Arthur Willis Brown (aged 26) married Beatrice Helen Risser (aged 22) on Wednesday, 18 November 1914.
Beatrice Helen Risser, the daughter of Louis F. Risser and Mary Tangeman, was born on Wednesday, 7 September 1892 in Talmage, Otoe County, Nebraska. She died at the age of 86 in July 1979 in a nursing home, Bountiful, Utah. The cause of death was heart failure. She was buried in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Their children are:
Bea died just before 7 July 1979 (according to the airline tickets). Paula thinks August 1978.
AWB graduated from the Colorado School of Mines in 1913. (Check their records?)
According to RLB (July '88):
AWB was born 6 or 8 July 1888 in Kokomo, Indiana. (Selma said he died on his birthday, and that was 17 July, so we had listed 17 July 1888.) (And more recently, 1 July 1888 which agrees with the birth of a baby boy Brown in Kokomo. This boy is not Arthur Brown, unfortunately.) The current date comes from his own memory as recorded in a letter to Robert and Phyllis Brown.
