Biography of E. A. Brown
Tompkins County, NY Biographies





Brown, E. A., of Newfield, was born here January 15, 1845. Holden Brown, his father, was also a native of this town, born September 25, 1812, and he was a son of Abraham Brown, a native of Pennsylvania, who came to Newfield in 1820, when the locality was a wilderness. He took up and cleared about 250 acres, and here he lived in a log house for the first years of his life in the new settlement. Holden married Margaret Crawford and had ten children, of whom our subject was the fourth. The latter worked on the farm until twenty seven years old, when he married Mary La Barre, of this town, a daughter of Richard La Barre, and they are the parents of four children: Hattie, Edna, Blanch, and Walter, the son being deceased. Hattie is now a student at the Brockport Normal School, and the others are at the graded schools of Newfield. Mr. and Mrs. Brown are members of the Presbyterian church, and of the Patrons of Husbandry.
