Brown, Joseph Z., Weybridge, was born in St. Thomas, Canada, on January 6, 1829. His parents were Mitchell and Brown. He received no education whatever, and was brought up to farming; remained at home until the year 1846, when he came to Addison county, Vermont, and settled in Cornwall, and remained there three years and worked for Chauncey Stowell. He came to Weybridge, Addison county, Vt., and worked for Philo Jewett for one year, after which he worked for Sardis Dodge, John Childs, and many others. While with Colonel Dodge he learned the carpenter and joiners’ trade with Leonard Johnson, an occupation which he followed until settling on the place he now occupies, having purchased this place in 1861. He was married in 1856 to Mary E. Yatto. They have had seven children born to them, five of whom are now living: Mary (now Mrs. Joseph Nash, who resides in Weybridge, Vt.); Emma (now Mrs. Fred Marbell, of Middlebury, Vt.) ; Emily, Hattie, and Joseph, all of whom are at home. Mr. Brown settled on the place on which he now resides (and which was formerly the Hayward place) soon after his marriage. It consists of seventy-three acres. He has devoted his time to farming for the past five years.
