Biography

NoteJoshua and two of his brothers, Peleg and Pardon, went west at the time of the Gold Rush. They went first to Nevada, near Reno, where Peleg became a successful rancher and community leader before his early death at age 42. For more information on their time in Nevada, see the record for his brother Peleg.

Pardon and Joshua went to California in the late 1860's. Pardon lived in California until his death in 1909, but Joshua returned to Rhode Island in 1883, and spent the rest of his life there. All of Joshua's children lived in the East except Joshua, Jr., who spent most of his adult life in Glenn and Colusa Counties, California.

Locale Description1868In 1868 in Surprise Valley, Siskiyou County, California. Surprise Valley, lying in the extreme northeastern corner of the county, and partly in the State of Nevada, is about sixty miles long and fifteen wide. It is one of the most beautiful and fertile of all the valleys lying in the high Sierra, being skirted on two sides with lofty, timbered mountains, and containing large tracts of fertile land, watered by numerous springs and streams, and covered with a luxuriant growth of wild clover and other grasses. On the cast side of this valley are three beautiful lakes, extending in a chain nearly its whole length and covering more than one half of its surface. The upper or most northern of these lakes is sixteen miles long and five wide; the central one is twenty miles long by about three miles wide, and the southern and lowest fifteen miles long and three miles wide. Neither of these lakes have any outlet, though each receives the waters of a number of streams flowing from the mountains on the west. They contain no fish, though trout are found in the mountain streams running into them. At certain seasons of the year the whole valley swarms with ducks, geese, cranes, pelicans, and other wild fowl. All the land suitable for farming lies on the west side of these lakes, consisting of a strip of rich black loam, from two to six miles wide, gently sloping to their borders. Where not under cultivation, this land is matted with wild pea vines, gras3 and clover, so rank that it is often difficult to ride through it. This valley is said to have been known to Californians since 1852, but derives its name from the surprise its discovery caused a party from the State of Nevada, who came upon it while in pursuit of a band of marauding Indians, in the spring of 1861. It was supposed to be within the limits of that State until the establishment of the boundary a few years since showed it to lie mostly in California. This valley was first settled in 1866, when a small company entered it and located a number of land claims. Since then other settlers have gone there—the population now amounting to three or four hundred. At Fort Bidwell, situated on a handsome eminence at the north end of the valley, overlooking a large portion of it, a small garrison of soldiers is stationed, to protect the inhabitants against the Indians in the vicinity, who have always been troublesome. A grist mill and saw-mill have been erected in the valley, for the accommodation of the settlers. Several thousand acres of land have been enclosed, and part of it placed under cultivation—the cereals here yielding remarkably well. A market for the products of the farmer is found in the Owyhee and Humboldt mines— the former distant about two hundred miles, in an easterly, and the latter one hundred and thirty miles, in a southeasterly direction. The garrison at the fort, while it shall remain, will also take a portion of these products, and the Black Rock mines, lying fifty miles south, will create a further opening for them, should the lodes there prove valuable. There is also a good prospect that both quartz and placer mines will yet be found at no great distance to the north of this point, in Oregon.
Fort Bidwell, erected in 1865, occupies a commanding site at the north end of the valley. Willow Creek, a large stream of pure water, flows by it, and situated a few rods above the post, is a large boiling spring, the waters of which, besides being useful for bathing purposes, could be advantageously employed for irrigation. The mountain ravines and slopes, lying two or three miles west of the main road leading through the valley, are timbered with pine, fir and cedar, affording fuel and all needed material for fencing and lumber. The climate here is similar to that of the other elevated valleys of California—the days warm, with cool nights, in the summer—the winters cold, with deep snow on the mountains, and but little in the valleys; the weather throughout the rest of the year being generally dry, and the temperature delightful.7
History Note1868In 1868 in Surprise Valley, Modoc County, California, the following event took place: Modoc county was a part of the Utah Territory, and then transferred into the Nevada Territory when it was created. When Nevada became a state, Modoc County was placed within the boundaries of California, becoming a part of Shasta County. Shasta County contained what is now Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Lassen and Modoc counties. Shasta County was divided into two counties in 1852, Shasta and Siskiyou, with Modoc being placed in Siskiyou County.
In 1872, [while JCB was in Newport, RI] an effort was made by the residents of Surprise Valley, along with others who had settled in this area, to form a new county. On February 17, 1874, a bill was passed and signed by then Governor Newton Booth authorizing the formation of a new county -- Modoc. It was first purposed to name the new county "Canby" for the General who lost his life in the Modoc Indian War. Later name "Summit" was suggested but there were many objections and it was finally named Modoc.
Mododc county is the most northeastern county of California and is bounded on the north by the state of Oregon, on the east by the State of Nevada, on the south by Plumas County Ca., and on the west by Siskiyou county Ca. Modoc county received its name from the celebrated Native American Indian tribe whose fierce resistance to the progress of the whites in their settlement of the country made this section notorious over the wild United States.
An election was held on May 5, 1874, to elect county officials and to select a county seat. Lake City received the highest votes as to being the county seat; however, the county fathers decided to Make Dorris Bridge (now Alturas) the county seat, as it contained the majority of people. It was also felt that Dorris Bridge would serve the interests of the new county to better advantage than Lake City, as it was located at the crossroads of the main north-south and east-west routes.8
Census10 June 1870He appeared in the census 10 June 1870 at 2nd Ward in Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island. Joshua is listed as: Farmer, age 42, Real Estate $5,000 and personal assets $10,000, b.

