Joseph Gilmore, according to historians, was considered " of the most prominent and highly honored citizens of Rockbridge County." Along with his brother, William, Joseph inherited the home property of their father, James Gilmore, Sr. Later he bought out William's interest and became the sole owner of Sidney Vale, the plantation where several generations of Rowland and Gilmore children were born.
To William Gilmore and his wife Martha Lackey were born nine children and the eldest, a girl, was named Agnes in memory of her grandmother Lackey. She was born in Lancaster Co., PA, in 1761. So William Gilmore and his wife Martha Lackey and his brother Joseph Gilmore and his wife Susannah Paxton, daughter of William Paxton and his wife Eleanor Hays, lived on the plantation they inherited from their father; their brother Thomas settled on Kerrs Creek.
