guess our January thaw in CT was short-lived & now over LOL.... we're now under a winter storm warning from midnight tonight (Sun.) through 7 PM Monday - a powerful winter storm expected to leave us with 8 to 14 inches of snow! Bet the kids'll have another snow day tomorrow.
Wehere in the Norwich area don't always get as much snow as all around us but at my new place in Lyme it usually gets socked in good! (or bad as one sees it!)
Its going to be a fine day today, in the low 60s.
Today it is beautiful here too but tonite all heck is going to break loose.
Tonight just stay in bed and turn up the tv :) and heat.
Such a beautiful day w/44 degrees I took a long walk in the woods. My dog loves it.
I am sending good thoughts your way. I am glad you have capable doctors and you have a great attitude. Let us know if there is anything we can help you do.
A little birdy told me today is your birthday! ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AX!!!! May you be blessed with many more happy & healthy years to come :-)
Your birthday, and you didn't tell us? HAPPY BIRTHDAY. HOw old r u now!?
I am the same age that Jack Benny used to be.
Ya,right,me too. 39 and holding, I wish!
At USGENWEB for York Co,NB I found death records for Osa, Edith and a William. Also found there was an Elwood C. Gilliland living in York who was (b) 1870 in IL. Do u have all this already?
That should be York,NE not NB.
When the warm weather gets here I want to drive up and meet u. How do I get to your town?
I'sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, I turned my computer off early last night and just now got back on it. I received you e-mail site with the pictire of George F. Gilliland, and had no trouble openig it. Too bad it's not my George, this one was born in Ohio. Thanks anyway, it's a good picture. And Happy Birthday.
No, I don't have any of that, I knew when Osa died but not Edith. I don't have a William in my records, but he could be one of the family. Edward Gilliland born in Il I doubt. Could you give me the date Edith died? Thanks.
Well thats to bad the pics didnt match anything, maybe next time. MR. B will be having a Bday in abt a month.
Happy Birthday. Hope your wife is doing well.
She is doing a lot better, thank you. I just cant seem to get her to go out coyote hunting with me.:(
~~~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR AX ~~~HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU ~~~
Thank you very much. How ya doin today ?
She has great taste. Ya wanna get some coyotes here... just kidding but they swim the river and join us at night.
I havent been able to go shooting in over a month and a half, maybe in a couple more weeks.
Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to AX. Happy Birthday to you.
Edith Belle Gilliland (b) Nov.3,'02 died Ap.27,'33. I guess these dates r 1900's. Names associated w/her such as maiden etc are Wright and Smith. I found an Edith B. Wright living in York County earlier who fit her as to age. That one was (b) in Indiana. Osa Jane Gilliland Mar.17,'68 to Feb.13,'32 names associated are Crane and Beck. William H. Gilliland Sept. 10,'62 to Nov.12,'29 names associated are Holloch and Randal.
What is Edith's connection? I haven't seen u mention an Edith before. The other was not an Edward but an Elwood C. and names associated w/him were Smith,Berkey and Phillippi. He was found earlier but I can'r remember much about him but he was found as Elwood C. Gilliland born in ILL. in 1870.
I only had Edith's middle initial whish was B. so The Edith belle gilliland you found is the right one. Her maiden name was Wright, and she was John Gilliland's first wife. John was the son Of George and Osa Gilliland. And you have the right Osa too, Her name was Osa Jane (Crane) Gilliland, parents John M. Crane and Angeline Beck. I don't have the names of Edith's parents, or John's second wife. I don't think William or Edward Gilliland are related, but I will write them down for further reference. They may be from another branch of the Gilliland family. Thanks for this additional information.
Found this at LDS: William Halleet Gilliland (b) Sept.10,1862 in Cape Girardeau,Missouri to Edward Jackson Gilliland and Margaret Lucinda Randal.
I found Edith w/her parents before she married and will post that info.
Once again it is Not EDWARD but ELWOOD.
Edith's parents were Alanson and Anna Wright both born in Indiand he about 1870 and she about 1871. Alanson had a brother Henry living w/then in 1910.
That is both born in Indiana.
Edith was born in Indiana but they were in Neb. by the time (1910) Edith was 7.
Found this: John J. Gilliland born Jan.17,1904 in Neb. died in L.A.,Calif. Nov.7,1971. This matches your John who was age 6 in April 1910 when census was taken.
Edith died in 1933 and in 1930 they had been married less than a year so maybe she died giving birth. Do u know if John and Edith had kids? Or if John and his second wifehad kids?
The information I have of where John Gilliland died must be wrong, since you found this. What i have is that he died in Bradshaw, York Co., Nebraska. Yes, John and Edith had a daughter Arlyss date of birth inknown, who married John Tombarge and who lived in Ohio. John and his 2nd wife supposedly had more children, but I have nothing about them. John ran the delivery truck to the farms and graduated from Bradshaw high School in 1922. I wonder when he moved to Calif.?
Arlyss and John live in Delaware,Ohio right now and if u post your email I will send their phone number.
Arlyss G. Tombarge born May 1931.
I have posted my e-mail. Thank you for finding this.
just read the post and wanted to say you are in my prayers that laughter comes often, smiles greet you everywhere and that the love and care we feel for you can be felt each day and offer some support to you. God does indeed work in our lives and that is proven all the time from the people in this very community. And Ax I hope your wife is doing and will continue to be better.
Happy Birthday, ax. May you have a wonderful year in front of you. My younger son's birthday was today also. He was 40, and didn't take it well - bless him! I asked him how the heck he thought I felt with my third child turning 40!
