BiographyEdit

William Sanford Brown was born in the beautiful Collins River Valley of Warren County, Tennessee. He preached at least occasionally at Shiloh Methodist Church, before moving to the "Backbone" near Beersheba Springs, Tennessee in Grundy County, Tennessee on land that once belonged to his father-in-law Isham Dykes (1773-1871). As an early Methodist minister in this region, he rode a circuit that included several churches. He is buried at the Shiloh Methodist Church cemetery.
