I’m looking for a connection between Joseph C. Gilleland and Joseph W. Gilleland.I believe Joseph C is uncle to Joseph W.This is what I know:
Joseph W. Gilleland (b. 1825 KY) (d.---, MO), m. Sarah (Sally) Stephenson (Stevenson) 1841. They had the following children: Anderson Howard, b. 1844, d. 1930 Martha Ann, b. 1849, d. 1931 Lawson Newberry, b. 1853, d. 1942 Thomas Jefferson, b. 1854, d. --- George Washington, b. 1857, d. 1934 Andrew Jackson, b. 1857, d. 1937 Pairalee, b. 1860, d. 1944 John T., b. 1863, d. 1939
Pairalee married William Jefferson Harpool on 25 Aug, 1881 in Greene County, MO, and one of their children kept a small photo album containing photos with notations as follows: Joe Hilton, “cousin” Emma Hilton (Emma Britton) Joe McClellan Arthur McClellan
Joe and Emma Hilton are the children of Susan Jane Gilleland and William Hilton (Helton). Susan Jane Gilleland is the daughter of Joseph C. Gilleland (1805-___) and Elizabeth Watson. Emma Hilton (according to several researchers) married a Talbert Britton whom I can’t find.
Joe and Arthur McClellan are the children of Nelson McClellan and Nancy Ann Hilton (daughter of Susan Jane).
I believe that Joseph C. Gilleland is the uncle of Joseph W. Gilleland.Can anyone provide insight/proof?
