Brown, G. W., was born in Ontario, Canada, but came to the United States when thirteen years of age. In 1892 he started his boat manufacturing and boat livery business; he builds all his own boats and has the leading boat livery in Clayton. He keeps for hire yachts, cat boats, skiffs and canoes, keeping in all fifty to sixty boats. His boat livery is opposite the Windsor Hotel in Clayton, and is the popular headquarters for anglers and all lovers of boating. Mr. Brown is a practical boat builder and learned his trade with the St. Lawrence Skiff Company. He is a member of the Foresters and Odd Fellows. Mr. Brown married Minnie D. Porter, daughter of Pitt C. Porter, and they have one son, Millard F.
