|256||iii.||Clarence P. Brown, born 1867 in Dubois County, Indiana.|
Notes for Clarence P. Brown:|
Clarence P. Brown survived through childhood. He was a member of the Jasper Legion Drum Corp as a youth. He was in the household as the oldest sibling, 16-17, when his father Martin V died in 1884. Again we see an untimely death of the father leaving eight underage sibling in the household. Thomas Anderson, husband of Sarah Brown (daughter of David G & Nancy Brittain Brown) and uncle of these eight sibling took over as legal guardian.
There is a court document recording the sale of his 1/12 share of his fathers land to his step-mother, Diannah (Anna) Williams Brown in 1890.
At this point there is no record of Clarence P Brown's marriage or death.

|257||iv.||David R Brown, born 1869 in Dubois County Indiana; died December 23, 1892 in Dubois County Indiana.|
Notes for David R Brown:|
David R Brown, grandson of David G & Nancy Brittain Brown, was the youngest child of Martin V & Manhalet Powers Brown. He was five years old when his father died. The records shows that he lived for some time as a youth with his mothers parents, Major Thomas Powers, early pioneer of Dubois Co Indiana. He was fond of pointing out where his grandparents were buried in the Evans Cemetery in Jasper.
David R Brown died at 23 years of age from liver cancer. He never married and was listed as a farmer.
At this point, it appears that none of Martin V & Manhalet Powers Brown's four sons ever married unless new information is uncovered.

Notes for William E Brown:|
William (Bill) E. Brown, born Ireland (Dubois County), Indiana July 18, 1878. In February 1998 he joined the US States Army, age 19. On his enlistment papers he put his date of birth as December 1976. Evidently his real age would not have allowed him to enlist. He took training in the artillery and by the start of the Spanish-American War he was in Cuba and took part in the battle of Santiago. His mother received a report from one of his comrades that he was killed in this battle. The Jasper, IN newspaper published this information "The 3rd soldier from the peaceful citizens of Dubois County killed by the savage, heathenish Spaniards in this war for humanity was Wm. E. Brown, son of Anna Brown, a widow From Boone township. He was a bright young man, a graduate this spring of the common school course. he volunteered in the regular army and was assigned to he heavy artillery, where his common school diploma soon gave him a promotion as sergeant. His battery was in the front at the battle of Santiago and one of his comrades has written to his mother the he was among the killed."
In the November 25, 1898 Jasper Newspaper we find the following article. "Home: The 159 regiment was mustered out at Indianapolis Wednesday so that the volunteers might enjoy thanksgiving at home. William E Brown, belonging to battery a, 2d US artillery has returned to his home in Boone Twp, discharged on account of sickness, as the battery is expected to go to Cuba."
In the December 2, 1898 Jasper Newspaper we find the following article. "The relatives, neighbors and friends of William E Brown of Santiago fame, gave him a surprise on thanksgiving in Boone township. Every one was anxious to greet the returning soldier, and tried in some way to do him honor. when he came in from a Short hunt in the morning he found about 150 of his friends assembled, and the table ladened with turkey, cake, pumpkin pies and other necessary eatables, which were partaken of by all. Home and patriotic songs were a part of the program, and all claimed to have a good time."
February 1901, he enlisted for four more years. He may have been wounded however during the battle of Santiago, for in march 1906, he was approved for a pension. His complete Army records are included in the family book.
Family History records that William E Brown went on to serve in some type of Police work in Washington, DC for many years. Some said he was Chief of Police there (I doubt this), some said that he rode a motorcycle which lead the President Of the United States during special times. He may have been a member of the Secret Service (Secret Service had no record of employment) or just a member of the Washington DC Police Dept. At this time we do not know. There is a War Dept. (Adjutant General's Office) memo in his file dated Sept 1, 1938 requesting S.O.S. for burial.
Department of Veterans Affairs, National Cemetery System, Washington, DC: "Sergeant William E Brown of the US Army's 3rd Battery Field Artillery, is interred in Grave 23398, in Arlington National Cemetery. He died on August 31,1938."

Appendicitis, chronic. Contributory (secondary) cause: Bronchopneumonia, all lobes, both lungs, terminal. An operation proceeded death on August 25, 1938. No autopsy.
Wife's name: Margaret E Brown. Residence address: 801 Nicholson St. NW, Washington, DC.
New information, September 18, 1998: Found his death notice in the September 2, 1938 WASHINGTON POST NEWSPAPER: "Brown, William E. On Wednesday, August 31, 1938 at Walter Reed General Hospital. WILLIAM E. BROWN, beloved husband of Margaret E. Brown, of 801 Nicholson St. NW. Funeral services will be held at the above residence on Saturday, September 3, at 10 A.M. Interment at Arlington National Cemetery. Friends and relatives invited." No children listed.
Taken from the 1920 US Census: William E Brown, age 41, birthplace Indiana. Wife Margaret E, age 40, birthplace Ireland. Residence 1227 New York Ave N.W., Washington, DC. Living in a rented home. No children listed. His occupation listed as Lawyer working in Real estate. (This is a surprise as all family oral history mentioned some kind of Police work?) Census information found in Volume 1, E.D. 8, sheet 3, line 31.
This will be the last information I expect to gather on this ancestor until the 1930 census information becomes available in 2002. It appears that he and Margaret spent most of their married life in Washington, DC and did not have any children in 1920 nor in 1938 at the time of his death. BB October 11, 1998.
Notes for Margaret E:|
Taken from 1920 US Census: Margaret E Brown immigrated from Ireland in 1889 when she was abt ten years old. We assume she came with her parents who are shown as being born in Ireland. She became a naturalization citizen of the United States in 1906. We do not have her maiden name, only the initial E being shown on all documents. I assume it would be possible to search for her identity, looking for a Margaret E who immigrated in 1889 and became a Naturalized citizen in 1906. 1906 is the year that William E Brown finished his second hitch in the US Army. I wonder if they were acquainted by then?[Broderbund Family Archive #110, Vol. 1 A-L, Ed. 5, Social Security Death Index: U.S., Date of Import: Apr 3, 1999, Internal Ref. #220.127.116.11751.184]
