1. Maude Nevada Gilliam Giddens *,1 daughter of George Rufus Gilliam * and Our Harriet Didymus Holloway *, was born on 26 Sep 1892 in TX Fannin County, Savoy, died on 30 Mar 1979 in Lubbock, Lubbock, Texas2 at age 86, and was buried in Price Cemetery, Levelland, Hockley, TX.

 

Noted events in her life were:

 

Biographical note: 2003, Greenville, TX.3 Our grandmother, whom the "Blue" Giddens' kids called, "Ma",

was a sweet-dispositioned person. I never heard her raise her voice. She never even hinted at spanking or disciplining us.

"Ma' gave all her grandchildren a Christmas present, even though she would be called "low-income" nowadays. The boys got a sack of marbles, the girls, "paper-dolls", I think. That was a good Christmas in those days.

I have since lost all my marbles, but hope to find them all eventually.

Every once in a while I find one in the yard, and think of my grandmother.

They say she was red-headed and freckle-faced when she was young.

She weighed around 90 pounds when she was married, but grew to about twice that; and so have we all.

I loved going to her house when we lived in Sundown because she would always take time to talk to me. She was also a blessing to me when I was a teenager, and she lived with us briefly in Odessa.

Religion: Methodist.

FYI:4 In 1873 a post office opened; also in the 1870s the Savoy Male and Female College began operations and the Texas and Pacific Railway extended its tracks through the community. By that time Savoy had twenty-five businesses, including several cotton gins, four dry-goods stores, two steam gristmills, two hotels, and a hardware store. On the eve of World War Iqv Savoy had some twenty-seven businesses, including a bank and a weekly newspaper; by the end of World War IIqv it had thirteen businesses...

Burial: SC Winnsboro.76 Gladney Cemetery is located 9 miles from Winnsboro, S.C. at the intersection of 321 & 34, which is the 321 bypass at Winnsboro, 34 West to the Lebanon Presbyterian Church, left on 54, Jackson Creek Road (small road south to Jackson creek). The marker is on the right side of the road on a corner of a smaller road. Intersection of 213 is past the road. Return on 54 about 3/4 mile, on the left a stone marker "Gladney Cemetery" by a small dirt road, left on this dirt road and up a small hill, for 1 mile, through a gate and into a pasture. Although the cemetery itself has been deeded to the Gladney Family Association, by Mr. Ed Stevenson the old Gladney land surrounding it belongs to him, he has for years taken such an interest in the cemetery. Not many families are so fortunate. At the end of this small road, turn immediately to the right and follow the fence line around the pasture, the cemetery on the rise of the hill. The stone fence has been taken down, only the stone posts remain and the wire fence is now around the cemetery. The area, it is said, is on a part of Joseph Gladney's land (he was the first Gladney to be sheltered by the land they loved and worked so hard for.

 

Turning to the left (at the pasture) and following the fence row and across some creeks back into the woods, is the Widow Jane's property. There is a house in Winnsboro containing the stair case that was in Jane's house, also many houses contain some of the boards, Ed Stevenson took some of the boards and nails to put on his barn, so as to preserve some of the original wood from those who helped themselves to the property. Ed said,loggers took the fence out, without permission--the granite slabs of the fence are gone except for some of those on the right side of the fence, laying on the ground.

