Looking for my g.g.g grandmother, Hester THOMAS, b. Belleview Twp, Washington Co, abt 1840. Cenus shows her occupation as 'cook'. She may have been a slave to a family named THOMAS (possibly a John THOMAS) in 1860. She later moved to Kingston Twp in Washington Co. Hester's daughter, Emeline THOMAS b. 1854-57 in Belleview Twp, Washington Co was listed in the census as a mulatto - so her father may have been Hester's owner/employer. If anyone is researching this family please contact me and I'll gladly share what information I have found.

Violet Silvers was born in Washington County in late 1814 and married William Isgrigg in Washington Co. in 1832 (per marriage records). They later lived mostly in Crawford Co. Violet was still alive in the 1900 census. Who were her parents? As of the 1850 census, James Silvers was living in Washington Co. and was the right age (about 70 or b. about 1780), but that is not much to go on. Is anyone researching this family?

I am looking for any info on the Gilliam/Gillam families of Washington, Mo. My ancestor was George GILLIAM 1819-?, of Washington County, Mo., and his son George Wilson Gilliam 1847-1924 and G.W.'s wife Anna Mathis 1879-1954. They mostly lived in Harmony Township, near Quaker, MO. I have quite a bit of info on the Gilliam/Gillams and believe they derive from a forebear named Solomon Gillam, originally from VA. by way of N.C. thru TENN. Maybe some day there could be a Gilliam forum.
