For eighteen years he taught school, riding back and forth on horseback. He then went into the mercantile business, buying the Penn's Valley Trading Company, under the firm name of Boozer & Gilliland, which later became J. & R.

The latter engaged in teaching during his early manhood and later conducted a store at Warrior's Mark. In 1808 he settled at Smithfield, now a part of Bellefonte, where he followed merchandising for a time and later resumed teaching. His death occurred before the marriage of his daughter, he and his wife passing away at Boalsburg.

     John Gilliland was born at Spring Mills, Centre County, July 15, 1806, and his death occurred March 5, 1888. His parents were Joseph and Catherine (Cowden) Gilliland, and his grandfather was James Gilliland, a native of Ireland. The Gillilands moved from Chester into Centre County, where Joseph Gilliland settled, acquiring land in Potter Township, which was the old family homestead and was retained as such until 1906, when it was disposed of. John Gilliland lost a leg in early youth but nevertheless he became a useful and very active man and although he was forced to use a crutch, became so accustomed to its use that he could walk faster than others who had full use of both limbs. For eighteen years he taught school, riding back and forth on horseback. He then went into the mercantile business, buying the Penn's Valley Trading Company, under the firm name of Boozer & Gilliland, which later became J. & R. Gilliland and continued until 1857, when he took up his residence in Karthaus Township, where he had up to this time, conducted a branch store. In politics he was a Democrat. He married Lydia Smith, who was born March 11, 1808, at Boalsburg, Centre County, Pa., and died in Karthaus Township, Clearfield county, January 22, 1889.

James Gilliland

Descendant Chart of James Gilliland and Hannah Laird
     James Gilliland was born circa 1745 at York County, Pennsylvania.1,2 He married Hannah Laird circa 1765 at Pennsylvania.2 (David Laird, Hannah's father, mentions her in his will. "In the name of God Amen that I David Lard of Washington County, State of Virginia... And to my daughter Elizabeth McCune twelve pounds and my bed and furniture and the remainder of my estate to be equally divided amongst my daughters Mary Feril and daughter Hannah Gilliland... At a court held for Washington County the 19th day of July 1803...").

At the start of the Revolutionary War, the Indians being troublesome on the frontiers of Pennsylvania, the men where he resided were assigned to guard and protect the frontiers from near the Potomac to the Susquehanna. He was out on this service for three months in a company commanded by Captain John McConnaghe and was then honorabley discharged. He and Hannah then moved to Augusta County, Virginia where he was enrolled in a company of militia commanded by Captain James Tate.1

James was appointed a Lieutenant and performed a tour of duty under Captain Alexander Long against the Indians in the vincinity of Tygart's Valley.1

About 1779, he and Hannah moved to Washington County, Virginia.1 In 1780 he was drafted and marched in Captain Andrew Colville's company in a detachment commanded by Colonel William Campbell in the expedition called King's Mountain. He also marched in a company commanded by Captain Alexander Montgomery in a detachment of militia under Colonel Arthur Campbell against the Cherokee Indians.1

James was listed on the 1782 tax list for Washington County, Virginia under Captain James Montgomery's Precinct showing one taxable, three horses, and sixteen head of cattle.3 On June 26, 1786 James received a grant for 200 acres of land on the waters of the middle and south fork of the Holstein River [sic] in Washington County.4 He was listed on the tax list for Washington County dated August 3, 1787 showing three males under the age of 16, three horses, and three head of cattle. On May 21, 1793, James and Hannah sold 125 acres on the north side of the Holston River to Hugh Mahaffey for 100 pounds. This was part of the tract of land that was granted to James by patent dated June 26, 1786.5,6 On that same day they sold 30 acres, part of the same original 200 acres, to Hugh Neely for 10 pounds.7,8 On May 17, 1795, Samuel and Margaret Weir, of the county of Knox in the territory of the United States south of the River Ohio, sold to James for £100, 152 acres of land on the waters of the south fork of the Holston River which was originally granted to Samuel on May 1, 1787.9 On February 15, 1802, James and Hannah sold 125 acres of land on the south fork of the Holston River to Bartholomew Neel for £140.10 On December 12, 1804, James exchanged warrant No. 1466, dated July 22, 1803, for 70 acres of land situated on the south fork of the Holston River adjacent to land that he and Hannah lived on and also adjacent to land that their son, James Jr., lived on.11

In the 1806 Personal Property Tax List of Washington County, Virginia there were the following Gillilands names which I believe are James and his sons:

Gilliland, James
Gillihan, James, Jr.
Gilliland, Joseph
Gilliland, William
Gilliland, David
Gilliland, John
Gilliland, Robert.12

On January 10, 1810 James received another 70 acres of land situated on both sides of the south fork of the Holstein River adjoining his son James Jr.13 James Gilliland appeared on the 1810 Federal Census of Washington County, Virginia, with a household listed as two white males 16-25, one white male 26-44, one white male 45 & over and one white female 45 & over.14

James applied for a Revolutionary War pension on November 27, 1833.1 He died after 1834.

There is a possibility that James was the son of John Gilliland and Jane ?. He is listed as such in the book The Loving Irish - The Gillilands compiled by Martrue Hutcheson Greenwood.15

Two marriages were found listed in the book Washington County, Virginia marriages : ministers’ returns, 1776-1855 abstracted by Marty Hiatt & Craig Roberts Scott. They were Elizabeth Gilliland to Moses McConnell, January 31, 1805, James Harper, minister; and Mary Gilleland to Ebenezer McEwen, May (8 or 9) 1905, Edward Crawford, minister. Either one or both could be daughters of James and Hannah.
     On November 17, 1770, James and Samuel Gilliland, of County of York, purchased 170 acres of land from George Adam Bright and his wife Mary for £80 in Beverly Manor, Augusta County, Virginia at the head of a branch of the South River. It's not known yet if this was the James Gilliland who married Hannah Laird. But, if James is indeed the son of John Gilliland from Menallen township, York County (now in Adams County), Pennsylvania, that would make sense as John and Jane had sons named James and Samuel.16
