Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 20, 1863

Civil War Union Soldier. The volunteers who came together to form the 76th Regiment Pennsylvania Infantry - the "KeyStone Zouaves" were recruited from Lawrence, Mercer, Blair, York, Bedford, Westmoreland, Luzerne and Beaver counties. Among these Pennsylvanians was John C. Brown who after enlisting as a corporal on November 11, 1861 was assigned to Company G. By the summer of 1862, he and his regiment were in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, attached to the Department of the South. These Pennsylvanians participated in the fighting on James Island near Charleston and later at Pocotaligo in Beaufort County. On July 11, 1863, Corporal Brown was ferried from Folly Island to adjacent Morris Island where he and his comrades made a frontal attack against the Confederate works named Battery Wagner. When this failed attack ended, the corporal was numbered among his regiment's wounded. He was transferred to Hilton Head Island,SC where he died from his battle injuries on July 20, 1863.
