John and Frances Gillam made quite a few land transactions between Lunenburg VA and Granville NC. There appears to be some connection to the Robertson family that may be FRrances' family and maiden name but not proved. I know their son Maj Robert Gillam who married Miss Sankey and later resided in Spartanburg SC was born in 1720 and that said John the father died, from memory 1756 or there abouts. Do not know his birthdate or place of birth. This would make things easier. There is a Harris Gillam in local documents, could this be his Father? I just don't know. Can anyone help me make sense of this puzzle?
