Mrs. J. Murray Brown

Concord Enterprise

"Among the passengers o the Titanic was Mrs. J. Murray Brown, widow of the late J. Murray Brown, and mother of Mrs. George S. Keyes of Concord.
Mrs. Brown went to England in the early part of March, accompanied by her sisters, Mrs. E. D. Appleton and Mrs. Robert Cornell, both of New York city. They were called abroad by the ilness of their sister, Lady Lilly Drummond, the wife of the late Sir Charles Drummond. Lady Drummond, it will be remembered, died shortly after.
Immediately on lerning of the terrible disaster two sons of Mrs. Brown, Murray Brown of Acton and his brother from Boxboro left, one for New York and the other for Halifax, so as to meet their mother at whichever port she landed.
According to the printed lists, Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Appleton were rescued and are passengers on the Carpathia. No record, however, is there of Mrs. Cornell, who is the widow of Judge Cornell of New York. Mrs. Brown, who as stated above was the widow of the late J. Murray Brown of the publishing house of Little, Brown & Co., was a resident of Belmont and had a summer home in East Acton. She was a frequent visitor in Concord."
