In my Westmoreland county book there is a mention of Capt David Kilgore.

Early Settlers of Mt Pleasant Township

Capt. David Kilgore emigrated from Cumberland County before the Revolution.
He had been married in Cumberland to Miss Sarah Mickey. Her services are
to be traced up in the history of the Eighth Pennsylvania Regiment, of
which he was a captain. His descendants were (1) James, who moved to Ohio;
(2) Daniel, married to a daughter of Joshua Reynolds, and sister of the old
Capt. Reynolds settled on a part of the old farm, where he died at a great
age. He left a large family. (3) William; moved to Ohio (4) Ezekial, moved
to Kentucky (5) John, married a daughter of Alexander Hunter, Mout Pleasant
township; died, leaving four sons and one daughter. (6) David, moved to
Ohio, and there died (7) Jessee, married several times, resided on the old
place, died at the age of sixty-eight; (8) Elizabeth, married to James
Gaff, moved to Ohio; (9) Jane, married to John Edgar, moved to Ohio (10)
Sarah, married to Gresham Hull, She and Ezekiel were twins.

Hope this helps
