Jo, thanks for replying. I have no information at all on William Riley Kimbrell, parents, siblings, etc. However, I think it is entirely possible that they could be brothers. I know a lot of times, whole families, etc. would migrate together,so they could be brothers, cousins, etc. From 1880 Montague Co.Tx.census, Wm. E. Kimbrell lists his mother & father as born in Tenn. & I know most of the children were born in Tenn. but I have been unable so far to locate them.
