Robert Singleton Hilburn,
born Sep 27 1846 in Fort Shelton?, Lamar Co, Tx.
died May 6 1948 Graham, Young Co, Tx.
This photo was taken in the 1930s, probably in Lamar County or Young County Texas. It was scanned at my momâ€™s years ago and is the only picture we have of him that I know of.
Robert was a son of Francis Hilburn and Marietta Shelton. He served as a Confederate soldier in the Civil War, enlisting at age 15. He was discharged later that year on account of age then re-enlisted, unknown date, serving until end of the war. He married Nancy J McMurtry Dec 4 1874 in Barry Co, Mo and had 4 children that Iâ€™m aware of.
He was a son of my 3rd ggrandparents.
