William Bourland (c1730s?-1804 SC) of South Carolina was not documented in the published genealogy, "The Bourlands in America" by Carl and May Read, 1976, but as a father of 13 children, he was a major progenitor of Bourlands and descendants in America. His wife, Mary, may have been Mary Kilgore, possibly a daughter of James William Kilgore born in County Down, Ulster (d 10 Sep 1771 Cumberland Co PA) and Elizabeth Jack (b 9Sep1727 Ardstraw, Tyrone, Ulster- d 1Feb1792), although research continues. She may have been a second wife.
