In 1830 he located, and visited Indiana; in 1831 entered the Holston Conference; in 1832 was transferred to the Illinois Conference; and in 1833, on the formation of the Indiana Conference, became a member of it, and labored as health permitted to the close of his life, June 8, 1860. Mr. Brown was deeply devoted to the Church, and highly revered by all who knew him. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1860, page 355.
