      This will be a quick message to let you know that we now have a second descendant connected to the line of the Gillespie gunmakers in our project.  One DNA participant is from the line of William (the gunmakers) and the second from the line of Robert, his brother.  The basic genealogies of the participants are posted below. 

       

      I connected with the second man at a highland game recently and did some friendly arm twisting :-)  This is a major development toward documenting the DNA haplotype for this Gillespie line as they both descend from immigrant ancestors who were brothers.

        I had writen before and am on the list but I keep seeing the names and area nd feel my family may be connected some way.

        My line is thru Silas Gillispie son of James Gilaspy and Margaret_____born (1770-75) on the Bluford Islands on the way to America. He was of Irish decent and his paerent were James and Margeret were Scottish-Irish and came from Tyrone County in Ulster Northern Ireland. He and Margaret departed Yorkshire England, sometime between 1750-1770.Their son Silas was born on the way to America on Bluford Island as above notes.They then went to SC and on to Flat Rock in NC where James bought 100 acres of land in 1796. They had another son James Wilson, born 1784-1794. Silas married Polly Emaline Nial in 1790. Silas bought 200 acres on East Bull Creek for the sum of $100.00 in 1805. My family still lives in these areas and I am there often. My grandparents are married to two of the Gillespie children from Silas and Polly.

        Silas and Pollys children were:

        Nancy Emaline Gillispie married Alexander Griffin (realtive on my grandfathers side)

        Hannah Agnes Gillespie married Jame Ray

        William Kelsey Gilespie married Delila Burrell

        George Washington Gillespie (unmarried)

        Judith Gillespie married William Arrington

        James Wilson Gillespie married 1st______/, 2nd Elizabeth Sprinkle, 3rd Hannah Buckner

        Joyce Gillespie married Love Clark

        Talitha Gillespie married Berry Lewis (relative of my grandmother and my parents still live at the old home place) 

        Would anyone from this line help to be tested? I do not know of the Gillespie last name since my realtive married into the Gillespie line but it is all from the Big Laurel Section of Madison County NC. This is near Marshall NC.

        Any info on this I have pictures of Talitha Gillespie and Silas' cabin but they are copies. Both of my relative were Baptist ministers and past info along thru bibles etc. but I am a few generations down the line...

          Hi Sharon,
           
          My great-grandmother was a Gillespie so I was pretty far removed from the surname also.  That is why I asked Richard Gillespie to take the test and then found two other distant cousins to test for our line.  You just have to search for some distant cousins and offer either to split the cost of the DNA test or pay for the whole thing yourself.  I have had to pay for numerous tests to get this DNA project up and running.  I had to do the same thing for the McKenzie DNA project.
           
          Are you in contact through genealogy research with any distant cousins from your line?  If your Grandparents are married to Gillespies of this line aren't there cousins that you could ask to take the test?  Begging is permitted :-)
           
          If you can give me more detailed information about your family - names, dates, locations - not to include any living people or the generation before them - I can post your request for a cousin to test on the Gillespie DNA website - but I will also need to know what you are willing to offer that person in terms of costs.
           
          If you really think that your family might be related to the Gillespie Rifle line you should purchase the 37 marker DNA kit as that is how many markers are being tested for those two men.
           
          I'll ask Charles Moore to take a look at the names you have posted here and see where he thinks you might fit in.
           
          What county in NC is Flat Rock located?  We can also post a message on that county genealogy site to look for cousins.
           
          I don't know if I have answered your questions - please let me know - I should be online on and off tonight.
           
          PS have you done research in Johnson Co. IL or Sumner Co. TN?  Seems like I have seen your name for years.
           
          Connie

            Hey Connie

            I have a quick question about the results that came in
            for yet another Gillespie line. Is there any way for
            us to match the test kit number with the member name?
            My guess is probably not but somehow, I thought that I
            was able to do that before.

            I'm waiting for my cousin's results to come in and I
            know that he and his wife travel quite a bit. It
            takes about 4 weeks or more these days for results to
            be posted, right?

