RE: Geraldine B.
My goodness, a small world. My brother is married to Guyneth. Matter a fact my husband and I also were CB'ers. We went to a lot of breaks with Bernard & Jerry. I loved that woman very much. To your question about the pictures. I would love to have copies of them...it might be that Guyneth would like to have them also. Were you at Jerry's memorial? I was, if you were there we might of met...like I said, Jerry was special to me. She may of been my brothers mother-in-law but to me she kinda filled in as my mom also. I always felt like I belonged....LOL thanks again

RE: Gilmour
Many thanks for your message. I sent you an email.
If I get back that way I'd love to see the grave sites. Too bad I didn't know the information about the family many many years ago when I was a young boy and living in Columbia, MO.

RE: Alexander Gilmour
Many thanks for your reply Mary Beth,

My email address is: rstephens@cableone.net. If you send me your email address I will send you the links to my sites where there is lots of proved documentation and in the My Heritage site photographs of many of the Gilmours.

Alexander's father was JAMES GILMOUR [born 17 January 1745 in Lancaster County, PA; died 18 Nov 1834 in Christian County, KY. He had married an ELEANOR [whose family last name we do not know, but we know it was Eleanor from land deeds etc. They were the parents of 5 children including my ggg grandfather George Gilmour who was born on 10 March 1788 in Lincoln County, KY; married Polly Terrell Hickman on 27 Aug 1809 in Clark County, KY; died in 1835 in Christian County, KY.

We believe that JAMES GILMOUR's first wife, ELANOR died in late 1788 since he became married a second time to a Losey Lodden on 20 Feb 1789. They became the parents of your ALEXANDER GILMOUR in Lincoln County. I'm not sure when Losey died. My GENCIRCLES website has JAMES GILMOUR's Pension application which contains a lot of info about him and there is a lot of other informative documentation about him there too.

I have posted info on my site about some of Alexander and Elizabeth [Campbell] Gilmour's children, but you are the first descendant from this line that I have met on line.

I lived in Columbia, MO for three years in the late 1940's, as a young boy, but didn't know much about the family then. I've traveled through much of the state and have spent time in Kirksville, where some Gilmours are buried and in Audrain County and in Hannibal to see Mark Twain's home, but haven't been in Monroe County as far as I can remember. Didn't know about the snakes there. Are they copperheads or cotton mouths?

Hope to hear from you.

RE: Alexander Gilmour
Thanks you for your note. Alexander Gilmour was the brother of my ggg grandfather George Gilmour. I have been doing research on the Gilmour family since about 1968 following the death of my grandmother and great aunts [all Gilmour's] who had saved photos, news clippings, family charts and letters of correspondence etc about the Gilmour family. I inherited them and began some additional research and then visited Lincoln County, KY and places in Augusta and Rockbridge Counties in Virginia and in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania where the family had lived. When the Internet kicked in I found additional info and have compiled family trees in both Gencircles and My Heritage.Alexander Gilmour was married twice: first to Elizabeth D. Campbell [born in about 1794 in Virginia and she died before 1850 in Monroe County, MO] and secondly to Ann Callison [born in 1807 in Augusta County, VA; died in Jan 1882 in Jefferson, Monroe County, MO].

RE: Olla Belle
Took me a bit, but yeah, I figured it out! :-) I've been working with a different relative of Olla Belle's, so I was sort of confused initially.
