     Robert Gilliland was the son of Hugh Gilliland and Ann Berryhill.1 On April 9, 1751, Robert received a land warrant #285 for 100 acres adjoining land of this father, Hugh, in Hanover township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.2 On October 1, 1751, Robert assigned his right of title of this land to William McCullough.3 When Robert's father Hugh died, in late November or early December, 1751, Robert received half of his land.4,1 On February 21, 1754, pursuant to a warrant dated April 9, 1751, Robert had a little over 165 acres of land surveyed for him in Hanover township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. (This was the land that had been assigned to William McCullough.).5

Robert died before 22 March 1771.4 After Robert died, leaving "no issue", William McCullough became "heir at law" and sold the land that had been assigned to him by Robert to an Isaac Harrison on September 10, 1785 for £230.3 I have not found out what happened to the land that Robert had inherited from his father.

     Hugh Gilliland was born between 1741 and 1750.2 He was the son of Hugh Gilliland and Ann Berryhill.1 Hugh appeared on the 1770 tax list for Hanover township (east end), Lancaster County showing a tax due of £1.3 On March 22, 1771, Hugh sold 117 acres of land situated in Hanover township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, his portion of the land he inherited from his father, to Peter Wallmer, Jr. for £243. No wife was mentioned in the deed so we can reasonably assume that Hugh was not married at the time.4 Then on September 26th, Peter Wallmer placed the following notice in the Pennsylvania Gazette concerning this purchase:

"WHEREAS Hugh Gilleland, of Hanover township, in the county of Lancaster, did, some time past, sell unto me, the subscriber, a certain plantation, situate in the said township of Hanover, adjoining Lands of John Glen, Daniel Leedy, and others, containing 117 acres, for the sum of £343, upon which I paid him £30, and gave seven bonds for the remainder, in the manner following; one bond for £70 not sure when due; another bond for £20 due May 1, 1773; another bond for £25 due May 1, 1774; another bond for £25. due May 1, 1775; another bond for £25 due May 1, 1776; another bond for £25 due May 1, 1777; another bond for £23 due May 1, 1778. And whereas the said Hugh Gilleland hath hitherto neglected to make me a good title to the said land, according to our agreement, neither doth it appear that he is able so to do; these are therefore to forewarn all persons whatever, from buying or taking assignments of the said bonds, or any of them, as I am determined not to pay the same, until the said Gilleland hath made me a good title, or until I shall be thereto compelled by due course of law. Sept. 13, 1771. PETER WALLMER."5

On October 23, 1771, a quit claim deed was executed by Hugh's siblings and their spouses to clear the title for this sale.6

The following was found in the book Notes and Queries: Historical, Biographical and Genealogical: Chiefly Relating to Interior Pennsylvania, Third Series, Volume II, pages 12-13, edited by William Henry Egle and published in 1891.

"Gilliland-Berryhill — James McCreight, of Hanover, in writing to his attorney at Lancaster, Jasper Yeates, November 30, 1771, says: "S'R: These are to inform you that Andrew Berryhill with his Brother-in-law, Hugh Gilliland, came to Robert Wallace & em, & hath agreed with us to pay the costs upon Hugh Gilliland's Bond to you, and to lift his Bond. S'r, I sent your Receipt along with The Bearer, John Killcrease [Gilchrist] & I would Request the favour of you to send me another Receipt for John Gilliland's Bond, that is if you see cause to give Hugh Gilliland's Bond. I understand John Killcrease is Impowered to life s'd Bond. S'r, these are from your Humble Serv't, James McCreight." What is known concerning Hugh Gilliland. Did he not remove to Western Pennsylvania after the Revolution?"

