I am looking for information on the Wilbanks of Nixburg, AL (Coosa County). Elizabeth Jane Wilbanks Girdner was my great-grandmother, born in 1878 (in Coosa County, AL, I think.). Her mother's maiden name was Gilliland, her father served in Confederate army and was born in Georgia.
Elizabeth married Thomas Jefferson Girdner (T.J.)in 1897 and lived in Nixburg, AL.They had 10 children. Elizabeth Wilbanks Girdner, her mother and father are all buried in Rehobeth Cemetery, Nixburg, AL.
I have been told that there is some Native American blood on Elizabeth's side and just trying to determine if this is from the Wilbanks line or the Gilliland line.
