William Milam ~ Died: Feb. 29, ????
Bottom half of tombstone.


NOTE:  Discrepancy regarding the William Milam tombstone ~ The Washington County GenWeb site has it listed as: McGready, William, M. Milan, 02 Apr. 1783 - 29 Feb. 1848. Birthplace: Wilmington, Vermont.  However William Milam is the only name I could find on the stone.  No initial M., no McGready, & no birthplace. There was a William Milam in Washington County history that was born in Kentucky & died in 1848 & I believe that the William M. Milan McGready might be in error.
