I have recently learned of the extensive work by my cousin Norman Waddell on his work on the Gillands' . He has traced them back to Scotland and his site will be the best info for the Gillands. There are many spellings of the Gillands as it was changed many times after we came to this country from Scotland. So check out his site , but I do have info on the Gillands . I will put here what I have and you can go from there.... There ia alot of info to add so please be patient Louise
