John Gilliland1

M, #330, d. between 24 April 1736 and 29 September 1738
     John Gilliland married Jane ?2 John was found in the 1723 tax list for Somerset County, Maryland. He was located in the Hundred of Baltimore (a hundred was a geographic subdivision of the county), household number 113, taxed as head of the house.3 He was also found in the tax lists for the Hundred of Baltimore for the years 1724-1733.4 In 1729 a certain Ann Barton of All Hallows Parish, was accussed of bearing a bastard child in October 1729. John Rogers was the father. Ann was fined 60£ and John paid her debt for which she was to serve him for 6 months.5 Sometime between 1731 and 1735, a Bill of Sale between Elizabeth Atkins, as grantor, and John, as grantee, was entered into the land index for Somerset County, Maryland, Liber A.Z.6 For the years 1734-1738, John was found in the Hundred of Bogerternorton.7 Sometime between 1735 and 1738 John apparently purchased some land from John Bishop and his wife as a deed was recorded. This could be when John moved from the Hundred of Baltimore to the Hundred of Bogerternorton.8

On April 24, 1736 John made out his will. He left 100 acres of land to his cousin Robert Paten and the rest of his estate to his wife Jane, (whose name was spelled three different ways in the will - Joan, Jeane, and Jane).1

John Gilliland died between 24 April 1736 and 29 September 1738 at Somerset County, Maryland.1 The tax list for Somerset County, Maryland for the year 1739 shows John's widow, Jane, listed in the Hundred of Bogerternorton as head of the household, but untaxed.2 By 1740 there were no Gillilands in the tax lists for Somerset County. There were also no deeds recorded showing the sale of the property purchased by John.

Alexander B Gilliland1

M, #334, b. 4 February 1815, d. 24 April 1883
     Alexander B Gilliland was born on 4 February 1815 at Brown County, Ohio.1 He was the son of John Gilliland and Mary Miller.1

The following account of Alexander Gilliland's life was taken from notes written by his son, Lyle Willis Gilliland.

Alexander lived with his parents on their farm until the death of his father, John Gilliland, on December 19, 1843. Alexander was afflicted with rheumatism most of his youth and early manhood, so much so that he was confined to his bed a great part of each year from the time he was 15 until 28 years of age. When a young man, he followed "teaming" a great deal, not being able to follow any employment that required much walking or use of his feet as his toes were drawn up by rheumatism. He was tall and slender, standing 5 ft. 11 in. in height and weighing 140 to 145 lbs. He had blue eyes, black hair and a fair complexion.

He moved to Putnam County, Illinois early in 1846 and purchased a farm. Alexander B Gilliland married Mary Truehart Willis, daughter of Stephen D. Willis and Nancy Ann ?, on 19 May 1846.1 Alexander B Gilliland and Mary Truehart Willis appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Douglas County, Oregon, at Deer Creek, enumerated 2 June 1880. Their children Harriet Caroline, Inez and Lily were listed as living with them.2 He and Mary had three children while living in Putnam County. On March 17, 1853, they left and moved to Oregon, reaching Fosters (the first house in Willamette Valley, Oregon) on October 2, 1853. He purchased a farm on Deer Creek some 10 miles east of Roseburg in Douglas County, Oregon where the family settled on November 15, 1853 and there resided until September 27, 1879 when he rented out his farm and moved into an unknown place .

On Monday morning, April 15, 1883, he was taken with chills which developed into pneumonia and grew worse until seven minutes before 1:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, the 24th, when he died. The following is an extract from a letter by his daughter, Inez, written to his son Lyle on Monday the 23rd:

"Dear Brother: Father is worse today and is very sick indeed. The doctor says he will be better soon but we haven't much faith in what he says as he has not helped father any yet and he grows weaker rapidly. He is delirious today, but knows everyone. He tries to talk but we can understand but little he says."

Alexander B Gilliland died on 24 April 1883 at Roseburg, Douglas County, Oregon, at age 68.3 He was buried on 25 April 1883 at Roseburg Memorial Gardens, Roseburg, Douglas County, Oregon.3,4

The following obituary appeared 28 April 1883 in the Roseburg Plain Dealer, Roseburg, Douglas County, Oregon:

Died — At his residence in this city, on Tuesday morning, April 24, 1883, Alexander B. Gilliland, aged 68 years, 2 months and 20 days. Deceased was born in Brown County, Ohio, in 1815, where he lived until the year 1846, when he moved to Ill. From thence he crossed the plains to Oregon in 1853, and settled on his farm on Deer Creek, where he lived with his family until about four years ago when they moved to Roseburg. He was married to Miss Mary Willis in 1846, which union remained harmonious until severed by the cruel hand of death. Eight children were born to them, of whom five only remain to mingle their tears with the stricken wife and mother. Deceased was a devout and faithful Christian until the time of his death. By the demise of this man, this community has lost a valuable member and the family an affectionate and kind husband and father. Deepest sympathy of the entire community is with the bereaved family.3

The rest of this narrative was also taken from the notes of Lyle Willis Gilliland:

"My father was an industrious hard working man, a farmer and a mechanic. He lacked the education necessary for a first class business man and his tastes led him to think of other things; he had no desire for a great deal of wealth and therefor never accumulated a great deal. When he died, he was possessed of his farm on Deer Creek in Douglas County, Oregon consisting of something over 700 acres of land, nearly all under fence, with a good orchard, house and barn. The orchard was planted and the improvements made with his own hands. He also owned a residence and 2 lots of land in the city of Roseburg. All this property was not worth more than $7000 to $8000. He was free from debt. In politics he was what is termed a republican party. He belonged to what was known as the anti-slavery party, never was an office seeker and never held a political office. He always took a lively interest in politics and public men and was free to express his opinions at any time without a thought as to whether they would please or displease.

"He was never a member of any secret society. On the contrary, he was bitterly opposed to them all. He was strictly temperate in all his habits, was a professor of christianity since early manhood and practiced what he professed. His advice and his example were always good. I never knew him to eat a meal at home without first returning thanks to God. He was a kind indulgent father and lived happily with my mother until his death."

"Friday 21st October 1881 I went out to Roseburg on a visit to father and mother and took Charlie and May with me. My uncle Owen L. Willis was here and went out with me.
