The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, January 14, 1909

MRS. RACHEL BREWER was a native of Ohio, beholding the light of day in that
state over eighty years ago. She was the mother of nine children, eight of
whom are living. Her husband, WM. BREWER, died about twenty years ago.

Those living are, W.E. BREWER, of Cedar Township, FLORA, who resides at home MARY of Quuincy, Ill., SIMON, of Auburn, Nebr., MRS. DR. CAMPBELL, of Omaha JOHN and HENRY, of Oregon, and one daughter at Danville, Ill., all being
with her during her recent illness but the latter.

She resided in this county in Whitebreast Township, for over seventeen years
and her many friends and neighbors can testify to the high esteem in which
she was held. She was a good Christian woman and was always ready to lend a
helping hand to those in need or to administer to those in sickness or
trouble. Her memory will ever be cherished by those who knew her. She had
been a resident of Indianola for the past few years, where she died Saturday
morning, after an illness of several months with paralysis.

Funeral services were held at that place Sunday afternoon, at three o'clock,
and the remains brought to Chariton, Monday morning, and interred in the
Waynick Cemetery beside her husband.
