    During the late 1840s, Joshua D. Brown (1816-1876) traveled from Gonzales and established a cypress shingle mill on the site of what is now Kerrville. This cemetery dates from 1872, when Brown's nephew, Thomas Goss was buried here. The graves of Brown and his wife, Sarah Jane (Goss), and Sarah's parents, the Rev. John and Mary Goss, are also located here. In 1923, use of part of the Brown Cemetery was granted to the Woman's Auxiliary of a local American Legion post for a veterans' burial ground that came to be called Kerrville National Cemetery.
