http://www.misbach.org/genealogy/g473.html Much of the information obtained from two sources; Dr. Mary L. Gilliland of Los Angeles, CA, now deceased; and "Virginia Militia in the Rev. War" page 110. The possible father of James Gilliland might have been Nathan Gilliland. The ancestral file of LDS Church lists the birth year of James as 1748 and the place as Lancaster, PA., and gives the marr date as 13 Jun 1763. It also gives the birth place of Susanah Young as Augusta Co., VA and her death date as 12 Ju 1842 and her parents as John Young and Agnes Elizabeth Davis. The place of birt of all the children of James and Susanah is given as Rockingham County, VA and the death date of Sarah (Sally) Gilliland as Dec 1850 in Millboro,Bath, VA. Debbie Gilliland, 8961 Rondabout Ct., Elk Grove, CA 95624 wrote me that James Gilliland and Susanah Young were married 13 June 1768 (not 1767) in the St. James Episcopal Church in Lancaster, PA. _TYPE: Unspecified ABBR: VA Marriages 1770-1853 for John's two marriages pp 524 & 540 _MASTER: Y MARRIAGE_168: Marr information obtained from Botetourt County, VA Marriages 1770-1853 for John's two marriages pp 524 & 540;; Marr information obtained fro Botetourt County, VA Marriages 1770-1853
