I am currently updating my book "Sawdust & Cider; A History of Lorane, Oregon and the Siuslaw Valley" that was originally published in 1987. Marcellus Gillespie lived in an area near Lorane that is called "Gillespie Corners" and I would like to include a family history on Cell Gillespie and his wife Lavina. I understand that they adopted a daughter, Ella, too (1930 census). I included a picture of "Cell" Gillespie on horseback on a cattle drive in the original 1987 book, but did not have a family history for him. If anyone can provide any information on him and his family while living in the Coyote/Lorane area, I would really like to get it... pictures, too. Unfortunately, I will be submitting the book to the publisher within the month of June, so I need to get new material in right away.
My email address for this purpose is email@example.com
