oldest in his Father's family and was born in the log cabin in Pickaway County, Ohio, July 29, 1839. He lived on the Blackwood farm,
just over the line in Franklin County, until he was about sixteen when the family moved into the village of Lithopolis where they lived
four years. He went to school to his father at Middletown and to the academy in Lithopolis".... "Mathematical studies were his
favorites, and he was also of an inventive mind. He first learned the cabinet making trade, but after his marriage to my mother, Jennie
E. Welton, May 22, 1862, they lived for a year or so on her farm in the Welton Valley, then moved to the village of Lithopolis. During
the year on the farm he was called out in the militia when Morgan's men came, at time of the Civil War, but only went as far as
Columbus, (They were drilled near Groveport) when by paying a substitute, he was excused on account of his wife's illness. My father
became a tinner, buying the store in Lithopolis and built a comfortable home on the adjoining lot, where the three younger children were
born; I, being the eldest, first saw the light in what was then known as the Willis property on top of the hill on the south side of Church
Street. My father was a member of the Presbyterian Church at Lithopolis and gave many years of service to it in different capacities,
as choir leader with his sweet tenor voice, sometimes as organist and at times acted as sexton. He was rather stern but conscientious,
had no bad habits; he was timid in expressing himself in conversation. About 1890 he sold his business interests in Lithopolis and
removed to Columbus where he became a building contractor."

then of George Weiser. This firm was as widely known as the Village itself." Page 29, "The next house to the north was erected by
Reuben Blackwood about the year 1870. It was his home for many years, and here he raised his family, in his older years removing to
Columbus." Page 56, "I think it was immediately after the civil war that Reuben Blackwood, the son of John Blackwood, married a
village girl, the daughter of widow Gibbey, bought the machinery for the manufacture of tinware, and the building it occupied, from
Parmele Bailey, the widow of Amos Bailey, recently deceased, and continued that business. He joined with himself in partnership, his
brother-in-law, John Green, and they added to the business, that of putting on metal and slate roofing, then coming into vogue. Both
moved to the Village."
Source - THE TIMES newspaper, dated Wednesday, January 12, 1983, has an article regarding Reuben Blackwood's house in Lithopolis. The
citizens tried to raise money to have the house moved before it was to be torn down to make more room for Wagnalls Memorial
building, estimates being from $25,000 to $30,000 to move the decaying brick structure. It was not accomplished and consequently
torn down. It had been considered "in the 1876 Fairfield County atlas as a community landmark" and the "only house in Lithopolis that
features Italian architecture." There is a copy of a watercolor depiction of the home.

