It wasn't Gilliam, it's Gillam. Your Rebecca was born in 1815 - not 1825 - at least that's what I have in my records. Rebecca's brother Josephus also married a Gillam (William Gillam's sister, Sarah).

Take a look in the 1850 census - Rebecca Ann and William Gillam are living in Boone County, Indiana. He is 37 and she is 35. In 1850, they had children Hiram, Nelson, Matilda, Mary, Sarah, Zachariah and baby Hannah. (The name is mistakenly listed as "Gillum" in the census.)

This is Rebecca's family:

WILLIAM MCJIMSEY was born 1791 in Pennsylvania, and died in Jasper County, Indiana. He married RUTH MOONEY April 25, 1811 in Miami County, Ohio, daughter of JOSEPH MOONEY and REBECCA FREEMAN. She was born January 25, 1795 in Kentucky, and died April 05, 1853 in Jasper County, Indiana.

Listed in the "War of 1812 Muster Rolls" William McJimsey was in Capt. Westfall 's Mounted Co. (Oct-Nov 1812), Ohio Militia.
