The Genealogy of Laura Cecile Donald Gillespie of Rockbridge, Virginia (1877 - 1964)

This is an example of a "Cousin Bait" page.

If I publish what I know about my great grandmother, then maybe I can find other relatives who know something I do not.

Laura Cecile Donald was born February 13, 1877 in Rockbridge County, Virginia.  

She was the youngest daughter of James Calvin Donald and Elizabeth Jane Wallace.

She married Wyatt Paul Gillespie in 1894 in Lexington Virginia.  Wyatt was the son of Jeremiah and Mary (Gillespie) Gillespie.  

She and Wyatt had 10 children.

She died August 1964.

Let's Start Baiting Cousins!

I've created this blog to illustrate how to set up a new blog so people can post about their families as "cousin bait" to hopefully find other distant cousins.

Let's get started!
