Alexander Gilliland

M, #16111
Last Edited=6 Nov 2017
     Pursuant to a warrant from John Thomas, commissioner of locations, Alexander had a tract of 251 acres of land laid out for him on the north side of the Saluda River, situated in the Ninety-Six District, South Carolina and bounded on the northeast by land laid out to David Gentry, on the southeast by land laid out to Robert Gilliland Sr. and Joseph Reid, on the southwest and northwest by land laid out to George Reid and Jesse Duncan, and on the other side by the Saluda River, surveyed on July 14, 1785, recorded on July 16th and granted on July 3, 1786.1

On June 20, 1793, Robert Gilliland Sr., Robert Gilliland Jr., & William Gilliland, Greenville District, South Carolina, entered a Title Bond for 500 pounds (in dollars at 4 shillings and 8 pence to the dollar) written December 28, 1792, to execute good and sufficient title in fee simple for the 251 acres of land originally granted to Alexander on July 3, 1786, on north side of Saluda River in Greenville County, to Samuel Johnston on or before January 25, 1801.2

On December 19, 1801, Alexander Gilliland, "being of full age", of Warren County, Kentucky (probably not this Alexander) sold the 251 acres of land on the Saluda River to Nathan Waddle for 100£.3

These are the only records I have found for this Alexander Gilliland and I'm not sure yet how he is related to the other Gillilands in Greenville District, South Carolina.

     Robert Samuel Brashears was born on 20 August 1731 at Prince George's County, Maryland.1 He married Phoebe Nicks.2 On November 29, 1792, Robert and his wife Phoebe sold 402 acres of land in the District of Washington, Pendleton County, South Carolina, on the south side of the Saluda River to Edward Maxwell for 100 pounds sterling.3 On August 8, 1794, Robert of Hawkins County, Tennessee, purchased 640 acres of land in Knox County, located on the north side of the Clinch River, from William Reed and Abraham Swagerty for 400£ Virginia money. This land would later fall into Roane County when that county was formed in 1801.4 On the same day his son-in-law Robert Gilliland purchased 640 acres on the north side of Clinch River, most likely next to Robert's land, from William Reed and Abraham Swagerty for 400£.5

Robert Samuel Brashears died on 15 January 1816 at Harriman, Roane County, Tennessee, at age 84.1 He was buried at Brashears-Kries Cemetery, Sugar Grove, Roane County, Tennessee.1 (For burial information see Find-a-Grave.)

Thomas Gilliland

M, #16116, b. circa 1780
Last Edited=9 Nov 2017
     Thomas Gilliland was probably born circa 1780 if he was indeed the nephew of William Gilliland Sr.1 On November 4, 1830, Thomas of Fayette County, Georgia purchased 101¼ acres of land, being ½ of lot #234 in the 13th District of formerly Henry, now Fayette County, from Stephen W. Hood of Wilkes County, for $416. The deed was signed in the presence of William Gilliland Sr. and recorded on October 26, 1831.2

On November 7, 1840, Thomas purchased lot #215 (or it could be #250) except for two acres in the east corner where a schoolhouse stands, the balance being 200 acres, in the 13th District of Fayette County, from G. L. Roberts of Morgan County, for $600.3

On March 10, 1841, Thomas sold lot #250 (except for two acres where a schoolhouse stands in the east corner of said lot the balance being 200 acres) in the 13th District (of formerly Henry County) to Clark McLeer & Co. of Richmond County for $1000.4

On July 29, 1841, Thomas purchased 100¼ acres, being the west ½ of lot #186, situated in the 13th District of Fayette County, from Caswel Kite for $300.5

On December 17, 1845, Thomas purchased lot #198 (202½ acres except for 50 acres in the southeast corner) in the 13th District (originally Henry now Fayette County, Georgia) from Rhoda Gilliland Harris for $200.6

On December 22, 1845, Thomas sold those 100¼ acres, being part of lot #186, that he bought from Caswell Kite in 1841 to Samuel Pate for $225.7

On August 3, 1846, Thomas sold 50 acres on the northeast corner of lot #198, in the 13th District of Fayetty County to Major Kite for $55.8

On September 7, 1846, Thomas sold 102½ acres, the west side of lot #198, to Mary and Nancy Hughes, the daughters of Rhoda Gilliland Hughes, for $127.9 This was the last deed I found for Thomas. And I could not find him in the 1850 census for Fayette County.

