Hi, I am looking for any Gilliland connections from North Carolina and western Tennessee. I have tested with Ancestry (n2shoebiz) and my brother with Ftdna Y111 (574159). I also have family trees in both locations. On Ftdna, we match extremely close to Gillilands with a connection to the Thomas Gilliland line (1830-1888) from SC... Sharon

I did the DNA test through Ancestry.com. Is there a way I can add that info to this Gilliland database? My maternal grandfather was John Isaac Gilliland. He was born and raised in SC, but his family was from Eastern TN (Cocke County, Newport, Cosby) area. My mother's maiden name is Johnny Sue Satterfield.  Thank you for your help!

I don't believe the Dr. Robert gilliland mentioned here is buried in Decatur County Indiana.  I think he is in Union or Fayette County. There is a John Gilleland 5th PA, Rev War in Decatur County buried in a small cemetery adjacent to John Gilliland Rockingham County N.C. War of 1812.  I have never been able to document the fathers of either, but i have seen documents that show Robert marrying a Helmick in Union County.  Also the 1830 census shows a John Gilliland in Decatur County with a male 80-90 years old.  I believe the old John died shortly after coming to Decatur County but i don't know their relationship.

My Grandma maiden name is Gilleland her dad was Andrew Jesse Gilleland.  My Great great grandparents (David Andrew and Sarah Elizabeth Skaggs Gilleland settled in Somervell County (where we still live today) looking for other descendants of this branch of Gillelands.  We have lots of information on Jesse Gilleland and some on David Andrew but not much beyond that.

Just east of San Antonio, outside of Floresville, Texas there is a Gilliland ranch. I understand in one cemetery a few Gilliland's are buried there. One can check via findagrave.com Grenade Gilliland migrated to the area from Louisiana. His father from what I have found was Abel Gilliland, son of John Gilliland founder of Newport, Tennessee around 1780.

I just visited San Antonio, and the Alamo.  While there I found a list of defenders contained a GEORGE GILLILAND
This is not in my line, but if you have Texas Gillilands, take a look

Hello Robin Budd.  In case you do not have this info; we, too, north of the 49th parallel have a Gilliland cemetery - and about ten of the names there belong to your family.

Access the site at gilliland + cemetery - northumberland county, ontario  It's part of the larger canadianheadstones.com network.    This small, Gilliland cemetery has been designated as a provincial heritage property and is maintained by the Alnwick - Haldimand municipality.
Clicking on a name will show you their head-stone with a nice, typed transcription below.

Good site,
Gary.

I ran out of space, so here is part II of my message, and it concerns the search for John (H?) Gilliland's family.
As I said in part I of my post, I am working on Archibald Gilliland family...
this family could cause some confusion unless NC researchers know the following:  Archibald was a young unmarried man in Pennsylvania in the 1760-70 period.  He lived mostly in York county, and like many young scotch-irish of the period, he must have felt that there were more opportunities for him in North Carolina.  So along with a few of his neighbors (Beaty family) he got a land grant from King George for a plantation in Mecklenburg county.  He may have married there, I have never been able to find his marriage record. 
I guess he and the Beatys didn't like it there, so they sold their land after only a few years, and returned to York County, Pennsylvania, and bought new land in Hopewell Twp.  I have never found any connection to the many other Gilliland branches in North or South Carolina--except they all loved the name John!
