In Reply to: Gilland family history by Sheila Hfley of 47


I saw your post and realize it is old but I may be working on a family that fits your Benjamin Gilland and Elizabeth McEldery. In my family I do not have the wife's last name but her first name is Elizabeth. My Benjamin was born ca Dec 1852 and has children that were born starting approx 1883 so it would fit your marriage date. He was born in Indiana and moved to North Dakota to Standing Rock Indian Reservation. I show his parents as James Gilland and Clarrisa Bartlett. He joined the Army on 15 April 1876 at the age of 24. I have found 7 children so far for Benjamin and Elizabeth Gilland. Have you found any children or parents for Benjamin that we can confirm this connection? Hope we can make a connection.
