Joy, I had not seen the info about David. I am familiar with the advocate. David was in Montgomery Co by 1803. John was married in 1802.I would say close enough to do futher investigation. I have the births of David's children John 1806 d 1871 Henderson Co Some of this family moved to Curry Co NM by 1910. William Flynn 1810 d 1871 Madison Co, Thomas T 1812 d c1880 Henderson Co, David 1815 died ca 1853 Henderson Co married Temperance Yarborough of Carrol Co. Mary 1825 died or married aft1860, Friona b 1832 d or married aft 1850. Sarah the wife od David b sc ca1790 died aft 1860 Henderson Co. per the 1830 census there may be another son and two daughters. I have looked for everytginh on the Gilliam. Polly/Mary may have been married in Henderson Co as was Benjamin's sons Robert and Vernal and daughter Elizabeth who married John Dyer. All of the other children were married in Miss. Ronert, Vernal, and Elizabeth named daughters Nancy, and Vernal and Elizabeth names sons Benjamin. Maybe we can locate David on some 1810-20 records.
