F, #1, b. circa 1801
Last Edited=4 Jul 2018
     Mary Ann (Polly) Gilliland was born circa 1801 at Pendleton District, South Carolina.1,2 She was the daughter of John Gilliland and Charity Richardson.2 In some records I found her last name spelled Gilleand. Mary Ann (Polly) Gilliland was probably the female age 16 to 25 listed in the household of her father, John Gilliland, in the 1820 Federal Census of Petersburg, Simpson County, Kentucky.3 Mary Ann (Polly) Gilliland married John Davis Jamison on 12 November 1825 at Union township, Lincoln County, Missouri.4 Mary Ann (Polly) Gilliland appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of District No. 24, Grant County, Wisconsin, enumerated 23 September 1850.5 She appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Beetown, Grant County, Wisconsin, enumerated 28 July 1860, reporting the family owned real estate valued at $400 and personal property valued at $100.6 According to 'The Jamison History' by Sarah Melvina Devaney, John first went to Wisconsin, then to Montana and later to Vancouver, B.C. I did not find John or Mary Ann in the 1870 census for Grant County, WI. I do not know if they actually did move to Montana or if they are dead by then.7

John Gilliland1

M, #2, b. circa 1765, d. July 1849

For a more in-depth listing of John & Charity's descendants see Gilliland Descendants.
     John Gilliland was born circa 1765 at South Carolina.2 He married Charity Richardson, daughter of Mathias Richardson Sr. and Frances Clark (or Massey). John Gilliland appeared on the 1790 Federal Census of the Ninety-Six District, Pendleton County, South Carolina, enumerated 17 May 1791, with a household listed as one free white male 16 and over, and three free white females.3 The John Gilliland (as John Gillilin) on the census was listed on the page after Mathias Richardson (Charity's father), William Lowe, and Robert Samuel Brashears, and one household down from Elias Roberts, the son-in-law of Robert Samuel Brashears.3

(A land grant surveyed for William Fariss on January 1, 1791 shows a parcel of land for a John Gilliland bordering Fariss's land situated near Brushy Creek and the long branch of Big Creek in the Ninety-Sixth District of Pendleton County. This land, just west of the Saluda River, is not far from the land on Golden Grove Creek in Greenville District that Mathias Richardson purchased in 1804, land next to a tract that was surveyed to Robert Gilliland in 1784. In 1794, Robert Samuel Brashears and his son-in-law, Robert Gilliland, of Hawkins County, Tennessee purchased land in Knox County, Tennessee which would become Roane County when that county was formed in 1801.4,5 On November 29, 1795, Robert Gilliland bought 300 acres of land on Town Creek in Knox County. One of the witnesses on the deed was a John Gilliland.6 Robert Gilliland died before July 1796. The Knox County Court appointed his widow as administratrix of his estate with a John Gilliland and Elias Roberts (her brother-in-law) on her bond.)7

On November 10, 1792, a John Gilliland of Washington District, Pendleton County, South Carolina, purchased 200 acres of land on Brushy Creek (south side of Saluda River) from William Jewell.8 Then on July 18, 1808 he sold 120 acres of that land to John Clardy.9 I used to think that this John Gilliland was the John who married Charity Richardson. However, in the deed of sale in 1808, it states that the seller, John Gilliland, was from Pendleton District, South Carolina. The John Gilliland who married Charity Richardson was living in Kentucky by that time. I am beginning to think that the John Gilliland who bought and sold that land on Brushy Creek was this John Gilliland. And, if you look at the deed of sale, the witness was Mathias R. Richardson, Charity's father. I think there is a connection between the John Gilliland who lived to be over 100 years and the Richardson family.

