I found nearly 90 Browns from Iowa who died during the Civil War. Many were in the age
range you gave. I'm not seeing a Lee County residence for any of them though. I did
find one man named Otis P. Brown, age 31, b. New York. He died of disease in 1863 in St.
Louis, Mo., and was buried there in the National Cemetery. He served in "E"
Company, 34th Iowa Infantry. His residence was listed as New York. But no explanation why
he was in an Iowa regiment. This may or may not be your guy but some of the data fits.
