Reference Material on Brown County, Kansas

I have tried to list all the books on Brown County that I have been able to find. Should you know of others please let me know, and I will add them to the list.

You will find as you are browsing this list that I have linked some of the reference material listed, that is due to the fact that those items are considered Public Domain and are not subject to copywrite laws and the reference material has already been uploaded on to the internet. Also you will notice books that are called White Cloud Kansas Chief or the Weekly Kansas Chief, these were compiled by John and Enid Ostertag, and even though these mainly deal with Doniphan County, Kansas it also has references to quite a few Brown County folks. They have also published several books on Doniphan County Kansas only. Good luck in your search.
