About Marshall Foster Brown

Marshall Foster Brown was the son of Foster Brown and Seraphina C. Wheeler. He was listed as an able bodied man eligible to serve in the militia from the age of about twenty-six in 1873 until about age forty-five in 1892 in Prescott, Hampshire, Massachusetts. He followed in his father's footsteps operating a sawmill and made wooden crates for shipping produce. Born in Prescott, his desire was to live there until he died, which thankfully he was able to do. He was married to Lucy Flora Stone by T. S. Norton on August 2, 1878, and they had six children together. Their grandchildren returned to visit and remembered the old mill and home, and brought their own children to visit the Prescott peninsula until that part of the Quabbin watershed was closed off to former residents. Marshall Foster Brown was a ninth generation descendant of William White who was a passenger on the ship Mayflower.
