Tarleton Brown (1756-1845) served as a Captain in the Revolutionary army, and as a scout in Georgia and South Carolina for the remainder of the war in the South, later publishing an eyewitness account of his actions at the Siege of Savannah in 1776. A planter in the Barnwell and Orangeburg Districts, he served Barnwell as its first sheriff from 1800-1804, and later was a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives and Senate. This portrait was done by a traveling artist about 1834.
