Josie C. Gilliland1

M, #5283, b. circa 1878
     Josie C. Gilliland was born circa 1878 at Indiana.1 He was the son of Josiah Gilliland and Mellissa J. French.2 Josie C. Gilliland appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Zionsville, Boone County, Indiana in the household of his parents, Josiah Gilliland and Mellissa J. French.1

Note: There is a possibility that Josie may be Joseph (Jody) S. Gilliland. Some paper work seems to support this. However, the DNA test results of a descendant of Joseph (Jody) S. Gilliland and the test results of a descendant of the earliest known ancestor of Josie C. are at a distance of 4. From the website of FTDNA "A 33/37 match between two men who share a common surname (or variant) means they may share a common male ancestor. This relationship should be confirmed with additional testing. The only way to confirm the relationship is to test additional family lines and to find where the mutations took place. By testing additional family lines you can find the person in between. This 'in betweener' is essential for you to find."

Carrie and Charlie moved around to several different states and finally, after many years of traveling, moved back to New Mexico to be near their extended family and friends. Carrie had many trials and some sad times in her life. Her mother died when Carrie and Mary were 13 years old. Their father sent the girls to Tennessee to live with an aunt for several years.

In October 1960, Carrie and Charlie's only son was killed on the island of Guam while serving in the U.S. Navy. It was shortly after his death that they moved to New Mexico. Carrie was a wonderful cook and always trying new recipes on her family and friends. She loved to sew and was a beautiful seamstress. Her hobby that she loved more than anything was knitting. Her family and friends have been given beautiful afghans, doilies and sweaters.

Carrie was preceded in death by her husband, Charlie; her son, Charles; her parents; her stepmother, Ethel; her four brothers, her oldest sister and her twin sister, Mary.

Carrie is survived by her daughter, Clara Lee Waite and spouse, Warren, of Meridian, Idaho. She is also survived by five grandchildren, Laura Kay, Charles, LeAnna, Brian and James, all living in Idaho; by 17 great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Dolores Gililland; and numerous nieces and nephews.

My mother was a very independent lady. She lived her final years as she wanted and did some fun things along the way. Our little Energizer Bunny's batteries just finally gave out. She is ours eternally now. She knows we love her and will miss her.
