Angus was the second child of Joseph R. and Susan (Frenier) Brown, and was married to Elizabeth Fadden. At the beginning of the Sioux uprising, Angus and his family (his father was away at the time) left their large home on the north side of the Minnesota River and were joined by others who were fleeing to Ft. Ridgely. They had traveled about six miles when they were surrounded and captured by Indians. Two men were allowed to leave, while Angus and the others were taken to villages across the river. A brother-in-law was allowed to leave Little Crow's camp, and the others were eventually freed at Camp Release. Angus worked in the scout camps that were organized to protect the settlers in northeastern South Dakota. Later, he was in the real estate business at Browns Valley with his younger brothers, Samuel J. and Joseph Jr. He died in 1886 at age 49, and is buried next to his mother and brother, Joseph Jr.
