Asaph was born in 1759 in Stow, MA. He is the son of Silas Brown and Judith Marble.

Asaph was a veteran of the Revolutionary War. He was a private in Captain Ezekiel Knowlton's company, Colonel Dike's regiment, in Templeton, MA. Records available include a pay abstract for travel allowance from Dorchester MA, dated Nov. 20, 1776; also a pay abstract for gun and blanket money, etc., dated Dorchester, Nov. 30, 1776; also same company and regiment; service from Dec. 14, 1776, to March 1, 1777; also pay abstract for gun and blanket money dated Dorchester Heights, March 31, 1777.

Asaph, along with many other veterans, was granted land in payment for his military service. He moved from his home in Stow, MA to his grant in the new Waterford, Maine plantation in 1783, settling on Lot 5, R5, for which he is recorded paying taxes in 1797 at the town's incorporation.

Other first settlers of Waterfords from Stow were Jabez Brown, a lieutenant in the French and Indian War, and an adjutant in the Revolutionary War, and Thaddeus Brown, Jabez' son from neighboring Harvard, MA, who settled in 1785-6. Thaddeus bought Lot 8, R7, for 50 cents an acre.

Also at Waterford by the time of incorporation were Abijah Brown (lot3 r5), William Brown (lot8 r7), Silas Brown (lot 7 r7) , John Brown (lot 9 r 7) and Adonijah Brown (lot 3 r4).
