NASHVILLE (AP) – The Tennessee House for the first time has two brothers serving at the same time.

Freshman Rep. Timothy Hill of Blountville on Tuesday joined his brother and fellow Republican Rep. Matthew Hill of Jonesborough in the lower chamber of the General Assembly.

Tennessee State Library and Archives research found rare occasions of siblings serving in the House and the Senate at the same time. It also identified examples of brothers who served in the same chamber, but never at the same time.

Tennessee political history also includes an instance of brothers Alfred and Robert Taylor running against each other for governor in 1886. Democrat Robert Taylor won that contest, and Republican Alfred Taylor won when he ran in 1920.