Marriage2 May 1872He and Elizabeth A. Ward were married on 2 May 1872 in Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island,11
Newspaper Mention12 June 1872The 12 June 1872 edition of the Newport Daily News, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, reported that Joshua leaves for California this week.
Newspaper Mention22 June 1872The 22 June 1872 edition of the Newport Mercury, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, reported Mr. Joshua C.Brown and wife and daughters Esmeralda, Nevada, California, and son Joshua, Jr., will leave here Monday for Cedarville, Surprise Valley, California, where they expect to remain several years.
Bio Detail2 July 1872By the summer of 1872, Joshua was on his way back to California. On 2 Jul 1872, he purchased cattle from F. J. Barbee, Paris, KY. Two of them are registered in the Herd Book of Short Horn Cattle. The bull was Ferdinand, #41918, Red, calved Feb 24, 1872, bred by F. J. Barbee, got by Airdrie 2d out of Effie. The cow was Effie, red, calved March 12, 1868, bred by I. H. Piper, Nicholas Co., KY, bought of F. J. Barbee, Paris, KY. Joshua is listed as "of Cedarville, CA" in both these transactions. They went back to Paragon of the West bred by Isaac Cunningham, Clark, KY from import 1817 and Patton stock. Barbee had bred Effie once before she had Ferdinand, and she was evidently pregnant, because the 1881 stud book lists Airdrie of Surprise by Airdrie 2d, red bull calf bred by F. J. Barbee and born 1873. Joshua bred Effie at least 6 more times, as evidenced by births in the registry:
1874, Mar 9, red cow calf, Isabella.
1875, red bull calf, Surprise by Ferdinand.
1876, April 12, red cow calf, Effie 2d by Ferdinand.
1877, June 27, red bull calf, Beecher by Ferdinand.
1878, May 5, roan cow calf, Roan Effie.
1879, March 30, red cow calf, Esmeralda by Ferdinand.12
Newspaper Mention26 October 1875The 26 October 1875 edition of the Newport Daily News, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, reported that Joshua and his family arrived home safely.
Newspaper Mention30 October 1875The 30 October 1875 edition of the Newport Mercury, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, reported Joshua C. Brown, formerly of this city, but for years a resident of California, has returned to this city with his family. He will go back to his home in Surprise Valley, California, next week, but his family will remain here, that his children may enjoy the benefit of our excellent schools.

