not related to my art work, genealogy is a passion of mine. In short order
you will be able to download numerous letters that were written by my GGGGGrandfather
in Cornwall England to my GGGGrandmother in Marietta Ohio. Some of these letters
are nearly 200 years old.
And....like all good genealogy
freaks, here is a list of some of the surnames that I am researching.
HYRE, TERRY, CORWIN, STIMSON, SHEPPARD, METCALF, GILLET, ROUTLEDGE, JACKSON,
COLLIER, HIGHBAUGH, MANNING, BURCH, BUTTS, HANKS
letter by Thomas Gillet dated September 3, 1831 written from Turo. Click on
the thumbnail to see a larger version and right-click on that to download that
version. Hopefully you can read and print the larger version.
A letter from Elizabeth Gillet
to her brother James dated 6 DEC 1852. She obviously never sent it as it was
in her possesion.
A letter sent by James Gillet
to his Sister Elizabeth before she came to America. His address is listed
as Clifford's Inn and she is in New Castle upon Tyne at this point.
