Jennie Gillanders Strader

Miss Jennie Gillanders, twin sister of Mary Ann Gillanders,born 11 Oct 1868,[1][1] daughter ofJames Gillanders and Ann Jane (Moore) Gillanders, both natives of County Monaghan, Ireland. Her twin sister died when they were just a few months old[2]and mother died when she was 4 years old.Her two brothers Robert Gillanders & John Gillanders and her half-brother Matthew Gillanders all died from diphtheria when she was 18. At the age of 20 she came to America and was living in New Jersey when she married Ulysses Grant Strader, son of John and Margaret (Space) Strader. [3]

Since her husband's sickness and death, Mrs. Strader has taken full charge of all business affairs, and has managed well beyond the capacity and success of the average woman. Besides the eighty-acre home-place, she owns a tract of forty acres adjoining, making 120 acres which she controls and operates. Her seven children have rendered her valuable assistance.


  1. Estella is the wife of Frank F. Brown, and the mother of two children, and resides at Modesto.
  2. Emmeline married Robert Gottlieb, by whom she has had two children ; they reside at Fresno, where Mr. Gottlieb has the San Joaquin Dental Laboratories.
  3. Russell, the third in the order of birth, who was born on January 26, 1896, died on September 21, 1911.
  4. Gladys M. is a graduate of the Modesto Business College, where she was also formerly a teacher, and was employed by the American National Bank of Modesto as expert accountant, until her marriage to John H. Pitman of San Francisco. Spencer, a graduate of the Modesto High School, with the class of '20, recently entered the University of California as a student in the electrical engineering department.
  5. Norman attend the high school at Modesto.
  6. Audrey attend the high school at Modesto.

Of such a promising, accomplishing and devoted family, any parent may well be proud. Mrs. Strader has always taken an active part in church and Sunday school work and is now superintendent of Central Sunday school. She also continues the raising of high grade stock. [4]

Added birth reference. Had a twin sister Mary Ann. Mother cited as Ann Jane Moore.

I accepted the merge of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Gillanders-25 and https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Gillanders-20 but there appeared to be conflicting data over her mother. I assume since Ann Jane Moore is James' second wife that the mother of Jane Gillanders was James' first wife Lizzie Gillanders

I have James Gillanders (b. 1842) and Ann Jane MOORE (his 2nd wife)as part of 'my tree' but do not have information about James Gillander's mother, Jane ROSS. Do you have any information regarding the parents or siblings for Jane ROSS please? Elizabeth Gresty, Western Australia
