GILLIAM, Mary Susan – (d. 1871)
Near Mifflin, Tenn., on the 17th of August, 1871, Mary Susan, daughter of G.W. and S.J. GILLIAM, aged 2 years, 4 months, and 2 days.
Deceased was a remarkably sprightly child, dearly beloved by parents and friends. Thus it is often that the brightest flower is doomed first to face, on earth, to bloom anew and forever in heaven.
