Hillery Gould Brown

Hillery Gould Brown was born in 1859 in the last years of slavery.  The first record I located places Hillery in the probable town of his birth, Murfreesboro, Rutherford County, Tennessee.  This census record finds Hillery married (11/20/1881) to the former Bettie Roberson with two sons and two daughters (William Hobart, Henry Lee, Fannie Irene and Ellen Lorrelle) .  Hillery was a farmer who could read and write.  Hillery worked a variety of jobs throughout his life and lived until at least age 71.
