The Brown Diaries, Volume II
Shown is the cover of Volume II, picturing Main Street, Edwards before the fire of July 4, 1894, of the Diaries of William H. Brown and Nancy A. Brown.  William was the son of Robert Brown, 1819 Scottish immigrant.  The Edwards Historical Association was given a limited number of copies, to sell, by the editors of these books.  This local couple kept diaries for a number of years.  They were interested in the activities of the community as well as their family so many items of local historical and genealogical interest are included in this 183 page soft cover book.  The editors wrote the book in the exact wording of the entries of the couple so one will find phonetic spelling and colloquialisms, making more interesting reading.  The price is $10.00, plus postage and handling.

Volume I, well over 200 pages, will have to be ordered from the publisher ... Heritage Books, Inc., Publishing Division, 1540 Pointer Ridge Place, Bowie, Maryland 20716.  The Browns were ancestors of Dick Brown, Edwards resident and former Town Supervisor.
