Their children William T., Mary Susannah, Emma J., James Monroe and Nancy Ellen were listed as living with them.4 John Thomas Gilleland died on 30 January 1920 at Miller County, Missouri, at age 87.3 He was buried at Olean Cemetery, Olean, Miller County, Missouri.5 (For burial information see Find-a-Grave.)

The following obituary appeared in an unknown newspaper on February 4, 1920:

John Thompson Gilleland was born April 17, 1832 and departed this life January 30, 1920 being at the time of his death past 87 years of age. He was born and raised on the farm now owned by Henry Strother near Olean. He entered the land, now owned by Sam Russell and Monroe Gilliland, and built a home there and farmed until 1994 when he sold it to John W. Miller. He had formerly sold the Monroe Gilleland part to his son William. He then moved to Olean and made his home there until after the death of his beloved wife in Sept, 1918.

Mr. Gilleland was married Sept. 17, 1857 to Nancy Perlina Atkinson. To them six children were born, William T. Gilleland, of Oklahoma who departed this life in 1903, Mrs. J.W. Miller ofSummerville, Mo., Mrs. W.V. Spalding and Monroe Gilleland of Olean, Mrs. A.C. Stayton, of Barnett and Dr. J.L. Gilleland, of Pullman, Washington. There were 29 grandchildren and 18 greatgrandchildren.

Mr. Gilleland has made his home with his daughter, Mrs.A.C. Stayton since the death of Mrs. Gilleland.

Mr. and Mrs. Gilleland were always faithful church workers and always attended church services when their health would permit them. They gave themselves to Christ early in life and of them it can be truly said, “They have fought a good fight, they finished their work, they kept the faith.” Their good example will be remembered by all who knew them because they were always ready to give the helping hand and a kind word of encouragement to everyone, ever ready to help the sick and afflicted inevery way they could; always devoted, kind and helpful to their children, neighbors and friends.

Mr. Gilleland ws confined to his bed since a year ago Christmas and part of the time suffered from ailments of old age. He was patient and did not complain. The end came peacefully as he passed quietly away willing and ready to go at the Master’s call and perfectly conscious until the last. May we all be as well prepared to meet the final call as these dear people were is my prayer.

Owing to so much sickness and flu, the relatives decided to have the funeral sermon preached later and announcement will be made. “Nearer My God to Thee” was sung softly as the body was tenderly lowered to its last resting place by the side of his dear wife he loved so devotedly and a prayer was offered by his nephew.3

Samuel Stuart1

M, #3050, d. circa 1824
Last Edited=27 Apr 2019
     Samuel Stuart married Jane Dickey. Samuel appeared on the 1755 tax list for Orange County, North Carolina.2 On August 7, 1787, Samuel (I'm assuming it's Samuel Sr. and not Samuel Jr.) was granted a tract of land of 100 acres in Chatham County, North Carolina on Varnell Creek (Varnell Creek is located near present day Siler City.)3 Samuel Stuart appeared on the 1810 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina, with a household listed as two males under 10, two males 10-15, one male 16-25, one male 26-44, one male 45 & over, two females under 10, one female 10-15, and one female 26-44.4 He died circa 1824 at Anderson County, South Carolina.5 (For burial information see Find-a-Grave.)

Most of the historical information about Samuel came from the attached paper (unknown author). It appears that the author obtained their information primarily from two sources: a history written in 1859 by Samuel's grandson, Edward "Ned" Stuart, and a publication entitled "Stewart Clan Magazine" which was published by George Edson from 1922-1970.

Joseph Gilliland

M, #3051, b. circa 1756, d. before 10 March 1823
Last Edited=29 Apr 2019
     Joseph Gilliland was born circa 1756.1,2 He married Lettice/Letty ?3 Joseph was found on the Revolutionary War Muster Rolls of Capt. Jeduthan Harper's Militia Company, Chatham County Regiment, September 1772, as was a John Gilland.2 On July 30, 1779, Joseph applied for a land grant of 150 acres on the waters of Terrell's Creek in Chatham County, North Carolina.4 The land was surveyed in November of 1779.5 And the grant was issued on October 23, 1782.6

(A court document was found, dated May 11, 1774, pertaining to a debt that a John Gilleyland owed to John Pile in Chatham County.7 On May 10, 1779, a John Gilliland applied for a grant of 200 acres on the north side of Chestnut Hill. The land was surveyed on May 22, 1779.5 His grant was issued on March 31, 1780.8 Then on October 29, 1787, John sold that land to William Needom for 60£.9 And, as mentioned before, a John Gilland was in the same Revolutionary War regiment as Joseph. Were Joseph and John brothers? Were they possibly the sons of John Gilliland? And what became of this John Gilliland?)

