FREEMAN W. BROWN, INDIAN WAR VETERAN
PASSED AWAY IN TACOMA
Freeman Whitcomb Brown, 84 years old, veteran of the Puget Sound Indian Wars of '56 and '57, veteran of the Civil War, and teacher of the first school in Olympia, died at the Tacoma General Hospital Tuesday.
Mr. Brown was one of the best known of the older pioneers of the Puget Sound Country. He came 'round the Horn in '53, mined gold in California, lived in Oregon, came to Washington territory to fight Indians, and explored many of the then new sections of Western and Central Oregon, having been one of the first to explore the Lake Chelan Country
He made his home in this city until about 20 years ago, practicing his profession of civil engineering, and had many friends among the old timers here.
