The author has many biblical, probate, deeds, census, obituary, and other records as
proof of the foregoing material. He has arbitrarily cut off the families with the generation that
would be great-great grandchildren of John Woodson and Susan Venable Gilliam, but more
information is available on some of these families if a particular need exists.
Corrections and/or additions to this material are welcomed -- especially any errors in
the above so that they can be corrected. In fact, any supplementary information on these
families would be highly desired.
