About John Brown

Captain John Brown was a bachelor. He died 19 feb 1848 and is buried in Lee Mission Cemetery, Salem, Oregon. John Brown was a sea captain who had no especial habitat, but counted his brother's home, Clark Brown's as his own, whenever he chose to be in it. He lived with is brother's family in Maryland and Missouri and accompanied the family to Oregon in 1846.

Captain John Brown's boat was captured by the French during the quarrel between France and the United States in the John Adams administration. The dispute started in December, 1796 from the recall of Monroe until the conclusion of the convention with France in September 1800. Uncle John Brown's boat was seized during this trouble. He was taken prisoner by the French. I do not know how his release was achieved."
