BROOKSIDE, located on Brown road, four miles from Lavanna, six from Aurora, and eleven from Auburn, contains one hundred and forty one acres owned by Leeper Gray, postoffice address, Union Springs, R. F. D., No. 10. Dairying is the principal industry conducted at "Brookside," the butter being of high grade and supplied to private families in Auburn, as well as the local markets. The soil is adapted to mixed farming and the raising of sheep and swine. Small fruits grow in great variety, and there is a fine apple orchard of three acres. The buildings are all in good condition, and the well shaded lawn, with its shrubs and flowers, lends an attractiveness to the home. The water supply from wells to the house and barn, by windmill power, is ample for the farm's needs and there is a grove of hardwood timber. Z. Hoxie was a previous owner, who sold to Christopher Brown, and from him to Leeper Gray in 1883, who has since resided here. He was married in 1880 to Miss Mary. S. Brown. They have one son, Irwin B. Gray.
