Gilly Barber Stephens Brown

Gilly Barber, born 1796 in Chatham County, North Carolina, died after 
1870, probably in Clay County, Alabama. Gilly married James S Stephens 24 
Dec 1818 in Clarke County, Georgia, and then married Daniel Brown 8 May 
1845, also in Clarke County, Georgia. Gilly and Daniel Brown were both 
still living in 1850, when her brother Griffin Barber retained her share 
of James Barber's estate, most likely because she owed money to the 

Gilly Barber Stephens Brown was living with the George Byron McGuire 
family in 1860 in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, and with the same family in 
1870 in Clay County, Alabama.
