The great Scottish Clans contain families who bore a different surname but were descended from the Chief through the female line. They are called SEPTS. Therefore anyone who has an ancestor bearing a Sept name or the Clan name itself has the privilege of wearing or displaying the Crest Badge and indeed only they may legitimately wear this authentic Scottish Ancient Device.

Tartans consist of broader bands of colour called the under check which are often decorated or embellished with narrower lines of colour called the over check.

From Genforum:

I believe I read on one of the other forums, that someone identified a possible wife of Robert as Agnes Russell? I descend from Robert's daughter Mary who married George Shawver in Botetourt Co., Va 14 March 1789. She is mentioned in his will, also signing as witnesses are one of George's sisters, Elizabeth (Shawver) Harnberger/Hamberger and Judith (Carpenter)Shaver (wife of Jacob Shawver). Would love to know who the other signers are--Joseph Haynes and Archibald Linocher. Wonder if they, too, were related?

On the Judith Carpenter: Her father was Joseph Carpenter and her mother was Leah --?-Leah's will was probated in Ohio in 1806, naming heirs as Judy Shaver wife of Jacob Shawver, and grandchildren: Polly Gillespie, and Becky and Leah Shawver. Does this help anyone out there? Who was Polly Gillespie? She is mentioned first so might have been eldest of the grandchildren.

_______________________

Roben(Robert)Gillespy arrived in Virginia (now West Virginia) in 1749 and had eight children - William, Isabel, Mary, Roben C., John, James, Alexander and Gean (Jean). I am a decendent of Alexander followed by Samuel Gillespie, then Joseph Gillespie, Byron Gillespie, and my father Homer Gillespie.Could it be a coincendence? We always thought Robert was from Scotland.

Correction to Ginger's #5 child, Mary. Mary Gillespy married George Shawver 14 March 1789 Botetourt County, Va.
Robert Gillespy's will was witnessed by
(1)Joseph Haynes,
(2)Archibald Linocker,
(3)Elizabeth Harnberger(or Hamberger, a daughter of Sebastien Shawver and sister of George, Mary's husband) and
(4)Judith Shaver(Carpenter-dau of Joseph Carpenter & Leah--? and wife of Jacob Shawver)
wonder if any of these were related to his wife, since most of these families intermarried? There were several families of Russells in this area too, Ginger may know by power of elimination, or power of further information.
James Gillespy was issued a land patent 6 April 1769 "50 acres on James River joining to a tract formerly surveyed for Robert Gillespy" Robert was granted 80 acres on 20 June 1772. Does anyone know about a father of these two, or was James, perhaps the father? brother? Were either of these in the Rev War? Have just started working on this line and I am in need of major help.
