John Gilliland1

M, #215, d. before 9 October 1789
Last Edited=2 Aug 2012
     John Gilliland married Jane ?1 They settled in Menallen township, York County (now in Adams County), Pennsylvania, where he operated a mill on Opossom Creek which was known as Gilliland's Mill and later as Fisher's Mill.2

The earliest reference to John in Menallen township, to date, is in April 1760, when he appeared as a juror in the Clerk of Court Quarter Session Dockets.3

John appeared in the list of assessed inhabitants of York County (now in Adams County), Pennsylvania for Menallen township for the year 1762.4 Also appearing in Menallen township for 1762 was a James Gililand. (This might be the James who married Hannah Laird.)5

John appeared on the 1779 list of taxables for Menallen township, showing he owned 200 acres of land and had two horses and five cattle. His tax for that year was 55 .4 .2. Also appearing were sons Samuel, with one horse and a tax of 15 .0 .0, and William, with one horse, two cattle and a tax of 2 .8 .4.6 John was also listed as a taxable in the years 1780, 1781, 1782, and 1783, always showing ownership of 200 acres of land. In the 1783 tax list there was a new heading "Inhabitants" and John's family had three.7

On November 5, 1784, John made out his will. He provided for his wife, Jane; left £100 to son James, £50 pounds to be paid to him in 1790 and the remainder to be paid the next year, with the understanding that the money he had already received be the rest of his inheritance; left his son Samuel all his plantation and tract of land where John was then living, also 1/2 of son William's place (where William was living) according to a contract made between Samuel & William. He also left Samuel his whole personal estate except what had been willed to others. He left William a tract of land in Westmoreland County and £5. He appointed sons Samuel & William as executors.8,9 John Gilliland died before 9 October 1789 at Menallen township, York County (now in Adams County), Pennsylvania; as that was when his will was proved.10,8

According to the book Early Families of Frederick County, Maryland and Adams County, Pennsylvania John and Jane were the parents of four sons. Three can be documented as they are named in John's will. The other one is supposedly John who married Hannah Michaels. I have entered him into the database but have not linked him back to John and Jane until I find another source to confirm this.11

     Samuel Alexander Gilliland was born on 4 June 1834 at Straban township, Adams County, Pennsylvania.1 He was the son of Fleming Gilliland and Sarah Gilliland.1 Samuel Alexander Gilliland married Margaret G. McKnight in 1865.1

The following biography was taken from the book History of Cumberland and Adams Counties, Pennsylvania.

S. A. GILLILAND, farmer and stock grower, P. O. Gettysburg, was born on the farm where he now resides, June 4, 1834, a son of Flemming and Sarah Gilliland, natives of Straban Township, this county. His paternal and maternal ancestors were among the early Scotch-Irish settlers of Adams County, and many of them participated in the Revolution and also in the war of 1812. Our subject’s father, who was a farmer by occupation, was a soldier in the latter struggle. His family consisted of four children, three of whom are still living: J. J. F., a druggist in Texas; S. A; and Sarah E., who resides om Gettysburg. S. A. grew to manhood in Straban Township on the farm where he now resides, and was educated at the country school. As an agriculturist he has met with great success and his farm consists of 225 acres of land. In 1865 he married Margaret G., daughter of James McKnight, of Allegheny County, Penn., and their union was blessed with five children, three now living; W. Fleming, Sarah E. and John H. Mrs. Gilliland died May 20, 1885, a member of the Presbyterian Church. Politically Mr. Gilliland is a Democrat. His grandfather was a judge and held the first court in Adams County; also was in the State Senate a number of terms.1 Samuel Alexander Gilliland died on 26 February 1913 at Gettysburg, Adams County, Pennsylvania, at age 78.2 He was buried on 28 February 1913 at Evergreen Cemetery, Gettysburg, Adams County, Pennsylvania.2