HENRY - Source: Data Collected by Mary Erden (Brown) Lauridsen - He was a Musician in the War of the Rebellion (Civil War).
From the ATLANTIC NEWS-TELEGRAPH (Ohio): "HEROES OF THE SIXTIES" "We consider today Henry M. Brown, another of the well
known veterans of the civil war, who makes this city his home. Mr. Brown, son of Joseph and Rebecca L. Brown, was born at
Lithopolis, O., on May 30, 1842. In March of 1862, when he was nearly 20 years old, Mr. Brown went to Wheatland, Clinton County,
Ia., to conduct a harness shop for his father, having served an apprenticeship at the harnessmaker's trade. In June of 1863 he was
married in Ohio to Sarah A. Blackwood. They made their home in Iowa until Jan. 19, 1864, when, following a severe cold spell known
as "the cold New Year's," Mr. Brown sold out and he and his young wife, who was ill, moved back to the old home in Ohio. At this
time enlistments in the northern army in the civil war were slow and the draft had been ordered. Concluding not to wait to be drafted,
Mr. Brown and a dozen other young men journeyed to Columbus and enlisted for the period of one year or during the remainder of the
war, in Company A, 176th Ohio Volunteer infantry and in a few days were started on the road to Nashville, Tenn. On arriving in the
city, they were quartered overnight in the largest hotel there, the unfinished Zolliecoffer, sheltering about 7,000 of the northern soldiers.
The next morning they marched to a point about three miles out of the city where they camped. When Sherman started his march to
the sea, General Hood started north, and General Thomas gathered the troops from the surrounding country at Nashville to stop Hood.
At Franklin, fifteen miles below Nashville, he was engaged by the forces of General Schofield. After nightfall the northern forces were
forced to fall back to Nashville. The weather turned cold, with ice and snow, and prohibited Hood from attacking, thus giving Thomas
more time to organize. Mr. Brown's regiment was on reserve near Fort Negley, and one morning about half the regiment moved out to
the battery to support them during a movement. The next day Hood commenced falling back and when Thomas got through with him he
was out of the picture. Mr. Brown was discharged from the service on June 14, 1865. After his discharge he engaged in shoemaking
in his old home town in Ohio until 1868 when he moved to Marion county, Ia., and located on a farm. In 1879 he sold out in Marion
county and came to Cass county, locating on the place four and a half miles southwest of Atlantic now owned by Jack Odem. Mr.
Brown and his four oldest sons moved overland to this county from Ohio, sleeping in their covered wagons at night in the fore part of
February. The temperature at that time was exceptionally mild, and the immigrants encountered good roads and good weather all the
way, riding in their shirtsleeves in the afternoons. In 1893 Mr. Brown rented his farm and moved to Atlantic, where he built the
residence at 807 Olive Street where he now lives. After moving here he engaged for a number of years at his old trade, that of
harness maker, in which he was employed by Ike Ours and others. Mr. Brown united with the Methodist Church at the age of 19 and
BLACKWOOD, BROSSMAN & BROWN'S OF LITHOPOLIS, OHIO
has continued in that denomination since. He is one of the oldest members of the church in this city. His first vote for president was
cast for Abraham Lincoln while he was in the army at Nashville, Tenn. Mr. Brown's wife died Jan. 15, 1922, after fifty-nine years of
married life. His children are Ed E. Brown of Atlantic, Joe Brown of Randolph, Neb., Asa Brown of Bear Grove township, H. E. Brown
of Bear Grove, Emory Brown of Port Angeles, Wash., Herbert Brown of Kennewick, Wash., and Mrs. Carrie Miles of Des Moines. One
daughter, Mrs. Abbie Rich, wife of O. W. Rich, is deceased. He is one of the civil war musicians and plays the fife in the local G.A.R.
drum corps. His interest in all things is keen and he is as much concerned with the welfare of his country as he was when he enlisted
to help save the Union in his young manhood. The writer has known the subject of this sketch since he -the writer -was a boy, and he
never knew a man of more sterling character or whose code of honor and uprightness was more solidly grounded. Mr. Brown has a
legion of friends hereabouts and takes a keen delight in their companionship. He is a fine type of American citizenship and exemplifies
the best traditions of the republic."

Source "History of Cass County, Iowa", 1884: H.M. Brown, resides on section 14, Washington township, where he purchased two hundred
and seventy acres of nice land in 1880, and has since remained there. He was born in Ohio, in 1842, and was reared there. He
learned the trade of a harness maker, and in 1862, came to Clinton county, Iowa, where he was engaged in the harness business until
1864, when he returned to Ohio, and enlisted in the One Hundred Seventy-sixth Ohio Infantry, and served in that regiment until the
close of the war. After the war he returned to Ohio, and was there engaged in the boot and shoe business until the spring of 1868,
where he sold out and came to Marion county, Iowa, where he commenced farming and was so engaged until coming to Cass county,
where he has since followed that occupation. Mr. Brown was married to Sarah A. Blackwood, a native of Ohio, and by whom he has
had eight children - Edward E., Henry E., Emory O., Herbert W., Joseph W., Abbie A., Asa and Carrie M.".

for Lincoln.- In 1893 Mr. Brown rented his farm and moved to Atlantic where he built a residence at 807 Olive street and had resided
there until five months ago when he moved to Des Moines to make his home. After moving here he engaged for a number of years at
his old trade, that of a harness maker, at which he worked for a number of years. Mr. Brown united with the Methodist Episcopal
church at the age of 19 and had been an active worker in that denomination since. His first vote for president was cast for Abraham
Lincoln while he was in the army at Nashville, Tenn. Mr. Brown played a fife in the local G.A.R. drum corps. -Survivors.- Mrs. Brown

Mr. Brown was a native of the state of Ohio and was born at Lithopolis, Ohio, February 10, 1866. At the time of his death he had reached
the age of 74 years, 6 months and 23 days. On February 23, 1893, he was united in marriage to Miss Theresa Bartsch, at Lewis. For
three years they resided near Anita and later took up their residence on a farm near Lewis which was their home until death of Mrs.
Brown in April 1939. After the death of his wife he remained on the farm until his health became such that he was compelled to seek
medical treatment and he went to the hospital.
Mr. Brown is survived by two daughters, Mrs. W.R. Baker of Griswold, and Mrs. Frank Hardenbergh, of near Lewis. There are also five
brothers, Asa Brown, of Atlantic; Emery Brown, of Port Angeles, Wash.; Edward Brown, of Saratoga, California; Herbert Brown of

