Biography

Archibald Gillespie was born on Apr 15, 1812 in Rowan County, North Carolina, United States[1]. Archibald's parents were Thomas C. Gillespie and Margaret Flora McKay.[2] Archibald married Druscilla S. (or L.) Gray on Feb 4, 1840 (marriage bond dated Jan 8, 1840 and wedding reported to be on Feb 4, 1840) in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, USA. Archibald died on Nov 4, 1872 in Rowan County, North Carolina, United States.[3] The burial location for Archibald has, at this time, not been discovered. However, he may be buried in an unmarked grave at the Back Creek Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Mt. Ulla.[4]

After his wife's death in May of 1857, Charlotte H. Gray (b. 1834) was staying in Archibald's household in 1860 and 1870, probably to help with the seven children. She may have been a sister or sister in law to Druscilla.[5]

There were two black farm laborers living with the family in 1870 (Fathour Sam and Rankin Watt.).[20]
