Today in Family History - 29 Jan

My 4th great-grandmother Nancy Gilleland (Anders line) died on this day in 1870 in Milam County, Texas [1, 2, 3]. She was buried in Hamilton Chapel Cemetery in Milam County [1]. The 1870 United States census mortality schedule indicates she died of liver disease [3], however she died within one month of giving birth to a child so perhaps a complication existed there as well.

My 7th great-grandfather Antoine Trabue, Jr. (Baldwin line) died on this day in 1724 in Manakin, Goochland, Virginia [4]. The location of his grave is not known.
