Frontier peace officer. Brown was the city marshal of Caldwell, Kansas. He died in the line of duty while attempting to arrest two brothers, Steve and Jess Green, who had escaped from the Texas state penitentiary. The Green brothers shot Brown when he approached them in the Red Light saloon in Caldwell. Shortly afterward, a posse of lawmen caught up with the Greens and killed them when they resisted arrest. Marshal Brown is memorialized at Panel 32, E-11 on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC.
