Thank you for the info. I would love to get all the information you have on the Gilliams and on Nancy Anne Johnson. Do you have dates for all of them as well? I have Burrell's father John Gilliam as born in 166 married in 1718 and died in 1737. I have Burrell as married in 1745. My email is jesusissavoir@yahoo.com if you will email me I will email you my address if it would be easier for you to make copies and mail them to me. I really appreciate the help. I have one more question. Sir Richard is Burrell's grandfather? I had Burrell's father as John Gilliam III, grandfather John Gilliam II and GGrandfather John Gilliam I. Was I mistaken or perhaps had picked info on the wrong line?

Thank you,
Iris

The Will of Burrell Gilliam leaves money to his daughter Rebecca Alley.

Are you suggesting that Rebecca Alley is the Rebecca that married Cornelius Whittington?

Rebecca Gilliam daughter of Burrell married Miles Alley. Miles leaves a Will dated 28 Jan 1807 which mentions his wife Rebecca.

A widow Rebecca Alley writes her Will in 1824.

She appears in the several census records.

It appears that Rebecca Gilliam, the daughter of Burrell Gilliam, married Miles Alley, and after Miles' death lived as his widow until her death.


What evidence do you have that Rebecca, daughter of Burwell Gilliam, married Cornelius Whittington. The Will of Burrell seems rather clear. (I have the Wills and Inventories of Miles Alley and Rebecca Alley).

I do not have all of my genealogy papers here with me so I don't know right off hand where I got this information. I am just getting started back with working on the genealogy after not having worked on it for 3 to 4 years. I would love to have copies of those wills.

Thank you,

Anyone who wishes info on this line, please send your email to maold@sunkatchers.com and request chart 5. I will send the chart free of charge. I would like to add your name as researcher to the chart. I believe some of the info originally came from Pamela, but the chart is a compilation of the work of many over the years. My goal is to have this chart as up to date as possible for inclusion with over 250 charts on my CD/DVD to be published in the near future.
