From the Princeton Clarion, Princeton, Indiana Monday Evening, April
Thomas H. Brown
Mr. Thomas H.
Brown died at the home of his son, J.Y. Brown, Saturday afternoon, after a
protracted illness, incident to old age.
Brown was born in Ohio and had reached the advanced age of 90 years and two
months. He came to Indiana in 1818 and settled in Spencer county. He was
probably the oldest of those hardy pioneers who contributed so much of muscle
and brawn to convert the Indiana forests in to fertle
fields. In 1887 Mr. Brown came to Princeton to make his home. For a few years he maintained a home of his
own, but, as his infirmities increased in recent years, he has been living with
his son. His life has been an active one
and his name is honored among the people who knew him.
funeral services were held this morning at the residence of J.Y. Brown, after
which the remains were laid to rest in the Odd Fellow cemetery.
Note: Per the Gibson County health records, Book CH 30, page

1899. Cause of death was senility. Signed by R. G. Higgins.
