I believe the couple you are looking for can be found in the 1850 Madison County, TN Census:
Name:       Cynthia Gilliam
Age:       50
Birth Year:       abt 1800
Birthplace:       North Carolina
Home in 1850:       District 3, Madison, Tennessee
Gender:       Female
Family Number:       469
Household Members:       
Name       Age
John Gilliam       50 (Born VA)
Cynthia Gilliam       50

If this is the right family I have a chart I began several years ago, that I never really fleshed out, but I have about 4 generations.

John died 20 Apr 1852 and is buried in Wallace Cemetery, Madison County, TN. The 1852 death date fits nicely with the 18 Mar 1853 settlement of estate.

His line of Gilliams has roots in Scott County, VA and before that most likely Buckingham County, VA as many Buckingham County, VA Gilliams settled in Scott County and environs.

The deed and others involving the Gilliams and Lewises is posted on my Scott County, VA webpage:
