A veteran of the Revolutionary War, John Gilliland served as a private in Capt. Craig's Company, NJ State troops. His name appears on the 1927 bronze D.A.R memorial plaque located in the church vestibule, and on the millennial Revolutionary War monument in the churchyard, both of which honor those interred here who fought for American independence. Born in Middlesex County to David and Elizabeth Gilliland, Mr. Gilliland was the husband of Leah Sperling. During the Revolutionary War he had soldiered as a man in his 40's, and was in his 87th year at the time of his death in 1823.
