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

John Gilmore was the son of Thomas Gilmore who was massacred by Indians in 1763 on Kerr Creek, Rockbridge Co., VA. John, his mother and two sisters were captured by the Indians. John and his mother were released but nothing was ever learned about the sisters.
