James Gilliland married Susan Keeling in 1854.3 James Gilliland and Susan Keeling appeared on the 1870 Federal Census of Bowen township, Madison County, Arkansas, enumerated 15 August 1870. Their children D. Benson, John, Thomas and Margaret Catherine were listed as living with them.3 James Gilliland and Susan Keeling appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of War Eagle township, Madison County, Arkansas, enumerated 5 June 1880. Their daughter Margaret Catherine was listed as living with them.4

The following biographical sketch of James appeared in the book History of Benton, Washington, Carroll, Madison, Crawford, Franklin, and Sebastian Counties, Arkansas:

"James Gilliland, senior member of the firm of GILLILAND & STOTTS, dealers in hardware and agricultural implements, was born in Haywood County, Tenn., in 1831, on March 5, and is a son of J. B. and Jane (McFERREN) Gilliland.

The father was born in Virginia in 1791, moved to Alabama when a boy, and was married in Tennessee, where his eight children were born. In 1837 he located in Arkansas, five miles south of Huntsville, sold his place about 1850, and moved on King’s River, where he farmed until his death in 1857. The mother was born in Virginia in 1792, and died in Texas in 1867. All of the children, save one sister, are living.

James passed his youth upon the farm, remaining with parents until twenty-three years of age, when he married and engaged in farming. In 1857 he moved to Texas, and there served in the Confederate army four years. He left Texas in 1867 and settled in War Eagle, where he served as sheriff for two years after 1874. He then became interested in the insurance business, but for the past nine years has been successfully engaged in the mercantile business at Huntsville.

In 1854 he married Susan KEELING, of this county, by whom he has had five children: David B., John T., Samuel, Margaret C. and Mary Jane (deceased). Both himself and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Mr. Gilliland is a Democrat and a Mason."2

     James Gilliland was born between 1791 and 1800.1 He was the son of John Gilliland and Sarah Berry. (Some people say that James's first wife was Margaret McFerrin but show no date of marriage or source.) James was witness to a land transaction between Wm. McFerrin and Charles Demet recorded on July 29, 1819. The land was located on a fork of Cripple Creek in Rutherford County, Tennessee.2 James Gilliland appeared on the 1820 Federal Census of Rutherford County, Tennessee, with a household listed as one male under 10, one male 10-15, one male 26-44, two females under 10, and one female 16-25, with two persons engaged in agriculture.3 On November 15, 1820, James Gilliland and Burton L. Smith, both of Jackson County, Alabama, sold 30 acres of land situated on Brawley's Fork of the East Fork of Stones River in Rutherford County, Tennessee to John Barnes for $225. (Today, Brawley's Creek is in Cannon County, Tennessee.) This land appears to be about 2 miles east of Cripple Creek.4 It is not known why James was listed as being from Jackson County, Alabama, although Joseph Sagely, brother-in-law to James, who appeared just a few households away from him on the 1820 census, would wind up living in Jackson County by 1830.5

James Gilliland appeared on the 1830 Federal Census of Haywood County, Tennessee, with a household listed as one male under 5, two males 5-9, one male 20-29, one male 30-39, one female under 5, one female 5-9, two females 10-14, and one female 50-59 (probably his mother.)1 He married Anna Farris in 1831.6,7 James Gilliland died before 19 June 1835 at Haywood County, Tennessee.7 His brother Samuel was appointed guardian of his three sons.8
