Mahala A. Brown, the youngest daughter of A. D. and Mary F. Brown, of Liberty Township, was born October 7th, 1876. The few happy years of her life were spent in Warren County, where she merited the respect of everyone. In September she was stricken with disease and since that time had been a constant sufferer, yet she was patient and enduring, and when at last the Holy Spirit like a dove, descended and wafted her away to that mysterious realm, she was prepared. Her peace was made with God, and when the summons came she approached the grave like one who wraps the drapery of their couch about them and lies down to pleasant dreams. Hallie's sweet disposition and lovable manner caused her to be a favorite among her many friends and the pleasant memories that linger with us are those of happiness. To know her was to love her. She leaves her parents, a sister and one brother and a host of friends to mourn the loss of one so dear. Deceased was born in this county October 7th, 1876, and died Saturday morning, May 27th, 1899, aged 22 years, 7 months and 22 days. The funeral discourse was preached by Rev. L. C. Bentley of this place at the home of the bereaved family in Liberty Township Monday morning at 10 o'clock, May 29th, 1899, and interment was made in Riverside Cemetery at Attica. The attendance of relatives and neighbors was very large, in fact it was one of the largest ever held in the county. The pallbeareres were six young lady friends of the departed; each dressed in white, who bore the beautiful casket unassisted. They were: Misses Etta Tricky, Bertha Simmerman, Lula Warbritton, Blanche Mulkins, Myra Smith and Grace Bartley. Mrs. Ellen Neal, aged 60 years, living at the home of M. A. McDonald, in Liberty Township, was taken a few days ago with hemorrhage from which she died last Sunday. The body was sent from West Lebanon to Indianapolis last Monday morning for interment.