On November 3, 1788, Joseph sold his 150 acres of land on Terrell's Creek, that he received as a land grant, to Thomas Lindly for £55.10

Joseph Gilliland appeared on the 1790 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina, enumerated 1790, with a household listed as one male 16 and over, two males under 16, and three females.11 On August 20, 1791, Joseph purchased 200 acres of land on Little Brush Creek in Chatham County from John Bray for £120.12 On August 28, 1792 Joseph was witness to a land transaction between Andrew Jones and Samuel Stewart/Stuart in Chatham County, North Carolina. Samuel was the father of James Stuart who married Mary Gilliland, daughter of John Gilliland (mentioned above.)13

Joseph Gilliland appeared on the 1800 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina, with a household listed as one male under 10, two males 16-25, one male 26-44, two females under 10, and one female 26-44.1 On February 13, 1802, Joseph purchased 214 acres on Little Brush Creek in Chatham County from Henry Bray for £110.14

Joseph Gilliland appeared on the 1810 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina, with a household listed as one male 10-15, one male 16-25, one male 45 and over, two females under 10, one female 16-25, and one female 45 and over.15 On November 14, 1814, Joseph purchased 97 acreas of land on the waters of Deep River in Chatham County, North Carolina from Samuel Guthrie for $100.00.16

Joseph was listed on the 1815 tax list for Capt. Lane's District in Chatham County. He had 414 acres of land located on Little Brush Creek adjoining land of Abraham Lane, valued at $1000 and 97 acres of land on Flat Creek valued at $23.00. He was exempt from the tax probably due to his age.17

I could not positively identify Joseph or either of his two sons, Josiah or James, on the 1820 Federal Census for Chatham County even though it appeared that they never left the county.

Joseph Gilliland died before 10 March 1823 at Chatham County, North Carolina.3 His son James was made administrator of his estate.3
     A descendant of this Joseph Gilliland has a 34/37 DNA match with a descendant of the John Gilliland who married Charity Richardson.

This land was the undivided shares of a survey of land to the heirs of Alexander Gilliland. Alexander was awarded this land for his service to North Carolina during the Revolutionary War. But who was Alexander?8 Note: According to a notice in The Tennessean in 1836, this land, located in Fayette County, had not had taxed paid on it for the years 1835 and 1836 and was subject to a double tax. It was listed in the newspaper as still under Alexander's name.9 On November 20, 1829, James sold his 150 acres on Flat Creek, that he bought from John and Elizabeth Guthrie, to David Brewer for $26.10

James O.

     Josiah Gilliland was born circa 1786 at North Carolina.2 He was the son of Joseph Gilliland and Lettice/Letty ?1 Josiah Gilliland was probably one of the two males under age 16 listed in the household of his father, Joseph Gilliland, in the 1790 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina.3 Josiah Gilliland was probably one of the two males age 16 to 25 listed in the household of his father, Joseph Gilliland, in the 1800 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina.4 Josiah Gilliland was probably the male age 16 to 25 listed in the household of his father, Joseph Gilliland, in the 1810 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina.5 Josiah was listed on the 1815 tax list for Capt. Lane's District in Chatham County. He was only listed as a "white poll" - no land - so he was probably still living with his parents.6

Josiah Gilliland married Sarah Bray, daughter of Mathias Bray and Isabel Edwards.2 On August 3, 1827, Josiah gave his brother James a quit claim deed on his 200 acres of land on Little Brush Creek in Chatham County, North Carolina that he received through his father's estate.7

Josiah Gilliland appeared on the 1830 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina, with a household listed as one male 5-9, two males 10-14, one male 15-19, one male 40-49, two females under 5, two females 5-9, one female 10-14, one female 15-19, and one female 40-49.8 On July 15, 1837, Josiah mortgaged his 214 acres of land, on the waters of Little Brush Creek, to Abraham Lane.9

Josiah Gilliland appeared on the 1840 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina, with a household listed as two males 20-29, one male 50-59, two females 10-14, three females 15-19, and one female 50-59.10 On November 20, 1847, Josiah sold his 214 acres of land on Little Brush Creek to his brother James for $135.00.11

Josiah Gilliland and Sarah Bray appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina, enumerated 26 November 1850. Their children Isabella and Cary "Cara" were listed as living with them.12

Josiah Gilliland died on 25 August 1851 at Chatham County, North Carolina.13 He was buried at Bray Cemetery, Chatham County, North Carolina.13

In the 1830 census it shows that Josiah had four sons, or at least four young males living in his household. In 1840 there were two. Unfortunately, when Josiah died he left no will to name his heirs and so other than the four daughters that were living with him and Sarah in 1850 we have no clear idea yet who his other children were. See Note below for links to possible sons.
     Possible sons:

1) Find-a-Grave has a listing for a William Gilliland, born 16 Aug 1813, Chatham County, died 23 Dec 1886, Randolph County, North Carolina who married Martha Craven. Both are buried in Brush Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Bear Creek, Chatham County.

2) Joseph Gilliland

3) John Gilliland.

Sarah Bray1

F, #3057, b. circa 1785

     Sarah Bray was born circa 1785.1 She was the daughter of Mathias Bray and Isabel Edwards. Sarah Bray married Josiah Gilliland, son of Joseph Gilliland and Lettice/Letty ?.1 Sarah Bray was probably the female age 40 to 49 listed in the household of her husband, Josiah Gilliland, in the 1830 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina.2 Sarah Bray was probably the female age 50 to 59 listed in the household of her husband, Josiah Gilliland, in the 1840 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina.3 Sarah Bray and Josiah Gilliland appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina, enumerated 26 November 1850. Their children Isabella and Cary "Cara" were listed as living with them.4 Sarah Bray appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Chatham County, North Carolina, enumerated 4 June 1860.5 Also living with her was her daughter Isabella and Isabella's 7 year old daughter Elizabeth Gilliland.

In August of 1845, some of the heirs of Mathias and Isabel Bray, including Josiah "Gilliner" and his wife Sarah, petitioned the court to sell a slave by the name of Kendrick (who was left to Isabel Bray by her husband and then to her heirs after her death in May of 1845), since the slave could not be divided among the surviving heirs. I believe that this was actually Josiah Gilliland and not a Josiah Gilliner.6
