Biography

Aily was born about 1800 based on Census records. She married Hillery Breland in 1818 in Marion County Mississippi, and was enumerated in his household until 1840. On the 1840 Census, Aily was enumerated as head of household with six children. The oldest child was to age 19. There were seven slaves listed in 1840, but none on the 1850 Slave Scedule. Perhaps the slaves were on loan or hired out from neighbors and relatives, the Thornhills and Rushings.

It appears she was a true pioneer woman who managed well after Hillary was gone. In addition to the forty acres Hillary had purchased in 1836,[1] land records show Aily purchased 40 acres of land in 1853, 40 acres in 1854, and 240 acres in 1860.[2] Perhaps these purchases were based on lands being sold for twelve and one-half cents per acre. According to author, Luke Connelly Ward, “In the early fifties a great excitement was started in Pike County by John King. An order had been issued by the Interior Department under statutory provisions authorizing the entry of lands at twelve and one-half cents.” [3]
