 Includes NotesNotes for John Burton Killian:
Tombstone reads J.B. Killian

The spelling of our last name changed somewhere between 1924 and 1961. John B. Killian and Alice Margret (Maw) Reiordan (my great-grandparents) both spelled their names Killian and so had their ancestors before them for many generations. They knew the correct spelling of our name. John B. died in a mining accident in Ducktown, TN in 1924. The death certificate reads John B. Killian. Alice Margret Killian signed her daughter, Frances' report card in 1931 Alice Killian. On Alice Margret Killian's tombstone her name is spelled Alice Margret Killion. So maybe Frances and Clarence changed the spelling. Who knows. We will probably never know. Clarence Killion's family spells their name Killion.
