1875 - 1915

Paulina HAUN, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John HAUN, was born in Germany, Jan. 1, 1875. When a babe, her parents and family removed to this country and settled in this vicinity. On Jan. 4, 1899, she was united in marriage with Ira BROWN and except two years of life on the farm they have resided in Henry since their marriage. Two children were born to this union, a son now 6 years old and a daughter, 3 years of age. For about three years she has been in failing health, the end seeming inevitable to her relatives and friends. For when once the great white plague, tuberculosis, attacks there is no avoidance. On Friday, April 23, the great change took place and she exchanged time for eternity. The funeral was from St. Mary's church, Rev. GENSLER officiating, on Monday morning at 9 o'clock, April 26. Interment in Henry cemetery.
