My name is George Gilchrist. I am the son of Robert Gilchrist and Barbara Jean Parent. She was the oldest child of Douglas Parent and Ruby Jean Whitson. Ruby is the oldest daughter of Frank James Whitson and Daisy Effie Francis. Frank was a son of Sam Whitson and Martha Fletcher. I have information from my grandmother, Ruby, and I have a few census reports. I have several possible Whitson and Fletcher Census reports from Arkansas, Tennessee, and possibly other places, but I don't know if they fit with our group.
Census reports that I have for: 1880 Franklin, Marion County, Arkansas Samuel Whitson 1910 Union, Marion County, Arkansas Samuel Whitson 1920 Union, Marion County, Arkansas Martha Whitson
I have notes from a 1900 Water Creek Township, Marion County, Arkansas Census for Samuel Whitson, but don't have a copy.
I found the obits for Sam and Martha on the Marion county, AR site. They weren't much, but at least they were there. Also found the cemetery info for them there. I have a few photographs. One is a school class picture from when grandma was young.
I have Sam and Martha with 6 children, John, William, Louisa, Adelphia, Walter, and Frank.
Frank and Daisy had 13 children, Holeeta, Ruby, Lucian, Amos, Marvin, Orvan, Martha, Johnnie, Doreen, Shirley, Iva, Lloyd, and Lyle.
Douglas and Ruby had 9 children all of whom are still living except my mom Barbara.
Any additional info would be helpful. Thanks George firstname.lastname@example.org
