James, I don't have the missing link to connect your Gilmers to those in my book on Virginia, but I sincerely believe they are the same family. The Glascocks in the book moved to Guilford Court House, NC and fought in the Battle of Guilford Court House in the Revolution.They are related to the Gilmers, which makes me believe one or more of the Gilmers migrated to Guilford County, NC.Can you give me any more early info. on them to help bridge the gap. i.e. William Gilmer's father, date of birth, etc. With your help, I believe we can make the connection.
