From "Athens Home Coming," Athens Ohio, 1904. (out of copyright.)

With a consuming thirst for knowledge, John's opportunities for satisfying this desire were limited. At the age of thirteen he began the study of arithmetic, and with the aid of his mother mastered the fundamental rules. He attended school several months in Marietta, and in his zeal, that would not stop at any obstacle, studied and recited eighteen hours per day. For twelve or fourteen years he taught school in the winter and worked on a farm in the summer. In 1840 he removed to Albany, Ohio and 1868 to Athens, where he and his son, James D. Brown, engaged in the business under the name of "Bank of Athens."
