My grandfather, Charles McBride Brown, s/o John Dennis Brown gave me the following information in 1954: The Presbyterian Church in Sturgis is found on Kelsey Street. It has in it's stained glass window the names of it's former Pastors. W.W. Brown is one of them.
This window was removed from the old church and installed in the new one. The old church was called, "The Old School, Presbyterian Church". This church is now called the first Presbyterian Church and is sometimes called the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
The stained glass window with Reverend William Washington Brown, D.D., set in.........Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Kelsey Street, Sturgis, Ky.
Daddy Brown, as I called my grandfather gave me this list of the churches his grandfather preached:
1856 - The Cumberland Presbyterian - Upper Alton, Madison, IL.
1859 - The Columbia Presbyterian - Upper Alton, Madison, IL.
1868 - The Anderson Presbytery - Caseyville, Union, Ky.

William Washington Brown, D.D. Died 8 February 1894 in his home at Sturgis, Union, Kentucky..............
Charles Price Brown writes: "While I was at home to vote at the Pride Precinct in Union County, my brother and I visited grandpa and grandma's grave site. I understand that the small cemetery is known as Mt. Pleasant.
The marker is in fairly good condition, with grandpa's name on one side and grandma's on the other. The side facing the grave contains no writing but there are small foot markers with initials for each grave. The cemetery has long been abandoned and has grown up with trees and bushes. I am sending you a map showing the location.
