Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 27, 1889
Roberdell
Richmond County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Aug. 20, 1972
Parkton
Robeson County
North Carolina, USA

Second child and second daughter of Alexander Calhoun McLeod and his 1st wife, Ida Cornelia Bennett. When Lillie was seven, her mother died, leaving three daughters and two sons. A year later, her father married Della Lorena Manning, who would be her stepmother for the next 8-1/2 years.

During that time, in 1902 when Lillie was 12 or 13, the family relocated from Richmond County to a 44-acre farm in Buie, Burnt Swamp Township, Robeson County NC. Della died in 1906, leaving two sons, one daughter and five step-children. Older sister Bessie married in 1907 and left the household. Later that year, when Lillie was 18, her father married Mary Catherine "Kate" Terry.

On May 7, 1911, Lillie married William Gordon Britt in Buie. The Britts were long-time residents of Robeson County. Gordon worked in fertilizer sales.

In the early years of their marriage, Lillie and Gordon lived in Buie. They became the parents of six children. The first four (Leslie, Aleene, Ida Mae and W.G.) were born in Buie. The younger two (Irene and Russell) were born in Parkton where the family settled permanently.
