R B McBrayer, 1871-1905


He was the first husband of my g-g-grandmother, Julia Ann Callaway. They had 8 children together in the fourteen years they were married, including a set of twins, Madgie and Maggie. (Madgie and Maggie were the first of three sets of twins born to my g-g-grandmother.)

Robert was the son of Eli Wellington McBrayer and Hattie K Thornton. There are still "oldtimers" near the little community of DeGray, AR in Clark County who talk of Robert's reputation as a kind and gentle man, who died too soon of "kidney trouble."
