Marriages
7 Jun 1853
Barsheba Gillum and William Ray

19 Nov 1853
Richard Gillem and Charity Boggess
[Though a transcription of a marriage record states that Richard Gilliam married Charity Rogers on 19 Nov 1853, a close reading of the original reveals that it was recorded that Richard Gilliam married Charity Bogus not Rogers. However, if one considers other records including census records, it was James Gilliam, not Richard, that actually married the Charity Bogguss on 19 Nov 1853.]
