(1996) The fragmentary and undocumented record I have found says James Gilliland and Susannah Young were married in Lancaster County Pa., and later migrated to Rockingham County and then Botetourt County Va.. Their son Shepherd Gilliland deposed after James’s death that he had served in the Revolutionary War: “...James was drafted in the company of Capt. George Houston; again he performed a tour in McIntosh’s campaign; refer to the affidavit of Jacob Lemon, a pensioner.” Connie Metheny of the Bath County Historical Society says the records of this family would be in the Augusta County Courthouse.

Twelve of the Gilliland children are named in James’s will [S010]: Shepherd and Joseph divided James’s plantation in Botetourt County after his death, also each got a horse and saddle; they were enjoined to support Susannah for the rest of her life. Sally [R003] received one cow. James received a horse worth $50. Betsy and Mary each received furniture, a horse and a saddle. John, William, Samuel, Fency (?), Nancy, and Susannah each received $1. All assets left after this division of property went to James’s wife Susannah. Unlike other wills of that time and place, no slaves are mentioned. At the time the will was written, ~1845, six of the children were still alive:

Shepherd Gilliland [R303]
Jenny Lemon, wife of Jacob Lemon, in Botetourt County
Nancy Lemon [R304], wife of Conrad Lemon, in Alleghany County
Susannah Shanklin, widow of John Shanklin, in Botetourt County
Sarah (Sally) Wood [R003], wife of Edward Wood, in Bath County
Elizabeth (Betsy) Carnes, wife of John Carnes, in Monroe County.
