The birth place of Thomas Gillespie is not certain. It has been suggested that he was born in either Cecil County, Maryland, or Chester County, Pennsylvania, by Robert W. Ramsay in his book "Carolina Cradle," because many of the settlers of Rowan County came from that area to North Carolina. A great grandson of Thomas and Naomi named George C. Duffee said in an article in the "The Mississippi Genealogical Exchange", Volume Five, November 4, of December 1959 on page 103, "My grandfather, John Gillespie, was the son of Thomas Gillespie and Naomi great grandfather, Thomas Gillespie, came from North Ireland; and was an Elder in the Presbyterian Church. Naomi Thompson, my great grandmother came from Pennsylvania."

Year of Birth and years married: On page 4 of the Thyatira Presbyterian Church booklet, "Died at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday the 15th of December, 1796, Mrs. Naomi Gillespie, aged 69; at 10 O'clock the same evening, Thomas Gillespie aged 76. They were the first settlers in Rowan County on the West side of the Yadkin River, and lived in the strictes bond of matrimonial friendship for a space of 51 years." This makes the birth year for Thomas at 1720, Naomi at 1727 and married in 1745. The perpetual calendar places the 15th of December 1796 on Thursday not Tuesday. Robert W. Ramsey, on page 40 of his book, "Carolina Cradle" cites the birth of Thomas as 1719 from his tombstone. Descendants have used 1719 for Thomas and 1728 for Naomi, in lineage pagers. Their six sons carried them to the grave and buried them in the same casket. In addition on their tombstone is this "They were close friends and kindred," which opens up the possibility that they were somehow related.

The only clue to Thomas Gillespie's father is from the same article by George C. Duffee and he "heard that the father of Thomas was David." John W. D. Wright leaned toward a Robert Gillespie as his father. No proof of that. Thomas Gillespie was not the son of the Rev. George Gillespie, pastor of Head of Christiana Church in Delaware. He had only two sons and neither was Thomas.

There is little doubt that Naomi's maiden name was Thompson. Her son John Gillespie named one of his daughters Naomi Thompson Gillespie and her grandson Thomas L. Gillespie, son of George Gillespie, named one of his daughters Naomi Thompson Gillespie. It is doubtful they would have done this had it not been her name. Nothing has been learned as to the identity of her parents.

There was a Robert Gillespie in Rowan County who may have been related to Thomas. There was a John Gillespie, cooper, also in Rowan, who may have been a cousin. There was also a Samuel H. Gillespie who was buried in Thyatira Cemetery as was Thomas and Naomi Gillespie. There was a Matthew Gillespie in Rowan County in early 1750s and 1760s whose identity is unknown. A Joseph Gillespie was in the area at the the same time. Sorting these six men out has proved unsuccessful thus far.

In the Land Office Patents and Grants, Virginia, card 59, a record was found which showed that Thomas Glassbey (sic Gillespie) on 1st of December 1740, Augusta County received 400 acres on a draft of the north river of Shanando called the Long Glade. Patent No. 19, 1739-41, p. 902. From a typed copy of the original document we learn that he paid forty shillings of good and lawful money for this land. The land was bounded on the west by Long Glade and on the east by Naked Creek. This is in the northern part of Augusta County. This is the first legal document on him and places him in Augusta by December 1740.

A source has been found for militia service for Thomas Gillespie: "Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia," Volume II by Lyman Chalkley. From the Preston Papers held by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, copies of Musters of Augusta County, begin on page 507. On page 508, Captain John Smith's List: reports Thomas Gillespie. The date of the service was 1742. One Gillespie descendant said Thomas got a land grant in Anson County, NC in 1751 for this sevice. (This land grant has not been proven.) A copy of the handwritten muster roll (a list) was abtained from the above mentioned Historical Society.

