Birth: 1832
Butler County
Ohio, USA
Death: Aug. 9, 1857
Ohio, USA

On pg 27, Hazel Stroup, author tells us that Sarah Elizabeth Anderson was the wife of Isaac [Anderson], and also tells us that she was the daughter of A.B. Gilliland. She died "ae 26 yrs". So she must be one of the daughters of Rev. Adam Baird Gilliland. Since there are a few Isaac Andersons buried at Venice or elsewhere, caution is needed to discern which one was her husband.

We learn another clue: "IV. SARAH ELIZABETH GILLILAND, sixth child of Sarah Hopkins and Adam B. Gilliland, was married in 1856 to Isaac Anderson, a cousin of Ichabod Fergus Anderson and Samuel D. Anderson. She died August 8, 1857, and is buried at Venice, Ohio. [p158, A chapter of Hopkins genealogy: 1735-1905,By Ella Warren Harrison]

I was sent a birthdate of 18 Jan 1832, but no primary source cited; also this is Butler County, Ohio, not Richland County,[sic] OH.

GILLILAND?/GILLIHAN marriages to ANDERSONs in Original Papers: In looking on pg 24, Register of Gilchrist papers (see Agnes Cilley entry), I note that one woman named "Elizabeth Gillihan" is named as a first wife of C-15, one Isaac Anderson, son of B-4,Fergus Anderson (son of Euphemia Morehead) and Mary Dick. This Isaac is shown as having a second wife, Orie McCafferty. It is unknown how precisely this family grouping ties in here or not. Verifiable sources are needed. Which Isaac is son of Fergus at Venice Cem? Has this primary source been studied by an Anderson researcher?

Looking further on this same pg 24, I see a Jane Gillihan named as a wife of C-1, Fergus Anderson, son of B-1, Robert Anderson (son of A-1, Isaac/Euphemia Morehead) and unknown wife. Perhaps a West Virginia researcher will find the answers.

Caution: I notice that a new husband was added here by another findagraver for this Gilliland woman this week, June 2013; Perhaps new answers have been discovered. There may be or are other errors in the many Andersons (conflicts with mss and or with cem records) -- Perhaps the entwinement will never be straightened out.
