Sarah Frew Gilkey #50788326
Hi JD,

Sarah cannot be the wife of this Francis Gilkey. She was born in 1812. He was not born until 1856.

RE: your edits for Achsah Bates
The issue is what documents, if any, such as a marriage record, show that Achsah Gilkey and not some other Achsah married Willard Bates. Have you found any? I'm aware of the children, since I already found records and created memorials for them.

your edits for Achsah Bates
Have you found any proof that an "Achsah Gilkey" married Willard Bates?
Evidence I have found on says that Achsah Bates was the wife of Col. Willard Bates and died in Pownal, VT, on Nov. 3, 1822 at age 41.
Also on, I have found evidence that Achsah Gilkey, daughter of William Gilkey, Jr. and Hannah Gilkey, was born on June 29, 1782 (not 1781, as submitted by you). If Achsah Bates had been born in 1782, she'd have been 40, not 41 (as indicated in the record I found) at death. I have found no document indicating that Achsah Bates's maiden name was Gilkey.

RE: Birdie Gilkey
I looked at the pictures and there is a man with her in a couple but no name. My Mom said she was a nurse and there are pictures with her in a nursing uniform and one of them says Osceola, Iowa on the back. Most of her later pictures were taken with a lady.

RE: Birdie Gilkey
This is a interesting question. What my Mother has told me in the past Birdie got married and was married for one day and night and then got divorced. I am sure she took her maiden name back but will look at the pictures I have as I believe I have one of her and the man she married

Birdie Gilkey
Do you know where this person is buried? My mother is still living and this was her Aunt and my mother does not know her by any other name. Maybe it is Roberta but that is a guess. Her sister is Ida Gilkey Reeves who was my grandmother. I have some pictures of her I would like to put on Find A Grave and link her to my grandmother. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

RE: William Gilkey
My grandmother was Ida Katherine Gilkey Reeves memorial number 83886117. Her father was Franklin Westley Gilkey memorial number 19100248. His father was William Kenneth Gilkey memorial 50788659. I am new with all of this but was just curious if we were related.g

RE: Wm Gilkey 137448030
Thanks for your reply. I went ahead and put the pics at 137448030 and 162179492 (William and Caroline Steen Gilkey). My interest is in the Steen family and these pictures were in an old Civil War era album that belonged to Robert Pollock Steen (69911785). Let me know if you have any further questions. The captions explain their origin more in detail.

Unless you have an objection, I will post a picture (cdv) of Wm Gilkey and Caroline Callie Steen/Stein Gilkey (wedding pose?) on Wm's Find A Grave site.