            Thanks! Kerry

              Hi Kerry,

              I protect the name of the DNA test participant at the Gillespie DNA
              website for privacy reasons - there are kits were the person
              interested in DNA/genealogy and the one who purchased the DNA kit is
              not the person tested - and frequently the person tested only agreed
              after anonymity was promised.

              When I post information about the test results of a DNA kit at this
              site I do not include the participant name. At this Yahoo site it
              is the choice of the participant to reveal his name or not, or to
              simply use the DNA test kit number in place of a name - which would
              make me very happy.

              I have even included in the description of this Yahoo site that
              revealing your true name is not required as information here can be
              viewed by anyone in the world.

              I also feel very strongly about protecting everyone here against
              identity theft. That is why I don't want to see people revealing
              information about living people or even the generations close to
              them.

              I will tell you that my cousin Rick took the DNA test for our line
              and give you that kit #, but I will not reveal the name of Rick's
              father or grandfather. I can also tell you that I paid to have the
              DNA test done for two other cousins from my line, but I will not
              tell you who they are as they demanded that their names not be
              revealed. They aren't participating in discussions anyway.

              Now, to sound just like a radio talk show host, "having said that"
              it would make things easier for everyone to follow here at Yahoo if
              a DNA kit # would be included in the discussions. I have trouble
              figuring out what discussion goes with what test kit also. And I
              can't match email addresses since the email address I am given for
              the FTDNA site and the email address used by people here at Yahoo
              are often different.

              I'm not even sure about the identity of everyone who has joined this
              Yahoo site as some join and do not introduce themselves and their
              line and do not participate in discussions.

              I want this Yahoo site open to everyone so new people can find it
              and become interested in the DNA testing which benefits all of us.
              However, making this an open site brings with it certain
              difficulties.

              I know I haven't answered your question entirely, but when you do
              get your test results you will be given the email addresses of the
              people you match - provided they have signed the release with FTDNA
              to reveal their email address to those they match - even with FTDNA
              that information can be blocked by participants.

                Kerry, I apologize, I read your message quickly and missed that you
                were waiting for results for a cousin and the results will be sent
                to their computer and not to you.

                The last results that I posted - R1a - were not what you were
                waiting for, so you don't have to worry at this time about your line
                not matching anyone else.

                Check the NEWS page at the Gillespie DNA website. If your cousin
                has sent his genealogy to me it may be posted there with his kit
                number and the approximate due date for the results. If you know
                his lineage, you might be able to tell which kit is his.

                I can't give you his kit number without his permission, but let me
                know if this helps you figure out which is his. Email me directly
                for anything further.

                  Have DNA tests been submitted by know male line descendants of Silas? 
                  I am a descendant of the Hannah Agnes Gillespie listed below, a daughter of Silas. 
                  Do we know for sure what Gillespies were Silas' and James' ancestors?  I have James born abt. 1740 and Margaret as listed below, but beyond that I am unsure.  I am very new at all this.
                  I have seen at least 13 trees on ancestry.com (which we all know can be full of swiss cheese holes!!!) where James' parents are listed as Thomas Gillaspy/Gillespie and Naomi Thompson, but the birthplaces do not coincide with the history we have had given to us about the Bluford Island birth of Silas or even the birthplaces of James and Margaret.   I've seen tons of information about Thomas and Naomi all over this board, so I'm confident someone here can point me in the right direction :)

                  Any help you can provide would be so appreciated !
                  Thanks,
                  Karyn

That is why I asked Richard Gillespie to take the test and then found two other distant cousins to test for our line. You just have to search for some distant cousins and offer either to split the cost of the DNA test or pay for the whole thing yourself. I have had to pay for numerous tests to get this DNA project up and running. I had to do the same thing for the McKenzie DNA project.

