Jacob was a son of Godfried and Margbeth Zilliox. He had married Nancy Ellen Smith on February 17, 1887 in Vernon County.

Nancy died at the age of 42 and her obituary from the January 8, 1910 Nevada Daily Mail is shown to the right.

Sometime after Nancy's death, Jacob Zilliox married Etta Burford of Nevada.

The obituary for J. J. Zilliox was in the August 28, 1918 Bronaugh Journal. It tells that he was buried at Worsley Cemetery.

Thanks to SJ White for sharing this nice portrait of JJ and Charlotte (Marshall) Zilliox.

Frank Monroe Zilliox's death certificate from Vernon County confirms that he was born July 30, 1877 in Vernon County to John and Charlotte (Marshall) Zilliox. He died October 24, 1960, and was buried at Clarksburg Cemetery near Garland (Bourbon County), Kansas. Garland is on the state line not far west of Bronaugh.

This business card from Bronaugh is undated. It was from Charles Perry Zilliox.

The death certificate of an infant daughter of C. P. Zilliox confirms the name of C. P.'s wife. Viola Zilliox died August 8, 1913 at birth due to "shock due to compression of cord in birth." Her parents were listed as Charley Perry Zilliox and his wife Chloe Shanholzer Zilliox. The infant was buried at Worsley Cemetery.

The death certificate for C. P. Zilliox confirms that his parents were John J. Zilliox and his wife Charlotte Marshall Zilliox. Charles was born February 24, 1874 near Bronaugh (although Bronaugh was not a town until 1886). He died February 24, 1940, in Nevada, where he and his wife Chloe had been living.

This bed was purchased at a Zilliox estate sale about a mile east of Garland and a half mile south. It is 3/4 size.
