born in that city May 2, 1862, and after finishing his college education in Chicago he accepted a position in that
city with the Chicago Wire and Iron Works, holding same for one year; he then returned to Watertown and has since
made that his home. He has held the position as bookkeeper for some of the largest manufacturing concerns in Watertown;

Brown was married May 23, 1888, to Sadie J. Phillips, daughter of Augustus J. Phillips of Watertown, N. Y. Mr.
