From the Chatsworth Plaindealer
MRS. SARAH L. BROCKWAY
AUGUST 5, 1910
The remains of the late Mrs. Sarah L. Brockway, whose death occurred on Friday last, July 29, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Laura Myers, at Montieth, Michigan, arrived in Chatsworth on Saturday evening. They were taken to the home of Mrs. Dora Bangs and the interment was at the Chatsworth cemetery on Sunday beside the remains of her husband, Truman Brockway. Dr. Frank Brockway, of Oshkosh, Wis., accompanied the remains here and was met her by Dr. Charles Brockway and the latter's son, Attorney Howard Brockway, both of Brookston, Ind. Short services were held at the house and grave by Rev. O.M. Dunlevy, pastor of the M.E. church, the funeral services having been held at Montieth.
Sarah L. Ewing was born May 13, 1840, in Livingston county, N.Y. She was married to Truman Brockway in November, 1858, and they came directly to Chatsworth, where Mr. Brockway erected the first house built in Chatsworth, a two-story frame building, on the lot where Hollywood and Mouritzen's meat market is now situated. The second story was the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Brockway, and on the first floor Mr. Brockway and Charles Brooks conducted a general store. They resided in Chatsworth until 1876, when they moved to a farm southeast of Chatsworth and later to the farm south of this city, where Chris Shafer now resides, and where they continued to reside until Mr. Brockway's death a number of years ago, since which time Mrs. Brockway had made her home with her children.
She was the mother of four children, all of whom survive her, namely: Dr. Charles T. Brockway, of Brookston, Ind.; Mrs. Laura Myers, of Montieth, Mich.; Mrs. Mary E. Breeze, of Yoeman, Ind.; Dr. Frank Brockway, of Oshkosh, Wis.