Sometime between 1797 and 1799 John and Charity moved to Kentucky. They were first in Logan County where in 1799 a John Gilum was found in the tax books with 200 acres of land on Drakes Creek.10,11 It was land that was originally warranted to a Susanna Smith on September 7, 1798.12 On August 28, 1799 the land was surveyed. It was located next to land owned by William Lowe. On February 4, 1800, Susanna Smith signed over all her right, title and interest in the 200 acres to John. Then on July 13th, John signed over his right, title and interest to Mathias R. Gilliland.13

John continued to appear on the tax books for Logan County from 1800 through 1818. (In 1810, there was also an Alexander Gilliland. Could that be this Alexander?10 And, starting in 1811 through 1817, there was a Samuel Gilliland in the tax books. He was also in the Simpson County tax books starting in 1819 with the formation of that county, as well as in the 1820 census record. See below.)10

On November 20, 1807, after paying the sum of $17.90, Mathias Gilliland was granted a patent for the 200 acres of land that John was taxed on in 1799 and 1800.14 Then on February 5, 1819, Mathias and his wife Catherine sold this exact piece of land to a John Gilliland, planter, for $300. A William Gilliland was a witness. Was William John's brother? And who was this Susanna Smith who signed over her right, title and interest to John? Was she his sister?15 (Mathias and Catherine moved to Lincoln County, Missouri and were there by 1821 when Mathias was found on a tax list for Union Township. They may have sold this land back to John just before they left.)16

John appeared on the 1810 Federal Census of Logan County, Kentucky, with a household listed as three white males under 10, one white male 26-44, one white female 10-15, one white female 26-44, and one white female 45 & over.17

On February 13, 1815, John purchased a small parcel of land, about two or three acres including the house he was living in, from William Lowe for $10. The land was located on the east side of the Barren Fork of Drakes Creek in Logan County, Kentucky and bordered William Lowe's land.18

The first tax books for Simpson County start in 1819 when it was formed from parts of Allen, Logan, and Warren Counties. John was listed, with one male over 21 and four horses (no land), as was a Samuel Gilliland, who had 40 acres on Drakes Creek with one white male over 21 and one horse.19,20

John Gilliland appeared on the 1820 Federal Census of Petersburg, Simpson County, Kentucky, with a household listed as two males under 10, one male 10-15, one male 16-18, one male 45 & over, three females under 10, one female 10-15, one female 16-26, and one female 26-44.21 Also found in the 1820 Federal Census for Franklin, Simpson County, Kentucky was Samuel Gilliland with a household of three males under 10, two males 10-16, one male 26-45, one female under 10, and one female 26-45.22

In the tax books between the 1820 and 1830 census records we find the following: 1821 - John and William Gilliland. William is not included in the white males over 21 so he may be of the age where he was exempt from paying taxes.19 1822 and 1823 - just John was listed.19 1824 and 1825 - besides John there is now an Allen Gilliland.19 1826 through 1829 - we find only John listed.19

John Gilliland appeared on the 1830 Federal Census of Simpson County, Kentucky, with a household listed as one male 10-14, one male 15-19, one male 60-69, one female 15-19, and one female 50-59.23

In the tax books between the 1830 and 1840 census records (when there was a tax list) we find the following: 1830 - 1834 - only John is listed.19 1835 - we find John and son James.19 1836 - there was no tax book. 1837 - John and his sons James R. and Richardson are listed.19 1838 - John and his sons James R. and Richardson are listed.19 1839 - John and James R. are listed.19 1840 - John and his sons James R. and Richardson are listed.19

John and Charity appeared on the 1840 Federal Census of Simpson County, Kentucky. They were living in the household of their son James R. There was also a 10-14 year old white male living with them.24

In 1841 John transferred 196 acres of land that he owned on Drakes Creek in Simpson County into a joint holding of him, and sons James R. and Richardson.19 By 1843 the land was cited as being owned solely by James R.19

Some time between 1842 and 1844 John's son Richardson was murdered. The man thought to have commited the murder was Moses Mayes. John offered a $300 reward for his apprehension. Four men, James H. Davis, David Huffkins, Bryant Hulsey, and John F. Dunn claimed the reward for his capture. James Davis claimed he never received his share and filed a lawsuit against Huffkins, Dunn & Hulsey. Huffkins, Dunn & Hulsey claimed they never received the reward money and filed a counter lawsuit against Davis.25 On May 27, 1845, Moses Mayes was indicted for the murder of Richardson Gilliland.26,27 He was convicted of manslaughter in 1845 and sentenced to 10 years in prison but was pardoned 5 years later, after John had died.27

