from "Pioneer Days in Malheur County" p.321

George G. Brown was born in Platt County, Missouri, January 22, 1850. In Newton County, Missouri, on March 15, 1874, he was married to Miss Margaret D. Carey. In 1888, they crossed the plains by team and wagon with their four children and Mr. Brown's mother. They settled first in Long valley, Idaho, where Mr. Brown engaged in stock raising. In 1891, they located in this vicinity [Nyssa] and he filed on a homestead between Nyssa and Arcadia, which he converted in a fine alfalfa farm, with a good orchard. Three of the daughters married prominent farmers of the locality. Ira Rutledge, John Ray and Newton Minton."
