Brown, Edwin C

Brown, Edwin C.

a Baptist minister, was born at New London, Connecticut, November 28, 1807. He graduated at Madison University, N.Y., in 1838; was ordained immediately afterwards in Hudson; and began to preach as a missionary in Franklin, Missouri. In consequence of his outspoken views on the subject of slavery, after a single year of service, he resigned; and, after supplying a pulpit at St. Louis for six months, removed to Quincy, Illinois, where he remained five years. He filled an engagement at Galena for three months, and then accepted a call to Lonsdale, R.I. His other pastorates were at Port Richmond, Pennsylvania; Beverly, N.J.; Waabash, Ind.; Bath and Westmoreland, N.Y.; and Oxford, Illinois. In consequence of ill-health he retired from the pastorate, and continued his ministerial work only as a supply in places in Illinois. He died in Galva, January 16, 1881. See Chicago Standard, February 3 1881; Minutes of Illinois Anniversaries, 1881, page 11. (J.C.S.)
