1.19.1999  My Father is David Anthony Gilchrist from New Hampshire relocated to Texas 12 years ago, My paternal grandfather was Everett Gilchrist and his mother was Angelina Gilchrist. 

In researching a slave descendant line for my friend J. Bussey, whose GGGrandfather was a slave, I found that a Bussey woman married a Gilchrist man in middle 1800's and had a child and this got me on the track of researching both families, mine and hers, it came as a big and pleasant shock that me and my best friend who felt a sudden kinship were in fact somehow related in past life at least by marriage, but the Gilchrist / Bussey marriage brought a child and that links us and makes us hungry to trace it all to the beginning for both our paths.

1.24.1999    My husband's great-grandmother, Jane B./Jennie Gilchrist, was born August 1846-48 in Scotland. Arrived 1850 to America. Also referred to as "Anna" in her daughter's death certificate, but I believe that is human error on the part of the descendant filling in the information.

She married 7 Aug 1907 in Brazil, Clay, Indiana, Andrew Spears, a coal miner. They were the parents of eight children, of whom I have scanty information - all info for my husband's great-grandmother, Margaret Spears, the eldest child.

Jane B./Jennie Gilchrist Spears was listed in the 1910 Clay County census.

Thank you for any information on her parentage - have not found any clues in the area so far.

would be interested in genealogy.  Susan Holland Bush
