John Brown

John Brown
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on February 16, 2009

John Brown (c.1810 - 1876) also known by his **** name, 'Fed', was a **** in Virginia. He moved at age ten to North Carolina where he was separated from his mother. He was moved to Georgia where he worked some years on a cotton farm in Milledgeville under harsh conditions.

After several attempts, Brown finally managed to escape and moved around the country and the world, eventually sailing to England in 1850 where he worked as a carpenter in London.



He contacted the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society and in 1855 he dictated the book **** Life in Georgia: A Narrative of the Life, Sufferings, and Escape of John Brown, a Fugitive ****, Now in England to the society's secretary, Louis Alexis Chamerovzow. This is one of the many descriptions of ****'s life in the south known as "**** narratives."

Brown married a local woman and remained in London until his death, earning a living as a herbalist. He died in London in 1876.
