Robert A. Browder was born to David and Mary (Smith) Browder in Fulton County, Ky., on the 10th day of August, 1840. A farmer, he gave four years of the prime of life to his country's call in defense
of the Southern cause. At the close of the war, returned to his home in Fulton County and on the 29th day of November, 1870, was married to Miss Phila M. Patterson. To this union were born five children, three of which have long since passed away, there remaining Mrs. Bessie Bence and Miss Jesse Hunter Browder, now living in Fulton, Ky.

For ten years he continued in his chosen avocation on the farm, until failing health demanded a change to some business of less exposure, and in 1875 moved to Fulton, Ky., where he has lived incessantly in various avocations and serving his friends of the county as Assessor for eight years and Magistrate five years, which office he now holds. He and family are all members of the Methodist church, South, and he is adjutant of Camp Jim Pirth, No. 880, U. C.

Maine Twenty Seventh Infantry Co. G. Regimental History.

Capt. Edmund A. Dixon of Company G, was born in Eliot, Maine, February 10, 1821, and died there January 13, 1888. Prior to the war of the rebellion, he was the first lieutenant of an Artillery Company, stationed at Fort Mc' Clary, Maine, at the mouth of the Piscataqua River ; but this Company was never mustered into the service of the United States. His business, both before and after his term of service in our Regiment, was that of a butcher, and for some years before his death, he was employed at this business at Brighton, Massachusetts. He was a man of an athletic make, and powerful physique, who possessed an easy and ready ascendency over his men, and who appeared to be unusually strong in their confidence, and was thus, of course, a successful company commander. I think in no Company in the Regiment was esprit de corps more marked than in this. I did not know the Captain well enough, personally, to characterize him more specifically.
