Notes


Aka: Killion The 1910 Lowndes Co. MS. census shows Blanche's father as Henry Killion, age 40, born in Alabama. Her mother as Susannah, Age 35, born in Ala.
Blanche, age 8, born in Ala.
Barney, age 5, born in Ala.
Lila, age 3, born in Ala.


The spelling of "Killian" and "Killion" is often misinterpreted, so don't let that concern you. The names were all spelled "Kilian" in Germany, but most (not all) descendants from Lincoln County, NC spell the name "Killian". .
