There was no one to send after a physician and Mrs. Brower did what she could for her husband until death came to his relief.
    The funeral took place from the house at two o'clock on Sunday afternoon and from the Brick Church at Marlboro an hour later. The services were conducted by Rev. S. R. Cunningham of Colt's Neck. The internment was in the church graveyard.
