This is all I have found on Brown's Mill and this particular family. The mill was built in 1873 by Robert Fulton Brown. It is (was ?) over the East Fork of Stones River near Lascassas, Tn. Robert served in the Civil War under Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest. He had a brother named Ed who married Lucille McAdoo. Ed and Lucille had a number of children. Among them were:Berdie, Veshti, Grace, and Print. Print married Lizzie House in abt. 1883. I have found no record of Robert marrying. But he must have as a grandson, Robert Leffel Brown who gave gave the interview for the article in the Murfreesboro paper dated 1988, refers to Print as "cousin."
My Nashville cousin doesn't seem to remember too much about the family. But says that my grandmother was related to the McAdoos so maybe Willie Brown was also a daughter of Ed and Lucille. I'll just have to keep digging. Any of this ring any bells for you? Alice
