Ref: The burial location for George Brown is on his farm located off State Hwy. No 244, about 1 1/3 mile east and ½ mile south of Richland, IN. This is where he died on 21 Sep. 1825. George Brown's burial location was in
terrible condition and the grave located in a pasture was overrun by stock.
During the month of Sep. 1961, the headstone (one placed by the Quartermaster General, U.S. Army, other by a D.A.R. Chapter) was reset, grave filled in and grave site enclosed by a fence. On the wall, in the main
entrance of the Rush Co., IN Courthouse is a plaque bearing the name of George Brown, together with 23 other veterans of the Rev. War buried in Rush
Co., IN.
