He married Mrs Parmelia H. (Fleeman) Busbin (1843-1927) in December 1866 and they had 10 children together between 1867 and 1885. Genealogists have her name as Penelope Harriet Fleeman and Harriet Penelope Freeman; her gravestone is inscribed with Penelopha H. Brown. Her widow's pension application of 1910 has her as Parmelia H. Brown and states she was married as Parmelia H. Busbin.
