Sidney McGill Brown

Mr. Sidney McGill Brown of the Cedar Swamp section died last Tuesday morning and was buried near Cedar Swamp church, Rev. J.E. Dunlop, officiating at the funeral services. Mr. Brown was born in the Boggy Swamp section in 1850 and was therefore in the 48th year of his age. He was married in 1873 to Miss Crawford Tisdale, a daughter of Mr. W.D. Tisdale, who with six children survive him. Mr. Brown was at the time of his death a magistrate and bore the reputation of being a fair, impartial officer. While Mr. Brown had been sick for some time, his death was very sudden.
The County Record, May 13, 1897
