OBITUARY: The Pulaski Citizen, Mar 21, 1928 - J. S. Brownlow

   Home sweet home.  How sweet and how pleasant it is to us when all things are well.  Often when I am alone I think of my youthful days and pleasantly I spent them.  But alas! death has entered and claimed one we loved.
   J. S. Brownlow was born Nov. 24, 1848, and married to Elizabeth Paisley Sept. 9, 1869, who survives.  To this union were born seven children, five boys and two daughters, L. B. Brownlow, Ethridge, Tenn., Erskine, John and William, of Prospect, Tenn., Mrs. J. M. Forsythe, Glendale, Tenn., one daughter and one son had already gone home to God.
   He has been a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Pleasant Hill over fifty years and was one of its strongest supporters, having served as elder a larger part of the time.
   He was made a Master Mason in which body he was a continuous member till death.  Mr. Brownlow's hospitality was unbounded and it was a great pleasure to be in his home.  He was extremely charitable to benevolence, always ready to lend a helping hand.
   Mr. Brownlow died March 10, 1928, age 79 years 3 months and 15 days and was interred in Pleasant Hill Cemetery (sic - now Stella Cemetery - see GCT Cem Bk, p.502) with Masonic honors in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives.  Rev. W. S. Marshall conducted the funeral services at the church.
