His obituary reads:
On Wednesday Jeremiah Brown, one of the most prominent and widely known residents of Fulton Township, died of heart disease, with which he had been afflicted for several years past. Mr. Brown was a representative of one of the oldest and most highly esteemed Quaker families in the state. At one time he held a heavy interest in the Peach Bottom slate quarries on both sides of the Susquehanna, besides being the owner of other valuable properties. During the financial troubles of a few years ago, however, he met with many reverses, by which the bulk of his fortune was swept away. His burial takes place tomorrow at Penn Hill.
