Notes for CHARLES GILLIAM, JR.:
Charles Gilliam, Jr. (1740-1827)
[4G-Grandfather of Elizabeth Southard Hilles]

Sussex Co., VA Deed Book P, p.9 shows an indenture, presented for recording 02 Nov 1826, transfering 130 acres of land from Charles Gilliam to his daughter, Martha. The transaction specifics indicate boundaries with lands held by Howard Tatum, Williamson Clanton, Henry Felts, Henry I. Harrison, and Isaac Andrews. According to the document, Charles died intestate, leaving his wife, Polly and five children, including Martha. The land had not yet been divided among the children; it was Charles' intent that his widow and his mother, Martha, continue to reside on the land that his father, Charles, Sr. had earlier acquired. Henry I. Harrison and George Blow were justices of the peace in the county, and presided over the indenture.

An early indenture, dated in 1822, proves the marriage between Charles' daughter, Dorothy, and John Southard [see marriage notes for Dorothy Gilliam].

At this point in our genealogical investigation of the Gilliam-Southard family, we can speculate that both families moved to NC from VA. Wills, land deeds, and other court documents tie these two families as they migrated from southeastern VA south to Granville and Orange Counties of NC. between 1780 and 1810.

In the group sheet for Ruth Gilliam (1803-1870), we reference a Charles Gilliam witnessing a 1789 land transaction where John Southard acquired 296 acres at a location near Reedy Fork and Haw River, on the Orange/Guilford county line in NC. This Charles would have to have been mature, thus born < 1768, or at least 21 years old. [Orange Co., NC Deed Book 4].

Various estate and indenture records show settlement of a line of Charles Gilliams in southeastern VA, specifically in the Sussex/Southampton county area. [SEE NOTES FOR CHARLES' FATHER, CHARLES]

Will (in possession of WCH) refers to sister Polly and her daughter, Mary H. Porch, along with the legacy left to his wife, and three children. Also, witnessing the will are Joseph Clanton and Benjamin McGee, family names connected to Charles' father and grandfather.

     
Children of CHARLES GILLIAM and MARY ? are:

  165 iii.   Martha Gilliam, born Abt. 1775 in Sussex Co., VA; died Aft. 1827140.
  Notes for Martha Gilliam:
According to Sussex Co., VA Deed Bk P, p.9, Martha was indenture recipient of 130 acres of land of father's property, left to the family by Charles' ancestors.