I believe that Thomas may be the nephew of William Gilliland Sr. In William's Revolutionary War Pension papers there's a letter from a Thomas Gilliland of Fayette County, that states that William was his uncle.1 In the information we have on William's father, Thomas Gilliland, we know he was referred to as Thomas Gilliland Sr. in some records indicating that there may have been a Thomas Gilliland, Jr. Maybe this Thomas, listed here, was the son of Thomas Gilliland Jr.

William Lowe

M, #16139, b. between 1751 and 1760
Last Edited=11 Feb 2018
     William Lowe married Margaret Farr. William Lowe was born between 1751 and 1760.1

On July 7, 1792, William sold 123 acres of land on the Saluda River being part of a tract of land were he was living to Keziah Wilson for 7 pounds sterling. Signed, sealed, and delivered in the presence of John Wilson and Francis Nunn.2

On October 15, 1792, William sold 630 acres of land situated on the Saluda River north of Hurricane Creek in Pendleton County, South Carolina, which was originally granted to William by the state of South Carolina by patent on June 5, 1786, to Mathias Richardson Sr. 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.3

The two pieces of land that William sold in 1792 did not mention his wife Margaret. Was William not married to Margaret then or did the state of South Carolina not require a wife to sign off on her dower rights until after 1792?

On April 23, 1796, William and Margaret sold four pieces of land in Pendleton County, South Carolina. The first was to Francis Nunn for 40 pounds sterling. It consisted of 26 acres, being part of a tract of land William was living on, lying on both sides of Hurricane Creek. The deed was signed in the presence of George Oldham and William Stanton. The second was to George Oldham for 107 pounds sterling. It was for 261 acres of land on the south side of the Saluda River. This deed was witnessed by Francis Nunn and Hezekiah Rice.4 The third piece of land was sold to Hezekiah Rice for 85 pounds sterling. It consisted of 185 acres located on the south side of the Saluda River. Witnesses were George Oldham and Francis Nunn.5 And the fourth piece of land was to William Stanton for 50 pounds sterling being 88 acres on the south side of the Saluda River joining land of Mathias Richardson Sr. The witnesses in this deed were George Oldham and Francis Nunn. All four deeds were signed by William as well as his wife Margaret.6

Sometime prior to 1801, William moved to Warren County, Kentucky where he appeared on the tax lists for that county from 1801 through 1812 (except 1810 when there were no records.)7 His land was located on Drakes Creek.7

William Lowe appeared on the 1810 Federal Census of Warren County, Kentucky, with a household listed as one male 45 & over, one female under 10, two females 10-15, and one female 45 & over.8 On the same page was listed his son Barney Lowe and also Thomas and David Heffington. (In 1811, William and Margaret sell land to David Heffington and on September 1, 1806, a Fanny Gilleland was married to Stephen Heffington in Logan County, Kentucky. I do not know who Fanny's parents were.) Also, there was also another William Lowe in Warren County in 1810. He's listed next to David and two Isaac Lowes. In the tax records there was a William Lowe who had land on Sinking Creek. I believe this is the other William Lowe.

On February 15, 1811, William and his wife Margaret sold 100 acres of land in Warren County to David Heffington for $200.9 Also on February 15th, they sold 100 acres of land in Warren County to Jeremiah Chapman for $400.10

On June 11, 1811, William and Margaret sold 100 acres of land in Warren County to John Derreberry for $200.11 And on June 29, 1811, William and Margaret sold 100 acres of land in Warren County to James McConnel for $200, which was part of a survey of land in the name of William B. Lowe, assignee of James Butler.12 He appeared on the 1820 Federal Census of Simpson County, Kentucky, with a household listed as one male 10-15, one male 45 & over, and one female 45 & over with one person engaged in agriculture.13 He appeared on the 1830 Federal Census of Simpson County, Kentucky, with a household listed as one male 70-79 and one female 60-69.1
