Mr. Joe F. Brown died at his home at Central with pneumonia on Feb. 24, 1926 age 53 years, 8 months and 15 days. He was a native of Lauderdale County, having lived here all his life. He is survived by his wife, four daughters, one sister, and an aged father. Funeral services were held at Grace Church by Dr. L.O. Leavell. Mr. Brown's death was a great shock to his friends and loved ones, as he was only sick a few days. He was highly esteemed in his home community as well as in Ripley where he had many friends. Although he seemed to know the end was near, he bore his suffering well and did not fear death. The sympathy of the community goes out to his heart-broken family. We lay our tribute of reverence tenderly knowing we cannot forget him but we have lost a friend.
