      Hi Everyone,

      I am posting the information about LINE 9 and LINE 15 in hopes that
      some of you can find additional descendants from these lines to test
      for our project. The participant for LINE 9 closely matches many
      CAMPBELLS and the participant from LINE 15 doesn't match anyone.

      LINE 9 - DNA TEST KIT #52171 This is a 37 marker DNA kit.
      Haplogroup R1b1 is the most common haplogroup in European populations.
      It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans
      re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand years ago.
      This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal
      haplotype.

      Kit #52171 has matched closely with participants in the CLAN CAMPBELL
      DNA PROJECT, coming very close to the modal haplotype for CAMPBELL.
      Kit #52171 has also joined the CAMPBELL DNA PROJECT.

      There are no known connections of this GILLESPIE line with any
      CAMPBELLS while in the U.S. This match suggests a deep ancestry,
      pre-surname, connection.

      Additional GILLESPIES whose ancestors settled in the area of Franklin
      Co. Virginia in the 1700's and 1800's are needed to test for this DNA
      project.

      "A sketch prepared by a fourth generation descendant says that Daniel
      Gillespie, was born in Ireland, lived in Franklin County, VA where his
      son Jehu was born in 1787. Daniel's name appears in Franklin County
      records, about 1786-1810. Daniel and his unnamed wife had three
      daughters and ten sons. Several sons migrated to Kentucky, the
      Carolinas, Tennessee and Alabama. Many, but not all, details of the
      sketch have been verified."

      Generation #1 is an UNCONFIRMED ancestor. Generations #2 - #4 are
      confirmed ancestors.

      #1 Daniel Gillespie ( ) born Ireland, of Franklin County, VA
      #2 Jehu Gillespie (1787-1830) and Elizabeth Coons of VA>TN>Pickens
      County, AL
      #3 George Washington Gillespie (1816-1869) and Rachel Emily Brown of
      Pickens County, AL>TX
      #4 Silas Belton Gillespie (1860-1933) and Nancy Alice Solomon of TX>IT>TX

      LINE 15 - DNA TEST KIT #90086 This is a 37 marker DNA kit.
      Haplogroup R1b1c is the most common haplogroup in European
      populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as
      humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand
      years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic
      modal haplotype.

      Some researchers believe that Col. Daniel Gillespie (1743-1829) is
      related to GROUP 1 - THOMAS GILLESPIE b. 1719 who married NAOMI
      THOMPSON. The results of the test for this participant show that he is
      not a match to GROUP 1 or any other Gillespie DNA group. We need
      another participant from this family to take the DNA test as
      conformation of these results.

      Generations:

      #1 Col. Daniel Gillespie b. 10-13- 1743 Frederick Co. VA d. 1-17-1829
      Greensboro, Guilford Co. NC, m. Margaret Hall. They are reported to
      have had 8 children.
      #2 Robert Gillespie SR. b. 7-31-1778 Guilford Co. NC, d. 9-23-1829
      Guilford Co. NC, bur. Buffalo Presbyterian Church near Greensboro, NC,
      m. Nancy Hanner
      #3 Robert Hanner Gillespie b. 6-09-1811 Guilford Co. NC, d. 2-2-1887
      McNairy Co. TN, m. Eliza M. Gorrell, both bur. at Bethel Springs
      Presbyterian Church McNairy Co. TN.
      #4 William Henry Harrison Gillespie b. 2-3-1840 Guilford Co. NC, d.
      9-19-1898 Selmer, McNairy Co. TN, m. Virginia Hall Adams

      Rowan County, North Carolina and Orange County, North Carolina.)

      Col. Daniel Gillespie (1743-1829), a brother of Col. John, secured a
      grant from Earl Granville on South Buffalo, just south of Greensboro,
      about 1765. His wife was Margaret Hall, and their children were
      Daniel, John, James, Nancy, Anne, Robert, Patrick and Thankful. Daniel
      married and died before his father, leaving two children, Daniel and
      Peggy; John became a Presbyterian minister; James moved to Tennessee
      after the War; Nancy married George Rankin, son of Robert, in 1791;
      Anne married William Anderson, son of John; Robert married Nancy,
      daughter of Robert Hanner; Patrick married Margaret, daughter of
      Patrick McGibbony; Thankful married Col. William Doak, son of Robert,
      in 1802.

      Col. John Gillespie was born in 1741 in Frederick County, Va., and
      came here in 1762, and secured a grant from Earl Granville for 640
      acres on the south side of South Buffalo. His wife was Elizabeth, and
      their children were Daniel, James S., Elizabeth and Anna. Daniel
      (1766-1833) married Lucretia Gott in 1788 and lived on the north side
      of North Buffalo at what is known as the Cannon place; James S.
      married Hannah, daughter of James Denny, in 1791, and lived on the
      Reedy Fork; Elizabeth married James H. Starrett, son of James; Anna
      married John Hanner, son of Robert, in 1802.
