Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 7, 1802
Guilford County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Feb. 5, 1884
Miller County
Missouri, USA

Son of James and Mary (Morrison) Gilleland, husband of Mary B. Welborn, March 09, 1823.

Samuel died on the farm in Saline Twp., Miller Co., at Olean. The cemetery is located on the original Gilleland Farm, land donated for the cemetery by the Gilleland Family. Headstone reads "Loved one has gone from our circle on Earth, we shall meet him no more, he is gone to his home and his afflictions are o'er." He moved with his family from North Carolina to Kentucky before moving to Missouri in early 1828. (The Gillelands were of Scottish ancestry, the Welborns English. Reference 'Jefferson City & Cole County, MO.' p. 440, by Ford.)
Samuel and Mary were married in the Old Mulkey Meetinghouse, Tompkinsville, Monroe County, Kentucky.

Old Mulkey Meetinghouse State Historic Site

This site preserves the oldest log meetinghouse in Kentucky, built in 1804 during a period of religious revival. Many Revolutionary War soldiers and early pioneers, including Daniel Boone's sister, Hannah, are buried in the churchyard. The log building also saw the beginning of one of the largest denominations of the Christian religion ever organized.
