Advertisement of the Kinston Peanut Company from the October 7, 1905 issue of the Kinston Free Press. Proprietors are T.B. Brown & Son.
The T.B. Brown mentioned in the ad appears to be Thomas Bradley Brown (December 25, 1850 – September 1, 1920). Thomas has different occupations listed on each census record – in 1900 his occupation seems to be “barkeeper,” in 1910 & 1920 he’s a grocery store merchant. His death certificate lists “merchant.”
