    Elder Brown, as he was afterwards called, moved with his family, in May, 1792, to the wilderness of New York. The year previous he went on horseback to Albany, NY, and procured a deed of land in the town of Brookfield. During the summer he made a clearing and built a log house, and in the autumn returned to his family in Stonington. The following May, with his wife and children in an ox-cart and he on horseback, they began their logn and perilous journey to Brookfield.
    The early training of these children was in their New England home in Stonington -- not only from father and mother, but also from grandfather and grandmother, for this indefatigable man of God had not only gathered a church, but guilt a house of worship, largely by his courage and energy and with his own hands. Here these grandchildren listened to the gospel as it fell from his anointed lips. This fact must not be forgotten, for Ruth, the oldens, was twenty-four years old, and Phebe, the youngest, was five years old, when they emigrated to Brookfield. Thus in their childhood days began the development of Christian life and character which continued, with increasing activities, in their new pioneer home and its characteristic of their descendants to the present time.

In her young womanhood she was surrounded by atmosphere of Christian love and fellowship, and in maturer years her home was full of sunshine and good cheer, and her name has been perpetuated from generation to generation, until descendants by the name of Ruth are counted by the score.