John died in July 1849 at Simpson County, Kentucky; at the home of his daughter Martha Ann Reeder.28,29
     There was a marriage in the Logan County, Kentucky Brides Index, 1790-1818, for a Jenny Gilliland who married David Settle on December 14, 1807 who may or may not be a daughter of John and Charity.30
     There was also, supposedly, a marriage between a Nancy "Fanny" Gilliland and Stephen Heffington in Logan County although I have not been able to find it. Some people say she was the daughter of Alexander Gilliland and Frances Baird though that is not correct as there was no Nancy/Fanny mentioned in Alexander's will. Could she have been a daughter of John and Charity? Maybe. But first more information needs to be found on whether she actually existed. To see what other people have speculated about here you can see her Find-a-Grave Page.

Mathias R. Gilliland1

M, #5, b. between 1791 and 1800
Last Edited=5 Nov 2017
     Mathias R. Gilliland was born between 1791 and 1800 at Kentucky.2 He was the son of John Gilliland and Charity Richardson.1 Mathias R. Gilliland married Catherine Hendricks on 17 January 1818 at Sumner County, Tennessee.3 On February 5, 1819, Mathias and Catherine sold 200 acres of land on the east side of the Barren Fork of Drakes Creek in Logan County, Kentucky to John Gilliland, planter, for $300. This was the land that his father signed over to him on July 13, 1800. Who was this John? Was it his father that he was selling the land back to? Or was it his brother John Richardson? Supposedly his brother John Richardson moved to Missouri around this time so I doubt that it was him. I could not find a deed where this land was later sold by John to anyone else.4

Mathias may have migrated to Missouri several years after his brother John Richardson. One of his sons, Peter H. appears to be buried there and another son, John R., married an Ives, many of which are buried in the same cemetery as Peter H.5 He was found on the 1821 tax list for Union Township, Lincoln County, Missouri.6 Mathias R. Gilliland appeared on the 1830 Federal Census of Lincoln County, Missouri, with a household listed as three males under 5, one male 5-10, one male 10-15, one male 20-30, one male 30-40, one female under 5, one female 5-10, and one female 30-40.2 He appeared on the 1840 Federal Census of Union township, Lincoln County, Missouri, with a household listed as one male 5-10, two males 10-15, one male 15-20, one male 20-30, one male 40-50, one female 10-15, and one female 40-50.7

James Richardson Gilliland1

M, #7, b. 1804, d. after 8 April 1882
Last Edited=17 Oct 2019
     James Richardson Gilliland was born in 1804 at Logan County, Kentucky.1,2 He was the son of John Gilliland and Charity Richardson.1 James Richardson Gilliland was probably the male age 16 to 18 listed in the household of his father, John Gilliland, in the 1820 Federal Census of Petersburg, Simpson County, Kentucky.3 James Richardson Gilliland appeared on the 1840 Federal Census of Simpson County, Kentucky.4 His parents, John Gilliland and Charity Richardson, were living with him as well as a male age 10-15.

James Richardson appeared in the tax lists for Simpson County, Kentucky in the years 1837-1847. After that he disappeared from the tax rolls. On April 9, 1846, James purchased 19+ acres of land from the estate of James Hunt in Allen County, Kentucky for $16.87.5 On July 5, 1847, James purchased a parcel of land along with a saw mill located on the middle fork of Drakes Creek in Allen County from Thomas Horn for $1000.6

James Richardson Gilliland appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Simpson County, Kentucky, enumerated 28 August 1850, living in the household of his sister and brother-in-law Mary Ann and Jonathan Reeder.7 On November 17, 1852, James, who was living in Allen County, purchased 100 acres of land in Allen County on Drakes Creek from Jeremiah & Jane Wilkins for $300.8 Then on December 10, 1852, he purchased 40 acres on the middle fork of Drakes Creek from William and Clarinda Jackson for $300. This time the deed stated he was from Simpson County, Kentucky.9 On February 19, 1856, James sold 180 acres on the middle fork of Drakes Creek in Allen County to Henry C. Hancock for $632.10 Then on September 19th, James purchased those 180 acres back from Henry C. Handcock for $875.11 On February 8, 1858, James released his interest and title in a tract of land on the waters of Sulphur fork of Drakes Creek to James P. Reeder, the executor of the estate of Jonathan M. Reeder, James Richardson's brother-in-law. The land was part of a tract of land that James Richardson and Jonathan Reeder jointly owned. On that same day James P. Reeder released his interest in a tract of land to James Richardson.12

There were other tracts of land that James purchased and sold over the years. However, none of the deeds of the sales mentioned a wife relinquishing her dower rights so he must not have been married.

