I am interested in learning anything I can about these people and/or finding other descendants from them. Of particular interest to me are the names of the parents or siblings of Mary Ellen Lowe, G. Gilliam, and Mary Elizabeth Eaves.
Many thanks to Rootsweb for making this inquiry possible. I look forward to hearing from all interested parties.
