Lunie Mae Gilliam Mills

Gilliam Lunie

Lunie Mae Gilliam was born on August 23, 1890 in Maury County, Tennessee.  She was the third child born to John Francis (1863-1936) and Mildred Gertrude (Neatherly) (1867-1901) Gilliam.  She was my great-grandmother.  We called her Mammy Mills.

Lunie was welcomed by her older sister, Eunice Ada (born October 8, 1884) and brother Willis G (born June 24, 1887). Their younger brother, William Leslie (born February 18, 1894) would come later.

Lunie Gilliam married Milton Everett Mills, son of Marshall R. Mills (1857-1939) and Nancy Lorra Comelia Clark (1863-1935) Mills, on September 18, 1910 in Maury County, Tennessee.   They had three (3) children:  Ethel Elizabeth Mills Harmon (1911-1990), Floyd Mayhue Mills (1913-1981) , and Mildred Louise Mills (1915-2002).

I remember Mammy to be smaller in stature, maybe under 5 feet tall.

She died on December 13, 1981 in Maury County, Tennessee.  She is buried at Jones Cemetery, Maury County, Tennessee beside her husband, Milton Mills.