James Richardson Gilliland appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Butlersville, Allen County, Kentucky, enumerated 7 June 1860.13 Also living with him was a Margaret Bayles and five young Bayleses between the ages of 5 and 21 who appear to be her children.13

James Richardson Gilliland appeared on the 1870 Federal Census of Allen County, Kentucky, enumerated 21 July 1870.14 Margaret Bayles and three of her children were still living with him. On this census she was listed as his housekeeper.14

James Richardson Gilliland appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Scottsville, Allen County, Kentucky, enumerated 1 June 1880.15 Also living with him was 27 year old Louisa F. Gilliland listed as his daughter. That would make her born circa 1853. In the 1860 census, where Margaret Bayles and her children are living with James, there was a female L. F. Bayles age 6 listed. So was she Margaret's daughter from her first marriage or Margaret and James' daughter? I'm leaning towards Margaret and James' daughter although she could have been the daughter of another man too. In the 1850 Federal Census for Allen County Margaret is listed by herself with her five children the youngest being America Bayles. Louisa was not born yet and I'm guessing that Margaret's husband was dead by then.16

James Richardson Gilliland most likely died after 8 April 1882, that being the date that a deed was recorded where he sold some land to L. F. Coleman. Unfortunately, there was a fire at the Allen County, Kentucky Court House on October 22, 1902 where all deed books were destroyed so seeing the actual deed is impossible. But the deed was originally recorded in Book U, pages 154-155.15

Mathias Richardson Sr.1

M, #10, b. 14 July 1749, d. 8 December 1828
Last Edited=9 May 2019
     Mathias Richardson Sr. was born on 14 July 1749 at Virginia or North Carolina.2,3 According to at least one family tree found online, two of Mathias' siblings were born in Brunswick County, Virginia. No sources were listed.

Mathias Richardson Sr. married Frances Clark (or Massey) circa 1770 in either Virginia or North Carolina.1 (A letter written by a 3rd great-granddaughter, Mrs. Wilma Massey Robinson, stated that Mathias' wife was either Frances Clark or Frances Massey, daughter of Silas Massey of Golden Grove Creek, South Carolina. She also stated that Mathias left for service in the Revolutionary War in the company of William Halbert of Henry County, Virginia.)

In 1784 he received a grant for 200 acres of land on Abbotts Creek in Surry County, North Carolina.4 On February 24, 1785 he and Frances sold that land to Abel Shields for £100.5

Mathias appeared on the 1790 Federal Census of the Ninety-Six District, Pendleton County, South Carolina, enumerated 17 May 1791, with a household listed as two white males under 16, one white male 16 and over, and five white females.6 In the census, Mathias is located in-between Jonathan Moore and Willam Fariss. Jacob Earnest is found 29 people down the list. These three men (Moore, Fariss, and Earnest), along with John Gilliland, are all found on the land grant surveyed in January 1791 for 447 acres on the long branch of Big Creek, near Brushy Creek in the District of Ninety-six in Pendleton County.6,7

On September 29, 1792, Mathias purchased 150 acres of land on the Saluda River in Washington District, Pendleton County, South Carolina, from William Hallum for £60 sterling. The deed was witnessed by John Gilliland at the time of the drafting and also at the time of recording which was on March 11, 1801.8

On October 15, 1792, Mathias purchased 630 acres of land situated on the Saluda River north of Hurricane Creek in Pendleton County, South Carolina from William Lowe, which was originally granted to William by the state of South Carolina by patent on June 5, 1786.9,10 John Gilliland was a witness and on December 21st John came before one of the justices for the county of Pendleton and swore he witnessed the signing of the deed. (I'm not sure if this was Mathias' son-in-law or this John Gilliland. There was a John Gilliland who sold 120 acres of land on Brushy Creek to John Clardy in 1808. Mathias' son-in-law John Gilliland was already in Kentucky by then. Mathias was a witness to that deed.)

