Mr Charles Brown
Was Born in Northern Penn. and lived there until The California Gold Rush of 1849 So at age 41 He Went West! To find his fortune, But He found more money supplying the Miners with Provisions than digging it from the grounds himself, He soon found things drying up in California so He first Moved to Carson City NV. some time around 1856 and later to Gold Hill in 1858 starting a Hotel & Boarding house with a Saloon,
When the News of Gen. Lee's Surrender at Appomattox Court House on April 9th 1865 Reached Gold Hill Nevada on April 11th there was a Huge celebration and Charles Brown being a Loyal Union Man took part in the Celebration which was a little hard on him and He suffered a Stroke on April 12th, And was taken to his bed were he lay unable to move or speak for two days until he died at 12:45 April 14th 1865 (The day before Lincoln'a Assassination) At Age 57 He was Buried at the top of the Knoll near the Maison's Section.

The Attached Tin Type of Charles Brown is Courtesy Of The Brown Family now living in Carson City who were kind enough to let me Copy it for Find a Grave, Thank You.
The Photographer has glued his card to the back that reads *Superior Ferrotypes* Pioneer Gallery...Geo. H. Johnson ..Artist....Landin County Nevada. And appears to have been taken in the late 1850s,
The Two color Photos taken in 1998 are to show you how the Gold Hill NV. City Cemetery Looks like today.
