The Liberator (Boston, Massachusetts)

As a collector of Brown family memorabilia, I can’t help but wonder where the items ended up after John’s daughter died without heirs?
According to The Kansas Annual Register for 1864, John Brown Jr was the Captain of the Company K, 7th Regiment in January 1862 and on May 27th 1862 he retired due to illness.
After his retirement from the military, he and his family moved to Put-In-Bay, Ohio, were he lived out his life and was buried in 1895. (see post for pictures of graves) His wife, Wealthy, remained at their home in Put-In-Bay, Ohio, until her death in 1911
