I am just starting to look for information about the family of my 
great-grandmother, Margret Gilchrist, believed born on Islay, Scotland, 
about 1826.  Her husband was Donald Carmichael, born 1807, also, we 
believe, on Islay in Scotland.  In 1851, they were living near Islay, 
Fenelon Township, Victoria County, Ontario.  Most of her children went 
west after the 1880's, to Manitoba and we know little about the relatives 
left behind.   
In 1851, James Gilchrist, 15 and Diane Gilchrist, 5, lived near 
my great-grandmother's family.  We believe they were her nephew and 
niece. Apparently other Gilchrist relatives lived at Woodville and 
Hartley, Ontario.
I would be grateful for any information!

Dad (Douglas Daniel) - born 1916 North Dakota 
Grandfather (Daniel John)- born in Ireland (?), moved to London, moved to Canada with
brother James, moved to North Dakota. 
My Father is deceased. His Dad died BEFORE he was born. His Mom died when he was
four years old. Into the orphanage he went. Anyway, at one time I heard we had relatives
in Seattle. Maybe James´┐Ż kin. 
I would appreciate any help or advise. Thanking you in advance.

My grandmother MARY WILDE MAMBER GILCHRIST (b.12 Aug.1907) was married
to
LINDSAY GILCHRIST b.6 Oct.1907 d.June 1986. It was her second marriage and
his first. They lived in New York State. I believe he was born in
Scotland and came to America when he was very young. His sister's name was
BESSIE GILCHRIST, she was quite a bit older than he was. I don't think
Aunt Bessie ever married, and grandpa Lindsay had no children. Would
someday like to find out who his parents were, and where he was born. He
never told me anything about his background.

Hello out there! I just subscribed to the new Gilchrist mailing list.
My verified connection to the Gilchrists goes back to my 3ggf William
Gilchrist who was born in1758 and farmed the Corputechan farm in the
Parish of Killean and Kilchenzie, near Campbeltown on the Argylle
Peninsula , Scotland.
I hail from Michigan where my great grandfather Donald settled when he
emmigrated in 1872. He was married to Agnes McLachlan 12-16-1856 in
Campbeltown . I am trying to find their ship and port of departure/arrival.
I am retired and presently live in Ocala Florida.
Regards, Dean Gilchrist
