Sorry I cant help you but here is a suggestion. You might want to check a county map for that area as it might have been in a different county at that time. They seemed to change every year.
My Gilliland family was in Penn. in the early 1730's and then moved to Maryland.

Hi,
I found my family in Mifflin County,PA..........I found Sarah "Jane" Gilliland's parents names in on her death record. Her parents are Matthew Gilliland and Jane Cluggage......so, I went into the Mifflin County Courthouse and for a gift to my husband.......I asked if in any way if they could make up any kind of records for me.......well, I did not know BUT, any person who died prior to 1905 when you can send for their death certificate.....they could make one in the Death Registery office for $3.00 a copy. I had one made up of Sarah Jane showing proof of her parents and, one for her husband .....I also had a few done for myself when I found this out! What a GREAT thing to do........
Matthew Gilliland was born in 1788 in German Valley, Pennsylvania.........is he in your tree?

Good for you. I had trouble figuring it out from Census and other data. Matthew it is. In my search I found a note posted by Robert K McConeghy III that there were three Cluggage sisters who married Gillilands -- Jane, Mary and [Martha Cluggage married to Robert b. 1807} but Matthew's line (brother to Robert?) seemed to go to his parents (not certain, but a good place to start) John Gilliland abt 1750 to 1836 died in Huntingdon Co. married to Hannah Michaels. Grandfather of Matthew [father of John 1750] appears to be John 1710 born in York Co. PA married to Jane Cluggage. Also Richard Rutherford born in 1790 in Scotland - Died in Huntingdon Co. appears to be the father of Vincent. But you probably knew this. Hope this helps. Good news should be shouted from rooftops. Keep up the good work.

Bea I have no Rutherfords that I know of. I know nothing about Mathew except what I told you yesterday. I also know he was in the Pennsylvania Militia according to the DAR but again his records gave me nothing. Becky
