William Gilmore, son of James Gilmore and his wife Martha Dennison immigrants to America from Londonderry, Ireland, was born in Augusta County (now Rockbridge County) VA., in 1760. He married, June 12, 1783, Martha Lackey, daughter of Thomas Lackey and his wife Agnes Leech. She had been born in Lancaster Co., PA., in 1761. James Gilmore, the father of William, had acquired a large estate and upon his death, this property became the inheritance of this sons William and Joseph. When Jonathan Paxton came to the Gilmore plantation seeking employment, he was successful in being hired.

The Gilmore brothers were in need of help in the cultivation and development of their extensive farm. So, when Jonathan Paxton, a distant kinsman of Mrs. Joseph Gilmore, came seeking work, he was employed. The farm prospered under his management and his youthful enthusiasm and untiring service to his task produced good results, pleasing to his employers. So much impressed was William Gilmore with young Paxton that he readily consented to his marriage to his daughter Agnes. The wedding was preformed by the Rev. William Baldridge, February 7, 1798; the bride was born on May 9, 1784 and consequently, she was only fourteen years old.
