Queene Anne's County MD The Brown Family.

The following interesting and valuable family history was written, under the above title, by Dr. Morgan Brown, in his family Bible, now in the possession of the widow of his grandson, William L. Brown, from which it was transcribed by the courtesy of her son, the late Dr. William L. Brown. The author. Dr. Morgan Brown, came to Tennessee from South Carolina in 1795, and was one of the leading citizens of Montgomery County from that time until his removal from the state in 1808. He laid out a town on the south bank of Cumberland river, at the mouth of Deason's creek, which was established by the legislature in 1796, under the name of Palmyra. Through his influence Congress made Palmyra a port of entry in 1797, then the only port of entry in the West. At this time Knoxville was his nearest postoffice. Palmyra was a port of entry for only two years, when it was deprived of that distinction in favor of Cincinnati. About 1802 he built a furnace some three and a half miles from the mouth of Yellow creek, which is believed to have been the first "iron works" operated in Montgomery County. He was chairman of the Montgomery County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions from 1800 till he moved to Kentucky in 1808. The writer docs not know at what time he returned to Tennessee. He died in Davidson County, Tennessee, in 1840, at the advanced age of 82 years. He was a man of strong convictions and resolute purpose. He writes with great clearness, as well as force and vigor, and outside of his family history and genealogy, his sketch of the Revolutionary period in North Carolina is a valuable contribution to the history of that great struggle. Unfortunately he docs not bring his memoirs down beyond the early years of the Revolutionary War.
