A deep gloom spread over the community Sunday morning, October 28, as the sad intelligence was passed from house to house that the spirit of Adelbert M. Brown had been wafted to its home above. He had been ailing for some months, but had been able to be out nearly all the time, even to the day before his death. Although the doctor told him early in the summer he could give him only a furlough, yet he bore himself with fortitude and cheerfulness, ever mindful of those who cared for him. He was a faithful member of the M. E. church and a true Christian, having made a profession a number of years ago. He enlisted when only seventeen years old in the 10th New York Heavy Artillery and served during the last three years of the war, taking part in all the hard fought battles that led to the surrender of General Lee, and was mustered out in July 1865. The funeral services were conducted Tuesday, Rev. C. H. Guile officiating. The remains were laid to rest in Pulaski cemetery, there to await resurrection morn.
