In Response To: 1860 Gillins Slave owners ()
: Does the name Gillins, Gillens, Gillons..etc show up ANYWHERE in
Hello. The name as shown above does not appear in either the 1850 or the 1860 Slave Schedules for SC. However, I did find these names:
1850: GILLAND, James R. -- Fairfield Dist.
GILLELAND, Robert -- Laurens Dist.
GILLELAND, W. D. -- Charleston Dist.
GILLILAND, Martha -- Laurens Dist.
GILLILAND, William D. -- Union Dist.
1860: GILLANE, James -- Abbeville Dist.
GILLAND, J. R. -- Williamsburg Dist.
GILLILAND, Robert -- Laurens Dist.
GILLILAND, Robert J. -- Pickens Dist.
Knowing how some of my relatives in SC pronounce names, it might me worth it to consider these or even "Gilliam"
