Brown, Frank a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Warren County, Pennsylvania, January 30, 1837. He was converted at fifteen; graduated at Allegheny College at eighteen; served four years as professor in the university at Athens, Ohio, two years as superintendent of schools in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, one year as tutor in Allegheny College, and in 1863 entered the Erie Conference. When the Conference was divided, he fell into the East Ohio. His appointments were, Delaware Grove, Sheakleyville, Conneautville, Girard, Bristol, Jefferson, Tidioute; Scoville Avenue, Cleveland; and New Philadelphia. At the close of this last pastorate ill- health compelled him to take a supernumerary relation, which he held until his death at Chautauqua, N.Y., August 3, 1881. He lived a pure and blameless life, approaching the ideal as a minister of the Gospel. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1881, page 319.
