About Fortune Gilliam

Note: "Published genealogies identify hinchia's wife as Fortune Flood, daughter of Walter Flood and Ann Browne. yet the will of William Browne in 1704 still describes her as Fortune Flood and the will of Walter Flood makes no mention of her. A close examination of the early records of Surry County reveals no one who could be the father of Fortune Gilliam. She perhaps came from Charles City County where they sold some land." Note The flag depicted in this profile is the 1776 Cambridge (Massachusetts) Flag, a fore-runner of the "Betsy Ross" Flag . The appropriate colonial banner would have been the Queen Anne Flag of 1707. This flag has the identical canton, but the field is a solid red (as the Red Ensign)
