Biography of Charles E. Brown
Washington County, IA Biographies





Charles E. Brown, who is successfully and energetically carrying on farming and stockraising on his well improved and attractive farm of eighty acres on section 24, Jackson township, was born in Washington county, Iowa, on the 24th of August, 1871, his parents being W. E. and Martha Brown. He attended the common schools in the acquirement of an education and remained at home with his parents until he had attained his majority. Subsequently he operated a rented farm for six years, at the end of which time, by careful expenditure and close economy, he had accumulated sufficient capital to enable him to purchase his present place of eighty acres on section 24, Jackson township. As the years have gone by he has brought the property under a high state of cultivation and improvement and in addition to growing the cereals best adapted to soil and climate, he makes a specialty of raising and feeding stock, both brandies of his business proving a good source of remuneration to him.

On the 25th of March, 1896, was celebrated the marriage of Mr. Brown and Miss Anna B. Pearson, whose birth occurred in Washington county, December 25, 1869, her parents being Abram and Julia Pearson. A sketch of her father is given on another page of this volume. Mrs. Brown is a graduate of Washington Academy and prior to her marriage taught school for several years. She is now the mother of three children, namely: Lloyd P., who was born December 21, 1897; Donald E., whose birth occurred October 27, 1901; and Lois Hazel, whose natal day was March 10, 1903.

Mr. Brown gives his political allegiance to the democracy and is now serving as school treasurer. Fraternally he is connected with lodge No. 868, M. W. A., at Washington, Iowa. His religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Methodist Episcopal church at Washington, with which his wife is also identified. They are widely and favorably known throughout the county in which they have spent their entire lives and are numbered among its substantial, representative and worthy residents.
