Posted by Joseph Brown (cousin) On Friday, May 8, 2015
I believe this man was my father's (Joseph Slater Brown) 1st cousin. My father still speaks fondly of his boyhood visits to London, which most likely included times with this man and another cousin Bob. Please convey our deepest sympathy to the family and please pass my email along as well as we have lost contact info and would like to stay in touch.