Notes: According to a deed registered in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (Book Z, pages 381-384), Hugh Gilliland's sister, Eleanor, married Andrew Berryhill.7

Hugh still owned some land in Hanover Township in March of 1772 as a piece of land was offered for sale via the Pennsylvania Gazette on March 12th that was "bounded by lands of Hugh Gilleland".8

Hugh Gilliland married Nancy ?9

There was a Hugh Gilliland that was listed on the tax lists for Peters township, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania for the years 1778, 1779, and 1780.10 There was also a Hugh Gilliland listed as a Private 2nd Class in the Cumberland County Militia, Fourth Company, Fourth Battalion commanded by Colonel Samuel Culbertson on August 21, 1780.11 In 1785 and 1786 there was a Hugh Gilliland found listed in the tax records for Luzerne township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. Fayette County was formed from Westmoreland County in 1784. According to the History of Crawford County, Pennsylvania, Hugh had come from Fayette County.12,13

Hugh Gilliland appeared on the 1790 Federal Census of Fayette County, Pennsylvania, enumerated 1790, with a household listed as one male 16 & up including heads of families, four males under 16, and four females including heads of families.14 He appeared on the 1800 Federal Census of Conneaut township, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, with a household listed as one male under 10, two males 10-15, two males 16-25, one male 45 & over, two females under 10, two females 10-15, one female 16-25, and one female 45 & over.15 He appeared on the 1810 Federal Census of Conneaut township, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, with a household listed as one male 10-15, one male 45 & over, one female 10-15, two females 16-25, and one female 45 & over.16

On March 21, 1818 Hugh made out his will.17

Hugh Gilliland died before 18 September 1818 at Crawford County, Pennsylvania, as his will was proven on that date.9,17

John Gilliland1

M, #158
This person belongs to DNA Group 1
Group 1 List
     John Gilliland was the son of ? Gilliland.1 Pursuant to a warrant dated February 14, 1737, John had a little over 184 acres of land surveyed for him in Hanover township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania on November 15, 1739. The Return was made on March 26, 1761. (A Return of Survey is a statement certifying that the survey is complete, and a written description of the property given.).2 John "Gilleland" was listed as a taxable in the East End of Hanover township in 1750. Also listed was the widow Gilleland, and James Young.3 Between 1755 and 1763 this area was exposed to numerous Indian raids. During that time a large number of inhabitants abandoned their plantations. Among them was John.4 On July 9, 1765, John entered a Caveat, which was recorded in the Minutes of the Board of Property, against the acceptance of a survey or patent that was being granted a William Stuart for about 200 acres of land in Hanover township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania joining John's other land. This Caveat made reference to the warrant dated February 14, 1737.5

On August 17, 1769 a piece of land in Hanover township, Lancaster County, was advertised to be sold in the Pennsylvania Gazette, it adjoined land of John "Gillilen" and Peter Walmer.6 Peter Wallmer is the person who in 1771 bought land from Hugh Gilliland Jr. that he had inherited from his father.7

Note: In the February 25, 1778 edition of the Pennsylvania Gazette was the following announcement:

"WHEREAS John Gillilan, formerly of Hanover Township, Lancaster County, did obtain four bonds of me, for the payment of Fifty Pounds each, the first of which was due the first of May last, and each of the others due yearly; and the said Gillilan has removed to Virginia, and I have reason to think that he has assigned the said bonds to some person in this State: I do therefore hereby give notice to any person that has any of said bonds to call on me for the money when due, and I will not pay the interest of it as my bonds are secreted. JAMES YOUNG, Senior"

The only Gillilands that I am aware of from Hanover Township, Lancaster County are John and his brother Hugh. Hugh had only two sons, Hugh Jr., and Robert. So far I don't know if John was married or had any sons.

Thomas Gilliland1

M, #160
     Thomas Gilliland was the son of James Gilliland and Margaret Frances Burr. According to early tax lists for Chester County, Pennsylvania Thomas, a saddler, was living in East Nottingham for the years 1769, 1770, and 1774.2,3 On December 8, 1777, Thomas, sadler, of East Nottingham, Cecil County, Maryland sold two pieces of land to Elizabeth Hamilton. East Nottingham (and West Nottingham) were known as the disputed “Nottingham Lots” along the border between colonial Pennsylvania and Maryland.4 In 1779 Thomas and his brother James, as executors of their father's will, sold James Sr.'s land in Londonderry, Chester County, Pennsylvania to Samuel Love.5

