Say Hello to Joyce 
Dear Joyce, I never knew my grandfather Herman L. Brown.  He died in 1963
and I did not start my quest for family until 1969.  In 1969 I made a connection with the National Archives concerning my grandfather's army record. That led me Bradford County and the discovery of my Brown Line all the way back to Thomas Brown IV.  Here is my grandfather Herman L. Brown at the age of Twenty-one. He enlisted in the Army July 11, 1900 in Athens, Bradford County, Pa. during the Spanish-American War.  At the time of his enlistment he was living in Homett's Ferry and he lists Homett's Ferry as his place of birth. He made his living by working on the railroad as a steam Pumpman.  Herman was the first child of Nelson Brown and Emma Jane Jennings. Nelson shows up a farmer in the 1900 Wyalusing Directory.  As the story continues, after his enlistment was over, he was discharged at Fort Douglas, Utah, July 10,1903.  He stayed in Salt Lake City for a while and there married a young Swedish girl whose name was Lovisa.  After the birth of two boys the family moved to Los Angeles, Cal.  Here Llovisa died of TB and Herman left his son's in the care of Lovisa's cousin and left for the East.  He did not turn up until 1926 when he returned home to Wyalusing and his father's home on Lime Hill.  Shortly thereafter His father Nelson passed away and Herman took over the family farm. Here he stayed until his
death in 1963. Though I never knew him in life, I feel very close him now, and my regret
is that I never could call him grandpa.    Robert Madison Brown  Salt Lake City, Utah
