Ashlar Lodge No.3 recently received an email from a descendant of James Miller Brown in Queensland, Australia who gave us some additional family history which we have included on our website.

We believe James Miller Brown became a Freemason in California, prior to his arrival in Nanaimo. We have contacted the Grand Lodge of California via the Grand Lodge of B.C. & Yukon for more information on James Miller Brown. We will post whatever information we uncover.
