Does anyone have any information on a John Gilmore b. 1758 Augusta VA.and wife Magdaline Shepherd. John's parents were Thomas and Elizabeth Thompson.
I believe John had children Thomas, William C., Samuel, Sally, Nancy, Magdaline, Martha, Jane, Frances, and Elizabeth. Does anyone have any other children listed for him? I am looking for a David b. 1797 VA who later resided Tucker co. Va now WVA. Becky
