Hi - can anyone shed any light over the grave of this Sunderland man at Palacios graveyard?

The grave is marked:
Resting place of George Brown
Born Sunderland, England
Born September 1, 1832
Death May 31, 1909

I don't suppose anyone out there knows how or why George died in Palacios - 5,000 miles from home in 1909. Research suggests he was a mariner, but at 79 he was quite old to still be sailing the world at that time.

Any help appreciated!
