Died aged 86 years, so evidently born about 1815.

On the 1860 census of Muscogee County, Georgia, she appears as Amanda GIDDINGS, aged 40 and born in Mississippi, evidently already a widow; and on the 1850 census of Stewart County, Georgia, with husband Samuel GIDEON, who was aged 45 years and born in NC.

"WAS AGED 86 YEARS: Mrs. Amanda GIDDENS Passed Away Sunday Night. // Mrs. Amanda GIDDENS, aged 86 years, died at the residence of her granddaughter, Mrs. Charles SMITH, No. 314 Eighth street, Sunday night at 11 o'clock. Mrs. GIDDENS succumbed to a stroke of paralysis, having suffered one previously. // Mrs. GIDDENS is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Emma C. CRANE, Mrs. Lucy JEPSON, of this city, and Mrs. M. E. BLACKMON, of Arkansas. She is also survived by a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren. // The funeral occurred yesterday afternoon and the services were conducted by Rev. J. h. SCRUGGS, at the residence. The following gentlemen acted as pall bearers: Messrs. M. M. MOORE, D. A. ANDREWS, J. B. TARVER, G. J. PEACOCK, E. R. SAMPEY and W. D. SMITh. The interment was in Linwood cemetery." [Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun newspaper, Tuesday, 19 FEB 1901, p. 4.]

Sexton's records for Linwood Cemetery indicate that Amanda GIDDENS, aged 86 years, was buried 18 FEB 1901 in the PATRICK lot (Section C, Lot 298, per Sexton's system; Section K, Lot 65, per Autry system). She is evidently in one of two marked, but unidentified, adult-sized graves, one a brick ledger, the other outlined with brick.

Also buried in the PATRICK lot are Alfred Milligan PATRICK, II, and his wife Laura C. (LANKFORD) PATRICK; Mrs. Ellen F. NOBLE; and Mrs. Lucy JEPSON.
