Seeking Information About Vinettie Gillam, Wife of Hiram Patton Gillam

Surnames: Gillam Gilliam Gillum
I'm researching the family of my grandmother. I have found the names of my great grandparents, her parents. Her father is Hiram Patton Gillam, born 1879, and I can find lots of information of his ancestors. Hiram was married to Vinettie, born 1879 in Hawkins county, but I cannot find any information about Vinettie's family. I cannot find a marriage record to be able to find her maiden name. Apparently they or Hiram lived in Hawkins county Tennessee for some time. In the 1910 census they lived in Yocum Station, Lee county, Virginia. Their children were McKinley, Mana, Hossie, and Ibbia. If you know anything about Vinettie, wife of Hiram Patton (HP) Gillam please contact me.

Thank you for the hints. Vinett could be the key person I'm looking for. It seems that she possibly was not married when she gave birth. I'll investigate some more, but thanks again.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have received a death certificate for my grandmother which lists her mother's name. The first name differs slightly but it could be just a typo. She is identified as Vinenette Hurd. But I still cannot find information about her by this name. If you have any information that may help I would certainally appreciate your reply.

Surnames: Falin Hurd
Thank you for this lead, which was correct. With the name we found of Vinettie Hurd, we could not be certain and continued to investigate the Hurd line. Just yesterday (2/16/13) I found a record on http://vagenweb.org/wise/death_G_1912.htm that shows the death of Nettie Gillam, and lists her mother as Martha Falin of the Michael Falin family, but shows the father as unknown. Now we'll investigate to see if the "unknown" father might have been a Hurd, as there were Hurd families living near the Falins in the 1880's. If anyone has any information that may help, please contact me. Thank you!
