His parents, James M. and Eliza (Feddis) Gilleylen, natives of Mississippi,
the former born in 1818, had a family of four children, viz., Bedora C.,   
John W., Thomas B. and Nancy E. The father was engaged in agricultural     
pursuits until the breaking out of the late (Civil) war, when, in 1863, he 
enlisted in the Confederate service, under Gen. Samuel Gaston, and served  
until the close of the war, when he returned home and resumed farming, and 
died May 9, 1866. Politically he was a staunch Democrat. His wife died May 
9, 1857, a worthy member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.
