Biography of Louise Brown Family

Little is known of the Louise Brown family; it is unclear when and to whom she was born and when she married. Brown resided at 816 New Jersey, Lawrence, Kansas for at least five years. By 1917, a son, William C, and his wife, Bertha, were proprietors of the Lawrence Pantatorium, a dry cleaning business at 12 West 9th Street.
