still researching him. Most likely buried in this cemetery, marked with a rock. There are several graves near Rebecca Gilliam Kemp marked only with iron ore rocks, so it is most likely one for her father Miles and one for her son George and possibly a brother, William.
Married 9/22/1808 in Jefferson County, GA to a Mary Peebles

Most probably the son of William Gilliam and grandson of Burrell Gilliam and wife Ann Johnson Gilliam.
Served in Captain Gambol's militia in Georgia during the War of 1812.
