James Gilleland1

M, #132, b. 1 August 1745, d. between September 1810 and 15 April 1811
Last Edited=5 Oct 2017
Botetourt County was established in 1770 from Augusta County. Greenbrier County was established in 1778 from Botetourt and Montgomery Counties. After the Civil War, West Virginia was formed and Greenbrier became part of West Virginia.
     James Gilleland was supposedly born on 1 August 1745 at Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, though I have found no source for this and I am beginning to doubt its validity.1 He supposedly married Susannah Young on 13 June 1768 at St. James Episcopal Church, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.2,3,1 However, the name recorded in the church register was John Gilland not James, and considering the fact that there's no source for his birth having taken place there, I can find no other connection back to Pennsylvania with James.3 [There were no other Gillilands/Gillelands in the St. James register. I did find the following: Marriage: John Gillard and Mary Grosh, 7 Jul 1778; Burials: Elizabeth Gillard, 2 Apr 1790; William Gillard, 18 Oct 1784; Baptisms: George Gilliard (b. 29 Aug 1785, bap. 16 Oct 1785); Susanna Gilliard (b. 17 Sep 1800, bap. 14 Dec 1800) both children of John and Margaret. Through a Lancaster County deed (Book Q, page 609) I discovered that John Gillard was married to Margaret Grosh so the marriage of John and Mary should really be John and Margaret. Margaret had sisters Elizabeth, Susanna, and Mary and the three were daughters of a John Grosh.]

According to Lyman Chalkley's Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement of Virginia, volume 2, page 420, "Lists of Delinquents in the Tax Levies", a James Gilliland and a John Gilliland were listed as runaways in 1767. A runaway referred to an indentured servant who left before his term of servitude was complete. Chalkley's Chronicles are extracted from the original court records of Augusta County, Virginia between 1745 and 1800. Could this be James and a brother or father? On page 494 of this same book we find the following: "Shepherd Gilliland, aged 59, son of Susannah Gilliland, deceased widow of James Gilliland, a soldier of the Revolution, makes declaration as follows: James and Susannah were married in Lancaster County, Penna., and moved to Rockingham County, Virginia; James was drafted in the Company of Capt. George Houston; again he performed a tour in McIntosh's campaign; refers to the affidavit of Jacob Lemon, a pensioner. Susannah died June 18th, 1842. James died in the fall of 1810; had 13 children. The following are still alive, viz: Jenny Lemon, wife of Jacob Lemon, of Botetourt; Nancy Lemon, wife of Conrad Lemon, of Alleghany; Susannah Shanklin, widow of John Shanklin, now living in Botetourt; declarant; Sarah Wood, wife of Edward Wood, of Bath; Elizabeth Carnes, wife of John Carnes, of Monroe County." According to sources, Shepherd was born in 1786. If he was 59 at the time of this declaration then it was probably taken in or around 1845 and none of his brothers were still alive.4

In 1782 we find James being taxed for 80 acres in Botetourt County, Virginia.5 On April 1, 1783, he purchased a 78 acre tract of land situated in Botetourt County on the east side of the James River joining the land of Robert Hill, for £100, from John Young and his wife Agnes.6,5

James was found on the 1785 tax list for Botetourt County, Virginia, Frazer's District, with a household of 11, two dwelling houses, and two other buildings.7 He name was entered on April 4, 1789 on the Botetourt County tax list for that year. On June 12, 1798, James purchased a tract of land situated on the north side of the James River, containing 28 acres, from William Davidson and his wife Martha.8 He acted as the "legal attorney" in a land transaction between Hugh Muldrough (son and heir-at-law of Andrew and Jane Muldrough) and Jane his wife, of Fayette County, Kentucky, and Jacob Lemon of Botetourt County, which was recorded on February 12, 1799.9 James appeared on the 1800 tax list for Botetourt County.10

James Gilleland appeared on the 1810 Federal Census of Botetourt County, Virginia, with a household listed as three white males 16-25, one white male 45 & over, one white female 10-15, one white female 16-25, and one white female 45 & over.11

James died between September 1810 and 15 April 1811 at Botetourt County, Virginia.12 His will was written March 1, 1810 and probated in April 1811. It lists his wife Susannah and children Sally, Shepherd, Joseph, James, Betsy, Mary, John, William, Samuel, Jenny, Nancy and Susannah. His plantation was left to sons Shepherd and Joseph.12,1

On March 31, 1937, Mary S. Venable of Covington, Virginia, wrote a report on the Gilliland Tavern for the WPA Project. According to her research, the tavern was constructed in 1765. In 1822, when Alleghany County was formed, the owner shown on the tax records was James Gilliland. Since James Gilleland, the father, was deceased by 1822 it is not known if this record was for James, Jr. In 1854, the Alleghany County tax records show that the heirs of James Gilliland were owners of the property and tavern. Around 1874, Shepherd Gilliland Sr. sold Shepherd Young Gilliland, his grandson, the property with the reservation of him having life estate. In 1937, the widow of Shepherd Y. Gilliland was owner. The "tavern" continued to stand until about 1947 when it was either torn down or destroyed by fire.

