Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society
Closing End of September Until Spring
Local Resident, Randy Brown, to Speak on the Journey of Civil War Soldier Jesse Hyer.
Randy's love of Civil War history is from a personal level. Jesse Hyer, Randy's great-grandfather on his
mother's side (Phyllis Hyer Brown), was a soldier in the Ohio 110th Infantry Regiment. Randy's main interest
is on the experience of his great-grandfather. The family has over 190 personal letters written to him by family,
and soldiers during his three years in the war.
A member of Witnessing History in Lexington, Ky., Brown has toured a number of battle grounds, and
recently this summer toured three battlefields in north-central Virginia.
Randy was born and raised in Darke County, living his early life in the Arcanum area. A metalworking
specialist for Petro Choice Ohio, he is the current pastor at Northside Community Fellowship of Greenville.
Randy founded Haiti Church Ministries. He travels to Haiti a couple times a year and sponsors Bible
conferences and training seminars.
