In case you didn't locate the direction to the Gilmore Family Cemetery, Warren Co., KY. Here are the directions I have gathered. It is located South of Barren River about 8 miles from Bowling Green on a privately owned farm. Not sure, but it could be that Harry Brunson farm as Margaret Price Gilmore is supposed to be buried there. Good luck.

An e-mail from Ginny Fallon 7 May 1999 says:
James and Martha Denniston Gilmore had four daughters and four sons. The sons were John, Joseph, William and Samuel. The daughters were Agnes, Eleanor, Isabel, and Mary Foster Gilmore. This can be found in VA wills before 1799. James will filed January 7, 1783. The graves of James and Martha Deniston Gilmore are at the cemetery of High Bridge Church, near Natural Bridge, VA. About 1730 James Gilmore came to America and settled in PA for about seven years. In the book "Gilmore-Carter and Allied Families"by Helen Thomas and Dolly Reed Barmann are listed eleven children viz; James, Thomas,, John Samuel, Mary, Margaret, Joseph, Isabella, Agnes, Eleanor, and William.
According to Helen Gilmore Thomas, John Gilmore, the third son of James and Martha Gilmore, was the father of the Revolutionary War soldier Patrick Gilmore. John Gilmore was born in Ireland in 1728 and he was 27 years old in 1755. In a book called "They Went That Away" by Charles Hughes Harlin of Va, in Volume 3, page 10, John Gilmore age 27 enlisted in the Continental war in Major Andrew Lewis' company in Augusta County, Va. John had a widow in North Carolina in 1790.
The first account we have of Patrick Gilmore is that he was born 1753 in Augusta County Va. His wife was Martha Hays according to Helen Gilmore Thomas. He served in the Il Regiment of the American Revolution from VA when IL was a county of Va. The records are in the VA State Library in Richmond. In 1779 Patrick was paid for service in North and South Carolina and Virginia and received Bounty. The 1790 census shows Patrick in Mecklenburg Co. with seven sons. The 1800 census lists him with four sons in Mecklenburg Co. NC with William Gilmore living next place. In 1804 Patrick appears on Montgomery Co tax list in district # 2 with 2 horses, also appearing John, Richard, and William (for the first time), also Daniel William and Matthew who previously appeared. In 1809 he paid taxes in Warren Co. KY along with Andrew H. Gilmore and Patrick Jr. The 1810 census of Warren Co. KY lists Patrick, Richard, Andrew and John Gilmore. Patrick died Feb 3, 1824 order book @ E Warren Co. KY and is buried in Gilmore cemetery south of Barren River and 8 miles from Bowling Green, KY. His wife Martha was living with Joseph in 1840, and in 1830 with Andrew.

According to the DAR Patriot index, Patrick was born in Augusta County VA. He served in the Illinois Regiment of the American Revolution from Virginia in the Company of Captain John Kennedy of Melita for Kentucky County under the command of Col George Rogers Clark, ordered into service by Col John Bowman from 6 July to 20 Aug 1780. they joined in an expedition against the Indians. Patrick was also cited in North Carolina for furnishing items and moneys to support the Militia of North Carolina. Patrick's tombstone says: PATRICK GILMORE, KY CO MILITIA, ILL REGIMENT. REVOLUTIONARY WAR 1753 1824
Martha's tombstone just says, "Martha wife of Patrick Gilmore." Martha Hays Gilmore with Andrew in the Warren Co., Ky census of 1840. (I have pictures of these tombstones)
Patrick first appears in the North Carolina records as witness to a will of Henry Walls in Mecklenburg County on October 15, 1776, in October 1804, Patrick sold two parcels of land on McDowells Creek in Mecklenburg County North Carolina. In 1805, he appears on the Montgomery County Kentucky tax list along with the other first time names Of John, Richard and William. There were already names of Daniel, William and Matthew there. In 1809, Patrick first appeared on the tax list of Warren County with 200 acres of land on Barren River. Also, 2 Johns and an Andrew appear.
The 13 February 1824 probate filed in Order Book C names widow Martha Gilmore and gives an inventory listing purchases including John, Martha, Joseph, Francis, Andrew, Richard and Patrick, presumably sons.

William and Martha are believed to have moved to Montgomery County around 1804-1805. William's widow Martha moved to Callaway County Missouri in 1839.
I believe that John H. GILMORE who moved from Warren Co. KY to Christian Co with wife Caty. Darrell was a son of William's brother Richard. Other researchers I have talked to have concluded that my line must be Richards just by a process of elimination. Ted Stout email@example.com
