VETERAN OF TWO WARS IS DEAD
George W. Brannan, Soldier of Mexican and Civil Conflicts Dies.

George W. Brannan, one of Minnesota's earliest settlers, died yesterday morning of heart failure, at the home of his only daughter, Mrs. Margaret Esh, 570 Wabasha Street.

Mr. Brannon was born in Dayton, Ohio, in 1828. In 1846, upon the opening of the Mexican war, he enlisted in the United States army, but on account of his youth his parents obtained his immediate discharge. A month afterward he again enlisted and succeeded in getting to the front. He served through all the Mexican war and at its close, in I848, was sent to Fort Snelling. There he was married in 1850 to Mrs. Isabelle Courtney.

Upon the declaration of war in 1861 he enlisted in the Sixth Minnesota volunteers and served through the entire Civil war, becoming first sergeant of Company A, and upon receiving his honorable discharge in 1865 returned to his family in Minnesota.

He then engaged in the sale of farm implements, which proved to be his life work.

Among Mr. Brannan's many collections of war relics his most cherished was composed of the badges of all the Decoration days observed in the state of Minnesota up to 1902.

He is survived by his two children, James Brannan and Mrs. Esh, 570 Wabasha street. Mrs. Brannan died eight years ago.

He will be buried from the First M. E. church on Friday, at 2 o'clock, in Oakland cemetery.
