In 1910 R.G. Knox opened the Knox Funeral Home in Maysville, Kentucky. During the first several years of operation, he moved the location of the facility to several downtown buildings before finally settling his business in the historic Cox Building. Mr. Knox passed away in 1933, leaving his son, Albert, to continue the operation of the funeral home. Albert moved the location of the firm to a home on East Third Street before finally purchasing the building where Knox and Brothers Funeral Home is located today. Albert’s son, Billy Joe Knox, would later join his father in daily operations in the early 1960s. In 1980 Robert G. Brothers joined the Knox family as a partner of the firm, where the name of the firm was changed from the Knox Funeral Home to the Knox and Brothers Funeral Home.
