Re: Mary S. Brame - VA
I found Barbara's death certificate and it indeed states that both parents are born in Petersburg, VA.
I also found on the 1820 Petersburg Census the following (names are in original order):
Sam C. Brame (Samuel Childs Brame)
I am familiar with this John Gilliam (I have a copy of his Will), yet, for the life of me, I cannot figure out who your J. M. Gilliam is, who was born in Petersburg just prior to this census.
Any help would be appreciated.
