Biography of Melville B. C. Brown of Bergan, NY

Melville B. C. Brown, son of Richard G Brown, was also born in the log cabin on lot 110, November 7, 1833, and was educated in the common schools and early taught industrious habits. January 25, 1877, he married Mrs. Amy (Merrill) Brown, widow of his brother George C., and brought his wife to the homestead, which he was conducting. In April, 1877, he purchased the farm of his father, which has been his home from his birth. Mr. Brown is a good farmer, and gives his whole attention to the cultivation of his fine farm of 155 acres. He is an extensive reader, a close observer, and has acquired a fund of practical information.

Mr. Brown was raised a Democrat, voted for Millard Fillmore in 1856 and for Abraham Lincoln in 1860, and remained a thorough Republican until 1888, when his temperance principles induced him to join the ranks of the Prohibitionists.