Surprise Valley, lying partly in California and partly in Nevada, just at the eastern foot of the Warner range and to the west of the upheaved volcanic table-lands of Northern Nevada, is the bed of an ancient lake, vestiges of which remain in the alkaline sinks and flats, of which there are three principal ones in the valley. The northern and western portions of the valley between the mountains and the lakes are very fertile and highly cultivated, being well watered by the mountain streams. It contains about live or six hundred inhabitants, exclusive of the military detachments stationed at Bidwell. The people of the valley find the chief market for their surplus of hay and grain aud the other products of the soil at Bidwell, where it is used for the supply of the garrison. I heard much about a railroad which was contemplated and which had been surveyed from Mill City on the Central Pacific Railroad through by way of the Granite Mountains, Deep Hole, Squaw Valley, &c, to Surprise, theuce to proceed across the mountains and into Oregon. I am unable to see how such a railroad, of which both the construction and the running expenses must be very large, could pay expenses for a long time to come.13

Biography1887In 1887: The History of Newport County, Rhode Island, includes the following biographical sketch of Joshua:
"Joshua C. Brown, though a native of Newport county, and at present one of its enterprising citizens, has spent much of his active life in California. His grandfather, Peleg Brown, resided in Narragansett, though he was born in Newport county. Among his children was Pardon Brown, who early removed to Middletown township, where he spent much of his life as a farmer. He married Lucy, daughter of Captain Nathaniel Armstrong, of Narragansett, and had children: George A., Joshua C., Mary A. (Mrs. George Coggeshall) and Nathaniel A. He contracted a second marriage with Sarah, daughter of Captain Peleg Sanford, their children being: Lucy (Mrs. James Brown), Peleg, Lydia (Mrs. John Sanford) and Pardon.
Joshua C. was born February 27th, 1828, in Middletown, Newport county, R.I., and from early youth until the age of eighteen assisted in the farm his father owned, meanwhile pursuing the English branches at the neighboring public school. He determined to acquire a trade and chose that of a wheelwright, establishing himself in connection with his brother in his native township. At a later date, varying somewhat his occupation, he devoted his skill to the work of a house carpenter. Mr. Brown, like many ambitious spirits of that day, followed the tide of emigration to California in the year 1850. His business, that of a cattle dealer, necessitated many trips across the plains, no less than ten long and wearisome journeys being made in succession with droves and herds. At a later day the superior facilities offered by railroads rendered the shipment of cattle an easy task. Mr. Brown was for several years located in Nevada, and subsequently purchased from the government a ranch in Northern California. Here he engaged in the raising of blooded stock, shipping from Kentucky short-horn Durhams and from Rhode Island Southdown sheep. In 1883 he returned to his native county, located in Newport, and has since devoted his time to building and improving the property he owns in the city.
Mr. Brown was married on the 14th of January, 1853, to Jane, daughter of Captain William Smith, of Middletown. Their children are: Nebraska, wife of A.A. Tilley; California, wife of Daniel Chase; Nevada, married to Herbert Tilley; Esmeralda, Pardon and Joshua C. Mr. Brown was a second time married May 2d, 1872, to Elizabeth A. Ward of Newport, a descendant of Governor Ward of Rhode Island, and daughter of Henry Ward of Middletown. Mr. Brown is a member of the First Baptist church of Newport, which he joined at the age of fourteen. He, with others organized a Sabbath school in Modoc county, California, and was until his departure one of its most active supporters and workers. This school formed the nucleus around which grew a prosperous church, of which he was an exemplary member. Mr. Brown is an avowed prohibitionist and earnest in the cause of temperance as in all Christian work."14

Biography

Birth31 December 1801Capt. William Smith was born on 31 December 1801 in Middletown, Newport County, Rhode Island.1,2
Marriage24 May 1827He and Sarah Peckham were married on 24 May 1827 in Middletown, Newport County, Rhode Island, William Smith and Sarah Peckham were third cousins. Their great-grandparents John Barker and Phoebe (Barker) Peckham were siblings.

