Query: John and Catherine Gillum, Indiana

            Looking for birth or other records for John Gillum, born July 1839, according to He later married Catherine __ Gillum and lived in Monroe, WI. Son Harry Gillum was my maternal great-grandfather.
            Also, if you have any records on Catherine Gillum, maiden name unknown, it would be appreciated.  She is listed as born in North Carolina.
            My grandmother, Elizabeth Jane Gillum Gallagher, used to say she was related to General and Dr. Joseph Warren, a Revolutionary War hero, or even went back to John Smith and Pocahontas. I'm trying to trace it back, and separate truth from legend.
            The name Gillum could be French (Gillaume) or a variation of Gilliam or Gillom.