On January 13, 1795, Mathias purchased 47 acres of land from Benjamin Clardy for 5 pounds sterling. The land was located on a branch of the Saluda River in the County of Pendleton, Washington District, South Carolina and was part of a tract of land originally patented to Benjamin by the state of South Carolina.11,12

Mathias appeared on the 1800 Federal Census of Pendleton District, South Carolina, with a household listed as one white male 10 to 15, one white male 16 to 25, one white male 45 and over, two white females under 10, two white females 10 to 15, one white female 45 and over.13

On November 27, 1804, Mathias purchased 100 acres of land on Golden Grove Creek in Greenville District from James Tarrant for the sum of $600. Golden Grove Creek flowed out of the Saluda River which divided Greenville District from Pendleton District where Mathias was living at the time.14 On January 1, 1807, Mathias sold the 100 acres of land on Golden Grove Creek to his son John for $600.15

Mathias appeared on the 1810 Federal Census of Pendleton District, South Carolina, with a household listed as one white male 45 and over, one white female 10 to 15, one white female 45 and over, and two slaves.16

Mathias made out his will on June 27, 1827. The following children were mentioned: John, Mathias Jr., Charity Gilliland, Catherine Stanton, Frances Clardy, Elizabeth Ward, Mourning Tarrant, and Anne Dossett. Other heirs listed were grandsons Aaron, Mathias, and David Garrison, all the sons of Martha Garrison, dec'd. Executors were sons John and Mathias Richardson, and William Stanton. Witnesses were John Wilson, Samuel Wilson, and Clark Wilson.17,18

Mathias Richardson Sr. died on 8 December 1828 at Anderson County, South Carolina, at age 79.2,1 He was probably buried in the Richardson Family Cemetery which was located at the current corner of Shiloh Road & Oliver Park, 3 miles southwest of Piedmont, Anderson County, SC (estimated GPS = Latitude N 34 41.29 x Longitude W 82 30.19). Jessie Daucus "J. D." Allison told of his great, great, great grandfather, Mathias Richardson, Jr., and wife, Mary Tindall, plus others being buried in an old family cemetery on Shiloh Road. The cemetery was destroyed long ago and a trailer park put on the property. The markers were piled up on the bank of Hurricane Creek next to the cemetery. Today, there are no signs left of the old cemetery or markers. Relatives erected a memorial marker for Mathias and Mary Tindall Richardson in the A257 Shiloh UMC Cemetery located on Shiloh Road.19

Mathias' will was probated on December 29, 1828.17

Richardson Gilliland

M, #13, b. circa 1811, d. circa 1843
Last Edited=30 Jan 2013
     Richardson Gilliland was born circa 1811. He was the son of John Gilliland and Charity Richardson. Richardson Gilliland was probably one of the 2 males under age 10 listed in the household of his father, John Gilliland, in the 1820 Federal Census of Petersburg, Simpson County, Kentucky.1 Richardson Gilliland was probably the male age 15 to 19 listed in the household of his father, John Gilliland, in the 1830 Federal Census of Simpson County, Kentucky.2 Richardson Gilliland was murdered circa 1843 at Simpson County, Kentucky.3 In 1844 Richardson's father John had offered a $300 reward for the apprehension of his murderer. There was a lawsuit filed by one James H. Davis against Huffines, Dunn & Hulsey, for his share of the $300 reward which John had paid on January 25, 1845 to Huffines, Dunn & Hulsey for the apprehension of a Moses Mayes. In the lawsuit, the defendants finally quit defending and paid James H. Davis his 1/4 share of the $300 reward. Moses Mayes was convicted of manslaughter on June 5, 1845 and sentenced to 10 years in prison but was pardoned 5 years later (after John had died).3
