BROWNE, Samuel J., clergyman, born in England, 19 March, 1788; died at Harrison Junction, Ohio, 10 September, 1872. He went to Cincinnati in 1798 with his father, Rev. John W. Browne, who was an English Independent minister. He became a minister of the United Brethren, but parted with them on the question of secret societies, and joined the presbytery of Cincinnati about 1868. He accumulated a large fortune by the rise of real estate in that City, and bequeathed $150,000 for the establishment of a University to bear his name, also land whereon to erect the building, and an endowment for professorships. He left other sums for the building of a church and for the establishment of a free school in Cincinnati.
