See if any of these "Peachy" Gilmers make a connection, I believe your Mary
Peachy Gilmer, who married Thomas B. Boswell in about 1804, is listed at the
bottom of this info. It appears that some of the Boswells were born in
Franklin, Va. It appears your Mary Peachy Gilmer wound up in Iowa, where
she died in 1860. Let me know how you come out with this info.

Dorothy, all these folks are no doubt related, and these names have carried
down thru the generations.

Since my Mary was born in Franklin or so the IGI sheets says submitted by
her husband and she was married to Thomas B. Boswell in Franklin. These
are the only two listed for Franklin on the IGI sheets I have for VA. I
bought the Pioneer Families of Franklin and nothing in it at all. Which
only means probably that they came to the county later.
I do have some Census Records but not sure its for Franklin Co. I have
Riffles, Boswells also from the same area. Isn;'t there something that
would list the people in that county. I did belong to the Historical
Library so guess I will join again. Her name is listed as Gilmore on the
IGI sheets but her children have carried the name Gilmer forward especially
for Peachy Gilmer Boswell.Now in the book The Gilmers in America Thomas
Walker Gilmer practiced law with his Uncle Peachy R. Gilmer in Bedford Co
