Death was caused by pernicious anaemia (sic), with which she had been sick two weeks. Mrs. Brown's maiden name was Fickett. She was born near Matawan on what is known as the Burkholm farm. On December 31st, 1846, she married Warren Brown, who lived near Beer's hill in Holmdel township. The day of her funeral was the 54th anniversary of her marriage. For a number of years after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Brown lived at Matawan, Mr. Brown being engaged as a contractor and builder.

Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Brown, only three of whom are living. Those living are Edward I. Brown of Matawan and Mrs. H. B. Johnson and Mrs. E. F. Tiffany of Ocean Grove.
