This research relates to the John R. Gililland males born from
1820 to 1830. There are reportedly three, but the record appears
incorrect. Robert 'Gil' Gililland reports by e-mail that each of
the three Missouri brothers had a son John R. Here's what Gil
Mathias' son John R.
B: 1/18/1820, Lincoln County, MO
D: 9/7/1865, Grayson County, TX (moved there in 1858)
M: Mary Catherine Ives, 7/3/1842, Lincoln County, MO
Robert's son John R.
M: Martha Sandefur, 5/25/1854
John Richardson's John R.
B: 1820, Lincoln County, MO
It seems more than coincidental that Mathias' son and John
Richardson's son were born and died the same years.
Robert's will, recorded in 1873, mentions his son John R.
John Richardson's will, written in 1846, does not mention a son
named John, even though it does mention children born before and
after 1820.It seems unlikely that the will neglected to
mention one son, when every other living child born to his first
wife Agnes Johnson was mentioned. For this reason, I doubt that
John Richardson had a son named John R. It further seems
unlikely in that John Richardson Gililland had a son John
Barnabus Gililland, whose descendants are fairly well
