Her father and mother were members of the Moweaqua Methodist Church, to which they took their children and in which they took an active part.

They operated the Round Grove Farm, three miles east of Moweaqua, Illinois and to them was born four children, James Franklin, Malcolm Wayne, Eltha, and Charles Leslie. James died on February 3, 1895 and in 1899, she moved to Moweaqua. In 1903, she wed Martin Duncan, father of her daughter in-law Gwendolyn.
She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star of Moweaqua and of the Shelby County (Kuilka) chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Friendships in Moweaqua, Shelbyville, Saint Louis, and Urbana were important in her life.
For nearly a year in her failing health she lived with her daughter-in-law Gwendolin Stewart in Moweaqua and with her grandson and his wife, Wayne and Vera Stewart of Monticello. Her sickness was not accompanied with a great deal of pain and she was able to have lively conversation with her brothers and other family members to within a few hours of her death, which occurred March 31, 1948.

Biography -- (Findagrave.com):

"S. K. Brosius, one of the enterprising merchants of Knox County, is a native of Pennsylvania, and was born in 1833, and is a son of Benjamin Brosius, a native of Pennsylvania, and born in 1791. He was of German descent, and came to the State of Ohio in 1837, where he engaged in farming until his death, which occurred in 1866. Phoebe (Boothe) Brosius, the mother of our subject, was also a native of Pennsylvania, and was born in 1794, and died in 1869. Our subject accompanied his parents to Ohio, and lived with them until he was twenty-four years old, when he came to Illinois, and farmed there until 1865. He then came to Clark County, Mo., where he remained until 1881, or until he came to Greensburg Township, Knox County, and engaged in the mercantile business, which he has successfully followed ever since. In 1858 our subject was united in marriage to Mary Starr, daughter of James and Phoebe (Hillis) Starr. This union of our subject and wife was blessed with three daughters, viz.: Emma P., Lula B. and Anna M. Our subject has nine living brothers, three of whom are younger than himself. He is a stanch Republican, but has never sought or held political office, preferring the quiet of his home life to that of political worry and trouble. He commands a good trade, and is one of the enterprising and substantial citizens of Greensburg Township."
