I am not a Brown, but did a look-up on the name in early Ft Nashborough history....and the name Erwin jumped out at me.....

Brown, John.....A son of John Brown was killed by Indians in 1788, during an attack on Brown's Station, located on the west fork of Mill Creek....John Brown was killed by Indians near Holly Tree Gap, in what is now Williamson County, while locating a grant with Tenin and Grimmes....According to one source, he left a wife ____ ERWIN, and two children, and his widow afterwards married James Campbell.

so it seems there was an ERWIN family connected to the Browns of Ft Nashborough area.....maybe Erwin TN is named after them?

There was an Andrew ERVIN who arrived Ft Nashborough with the Donelson flotilla, April 24, 1780.
