David was the son of John & Martha Shoemaker Gilliland. On 14 Nov 1863, he married Margaret McKim.
They were the parents of Grace, Nellie Maude (died in infancy), Nellie (died in infancy), Ralph (died as a child), and Golda Edith.
The Gilland/Gilliland name change occurred when David and his brother Lewis went to the bank to ask for a loan, the bank officer asked how to spell their last name and they answered, "Just like it sounds". Today their descendants are known as "Gilland".
