“Mr. W. J. GILLILAND Dead.

“Mr. W. J. GILLILAND, 49 years of age, died at his residence, corner of Fourteenth avenue and Sixteenth street, East Highlands, Monday night at half past nine o’clock, after having been ill three weeks with typhoid fever. Mr. GILLILAND leaves a wife and five children. He is survived by his mother, four brothers and four sisters, who all live near LaFayette [Walker County, Georgia?]. He was a member of the Missionary Baptist church. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. W. L. COLSON at the house at three o’clock yesterday afternoon. The interment was at Clapp’s Factory Cemetery.”

[Columbus (GA) Daily Enquirer-Sun newspaper, Wednesday, 07 MAR 1900.]

Note: if a state is not specified for a town, it is generally assumed to be within the same state as the publication – in this case, Georgia. LDS records do suggest that there were GILLILANDS early on in Walker Co, GA. However, Lafayette, GA, is quite far to the north, so it is possible that this refers to Lafayette, Chambers Co, AL – or perhaps the somewhat larger and better known Lafayette in Orleans and Lafayette Parishes, LA.

I am interested in learning about Mr. GILLILAND’s background and family connections. Thanks – John in TX
