Notes for WILEY HOLLAND GANDY:

Copied from Genealogical Database: Wiley Holland Gandy. Frances Gandy-Walsh posted it on Ye Old Gandy Village at myfamily.com.

From "HISTORY OF LOUISIANA" (page 422).

W.H. Gandy is a worthy tiller of the soil of Claiborne Parish, Louisiana, and of the 500 acres of fine land which he now owns he has 300 acres under cultivation, nicely improved, with good buildings of all kinds and a good

cotton gin. He was born in Greene County, Alabama July 26, 1828, a son of John and Elizabeth (Holland) Gandy, both of whom were born in North Carolina, their marriage taking place there, and their removal to Alabama dating 1818. They opened up a large farm in Greene County of that State, and there reared their family. Mr. Gandy served as sheriff of his county in North Carolina in his younger days, but aside from this held no other public office, being content to devote his time to tilling the soil. He died about 1877, and his wife in 1843. Of a family of four sons and four daughters born to them, the daughters and two sons only are living. W.H. Gandy, the immediate subject of this biography, being one of the latter. He grew to manhood in Alabama, had the advantages of the common schools, and after attaining manhood was married there, in 1851 to Miss Edith Thornton, a daughter of Elisha Thornton, a very prominent man of Greene County, in which Mrs. Gandy was born, reared,

educated and married. The fall succeeding their marriage they came to Claiborne Parish, Louisiana, where Mr. Gandy opened up a large tract of land, being the owner of a number of slaves. He has been a resident of his present property since 1857. In August, 1862 he joined the Confederate Army, and was detailed to oversee the farms of families in the neighborhood, doing no military duty. He is a Democrat, takes an active part in parish politics, and he has been a delegate to it's conventions a number of times. He and his wife have the following family: John E. (Elisha), C.A. (Columbus Albine), W.B. (Walter Bun), W.N. (Wiley Nevens), Edith (a school teacher of the parish) and Anna May (possibly Annie Mae). All the sons are married. He and his wife are members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and he has attained the highest rank in the I.O.O.F. (International Order of Odd Fellows). He has been an elder in his church since 1858, and he has taken an

active part in church matters.

Notes:

Wiley passed away July 11, 1905 and it is believed he died of high blood pressure. A family member, Mrs. Mildred Gandy Bray, says she was always told that he was simply coming down the steps of his home when he paused for a moment, feeling dizzy and then fell. Others say he grieved over the death of his son James Alexander who passed away less than a year before. Edith lived with their daughter, Edith Gandy Marsalis, until her death on October 26, 1905. They are both buried at Salem Cemetery in Athens, Louisiana.
