Birth: May 25, 1824
Death: Sep. 14, 1893

From Bell's History of Northumberland County 1891: CYRUS BROWN, druggist, was born in White Deer valley, Union county, Pennsylvania May 25, 1824, eldest son of Samuel T. and Nancy (Woods) Brown. He was educated at the schools of Milton and the Lewisburg Academy, after which he entered a drug store in Philadelphia, where he remained until he acquired a thorough knowledge of the business. In 1854 he returned to Milton and established his present drug house, which is now the largest in the county. He was burned out in May, 1880, with a loss of fifty thousand dollars outside of his insurance, but rebuilt the same year, and in 1882 erected his present store. Mr. Brown handles white lead in large quantities, and is the inventor and manufacturer of the Red Horse powder. He is a believer in printer's ink, and is probably the most extensive advertiser in the county. In 1859 he married Louisa B., daughter of David Krauser, who died leaving one daughter, Hettie L. He was again married January 1, 1876, to Mrs. Rebecca H. Rhodes, widow of Doctor Rhodes, of Milton. Politically Mr. Brown is a Democrat; he has served as city council­man, and is a member of the Presbyterian church.
