BROWN, James Cauldwell, clergyman, born in St. Clairsville, Ohio, 5 October, 1815; died in Paducah, Kentucky, 14 July, 1862. He was graduated at Jefferson College, Canonsburg, Pennsylvania in 1835, after which he spent two years at the Western Theological Seminary in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, and then studied at the theological seminary in Columbia, South Carolina. He was licensed to preach by the presbytery of Harmony, South Carolina, and in 1839 went to Indiana to engage in missionary work along the southern shore of Lake Michigan. Settling in Valparaiso, Indiana, he preached there for twenty-one years, and built up the largest Presbyterian church in northern Indiana. He organized nearly all the churches of his denomination within a circuit of thirty miles. In 1860 he became general agent of the Theological Seminary of the Northwest in Chicago, where he initiated measures that resulted in the establishment of a Presbyterian Seminary. During the winter of 1861 he preached in South Bend, Indiana, and while there was elected chaplain of the 48th Indiana volunteers, he served with his regiment from May, 1862, till shortly before his death, which resulted from disease contracted in camp.