I give to my daughters Lavica and Lavina the sum of one hundred dollars each, to be enjoyed by them and their heirs forever. 2d'ly. I give the residue of all my estate after payment of my debts and funeral expenses to my daughter Sandesty, my two sons Spencer and Bryant, my wife Hannah and such other children as she may lawfully bear to me in wedlock, in equal proportions, to be enjoyed by them and their heirs forever. And it is my will that the real estate of which I may die, seized and possessed be sold by my executor herein after named on a credit of twelve months, which with the proceeds of my personal estate is to constitute a fund for the purpose contained in this and the first article. 3dly. I have heretofore given to my sons and daughters John Breeding, Nancy Ball, Elisha Breeding, Betsy Lark, Sally Fields, Winny Childers, Polly Kizer, James Breeding, William Breeding, Susannah Sloan, George Breeding, Alsy Colly and Elijah Breeding all that I intend for them to have of my estate. 4thly. I hereby constitute and appoint James P. Carrell to be executor of this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all other or former wills or testaments by me heretofore made. In witness whereof I hereto set my hand and affix my seal this 9th day of November 1833. Spencer X Breeding (seal) Signed sealed and declared as for the last will and testament of the above named Spencer Breeding in the presence of John Sewell, E. D. Kernan Virginia to wit: At a court held for Russell County on the 7th day of July 1835 This instrument of writing was exhibited in court as and for the last will and testament of Spencer Breeding, deceased, and proven by the oaths of John Sewell and Edward D. Kernan the subscribing witnesses thereto, to be his true last will and testament, and ordered to be recorded. And James P. Carrell the executor therein named refusing to take upon himself the ___ of the executor thereof, Hannah Breeding the widow of the testator appeared in open court and relinquished her right to administer. Whereupon William K. Colley who married Alsy a daughter of the testator and is still living, and who, had the said Spencer Breeding died intestate would have been entitled to a portion of his estate as a distributor but to whom nothing is devised by the will aforesaid, applied in court for administration there being no other application by any other person either as legatee or distributor; and it appearing to the court that the said widow and those interested in the estate concurred in wishing the said Colley appointed as administrator, and it further appearing that Spence Breeding an infant of seven or eight years old one of the legatees named in said will has died since the date of the said will and previous to the death of the testator, it was insisted upon by the counsel of the testator in a suit brought and now pending in the Circuit Superior Court of Law and Chancery of this county, in the name of the said Spencer Breeding against Jesse Vermillion and Samuel Leace, that the said William K. Colley was by law entitled to receive the appointment of administrator in preference to any person who in case there had been no will was not a distributee, which motion was opposed by the counsel of the said Vermillion, as well because, he contended, no right accrued to him under the circumstances, and because in the suit aforesaid the said William K. Colley was deemed an important witness in behalf of the defense, and had heretofore been summoned and depended on as such, and of whose testimony the defendants in the suit aforesaid, would be deprived if appointed the representative of the testator. Whereupon the court refused to grant letter of administration to the said William K. Colley and appointed Robert Stinson to that situation who is not interested in the estate as a legatee or distributee. And the said Robert Stinson having taken the oath prescribed by law, and entered into and acknowledged a bond in the penalty of $3000 with George Smith and George S. Jessee his securities, conditioned as the law directs, certificate is granted the said Robert Stinson for obtaining letters of administration on the said decedants estate with his will annexed in due form. Teste, James P. Carrell, C.R.C. SPENCER R.BREEDING SR was born in Augusta Co, Virginia 1 May 1759. Source: Breeding Family Bible. On 8 Jan 1833 in Russell Co, Virginia Spencer appeared before the Russell County Court and gave his age as about 73. He made a sworn statement regarding his service in the Revolutionary War. He said he entered the service from Rockingham County, Virginia about 1779. SPENCER died 24 Jun 1835 in Artrip, Russell Co, Virginia at 76 years of age. His body was interred 27 Jun 1835 in Artrip, Russell Co, Virginia Breeding Cemetery. He married twice. He married Elizabeth Finnell in Virginia 5 Aug 1786. And his bride Elizabeth Finnell,wrote her own marriage consent. "This is to let you know I am willing to have Spencer Breeding for my wedded husband given from my hand, Batsea Finnea (Betsy Finney), this the third day of August 1786." Witnessed by James Breeding. In the marriage records of Rockingham County, Harrisonburg, Virginia, Book 1. page 169 Spencer Breeding and Elizabeth Finney's marriage is recorded.

The 2nd marriage record for Hannah, widow, shows her age as 43 in 1855 which would make her born in 1811 or 1812. The 1850 Russell County, Virginia Census shows Hannah as age 40 and living with John Jessee but doesn't show relationship. Possibly Mother-In-Law, this would place her birth at around 1810. Hannah was the daughter of Claibourne Hicks and Elizabeth She married John McReynolds in Russell Co, Virginia 16 Jul 1855. Spencer bought property in Russell Co, VA, Feb 1797.

There were also larger openings in the logs over the doors and windows. If an Indian came to a door or window, they could pour hot water on them. The whole house was put together with wooden pegs. The Breeding's mined salt peter from the Peter Cave on Clinch River. They hauled it to a location near the log house and boiled it down making gun powder."

The maiden surname of Margaret, wife of Richard Gilliam, is not known and the surname "Lawson" is certainly not proven. It is speculative, at best. This identification was given by Worth Ray in TENNESSEE COUSINS, with no proof.

Thanks to Charles Ward.

was burned at stake by the Indians, 1711.

Link: 2002.120 Joined together by Don Giddens because of the name EPAPHRODITUS, no other proof, but, for me that is sufficient prrof, especially since "Tennessee Cousins" has the same.
