I am searching for information on Gillespies of Mecklenberg, NC. In the will of Joseph Gillespie, probated 1800 in Mecklenberg, NC, he lists a niece - Sarah Alexander.
His wife is Ruth (not mother of his children). He also lists sons James, John, Joseph, Jacob, Alexander, William and a daughter - Martha Gillespie Williamson. His grandaughter is Nancy Robison Williamson. Witnesses are Joseph Latta and William Hamilton.
Does anyone know how Sarah Alexander is related to Joseph Gillespie?
