John Gilmore applied for a Revolutionary War pension 7 Oct 1835 [S 10745 NC] in Marengo Co. Alabama, aged 76. He stated that he was born in Lancaster Co. Pennsylvania November 8, 1759, record of his age being in the family Bible: that when he was called into service he lived in Cumberland Co. North Carolina, from thence he removed to Wilkes Co. North Carolina, and afterwards to Lincoln Co. Georgia. From thence he came to Alabama [then Mississippi Territory], and first resided in Washington Co., then in Clarke Co., then in Wilcox Co., and finally in Marengo Co., where he said he had been living for many years.
I don't know who his family was. Does anyone have a Gilmore family bible with a John Gilmore b 8 Nov 1759 entry?
