    1895 Nathaniel M Brown biography
    NATHANIEL M. BROWN. Of that sturdy and independent class, the farmers of New York. none possess more genuine merit or a stronger character than the subject of this biographical notice. In his calling as an agriculturist he has attained more than ordinary success, and wherever known is recognized as an energetic amid progressive farmer. He is the owner of a well improved estate of twenty-three acres, lying in the town of New Windsor, and containing all the improvements of a model estate. The homestead is a valuable one, and its attractiveness is enhanced by its large and beautiful trees, the most of which were planted by the present owner. Very soon after coming here, he planted six cedar trees, eighteen incites in height, which are all living and are about forty feet high.
      On both sides of the house, Mr. Brown is the descendant of patriotic forefathers. His maternal grandfather, Samuel Weed, served throughout the entire period of the Revolutionary War, and died at the age of ninety-three years. His father, Hosea Brown, was a soldier in the War of 1812, and died at the age of eighty-five years. By the marriage of Hosea and Jane (Weed) Brown, there were born seven children, namely: Addison, who died in 1882; Nathaniel M.; Silas, who is living in Wappinger’s Falls, N. Y.; Anna E., Mrs. Garrison White, deceased; Harriet, wife of John White; Charles, deceased; and Matilda, wife of Daniel Gardner.
      The subject of this notice was born, on Meadow Hill, in the town of Newburgh. December 30, 1819, and spent his boyhood days at the place of his birth. In 1842 he married Miss Caroline Merritt, and thirteen children were born of their union, seven of whom are deceased. Those who survive are, Adelia, Ellen, Adelaide, Tressa, Henrietta and Amy J. For two years after his marriage our subject lived on a part of his father’s farm, and then for five years lived at Orange Lake, after which he was for ten years a resident of the town of Newburgh. In 1866 he settled upon the farm where he has since made his home, engaging in general farm pursuits and in the dairy business.
      A man of intelligent ideas, liberal views and pronounced opinions of his own, Mr. Brown is a progressive and liberal-spirited citizen, an active and industrious farmer, and an accommodating neighbor. His moral worth and integrity are
