Mrs. M.E. Brown

Wife of Bro. M.D. Brown, died at her home in Charleston, Arkansas March 12th, 1891; of lung disease. She was the daughter of Larkin and Eliza Collins. She professed religion and joined Hephzibah church in Mississippi, and was baptized by Eld. Florum of Alabama when she was nineteen years old. She moved to Arkansas with her parents in 1857; was married to Capt. M.D. Brown 1862, in Benton, Saline county, Arkansas. She moved to Charleston, in Franklin county; united with the Charleston church where she remained until the day of her death. Sister brown was fifty-one years four months and twelve days old. She was a consecrated Christian woman, always ready to help the poor and distressed. She was perfectly willing to die, her only regrets was leaving her husband and three children, together with a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her loss. Sister Brown will be missed by the church, but none will miss her as much as the pastor, but we bow with submission, believing her rest is sweet.
 Sleep on my dearest one,
In paradise take thy rest,
When the dead in Christ shall come,
Will meet you with the blest.
