Parmer Sanford Brown
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 23, 1830
Herkimer County
New York, USA
Death: Sep. 21, 1895
Headlee
White County
Indiana, USA

Parmer Sanford Brown moved his family from Dickinson County, Kansas to White County, Indiana in 1880. The farm was about 2 and 1/2 miles south of Headlee, Indiana.

Then in 1894, he moved them to Lawrence County, Arkansas seeking a dryer climate. He went back to White County, Indiana to sell the farm, got sick and died there on September 23, 1895. A newspaper article found in Monticello states that he was buried in the Ploss Cemetery near Headlee. ( I understand that this cemetery is called Mt. Pleasant today )

The family story goes that in February of 1896, in the dead of winter, his body was taken to Arkansas by his oldest son, Bert Brown, but I have no proof. The story goes on to say that he was buried under a tree near the Arkansas and Missouri border because the Arkansas law officials wouldn't allow them to bring the body across the border.
