Born in Langenreuth, Bavaria. Immigrated to U.S. in 1841, as reported by daughter Elizabeth on 1900 U.S. Federal Census. St. John Lutheran Church of Evanston, IN, has record of marriage 5 May 1842, Spencer County, IN. On U.S. Federal Censuses 1850 & 1860, name is anglicized to John Brown. Twelve of the 13 Braun (Brown) children are included on the censuses: Michael, Elizabeth, Johannes W., Christine, Johann A., Peter, Friedrich, Johann Georg, Christoph, Margaretha, Johann Heinrich, and Katherine; Wilhelm is never listed. The church record of the family was likely constructed after 1868, as it states that Katharina is a widow to Johannes; and, it lists son Wilhelm, but not Johann A. who may have been deceased by that time. The mother's obituary says three children preceded her in death; death records have not yet been found for Christine (born 3 Feb 1845), Johann A. (born ~1846), or Peter (born ~1848). Christine and Peter apparently lived to early adulthood: Christine married Friedrich Traut (found on copy in stack of church records, but no date). and Peter married Mary Bangert in 1871 (Spencer Co. public record). Johann A. is age 15 on the 1860 census where he is last found on public record. Records are linked to this memorial for the ten children known to survive at the time of their mother's death. Some of the names have been anglicized.
