James Casey Brown

Pub: Times, March 13, 1930

James Casey Brown, son of Carroll and Frankie Brown, was born in Hamilton County, Illinois, January 3, 1859; departed this life March 4, 1930.  Aged 71 years, 1 month and 4 days.

He was married to Martha Priscilla Boezkiewicz in October, 1888, who preceded him in death December 20, 1921.  To this union, nine children were born, namely: Palmer of Alton, Ill,; Arlon Johns of Buckner, Ill.; Troy of Galatia, Ill.; Paul of Eagle River, Wis.; Bryan of Cincinnati, Ohio; Audrey of Alton, Ill.; Alex, who resides with him; Margaret Estes of Harrisburg, Ill.; and one son who died in infancy.

The deceased united with the Primitive Baptist Church at Rector in 1922.  He was a man who stood for the right, and always dealt with his fellowman honestly.  The children will miss Uncle Casey because he always had a love for them.

He leaves to mourn their loss, eight children, fifteen grandchildren, one brother, Richard of Detroit, Mich., four sisters, Margaret Hall of Galatia, Ill.; Alice Pulliam of Broughton, Ill.; Jamie Roberts of Lake City, Ark.; Melvina Smith of Broughton, Ill.; one uncle, W. C. Lamkin of Thompsonville, Ill., besides a host of other relatives and friends.

Our loss is his eternal gain.  We weep not as those who have no hope.  His will be done.

Funeral services were held at Rector, conducted by Elder T. E. Hopper.  Interment at Rector cemetery, Thursday, March 6.
