Anne Elizabeth Leopard Richard1

F, #2763, b. circa 1840
Last Edited=3 Oct 2017
     Anne Elizabeth Leopard Richard was born circa 1840 at Louisiana.2 She married Thomas Gilleland, son of Samuel Gilleland and Martha ?, on 28 March 1867 at Greene County, Illinois.1,3 Anne Elizabeth Leopard Richard appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Greene County, Illinois, enumerated 4 June 1880. Her son Thomas was listed as living with her.2 Also living with Anne was Rebecca, her daughter from her first marriage, and Cornelius (Neal), one of Thomas' sons from his marriage to Nancy Ann Barrett.2,1

The follwing information was taken from the website Granny Anne & Descendants

The following was written by Annie's grandaughter, Anna Bell Bridgewater Herring to her own daughter Lucille Davidson (the date on the letter shows it to be 1980).

"Anne married Jean Richards at the age of 16. They arrived in Louisiana near Baton Rouge being six weeks on the water. (however, Ann is the only one listed as coming over in 1854 with 2 other Richard women and Jean not with her). However, did find a record of a Jean Richard arriving in USA in 1853. After Jean died or left, Ann came up the river on a boat to Illinois. She married Tom Gilleland. A son and a daughter were born, Martha and Tom. Cornelius (Neal) was not Granny Ann's son, but she raised him. His mother was Nancy Ann Barrett Gilleland. Widower Thomas Gilleland went to St. Louis to choose a future wife and chose Anne. St. Louis was a place for widows to meet responsible men for future husbands. Anne and Thomas lived on the Gilleland farm in Woodville, IL After Tom died, she married George McCormack. Granny Anne as most people called her was a registered mid wife, she delivered many babies all around the neighborhood. She came by horseback and she had a little black satchel she always took along. I think $3 was what she charged. The way she got started as a midwife was when she came across the ocean, a woman was holding a small baby who died. Granny Anne smoked a clay pipe. I remember seeing her getting a coal of fire from the fire place or the hearth of the cook stove to light her pipe. The enclosed picture was taken at Lillie Vandersand's home. I think the sun was bright, she never wore her specks only to read or sew. After she was widowed for the last time, she lived near her son Thomas Gillelan Jr.. She became active in Pleasant Grove Church, always helping others help themselves. She planned her own funeral service and her favorite dress to war. The Gillelan grandaughters had their own burial ideas, blue silk lace trimmed shroud, white satin slippers with heels, gray velvet brocade casket, gray granite monument. The name on the monument is Ann E. Mccormick."

Lucille Herring Davidson, wife of Marcus Davidson remembers that "Granny Anne was great at directing vistors on how to bake. She waould take a trip to the cellar for crock of milk, skim off the heavy cream, mix flour, sugar, eggs and cream. The kids got to stir the cookies, sprinkle them with sugar and then bake them. They would eat them with milk. Granny Ann had the "Dutchy" speech of Germany. Granny Anne would tell of her childhood days in Germany where she and her brother cared for geese. They herded milk goats on hillsides."

No proof of death for Jean/John Richard(s) so don't know if she was widowed or if she just left him.1

Robert Gilliland1

M, #2770, b. circa 1771, d. circa September 1854
Last Edited=9 Dec 2017
     Robert Gilliland was born circa 1771 at Maryland.2 He was the son of Thomas Gilliland and Margaret ? Robert Gilliland married Nancy Ann Roberts on 5 February 1798 at Nelson County, Kentucky.3 On March 7, 1805, Robert purchased 160 acres of land on the waters of Cane Run in Shelby County, Kentucky from James D. Henderson and his wife Eliza for £200.4

Robert Gilliland appeared on the 1810 Federal Census of Shelby County, Kentucky, with a household listed as two males under 10, one male 10-15, one male 26-44, four females under 10, and one female 26-44.5

Note: There was another Robert Gilliland in the 1810 census for Shelby County with a household listed as two males under 10, two males 26-44, five females under 10, and one female 26-44. He was listed three places down from a Thomas Gilliland (with a household of two males under 10, one male 45 and over, four females under 10, one female 10-15, and one female 26-44.)6


On June 8, 1813, Robert and his wife, listed as Agnes (according to "List of Traditional Nicknames in Historic Documents" on Family Search Wiki, Agnes can be a nickname for Nancy), sold 60 acres of land on the waters of Cane Run, Shelby County, Kentucky, to Asahel Boggs for the sum of £15. (The 1810 census record showed Robert living between two Boggs men.)7

Robert Gilliland appeared on the 1830 Federal Census of Morgan County, Illinois, with a household listed as one male 15-19, one male 50-59, one female 15-19, and one female 50-59.8

Robert Gilliland appeared on the 1840 Federal Census of Morgan County, Illinois, with a household listed as one male 60-69, two females under 5, one female 5-9, one female 30-39, and one female 60-69.9

Robert Gilliland and Nancy Ann Roberts appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Ursa township, Adams County, Illinois, enumerated 29 September 1850.10 Robert Gilliland died intestate circa September 1854 at Adams County, Illinois.11 His son William Perry was appointed administrator of his estate on September 30, 1854.12

There is speculation that Robert's father was Thomas Gilliland, son of James Gilliland. This is because of the biographical sketch of his grandson, Dr. William E. Gilliland, that appeared in the book Portrait and Biographical Record of Adams County, Illinois, which said in part "The great-grandfather of our subject, Thomas Gilliland, was born on the Atlantic, while his parents were crossing from Ireland. He was reared on the boundary line between Delaware and Maryland."11