                  Hi Karen, Yes there are a lot of mistakes in many of the genealogies posted at Ancestry.  Many of them declare siblings for Thomas Gillespie who married Naomi

                    Hi Karen,

                    Yes there are a lot of mistakes in many of the genealogies posted at Ancestry.  Many of them declare siblings for Thomas Gillespie who married Naomi Thompson and some even claim the names of his parents.  But I can tell you that even today, no siblings or parents for Thomas have been proven.  And there has been no record found as yet to document where Thomas was born - either in America or Ulster - or when he came to America if he was born in Ulster.  Or if he was born in Scotland.  DNA matches with other families all go back to Ulster - counties Armagh, Tyrone and Down. There is a match to one family that remained in Co. Down and claim to have escaped from Scotland to Co. Down @ 1715, but even they don't know where their family was in Scotland.  

                    If you go to the Y-RESULTS page for the Gillespie DNA Project and look at GROUP 1, you will see the families that are proven via DNA to be connected to Thomas Gillespie who married Naomi Thompson.  We were surprised by many of the matches.

                    Unfortunately for Gillespie researchers - especially those families that arrived during colonial times - those Gillespie families mostly came here from Ulster and gave their children similar first names.  This is one of the main reasons that genealogies prior to our DNA findings claimed that all of those early Gillespies were cousins.  And it also gave rise to the mix-up in genealogies.

                    These early Gillespies mostly came from Ulster, arrived in America, then followed similar migration paths.  But they were separate Y-DNA family lines.  Thomas Gillespie who married Naomi Thompson is not related to the family of the Gillespie Rifle Makers - our DNA GROUP 2.  And there are numerous other early Gillespie lines that have not been a match to these two well researched families.

                    Thomas and Naomi were in Augusta Co. VA, then Rowan Co. NC by 1745.  They did have a son named James.  He was born @ 1745, married Jane Graham and d. 1787 in Tennessee.  My ancestors are Thomas and Naomi through their son George b. 1751 who married Mary Graham.  George and Mary are buried in Sumner Co. TN.

                    We have done what we can with DNA to sort out the main families, but some are still lacking DNA tests.  All I can do is suggest that you do your best to find a documented male Gillespie descendant of your James and Margaret and their son Silas and ask them to take the DNA test.  And I would recommend that you find more than one descendant to test, as far from each other as possible, so the two tests can confirm each other.  Unrecorded adoptions, etc. can throw us a curve when we get DNA results.

                    Connie

                    Have DNA tests been submitted by know male line descendants of Silas? 
                    I am a descendant of the Hannah Agnes Gillespie listed below, a daughter of Silas. 
                    Do we know for sure what Gillespies were Silas' and James' ancestors?  I have James born abt. 1740 and Margaret as listed below, but beyond that I am unsure.  I am very new at all this.
                    I have seen at least 13 trees on ancestry.com (which we all know can be full of swiss cheese holes!!!) where James' parents are listed as Thomas Gillaspy/Gillespie and Naomi Thompson, but the birthplaces do not coincide with the history we have had given to us about the Bluford Island birth of Silas or even the birthplaces of James and Margaret.   I've seen tons of information about Thomas and Naomi all over this board, so I'm confident someone here can point me in the right direction :)

                    Any help you can provide would be so appreciated !
                    Thanks,
                    Karyn

That is why I asked Richard Gillespie to take the test and then found two other distant cousins to test for our line. You just have to search for some distant cousins and offer either to split the cost of the DNA test or pay for the whole thing yourself. I have had to pay for numerous tests to get this DNA project up and running. I had to do the same thing for the McKenzie DNA project.

He was of Irish decent and his paerent were James and Margeret were Scottish-Irish and came from Tyrone County in Ulster Northern Ireland. He and Margaret departed Yorkshire England, sometime between 1750-1770.Their son Silas was born on the way to America on Bluford Island as above notes.They then went to SC and on to Flat Rock in NC where James bought 100 acres of land in 1796. They had another son James Wilson, born 1784-1794. Silas married Polly Emaline Nial in 1790. Silas bought 200 acres on East Bull Creek for the sum of $100.00 in 1805. My family still lives in these areas and I am there often. My grandparents are married to two of the Gillespie children from Silas and Polly.
