Obituary- West Wyalong Advocate

14th September 1906

 

Mr John Brown

 

We have also to record the death of Mr John Brown aged 88 years which event occurred in the local hospital on Wednesday evening. The deceased was an old resident of this and the Temora District, and leaves a family of grown up sons and daughters.

 

The deceased was said to have been a B.A. and had in his younger days some strange and exciting experiences while fighting under the British flag. He received wounds which in after years, and especially of late, practically prevented him from getting about without assistance.

 

His experiences as often related by an old warrior, were very interesting, and only goes to show the ups and downs there is in the vicissitudes of this short life.

 

The funeral took place on Thursday evening, the remains being interred in the C of E portion of the local cemetery.

 

The Rev. Oldham officiated at the graveside. Mr Mills carried out the funeral arrangements in his usual capable manner. We extend our sympathy to the relatives of the deceased.

LATE ABRAHAM BROWN WAS PIONEER RESIDENT

 

The late Mr. Abraham Brown whose death occurred in the District Hospital on August 5 was one of the best known personalities of the town and a pioneer resident.

 

He was 76 years of age at the time of his death and came to Temora when a mere lad, together with his mother and father and their family of ten.

 

After a short time completing his schooling at the first Temora school, which was then situated in tents, located approximately where the railway station is at present, the late Mr. Brown joined his father in his business of carting mine tailings and running a wood yard.

 

As a youth he went to work on the Clear Hills property of the late My Heffernan, where he stayed many years and earned a reputation as a good horsemen and delighted in breaking in young horses. 49 years ago when the West Wyalong goldfields were at their zenith, Mr Brown went across there and took on mining. He joined was to become his great lifetime devotion, the Salvation Army.

 

From West Wyalong, he went to New Zealand with a team of horses and stayed there for a couple of years before returning to the Temora district, where in 1905 he married Miss Hannah Egan and settled down on the property Rodey Farm, where he engaged in farming pursuits for the rest of his life.

 

There were 2 children of the first marriage Jack and Max and both children still have their homes in the district.

 

He suffered a tragic loss in the death of his wife when his 2 children were young boys. Both Mr and Mrs Brown were stricken with pneumonia and his wife did not recover.

 

Some years after he married a second time to Adjutant Davies of the Salvation Army but after only 2 years she was stricken with cancer and passed away. There were no children of this marriage.

 

His third marriage was to Mary McNally who together with 2 sons and a daughter survives him. They are William, Bruce and Marie.

 

The 2 sisters Mrs SE Fletcher (Bexley) and Mrs E Royal (Wyalong) and 2 brothers Isaac (Temora) and Jacob (Wyalong) survive the family of 10.

 

It is noteworthy that nearly all the members of the family bore biblical names, boys being christened Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Samuel and Joseph. This was indicative of the god fearing family in which they were raised.

 

The father John Brown was a devout member of the Church of England and a keen student of the bible. It was his claim that he could memorise the bible and quote any chapter.

 

This religious fervour he handed down to his son Abraham who for almost 50 years up till the time of his death was a devout Salvationist and foundation member of the Temora corps. As envoy Brown he was one of the best known figures in the Salvation Army where for many years he was the backbone of the corps. His cheery voice and fine testimony being always evident particularly at the open air meetings. He held the position of corps sergeant major, the chief position in the local corps and was foundation member of the band. At the completion of 25 years of service he had the long service order conferred on him and had several other bars added for the many other years of devoted service.

 

One of the many Christian services carried out was his hospital visitations. Never a Sunday passed without he appeared at the hospital with a cheery word for the sick and a word of encouragement whether he knew them or not.

 

Another Christian service was his regular Sunday School classes conducted during the Depression years at Tin Town where he gathered small boys and girls from the tin shanties and conducted an open air Sunday School on the logs.

 

A kind and gentle and sympathetic disposition, his acts of generosity to those in need or sorrow were legend. The poor people of Temora were his special care.

 

Always taking pride in his good health his end came suddenly. He was indisposed at home for a few days before going to the District Hospital where his heart weakened, he failed to rally and passed away on Thursday afternoon.

 

The many friends who congregated at the Salvation Army Citadel to pay their tribute at the funeral service testified to the goodwill and friendship enjoyed by the late Mr Brown during his very full and peaceful life.

 

The service was conducted by Captain Wilson OC of the Temora Corps of the Salvation Army who also officiated at the graveside. John Birney had charge of the arrangements.

 

The pallbearers were Mssrs A Brown, B Brown, A Brown, J Egan, Keith Egan, D Egan. The flower tray was carried by Mssrs Ted Oliver and Kevin Egan. 

 

The War Cry 19 June 1937

 Temora Veteran

 

Envoy Abe Brown, a warrior Salvationist who revelled in Temora Jubilee celebrations. One of the early day converts, he has done much to build up the corps. He was for many years Corps-sergeant Major until his son, Max, took over his position. He was founder of the band and was the first bandmaster.

 

Promoted to Glory- The War Cry 7 December 1946

 

Envoy Abe Brown at the age of 76 has received the home call from Temora. One of the best known comrades in the district, most of his life had been spent in the Army. For many years he was well known among the country people for his collecting for the harvest festival and self-denial. An enthusiastic bandsman he never missed an open air meeting while in health. He was welcome visitor to the sick both in private and public hospitals. He entered hospital a week prior to his passing and at his promotion left a bright testimony. The Citadel was crowded both for the funeral and memorial services, a large number being at the graveside. Captain Wilson spoke on a text used by Envoy Brown at the last open air gathering before his illness. Brother E King also spoke. Deep sympathy is extended to Mrs Brown, their sons and their daughter.
