Meade County Browns

Return to Stith Valley home page.

This page is dedicated to the Meade County Browns.  I don't know any kinship to the Stiths at this time.  However there may be a connection.  There was a Brown family living in the old Stith house when it burned.  One of the boys was killed in that fire.

If you have any information on the Browns in Meade County, please let me know.   Here are old portraits which I have collected:
