Marie,

At the end of this message I have included the information that I have on
the ancestors of your William Gilliam, son of Capt. Hinshaw Gilliam. The
earliest Flood family information is somewhat doubtful right now. This
information is primarily from the books by John Bennett Boddie, as well as
other standard early Virginia sources such as "Adventurers of Purse and
Person" and the "William & Mary Quarterly".

Some of the Hinshaw information is from the LDS International Genealogical
Index, based on parish church records.