Thomas Gilliland appeared on the 1790 Federal Census of East Nottingham, Cecil County, Maryland, enumerated 1790, with a household listed as four males 16 years and up, one male under 16 years, and five females. No slaves.6 There was a Thomas Gillalon that appeared on the 1800 Federal Census of East Nottingham, Cecil County, Maryland, with a household listed as one male under 10, one male 16-25, one male 45 & over, one female 45 & over.7

According to at least one researcher this Gilliland line goes into Shelby County, Kentucky through a son named Robert. Thomas Born at Sea 1737-1821.

Alexander Gilliland

M, #168, b. between 1780 and 1790
     Alexander Gilliland was born between 1780 and 1790.1 He was probably the son of Robert Gilliland Jr. though it has not been proven yet. Alexander Gilliland married Susanna Strader, daughter of Conrad Strader, on 12 January 1804 at Logan County, Kentucky.2

On May 7, 1804, Alexander was found living on 250 acres on waters of the Barren Fork of Drakes Creek in Warren County. The land was next to Conrad Strader, his father-in-law.3

Alexander was found in the tax lists for Warren County, KY for the years 1805 (on Drakes Creek), 1806 (on Barren River), and 1807 (on Drakes Creek).4

On August 14, 1809, Alexander and wife Susannah, sold 150 acres lying on water of Drakes Creek, Warren County, KY to John Gibson for $1200.5

Alexander was mentioned in the will of his father-in-law Conrad Strader dated October 22, 1812. It was stated that Alexander had already received his part of $300 as did all of Conrad's son-in-laws namely Levin(?) Williams, Andrew Harrison and William Harrison.6

On August 25, 1814, Alexander was granted 50 acres of land in Overton County, Tennessee lying on the waters of Obeys River in the 3rd District, 10th Section.7 Then on January 12, 1820 he sold this land to Joseph Couch for $550.8

From Simpson County, KY Circuit Court Orders:

Now, upon mature arbitration compl's bill be dismissed. Appeal granted to comp. to Court of Appeals upon his executing $2,500 bond to defendant Moore. July 22, 1825. (Volume A1, page 430).10

Susanna apparently died before the 1830 census as she would have been at least 41 by then and there were no females listed at that age. Alexander appeared on the 1830 Federal Census of Jackson County, Alabama, with a household listed as two males under 5, two males 5-9, two males 10-14, two males 15-19, one male 40-49, one female 10-14, two females 20-29.1 On June 1, 1831, he purchased 79.94 acres of public land in Jackson County, Alabama its description being the W½ of the NE¼ of Section 32 of Township 1, Range 8E. This is the same township and range that Robert S. Gilliland purchased land in 1859. (Also on this date a Robert W. Gilliland purchased 84.56 acres in the same section, township and range. If you platted these two pieces of land on a map they would be kitty-corner to each other. Was Robert W. Gilliland possibly Alexander's father, brother, or son? Only two land transactions were found in the grantor/grantee indexes for Jackson County, Alabama involving the surname Gilliland for the years 1834-1890). By October 1835, Alexander was in Lincoln County, Tennessee. It was from there, on 11 October 1835, that he sold those 79.94 acres to Lemuel Gilliland. This was probably the same Lemuel who became guardian of two of James Gilliland's children circa 1823. I have listed Lemuel as a son of Alexander's for the time being.11 Alexander Gilliland appeared on the 1840 Federal Census of Lincoln County, Tennessee, with a household listed as two males under 5, one male 5-9, one male 10-14, one male 15-19, one male 50-59, two females 5-9, one female 20-29, and one female 30-39.12

In the 1850 census for Lincoln County, Tennessee there was a Patsy Gilliland listed as Head of Household. She was born circa 1805 in North Carolina. Listed with her are six children, two born in Alabama and the other four in Tennessee. I think this was Alexander's second wife and his "second" family. The youngest was eight so Alexander must have died between 1842 and 1850.13
