Joseph Lytton Brown worked for the NC&StL railroad. From what I know he started in
November 1918 as a fireman and later worked in the shops and also a crew caller. In
the late 1930's, 38 or 39, he went back to work after being laid off due to the Depression,
as a engineer. He was involved in one wreck in the late 1940's at the Tompson Lane
Crossing in Nashville. He also served a chairman of a safety committee in 1944.
He retired on September 25, 1952.
