Notes for THOMAS L. GILLIAM:
Thomas became a member of the 48th VA Inf of Scott Co., VA. Private Thomas
D. Gilliam, age 18, was absent without leave from his infantry division on
several occasions. He was captured by Captain Smith in England Valley where
he had a dugout in a bank under a Mulberry tree. Thomas was brought to the
south side of what was known as "Big Ridge" near the McNutt farm close to the
Tennessee-Virginia line. Captain Smith's horse bolted and ran back up to the
top of the ridge in a chestnut grove, where the McNutt family is presently
buried. Captain Smith and one of his men went after the horse. Captain
Smith, it was said, had given his men explicit orders not to harm Thomas
Gilliam.

While up on the ridge, Captain Smith and his charge heard a shot where the
men had been left. Captain Smith told his companion, "There....... they've
gone and shot Tom Gilliam and it will take my life to pay for it."

Thomas Gilliam, age 18, had been shot and his body thrown into the folks of
young dogwood tree, which stood until cut down in the 1920's. The land is
still owned by the Lyon family. The death of Thomas Gilliam is on record in
Scott County, VA. Captain Smith was later shot and his murders never found.
historical rumor says that his body was thrown into a cave in the sinks (a
sort of marsh), and was never seen again.
