Good Morning Doug, Thanks very much for the reply.I made contact with CjLee & he also confirmed my suspicions that they were related families. Sorry you are going to have to put your mother in the nursing home.Fortunatly I didn't have to make that tough decision for my mother.
I am about to wrap up what I am doing in the research of the Gillespie family which includes the McBains, & will be turning the information over to Milton & Marilyn Odell Gillespie. Marilyn became very interested in what I found & I am sure would be glad to learn more about her ancestors and to recieve any photos you could share with her. I have a scanner & can change pictures from the email to jpg, so they can be reduced to printable size.if you don't have one.
I will give her a copy of your email & give you her email ad ress so you can correspond with her if you like. if not I will be more than happy to pass on any info. you may want to send thru me. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org
