Biography

Nancy Alletha Gilcrease was born 9 Oct 1847. She was the daughter of Edmond Missen Gilcrease and Mary Inglet. (This family experienced name spelling changes through the years. Records are found in many variations and descendents use several variations, including Kilcrease, Gilcrease, Gilchrist, Gilchrest, and Gilcrest.)[1] [2]

She first married John A. Gilcrease on 5 May 1865. Their last names were the same and it is possible they were related but a common ancestor is not currently known. [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8][9] Together that had at least seven children: John William , Edmund Messer , Averilla, Seth Ambrose , Francis Matilda , and two other children who died young and whose names are not known.

After John's death, Nancy married Andrew J. Drury , a Civil War Veteran, on 14 Jan 1885. They are enumerated together in the 1900 United States Census for Clarke County, Alabama, along with Nancy's daughter, Francis M. [10]

Andrew Jackson Drury died on 30 Mar 1903 in Clarke County, Alabama.[11]

In 1910, Nancy was widowed and was living with her son Edmund Messer Gilchrist .[12]

In 1920, she was living with her daughter Francis Matilda Gilchrist Mott. [13]

She passed away about 1920, according to her gravemarker, and is buried at Magnolia Cemetery, Grove Hill, Clarke County, Alabama. [14]

    (Note: This census record contains some inaccuracies but I do believe it is the census record of this John A. Gilchrist. There are similar discrepancies in the record of his brother/neighbor Bart Gilchrist, so it's possible the information was supplied by someone who didn't know the families' details well.)

Gilcrease-73 and Gilchrest-42 appear to represent the same person because: I know we have name differences, but that's because the name Gilchrest/Gilcrease/Gilchrist appears so many different ways on so many different records, but these two women are the same person--they married the same men, had the same children, had the same parents. Please read my biography of Gilcrease-73 and reconsider the merge you previously rejected. By the way, we are cousins according to our genealogies and DNA.
