Mary Branch started a restaurant in her house on the corner of Thonotosassa and Branch Forbes Road. I remember as a teenager in the mid 1950's that she would come to our hardware store to buy pot and pans. Little did anyone know that her small restaurant would become famous through out the south. It grew and grew in size and in customer number to seat several hundred. Yes this was the beginning of The Branch Ranch. After her death the family continued to operate the restaurant until a few years ago, 2005?

Mary B. Branch died at age 92 at her residence on 3902 Thonotosassa Road, in Hillsborough Co, Plant City, Fl. She was born in Dublin, Ga, the daughter of Marcus E. Bostick and Maggie Martha Gay. The informant was Judith B. Trauner who lived at the same address as Mrs. Branch. Mrs Branch was a school teacher in Hillsborough Co, Fl and a widow when she died. Hopewell Funeral home , 6005 South State Rd 39, Plant City, Fl handled the arrangements. Florida Death certificate # 97-106853, local file # 39-97-006115.