Ms. Venable described the seven-room inn as having three large and four small rooms with nine-foot ceilings. There was a cabin outside for the kitchen. The structure contained handmade weatherboarding and hew beams in a pioneer style. The two mantels in the tavern were described as being large and plain. There were two chimneys, one on the west side and one between two rooms. The large porch across the front was the hallway upstairs with each door to the rooms opening onto the porch. Ms. Venable described the stairway as "winds, on the left end of front porch, facing the inn, is partially closed at top." There were 21 windows with batten type shutters. It was also noted in the 1937 write-up that the building was used as a camp in the summer.

Attached is a copy of the report done by Mary S. Venable. It must be noted that not all of her research was correct.

Susannah Young1

F, #133, b. between 1741 and 1750, d. 18 June 1842
Last Edited=5 Oct 2017
     Susannah Young was born between 1741 and 1750.2 According to some family trees found online Susannah was the daughter of John Young and Agnes Elizabeth Davis, and John was supposedly the son of Robert Young and Agnes Crockett. Robert and Agnes came, along with their three sons, from County Antrim, Ireland, circa 1740, to Philadelphia then down to Augusta County, Virginia. There appears to be quite a bit of information available on this Robert Young (not to be confused with the Robert Young who was the father of Elizabeth Young) in the Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia by Lyman Chalkley as well as in court records of Virginia. From what I've been reading, this family remained in the Augusta County, Virginia area. If Susannah is indeed the daughter of John Young it is not understood why she would have been in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1768 where she supposedly married James, unless the marriage found at St. James Episcopal Church is not for her.

Susannah Young supposedly married James Gilleland on 13 June 1768 at St. James Episcopal Church, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.3,4,1 Susannah Young was probably the female over age 45 listed in the household of her husband, James Gilleland, in the 1810 Federal Census of Botetourt County, Virginia.5 Susannah Young was probably the female age (an unknown value) listed in the household of Joseph Gilleland, in the 1830 Federal Census of Botetourt County, Virginia.6 It appears that she was living with her son Shephard in 1840 as there is a female listed on the census for Shephard's household in the age range of 90-99 years old.2 Susannah Young was probably the female age 90-99 listed in the household of Shepherd Gilleland, in the 1840 Federal Census of Bath County, Virginia.2 Susannah Young died on 18 June 1842 at Virginia.7

     Hugh Gilliland was the son of ? Gilliland. The earliest record I have found, to date, for Hugh is when he served on a jury in Lancaster County on November 3, 1730.2

On May 10, 1734 pursuant to a warrant dated May 1st, Hugh had a tract of land of 444 acres situated on a branch of Pequea Creek in Salisbury township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, surveyed for him.3 Hugh never took a patent on the land. Instead, the land was patented and the title granted to Robert Patton on June 3, 1742.4 Hugh Gilliland married Ann Berryhill.1

On August 3, 1736, Hugh was mentioned in the Quarter Sessions Dockets of Lancaster County for having a road laid out through his land.5

On February 16, 1744, 200 acres of land were surveyed to Hugh in Hanover township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.6 This land would be later sold, in 1771, by Hugh's son Hugh Gilliland.7

Hugh made out his will on March 11, 1750. It mentioned wife Ann Gilliland and children Mary, Eleanor, Ann, Elizabeth, Agness, Robert and Hugh. The executors were Ann and his brother John Gilliland.8,1 His will also stipulated that his land was to be left to his sons Robert, the eldest, and Hugh, to be equally divided between them.7 Hugh Gilliland died between November 1751 and 3 December 1751 at Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.8,9 His will was probated on December 3, 1751. Also on that date, a petition was made in Orphan's Court for guardians for his children. Robert, Mary & Elenor (all above the age of 14) chose William McCullough as guardian. Ann, Elizabeth, Agnes, & Hugh (ages not given) were court appointed their mother Ann and Adam Reed as guardians.10

On June 5, 1753 a petition was made in Orphan's Court where Robert Gilleyland chose his uncle John Gilleyland as guardian.11

On March 5, 1754, children Ann, Elizabeth (both above the age of 14), Agnes, and Hugh (ages not given) chose John McCullough, their step-father, as guardian.12
     In 1959 a descendant of this family wrote a series of articles for the Linesville Hearld, Crawford County, Pennsylvania. I have found six of the articles which I have transcribed are are attached. Corrections or comments are found in brackets [ ].

Also attached is a scanned in version of one of the articles. The other ones were too faded.
