Subject: Hi!

Hi, I'm new to the list. A member of the Poythress list directed
me here.
I'm descended from John Gilliam and Elizabeth Poythress. Their son William
married Mary Jarrett. I'll post the rest of my line later. Hubby is
sleeping, and I'm being quiet.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

For those who asked: The book where I found the Ellis/Gilliam letter (Old
Churches, Ministers and Families of Virginia Vol. II, pages 460-462) was
reprinted by Genealogical Publishing Co. of Baltimore in 1966 -- originally
published in 1857 in Philadelphia.

Also, I found an earlier Gilliam into VA -- Christopher Guillam was slain in
the Indian massacre near James City in 1622. There were no other Gilliam --
alive or dead -- that were listed in VA at the time. This apparently
doesn't mean much to any of us because he didn't seem to have a wife or
children, but I thought it was interesting.

My Aunt Geneva Hill Talley started the Hill genealogy 32 years ago
after discovering a trunk of old family letters upon her grandmother's
(Florence Fisher Hill)
death.. She traveled all over MA, TN, VA, and AL tracking every
possible lead and source. When Aunt Geneva died, I inherrited her
collection, and have added to it for over 20 years (I started helping
her as a child). I have avoided the VA lines because the records are so
few, and so tangled. I think these discussion lists are wonderful because
so many people can exchange information. I look forward to being part of
this list. (Corrections are welcome).
