Franklin and Cerro Gordo Counties, Iowa

James H. BROWN

JAMES H. BROWN came to Cerro Gordo county in 1879, buying wild land on section 17, Bath township, which he improved well and sold in 1881. He then purchased an improved farm on section 16, northwest quarter, which he still retains as his present home. He was born in Boone Co., Ill., July 9, 1855, where he made his home with his parents until twenty-one years of age, receiving a liberal education. He then went to Winnebago county, where he engaged in farming until 1879, when he came to this county. He is one of the trustees of Bath township.
