Greetings, all! The Kith & Kin Cafe is our newest board here at Gilliland Trails and I hope you'll find this a cozy spot to meet & greet your extended Gilliland family. Pull up a chair, toss another log on the fire and share your stories, tall tales, happenings and hellos.

I'd like to start this off with a toast to Melissa (darred29) who's celebrating a birthday today, September 13. Have a great one, Melissa!

Hello everyone.  I just wanted to introduce myself.  My name is Dawn and my maiden name is Gilliland.  I descend from Elder John Gilliland born 1797 in North Carolina.  I am very interested in family history and look forward to meeting you all.

Glad to see you here on Gilliland Trails. Pull up a chair while I toss another log on the fire and fix some hot chocolate. (It's COLD here!) Make yourself right at home.

Madiann mhath, Todd! 

Welcome to GT, where you're always among family. We've only been around for 10 months but hope over the years to become another good resource for Gilliland history and genealogy. I appreciate your enthusiasm and offer to share with others! Now I'm off to read your other post in General Discussion.

Thanks for stopping by the Kith and Kin and should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Good day all:
I am a descendant of the Alabama Gillilands.
From reading most of the posts about all the Gillilands, it seems (at first glance) that we all might have come from the same set of brothers that migrated from Ireland in 1730(ish).

Does anyone have one Main Tree out there that lists all of the lines together?

Symera and Dawn,
You two may want to check with other.  It seems to me that John H Gilliland, b.  11 Jul 1797 to 12 Oct 1857 in Alabama and Elder John Gilliland 1797 could be one and the same person.  Check your notes.  Symera has posted her line already, so it looks like a good place to start.

P.S.  one Main Tree ??  It would be nice, but for now it is somewhere in the middle of the forest.  Oh well....

Hi Symera. Welcome to Gilliland Trails!

Just got back from Ohio but I see you and Paul have had quite the conversation going about your Alabama Gillilands.

I still have some settling in to do but hope to soon have some time to look in on your exchanges.

Nice to have you in our merry band!

Thank you for the welcome Kate.
You have done a wonderful job with this site.
I was literally at a dead end when I found it.

Dawn - welcome!
I had to take my tree down - it had some discrepancies.
I am currently working on a new one.
I believe Paulg85 might be correct on 'our' John H/Elder. 
I will dig a little deeper and see if I can get more information.

Hello, cousins...

Do we have any descendants here of Andrew Edmiston Gillilan and Amanda Esther Kee? I ask because if any of you are, I have a pleasant surprise for you.
