J. J. BROWN, M.D., was born in Rockport, Spencer Co., Ind., April 28, 1826; and was educated at La Porte, Ind.; acquired both classical and medical education at Indiana Medical College; came to Wisconsin 1847, stopping at Janesville for a few months, then he returned to La Porte, Ind., where he was located until he came to Madison, in May 1853, with the exception of eighteen months spent in California, in 1850 and 1851. Since coming here, he has been engaged in the practice of his profession. The Doctor has been making a specialty of hygiene, ventilation and the sanitary features of health; considers himself second to none in regard to the question of heating and ventilation; and says if there is anything he prides himself on, it is that he is an observer of nature in a great degree. Dr. BROWN was married near Elmira, N.Y., June 22, 1852, to Sarah A. KRESS; she was born in Troy, Penn., Dec., 13, 1827. The Doctor is a member of the County, State and American Medical Associations.
