William Brown was born January 1, 1833 in Orange Co., IN and is one of the following family born to C. R. and Malinda (Lee) Brown, who were natives of Tennessee: Sarah, Ransom R., William A.R. and Aaron. His early life to manhood was passed in attending school and assisting his parents in the duties devolving upon them, and May 4, 1856 he was united in matrimony with Miss Jane Dalton, a daughter of Bradley and Nancy (Neal) Dalton, who were natives of the Old Dominion. These children were born to this union: Lillie A., James P., Cam R., Willie, Charley and Richard W. The parents have been singularly unfortunate for out of their household of children only Richard W., who was born March 13, 1868, is now living. Mr. Brown was a soldier of the late war, enlisting in 1862 in Company H, Sixty-Seventh IndianaVolunteer Infantry, with which he served faithfully and creditably until he was honorably discharged at the close of the war July 8, 1865. He is the owner of a nice farm of forty-five acres, is a republican in politics, and he and wife are members of the Christian Church, and among Lawrence County's best citizens.
