John was Ho-Chunk.
“Rasdell also states that White Breast had a younger brother called Na-xee-sheb-ga who was the father of John Brown whose children are now living in Nebraska.” (Jipson, 235)
This is almost certainly the John Brown living at the Winnebago Agency in Thurston County, Nebraska in 1910 (see Census). His wife, identified only as "Mrs. Brown," was born in Iowa in 1858, and married him in 1870 when she was only 12 years old.
