Richard GILLIAM Bible
Updated January 15, 2012

Overview:
The Family Bible of Richard Gilliam (1760-1839) and Elizabeth Glover Gilliam (1775-1850). From this record and other records it is evident that Richard is the son of Epaphroditus Gilliam and Elizabeth Gilliam, his wife, whose deaths are recorded below. Richard’s wife waa Elizabeth Glover, the daughter of Edmund Glover and Mary.

The Bible tells us that Wiliiam who died in 1789 is the brother of Epaphroditus. It is highly likely that the Morans, McCormicks, Molloys, and Sanders are related by marriage, since they appear on the same page as William. In fact, David Molloy and Rhoda (whose death is listed below) named a child Gilliam Molloy. John and Molly Morain, whose deaths are also listed named a son Gilliam Morain.
