Hi everyone...

i have been doing a search on my father's side... i don't have much info but
i do have this.. the following is from a book/pamphlet that my mother
converted.. but we only got the first 5 pages... if anyone has a copy of
this or any other info i would really appreciate it.... especially on the
wife of John Russell Gilchrist born in 1912 died July 25, 1999 or more to
the point his wife... all i know is that they were married in 51 and she was
born in pocona(sp?), OK in 1924 and she died in 1997 she was Lena Marie
Workman (Blakner) Gilchrist and (they had three children: Lonnie, Orline,
and Bobby) her line... if anyone know anything about any of this it would be
appricated... my grandfather (John Russell) just died and i am trying to do
this for my father, aunt and uncle....

thank you so much.. in advance...
Louise Marie (Gilchrist) Patterson

Gilchrist Family

Gilchrist came from Scotland to Ohio.

There is a question whether John's parents were:

John Gilchrist and Elizabeth Brackley or
Robert and Anna Gilchrist

It is believed that the Gilchrist children were:

1. John Gilchrist; he married Amanda Gray. They had four children: Lydia
Josephine, Owen Fielden, Etta Saphronia, and Willard Virgil. John's second
marriage was to Arminda Huntsman Gray. They had three children: Frank
Adrain, John Stanley, and George Baird. She had two children by a previous
marriage: Eliza Jane Gray and Idella Amanda Gray. John's second wife
(Arminda) was his first wife's (Amanda) brother's wife.

2. Seth Gilchrist, never married, he was killed when he was young.

3. Margaret Gilchrist, never married.

4. Elizabeth Gilchrist, married Abson Onsbough -- no children.

Gilchrist was formerly spelled GILCHRIEST, but the E was dropped in this

John's middle name has been found to be spelled Brackney not Brakney.
