Sunday’s Obituary - Martha "Mattie" Ann Masters Gilliland


Martha Mattie Masters Gilliland Obituary

What I find the most interesting about this obituary is the assertion that she was related to Isaac Watts.  (I believe it says “grand niece”, although is is partially obscured. )  Mr. Watts did not leave any direct descendants but I have not looked into this any further.  Not sure who or where the author of the obituary got this idea.  Needs further research but I don’t want to go on a “Wild Goose Chase” either.


Happy Hunting!
