Gillespie's in Georgia
I am looking for the family of Earl Elias
"Dutch" Gillespie, who married Eula Dowdy.
the only dates and locations I have is that
the oldest child, Ernest Fletcher Gillespie
was born in 1918 in Easley, S.C. All the
other children: Fermon Elias (9/18/1925)
Mildred Gillespie Harlan(6/25/1923), Doc Earl Gillespie and Robert Gillespie (8/28/1928) were also born in Easley.Dutch and Eula
both died when the children were very young
and the children remember very little. The
children were reared by brothers and sisters
of Eula except for Doc who lived with a
Gillespie uncle.My mother and Eula share the same Father but different Mothers. Eula's
mother was Harriett Sullivan and her father
Robert M. Dowdy.
