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.
