BAKER, GARRISON, GILLESPIE, HALL posted by Midge Garza on Friday, December 19, 1997

Does anyone know these people?

My gg-grandmother, Frances Patterson GILLESPIE BAKER, widow
of Joseph M. BAKER, brought her five children from Randolph
Co. Alabama, to Bryan, Texas in 1867, where I believe she
set up a boarding house.

Until I saw the following information, I couldn't figure out
why she chose Bryan. These must be relatives.

"Bryan TX, Brazos Co.: Mrs. J.C. GILLESPIE-d. Nov. 26, 1897,
age 78 years; Ella GILLESPIE - wife of Dr. F.M. HALL, d.
Sept. 26, 1886, age 43 years; J.C. GILLESPIE - d. Oct. 26,
1899, age 88 years, 9 months, 18 days; Bettie M. GILLESPIE,
b. Sumnter Co. AL, Nov. 25, 1845, d. Bryan, TX, April 13,

Frances was the daughter of John Patterson GILLESPIE

Any hints, clues or other information would be appreciated.

Thank you!
