Case of Sarah Brown , No. 253.142


Page 62

On this 8th 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 J.V.H. Petty,~ 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 56, P. O. Seventy Six, Clinton County, Ky., Occupation - Farmer. Was Corporal of Co. H, 3 Ky. Infantry.

I knew Eli Brown for about 2 years immediately prior to his death. And during that time I lived between ½ and ¾ of a mile of him and saw him very frequently.

All the time I knew him he was complaining a good deal and he had a bad cough too.

I could not tell you how long he was confined to his bed prior to his death. During his confinement I went to see him after and during that time. He complained of his breast and he had a mighty bad cough at times. He died sometime in May 1869, but the date I could not tell you. I think Claborn Brown says it was about the 29th of May.

The cause of his death, I think, was said to be caused by cold taken while lying out while he was in the Army.
