By Sue Hunter Weir

The Daughters of the War of 1812 will place a new marker for Asa Clark Brown, one of three confirmed War of 1812 veterans buried in Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Memorial Cemetery. The other two veterans, James N. Glover was honored in 2010 and Walter P. Carpenter, will be honored in 2012. John Carpenter, Walter”'s brother, may well turn out to be a War of 1812 veteran as well. If that turns out to be the case, four of the approximately 200 War of 1812 veterans known to have died in Minnesota will have been buried in Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery.

Asa Clark Brown, one of the Cemetery”'s War of 1812 veterans, has a new military marker. His old marker was placed on his grave by members of the Minneapolis Cemetery Protective Association in 1932. After almost 80 years of wind and weather, the carving has all but disappeared, and it was time. In the next few weeks, his new marker will be installed, and his old marker will be removed and placed flat on his grave.

On Monday, May 30, 2011, at 9 a.m., the Minnesota chapter of the Daughters of 1812 will dedicate Mr. Brown”'s new marker. Everyone is welcome. Please join us in honoring Asa Clark Brown.
