Biography of Eugene Brown
Madison County, NY Biographies





Brown, Eugene, p. o. Eaton, was born in Eaton, May 5, 1842, and was the son of John and the grandson of Capt. Chad Brown, the latter one of the pioneers of the region, who is mentioned elsewhere in this work. Eugene was brought up on the farm, and on August 5, 1862, enlisted in Co. D, 114th N. Y. Vols., serving until June 8, 1865, when he was mustered out as corporal. He was wounded at Port Hudson, but after a few months in the hospital he rejoined his regiment. After his military service Mr. Brown spent two years in Illinois, then returned to Eaton and in 1871 purchased the village creamery of Avery & Wadsworth, of which he was the owner and successful proprietor until the spring of 1898. In his business life and endeavors Mr. Brown has been abundantly successful, a result due entirely to his own personal effort and industry. In politics he is a Democrat and has occasionally been the candidate of his party for town office. In 1869 Mr. Brown married Delia A., daughter of Adon Brown of Eaton.
