MABERRY BROTHERS, WILLIAM W. AND L. C. farmers, Sec. 27, P.O. Athensville. Sons of Randolph J. Maberry, who was born in Tennessee, June 18, 1827, and came to this State with his parents at an early age, and were among the earliest settlers, having arrived prior to the deep snow, settling within the confines of Greene County. He was married to Agnes E. Ferguson, of which union four children were born; the two elder ones died, and the two surviving ones are the subjects of this sketch.
