Churches of Christ: A Historical, Biographical, and Pictorial History of
Churches of Christ in the United States, Australasia, England and Canada
by John T. Brown, M. A.
John Thomas Brown was born one mile north of Alamo in 1869 (then Cageville, Gibson County.) Brown's leather-bound, 683-page edition is considered the definitive work on the history of the Churches of Christ, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and the American Restoration Movement. The photograph and text above were taken from a copy of John T. Brown's book that belonged to my great-grandfather, William Stephen Corbett.
