Mrs. Ellen Brown Ė Ellen Leckey was born in Queens county, New Brunswick, Canada, October 14, 1844, where she was married to G. G. Brown, December 25, 1866.

After four years they moved to the United States, living in Madison county, Iowa, fourteen years, since which time they have lived in Antelope county, Nebraska, near Neligh, where she died October 29, 1890, being 46 years of age. She leaves a husband and six children to mourn her departure.

In 1876, Mrs. Brown was converted in Patterson, Madison county, Iowa and became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church of which she has been a consistent member ever since. Herís has truly been a Christian life, devoted to the service of the Master. None knew her but to respect her noble and generous character.

Last April she partially lost her eyesight and since that time she has been a great sufferer, being greatly afflicted. She has been constantly under the care of physicians, who have done all in the power of human skill for the recovery of health and sight, but without avail.
