John Henry Gilliam

“Death’s Harvest.

Aged 97 Years.

John H. Gilliam died last Friday, Jan. 14, at his home near Leftwich in the 3rd district of this county. Deceased had lived to the ripe old age of 97 years, having first seen the light of day in Wythe County, Virginia, on the 24th day of November, 1800, a little over a year after the death of George Washington. When 8 years of age, he, with his father and mother and three other children, moved to Tennessee and settled near Rock Spring in this county, at which time this section of the country was very sparsedly settled. Shortly after the closing of the Civil War, he moved to the 3rd district, where he has since lived. He leaves one sister, Mrs. Nancy Hardison, who will soon be 83 years old, and one son and daughter, who have both passed the marks of “three score years and ten.” His second wife, who is 73 years old, also survives him. The funeral services were conducted at the residence and the burial took place in the (Robert) Hardison graveyard near Rock Spring.”.
