For twenty years a resident of Utica, Jerome M. Brown made many friends in this city who deeply regretted his death, which occurred October 15, 1909. He was a native of Oriskany and was born about 1871. He received his early education in the schools of Oriskany and continued at home until 1889. He then entered the employ of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railway Company with which he was identified as trainman during the remainder of his life, his long and uninterrupted period of service being convincing evidence of his faithfulness in the discharge of responsibilities and of the confidence reposed in him by the officers of the company.

Mr. Brown was married to Mrs. Emma Lester of Utica and to them one daughter, Gertrude, who is married to Henry G. Lux, Jr., was born. Mrs. Brown is a daughter of Robert Barker who was born in England and came to America in 1871, settling at Utica. He was an expert finisher and was employed in the woolen mills of this city, his death occurring March 17, 1907.

Mr. Brown of this review was a consistent member of St. Luke's church and also held membership in the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, having many close personal friends in that organization. He was highly popular on the road and was well known from one end of the line to the other as a genial, kind hearted and trustworthy man who could always be relied upon to extend a helping hand to one less fortunate than himself. His life was an exemplification of brotherly kindness and the memory of his cordial hand clasp and cheerful countenance will long remain in the minds of those with whom it was his pleasure to meet. Mrs. Brown makes her home in a comfortable residence at No. 5 Lansing street, Utica.
