Mr. R.F. Browne died at his residence on Gospel Hill. For nearly a year he has been struggling with that terrible destroyer
Consumption. He was taken sick at the Healing Springs last Summer. He came home in August. He commenced teaching school
last fall at Eastham. His health was so bad, he only taught school nine days. He was a member of the First Baptist Church,
also a member of the choir; but his voice will be heard in this earthly choir no more but in heaven. We hope to hear him
again around the throne of God. He was liked by all who knew him. He was a member of the 3 V. club. We extend to the family
our heart-felt sympathy. He leaves a mother, father and brother to mourn their loss. His funeral took place this afternoon
from 1st Baptist Church.
