    Sarah Charlotte McWilliam, familiarly known as 'Lottie,' was a daughter of D. P. McWilliam of Milton, Wis. When she was born, July 18, 1880, the family lived at Grand Junction, Iowa. They continued to live there until Lottie was 20 years of age and had become a member of the Seventh Day Baptist church at that place.
    In the year 1901, the family moved to Milton.
    She was married to Riley Brown July 17, 1902. Mr. and Mrs. Brown lived for two years in Chicago, seven years in northern Wisconsin, and for the last fifteen years they had lived at Boy River, Minn., where Mrs. Brown died June 20, 1926. The body was brought to Milton where the funeral service was conducted at the home of her parents, by Pastor James L. Skaggs, on Wednesday afternoon, June 23, and burial was made in the Milton cemetery.
    Two daughters were born to Mr. and Mrs. Brown. One died in infancy. The other, Ora. L., was present with her father at the funeral.
    Mrs. Brown was one of a family of ten children and she is survived by eight: three brothers and five sisters. Two of the brothers, Ervin and Darwin, and a sister Clara, live near Milton. The other brother, Arthur, is at Tillamook, Ore. The other sisters are Belva, of Boy River, Minn.; Bertha, of Plainfield, N. J.; Ella, of Palo Alto, Calif.; and Moleta of Stoughton, Wis. Mrs. Brown is also survived by her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Davis, Milton, and by many other more distant relatives.
    She was known for her devotion to her family, for her consideration of friends and her kindness of heart. God's great world with its life and beauty held a great fascination for her. She is gone, but she will be affectionately remembered by those who have known and loved her.
