Born 1825, Kentucky
Sarah Brunk was married to Joseph Brown in Brown County, Illinois, on 20 July 1850. In 1860 the family was living in Bourbon, Kansas Territory and after that in Cowley KS. Although advanced in years, Sarah and Joseph were in Guthrie in 1890, apparently accompanying their sons Abraham and Jacob to the land run. Both Abraham and Jacob owned land in nearby McKinley Township in 1903.
Joseph Brown died in 1903 and Sarah two years later. At that time they were probably living with their son Abraham, who remained on his land until at least 1930. Given that Sarah died two years after her husband and was living near this cemetery, she is surely buried beside him and his fine stone (the largest and best preserved in the cemetery).
For the children of Sarah and Joseph Brown, see his page, which follows this one.
Sarah has no stone of her own, or at least none has been discovered.
