I was researching a Alice Conroy born 1833, and found in a 1860 Independence, Jackson, Missouri census, A Thomas Gilchrist, age 41, merchant, born Ireland Lawrence Gilchrist age 19, Ireland maybe son, maybe brother?? Henry T. Gilcrist age 10 born Mo. Alice Conroy age 21, born Ireland, maybe daughter? Kate Conroy age 4 born Mo. daughter of Alice this family was listed as living in the same house. Later I also found a Civil War listing for Thomas and for Lawrence inlisting in the war around 1864. Does any of this sound familier??
I also found a marriage for a Alice gilchrist and thomas conroy in 1854, Clay Co.Missouri..I researching Thomas..
