Surnames: BROWN, CAMP, FILES, GILLISON, MANN, SHEPARD, TULLIS

Trying to locate info. on Thomas BROWN, m. Drucella CAMP, and had the following children: Joseph Milton BROWN, b. Oct 27, 1889; Oral; Walter; Cindy; and Iva.  Thomas died when the children were small and Drucella remarried a gentleman with last name MANN.  Milton m. Mar 28, 1917 in Fairfield to Mary Edna GILLISON, and the following children were b. in Fairfield: James, Eldon, Leona, Dale, and Alice.  They moved to IA in 1929 and later had Earl and Rachel.  The story has been passed down that Milton had owned a lumber mill in Wayne Co. at one time and that the first church services held in Fairfield were held in the GILLISON home.  The GILLISON's also had oil wells in this area.  We do have info. on the GILLISON side but none farther back on the BROWN side other than Thomas and Drucella.  We believe that Thomas served with Co. K, 111th Infantry during the Civil War.  I would appreciate any info. that anyone has on any of the above surnames or following individuals: Hull, Jet, and James GILLISON; and Nancy SHEPARD.  My great uncle still is living in Fairfield and states that the surnames FILES and TULLIS are somehow related on the GILLISON side.  Thank you for any info.
