before said marriage took place.

I could say positively what year it was and as to the month I have not the slightest recollection.

I don’t know when Eli Brown married “Sarah”, his 2nd wife.

After the war I lived about 10 miles from Eli Brown and I knew very little about him. I could not say what his condition was when he died or the cause of his death.

I am not related to the client and am not interested or biased in the
