Jane “Gilliam” Foreman was born in October of 1876 to my Great Great Grand-Parents Daniel & Hannah “Nelson” Gilliam in New Bern, North Carolina. When Jane was approximately 2 years old the Gilliam family moved to Worcester, Massachusetts. Her regular occupation was that of a servant for the Raymond family.
Jane died of Fibroma of the Uterus (tumors) with Peritonitis at Worcester City Hospital. John H. Foreman was her husband. They had only been married since October 22, 1902 (2 1/2yrs). They had no children. The informant was her sister Mrs. A. Cully [Nora Ann Cully] who was my Great Grand Mother which would make Jane My Great Grand Aunt.
Wow! Jane died at the young age of 28 1/2 years. I think about my Aunt Jane, and it saddens me to think that she did not get to live a full life. She had no children and she had no decedents to carry her direct line. The cause of death was a medical condition that many people today will not die from. The medical field has come a long way, and I am so glad that we live in this time in history.