In addition to the children who lived to adulthood, there are two infants listed on Sarah's gravestone, Harriet F. (aged 10 months) and Mary A. (aged 14 days). They were probably born in the gaps between Sarah and Jane, and between Caroline and the 2nd Harriet F.3
ResidenceWilliam lived at Third Beach Rd. in Middletown, Newport County, Rhode Island,
Marriage28 September 1842He and Almira Barker were married on 28 September 1842 in Middletown, Newport County, Rhode Island,4
Census14 August 1850He appeared in the census 14 August 1850 in Middletown, Newport County, Rhode Island. William is listed as: Will (48, Mariner, estate $2100, b. in Rhode Island)
Almira (41, b. in Rhode Island)
Caroline Smith (18) b.1832
Harriet Smith (14) b.1836
Will Smith (12) b. 1838
Isaiah Smith (8) b. 1842
Maria N. Smith (6) [dau of 2nd wife]

Living next to Hannah Smith, 56, Farm, b. Connecticut
Martha Smith, 27, b. RI
David Smith, 24, Laborer
George Smith, 18, Laborer
Margret Smith, no age readable
Another female Smith, age 16, name not readable, at the top of the next page (Irena?)

This is the second wife of William's father George, Hannah Hartshorn.

Very poor legibility for both these families.

Will died in November of this year. Almira died in 1858. Stephen G. was 12 when she died, Maria N. 14.5
Death18 November 1850He died on 18 November 1850 in Charleston, South Carolina, Since the 1850 census says he was a Mariner, and I don't see any military reason for him to be called Captain, evidently he was a ship captain. Therefore I am guessing he may have died in an accident or illness on a voyage. Unfortunately, the Newport newspaper in 1850 does not include November.1
Newspaper Mention23 November 1850The 23 November 1850 edition of the Newport Mercury, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, reported that Capt Smith was sick in Charleston -- see attached.
Newspaper Mention30 November 1850The 30 November 1850 edition of the Newport Mercury, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, reported Capt Smith's death -- see attached.

DIED
At Middletown, (on this Island) on the 8th ult. Mrs. Rebecca Smith, aged 42, consort of Mr. George Smith and daughter of Mr. David Barker of Middletown.

She had been a member of the 2d Baptist Church in Newport, for about ten years - possessing those invaluable virtues that adorn the Christian profession, and in all the relative duties of wife, mother, filial and fraternal, was a pattern worthy of imitation. As a friend especially to the poor, all such who have been the objects of charity, will have just course, while they lament her loss, to deeply revere her memory. As a neighbor, her benevolence was unbounded.

A short but distressful illness has deprived her mourning relatives in particular and the community at large, of so precious a jewel. But what greatly alleviates the sorrows of her mourning relatives is the evidence she has left behind, that she lived, so she died, in hope of a blissful immortality through the riches of grace, in a blessed Redeemer.
_________
At the time of her death, she was survived by her husband George Smith and was the mother of 6 children: Sarah, Isaac, William, Adaline, Isaiah and David.
Burial25 July 1817She was buried on 25 July 1817 at Middletown Cemetery in Middletown, Newport County, Rhode Island.4

LR&C was Landers, Frary & Clark, incorporated in 1862, and had been making metal household items in New Britain since 1842.

"From the beginning Landers, Frary & Clark manufactured products to  make life easier for the American Housewife. Food scales, coffee grinders, cake mixers, bread makers, coffee pots and percolators along with tableware of every description were all in production before the 19th century turned to the 20th. With the advent of electricity in the first quarter of the 20th century Charles Smith, president of Landers at the time, realized the potential and put into production an electric percolator, iron, toaster and coffee urn. The success of these items led to an entire line of electric products including vacuum cleaners, electric ranges, washing machines, blenders, electric mixers and electric blankets (to name a few) which, along with the non-electric items, were sold all over the world." excerpted from the New Britain Industrial Museum website.
