James Mark Brown


Descendants of JAMES MARK BROWN, SR.

 

Generation No. 1

 

1. JAMES MARK BROWN, SR. was born March 2, 1834, in Northern England, Barnard Castle County, Durham, England. After a stint in the navy, he came to the United States at the age of twenty. James initially worked as an apprentice carpenter, then around 1857, he enlisted in the army for a five year term. During the Civil War, he recruited and drilled soldiers in Illinois. Re-enlisting in 1866, he spent five more years with the Fourth U.S. Cavalry. In 1867, he was sent to Texas, serving at Camp Verde, Austin, Fort Concho and in 1870 at Fort Richardson where he was discharged in October, 1871. At this point, it appears that he moved his family from Carlyle, Pennsylvania, to Austin, Texas. He again worked as a carpenter until he settled his family on a farm near Round Rock, Texas in 1875. In December, 1885, he purchased 400 acres of land in Bowman, Archer County, Texas. He served as a county commissioner in Archer County, then moved the family once more in 1899 to a farm in Wichita County, in the present day Faith Village area in Wichita Falls, Texas.
