Thomas Westhaven Gaffney and Missiniah Burns

I've been doing some research on a friend's family genealogy. I am not related to the Gaffney's and neither is my husband. But I wanted to post what I've found out on this family.


Captain Robert Michael Gaffney and Mary Smith had a son named Thomas Westhaven Gaffney. Thomas Westhaven Gaffney was the last of their nine children born 10/8/1825 in a part of Spartanburg County, SC that would later become Cherokee County, SC. He had 5 older brothers: James Madison Smith Gaffney, Squire Henry Green Gaffney, Cornelius John Gaffney, Dr. Gustavius Joseph Gaffney and William Godolphin Gaffney. And he had 3 older sisters: Nancy Riley Gaffney (married John Carruth Henderson), Lucinda Riley Gaffney (married Joseph Austill or Austell), Melinda Riley Gaffney (married ? McNeel or McNeil).

Thomas W. Gaffney married E. Misseniah Burns. Misseniah's name was spelled a bunch of different ways. Here are all the ways I found it spelled: Minnie Burns Gafney, Minnie Burns Gaffney, Mipaniah Burns Gaffney, Missaniah Burns Gaffney, Marcelina Burns Gaffney, Messiniah Burns Gaffney, Misisniah Burns Gaffney, Misaniah Burns Gaffney, Messaniah Burns Gaffney, Missinah Burns Gaffney, Messeniah Burns Gaffney, Isiah Burns Gaffney, Missionari Burns Gaffney, Mipanich Burns Gaffney.

Misseniah Burns was born sometime between 1826-1828. Here are the sources of her date of birth:

Misseniah Burns Gaffney died a rather horrible death on 5/18/1908 as you can read in her obituary.

The Gaffney Ledger
"Messiniah Gaffney, an aged lady who lives in the northern part of Gaffney, had the misfortune to be severely burned Thursday evening.  She was alone in the house at the time, and it is supposed that her clothing caught from her pipe as she was smoking.  The servant who lives with her heard her fall to the ground and went to her rescue.  With the assistance of Rev. I. N. Stone, succeeding in extinguishing the flames, but not before [the] old lady was severely burned.  Both Rev. Stone and the servant had their hands painfully burned in endeavoring to extinguish the flames.  Mrs. Gaffney is the mother of Adolphus Gaffney, M.L. Ross and Worth Little.  Dr. Littlejohn, who was called to attend Gaffney, says that her injuries are serious and that he has little hope of her recovery.  She is more than eighty years of age.  Gaffney died yesterday morning at 10 o'clock from the effects of the burns.  The  funeral will take place at Providence Baptist Church."

Cause of death: Chronic cholecystitis*
Buried: Oakland, 5/19/1931
*Chronic cholecystitis - Cholecystitis is inflammation of the gallbladder, a small organ near the liver that plays a part in digesting food. Normally, fluid called bile passes out of the gallbladder on its way to the small intestine. If the flow of bile is blocked, it builds up inside the gallbladder, causing swelling, pain, and possible infection. A gallstone stuck in the cystic duct, a tube that carries bile from the gallbladder, is most often the cause of sudden (acute) cholecystitis. The gallstone blocks fluid from passing out of the gallbladder. This results in an irritated and swollen gallbladder. Infection or trauma, such as an injury from a car accident, can also cause cholecystitis. Acute acalculous cholecystitis, though rare, is most often seen in critically ill people in hospital intensive care units. In these cases there are no gallstones. Complications from another severe illness, such as HIV ;or diabetes, cause the swelling. Long-term (chronic) cholecystitis is another form of cholecystitis. It occurs when the gallbladder remains swollen over time, causing the walls of the gallbladder to become thick and hard. The most common symptom of cholecystitis is pain in your upper right abdomen that can sometimes move around to your back or right shoulder blade. Other symptoms include:
Nausea or vomiting.
Tenderness in the right abdomen.
Fever.
Pain that gets worse during a deep breath.
Pain for more than 6 hours, particularly after meals.
Older people may not have fever or pain. Their only symptom may be a tender area in the abdomen.
The main treatment for acute cholecystitis is surgery to remove the gallbladder (cholecystectomy). Often this surgery can be done through small incisions in the abdomen (laparoscopic cholecystectomy), but sometimes it requires a more extensive operation. Your doctor may try to reduce swelling and irritation in the gallbladder before removing it. Sometimes acute cholecystitis is caused by one or more gallstones getting stuck in the main tube leading to the intestine, called thecommon bile duct. Treatment may involve an endoscopic procedure (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP) to remove the stones in the common bile duct before the gallbladder is removed
