My grandmother was a Barnett and my grandfather a Dulaney both from Scott county. My father’s gggrandfather Boaninger Elkanah Dulaney was married to Judith Gilliam. I was told that she was the daughter of Jackson Gilliam and Mary Bledsoe. Can anyone tell me if this is true. Thank you.

Looking for information on David Gilliam. Do you know where he is buried.

I am a descendant of Elizabeth Gilliam d of David Gilliam and Patsy. Patsy died in Carter Co Ky after the 1870 census. Andrew Ash, executor of David Gilliam estate was my ggg grandfather. Have very good history on this branch of the David Gilliam line. My gggg grandfather married Elizabeth Adams in 1821 in Scott Co Va and shows up in the 1850 Lewis Co Ky census. Trying to sort out my Gilliam lines. There may be a connection between my William and David, if so, most likely William would be a nephew to David. Little bits and piece her and there always help. Would be deeply grateful for any shared info.
