Inscription. About one mile S.W., this pioneer from S.C. settled on Nolichucky River in 1771. Brown's purchase of 2 tracts of land from the Cherokee on March 25, 1775, was made beneath a great oak tree still standing nearby. His sandstone marker reads "Jacob Brown, d. Jan. 25, 1785." The brick house nearby was built by his grandson, Byrd Brown, about 1800.
