History of Huntington County, Indiana: from the earliest time to the present; published 1887

ASA BROWN, retired farmer, was born in Clinton County, Ohio, January 29, 1818, the son of Asa and Anna (Alexander) Brown, natives of Massachusetts and Kentucky, respectively. He grew to manhood in his native county, enjoyed but limited educational advantages in the indifferent country schools of the period, and was raised amid the rugged scenes of farm life. At the acre of twenty-two he began farming for himself on rented land and later purchased a small tract which he disposed of in 1853, and moved to Huntington County, Indiana, settling upon 120 acres of land which he purchased a short time previous. Like the other early settlers in Rock Creek, Mr. Brown encountered his full share of the hardships incident to pioneer life: but being a man of great industry he soon succeeded in bringing a goodly number of acres under successful cultivation. He purchased additional tracts at different times, owning at this time about 2lO acres, which has been divided among his children, he retaining an interest sufficient for a comfortable support. In early life Mr. Brown was a Democrat, but on moving to this county joined the Republican party, with which he has since been identified. He was prominently connected with the Grange movement, and in religion worships with the Christian Church, of which he has for years been a consistent member. He was married September 27, 1840, to Miss Cindarella Wilson, who was born in Ohio, August 29,1817. She departed this life on the 2d of May, 1870. The following are the names of the children born to Mr. and Mrs. Brown, to-wit: Margaret J., wife of Levi Allen; Anna C., wife of George W. Sloan; Sarah E., wife of C. W. Bonham; John W., James H., Asa S. and Oliver M. Brown
