    T. C. BROWN

    T. C. BROWN, one of Miami County's representative citizens and a commissioner of the same for the past four years, resides on his farm of 185 acres in Washington Township, where he was born in 1845. He is a son of B. F. and a grandson of James Brown.

    James Brown was born in Virginia and was one of the hardy woodsmen and pioneers who accompanied Daniel Boone to Kentucky. In 1807 he pressed onward into Miami County, Ohio, founding the family in Washington Township. There his son, the late B. F.Brown, was born, in 1811, who died in 1887. Although he lived on his farm throughout a long life, he was well known all over the county, being a man of sterling character and noted public spirit. He capably filled all the township offices and for a number of years served also as a county commissioner.

    T. C. Brown, like his late father, has always identified himself with agricultural pursuits in Washington Township. For some years he has been one of the leading stock raisers of Miami County, his Shorthorn cattle and Thoroughbred horses taking prizes wherever exhibited. He makes a specialty of trotting horses and has animals of which he is justly proud. One of the noted occupants of his stables is Delegate, a fine trotter with a record of 2:19 and the sire of a number of fine animals. Mr. Brown purchased Delegate in Lexington, Ky., when he was a two-year old.

    In 1876 Mr. Brown was married to Miss Alice Sawyer, of Boston, Massachusetts, who died on April 1, 1907. Mr. Brown has taken an active part in politics ever since he reached the age of discretion, and has never failed to cast his vote at an important election, with one exception, when he was away from his own State. He has served in his present office since September, 1904.
