William was a local Pharmacist for many years, and was born to Dr. Arthur Neal and Willie (Patrick)Brown of Richland, Texas. Mr. Brown was single when he served in the U.S. Army during World War I, and was in the First Officers Training Camp held at Leon Springs, near San Antonio. After the War,William married Lilla Lee Pearce, a graduate of The College of Industrial Arts, in Denton. Their children were William Patrick Jr, Lilla Jean, Ruth and Patricia Brown.

Mr. Brown owned a family Drug Store in Richland Texas, and as a child I was always mesmerized at the large ornate cabinets, leaded glass mirrors, and fancy apothecary bottles filled with different colored liquids. He later purchased the Johnson's Drug store at Corsicana. He served as police and fire commissioner, and held membership in many civic organizations, such as the Civitan, Rotary, and Salvation Army, as well as the Masonic Shriners and IOOF.

William Patrick Brown was my first cousin once removed.