Following the service at the church the remains were taken to the Oakwood cemetery where they were laid away by the side of his wife. The

Andrews. Later with a partner, Jerry Sohl. Later alone. Before the civil war he tore down the original log building in which the business
had so long been carried on, and erected a substantial two-story brick. The second story was used by the Masonic order as a Lodge
Room, and later it was used as a public hall. Later Mr. Brossman erected a string of business rooms extending the frontage of his two
lots." Page 57, "During all these years John Brossman continued his general store, the most prominent store in the locality. After the

"John Brossman also continued in business until his death. He did business for the longest continued period of any business firm, his
experience running from pioneer days to near the close of last century. In all that long business experience there was never a doubt
cast upon his integrity. He died as he had lived, possessed of universal confidence." Page 64, "Mr. Brossman had put much of his
profits into land, and farming by proxy has never been a very profitably enterprise."

announcement the funeral services of Mrs. C. L. Brown were held at her late home on Locust street, Tuesday
at 4:30 p.m. Very appropriate exercises were conducted by Rev. E. E. Reed, in which Rev. Dr. Hill assisted. A
mixed quartet furnished the music and sang exceptionally well, the funeral was very largely attended. Mrs.
Brown had lived in Atlantic for eighteen years past and during that time had formed a large circle of friends and
acquaintances. Not withstanding this she was a woman devoted to her home and family. It has been truly said
of her, "she lived for her family." She leaves a husband, three sons and two daughters to mourn her death. All
were present at the funeral, her daughter Mrs Dr. Murphy, of Dayton, Ohio, and son Joe, a student in
Northwestern University, arriving home Monday morning. Her husband and other children were with her at the
time of her death. Mrs. Brown had long been a member of the Presbyterian church. The church loses in her an
honored member, the community a true friend and kind neighbor, and the family a devoted mother and faithful
wife. The casket was of a novel design, opening the entire top and one side so that the body appeared to be
lying on a couch over which floweres were woven and strewn. Floral pieces of most beautiful and suggestive
designs were also arranged that she seemed to be sleeping in a bed of roses and flowers. The body had not
been wasted by protracted sickness and the face presented an unusually life like appearance. It was suggestive
of the sleep of death from which her body will awake on the resurrection morn to a life of glory in a better
world." Sarah's parents are named in the obituary of her brother George.

" CHAS. L. BROWN PASSES AWAY Passes Away This Morning at His Home on Locust Street as Result of Appendicitis - Was Sixty-four
THE DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH BROWN
Years of Age - Long Time Resident Here
Charles Lybrand Brown, one of the best known and most respected residents of this city, died at 6:20 this morning at his home on Locust
street, death being the result of an attack of appendicitis, from which he had suffered for a couple of weeks, and from which it was
thought up to a short time before his death, he was recovering. Mr. Brown when first attacked consulted with his physicians and an
operation was suggested, but it was decided not to have the operation, owing to the fear that his heart would not stand it. Subsequently
he improved and was thought to be doing better up to yesterday when the appendix bursted and filled the abdominal cavity with pus. A
post mortem examination held this morning revealed the cause of death. Mr. Brown was born inLithopoliss, Ohio, on the 11th of April,
1844. On the 20th of September, 1865, he was married to Sarah Elizabeth Mosier, sister of George Mosier of this city. Mrs. Brown
died on May 1, 1898, and is buried in the Atlantic cemetery. Deceased came to Pella, Ia. in 1880, and the next year came to this city
where he had lived ever since. For nearly twenty years he was engaged in the hardware and harness business here and in his early life
he followed the trade of a tanner. For the last several years he had been retired from active business. He was a director in the Atlantic
National bank and was interested in other ways in the city. Mr. Brown was a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks,
of the Masonic fraternities and the I. O. O. F. He was always interested in everything which had for its object the upbuilding of the town
and took a keen interest in everything pertaining to municipal affairs. He leaves four children, Andrew D. Brown, Charles D. Brown, the
former a student in the State university at Iowa City, the latter employed by a jewelry concern there; Dr. Joe Brown of Clearfield, Miss
Ella Irene Brown at home and Mr. Rhoda Murphy, wife of Dr. Murphy of Dayton, O. all are here except Mrs. Murphy, who is on her
way to the city now. Mr. Brown was a kindly man and what he thought to be right he adhered to strongly. He was a splendid citizen
and good husband and father, a useful man. His death is mourned by all who knew him."
