By 1753 a Willian Gilliland was the witness to the will of Charles Polk of Frederick County. In 1754 he was overseer of the road from Fifteen Mile Creek to Great Tonoloway.
      William Gilliland appears in the Debt Book, a tax list for Darlings Delight of Frederick County for the years 1755 to 1757. According to these records, Darlings Delight was on the west side of South Mountain. Also listed for the same area was James and Thomas Gilliland.
      On December 23, 1756, a William Gilliland was shot and scalped on the east side of Fort Frederick. He had been with a detachment under Ensign Prather. He was still alive when found on the Thomson plantation, but nothing could be done to save his life. William's will was written on May 16, 1756 and probated January 19, 1758. He gave his estate to his wife Mary Gilliland, who was the executrix of his estate.
