Capt. George B. Brown, aged eight-five years, died at the home of his only sister,
Mrs. E. J. Martin, in Dallas, Tex., after an illness of a few days. He was a Christian
gentleman of the old school-kind, gentle, quiet, loving, patient, helpful, and
intelligent. He never married, making his home with his only sister, whom he
reverenced and loved devotedly. One of his favorite themes was his experience in the
War between the States in which he was several times wounded. Captain Brown was
born in 1838, near Kingston, in the old Colonial home at South West Point inherited
by his mother and which had been in the family for over one hundred years. At the
age of twenty-one he went to Texas, and in that State enlisted for the South at the
outbreak of war. His father was a general in the war of 1812. Captain Brown enlisted

1, 1861; mustered into service September 10, 1861; commissioned first lieutenant on
the 1st of June, 1862; made captain in August, 1863; paroled at Jackson, Miss., May
