Brown, George N. One of the foremost and best known insurance men of Watertown is Mr. George N. Brown. He was 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; among them are the Remington Paper Co., the Watertown Spring Wagon and the New York Air Brake Co. In 1896 he embarked in business for himself, representing some of the strongest insurance and loan associations in the country; the Mutual Life Insurance Co. of New York, the Rochester Saving and Loan Association, and the U. S. Casualty Co. Mr. Brown was married May 23, 1888, to Sadie J. Phillips, daughter of Augustus J. Phillips of Watertown, N. Y. Mr. Brown is a prominent member of most all the lodges and social clubs in his city, and is a public spirited citizen, full of devotion to the interests of the city in which he is so well known and which esteems him so highly. Mr. Brown is emphatically "a man to swear by."