A marriage date of 1 January 1745, for Thomas Gillespie and Naomi Thompson, has been cited in two references but no proof has been found to substantiate this.
1) Information from Jimmie Moore, Tennessee which may have been from David W. Morgan, Cedar Park, Texas. (Note: David doesn't know Jimmie Moore) "Thomas was born 1719 in either Cecil Co., Maryland or Chester Co., PA, and married Naomi Thompson 1-1-1745 in the "Valley of Virginia" with the ceremony performed by Rev. John Craig." (Note: Rev. Craig was pastor of the Tinkling Spring Presbyterian Church in Augusta County, Virginia from 1740-1764, as found in "The Tinkling Spring; Headwater of Freedom" by Howard McKnight Wilson, Th.D.) (Note: The marriage date of 1-1-1745 came from an addenda that Dr. L. A. Absher sent out with his book, "Some Early Settlers of Upper Sumner County, Tennessee," who stated that the information came from "Mrs. Louise Gillespie Lynch of Franklin, Tennessee." I note that Louise Lynch is listed as the archivist of Williamson County on the Williamson County GenWeb site. Anybody want to contact her? David W. Morgan)
2) Information from "Lentz and Gillespie Families in Rowan County, North Carolina 1749-1818" by Gilbert G. Lentz, 1994, page 5, says: "Thomas Gillespie, 1727-1796 (sic. birth year was 1719), married Naomi Thompson, January 1, 1745." Source not cited. At the time they died they had been married 51 years which figures out to be 1745.

One man suggested that maybe Thomas was not born here but came from Northern Ireland or Scotland as a child or young man.

Probably Thomas Gillespie came from the area around Cecil County, Maryland or Chester County, PA, as many of the Rowan County settlers were from that area. Then he migratd into the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and was in the Augusta County, Virginia area for a few years. A Thomas Gillespie presented a James for baptism on 18 March 1844, at the Timkling Springs Presbyterian Church in Augusta, County, which is prior to the marriage of Thomas and Naomi This assumes that our Thomas was the father of the James who was baptized, which I doubt. There was a William presented for baptism on 18 October 1847 by a Thomas but his name does not appear in Thomas Gillespie's will and from information in the "Carolina Cradle" by Robert W. Ramsey, page 41, it is explained that this William was an orphan of William Humphrey, deceased. Thomas would have removed William from the Colony but was ordered by the court to deliver said orphan to the church wardens. (Records of Augusta County, 1, 31.) Note, it is believed that these people who were baptized were in the family of Thomas and Eleanor Gillespie who were also in Augusta County at the same time.

Thomas and Naomi Gillespie migrated into Rowan County North Caroina. They were the first white family west of the Yadkin River. The Gillespie farm was on Sills Creek. The "Carolina Cradle," page 41, footnote 107.

On GenForum, a man said that Thomas Gillespie was a part of the Nottingham Colony. I set out to check that out and a man said he had the Buffalo Presbyterian Church book in Guilford, NC...the church that was formed by the Rising Sun Presbyterian Church in Cecil Co., In the index we find Col. Daniel, Daniel, Jr., Daniel D., Dr. Rev. E. Eugene, Col. John, Mrs. Nancy, Jr., and Robert. There is a picture of Col. Daniel (1743-1829). However...the Col. John Gillespie "was born in 1741 in Frederick Co, VA and came here (Guilford Co in 1762, etc) according to Pollard Gillespie, the deeds were dated December 1753 but Thomas was there before 1750, so I don't see how he could have been a part of that and his name is not listed either.

He served as a Commissary in the Revolutionary War under General Rutherford and received quite a lot of bounty land for his service in what is now Tennessee. According to one source, he bought up other bounty land in the same areas. Five of his sons received part of this land in his will. Each son's history will have what he received in the way of land. Son, George had his own land grant for his service in the War.

Information from booklet about the Thyatira Church;, "The Carolina Cradle," by Ramsey; and from a book by John W. D. Wright entitled, "Archibald Gillespie in California," and the section entitled, "The Gillespie Family Through Twelve Generations. Some information from descendants and the Will of Thomas Gillepsie. There are errors in Mr. Wright's book.

The only census record which Thomas appears on is the 1790 Rowan County Census North Carolina, page 177, in the Salisbury District.

Thomas Gillespie made his will on 15 November 1796 in Rowan County, North Carolina. It is recorded in Will Book G, pages 3 and 4. In it he names his children and disposes of his property. Witnessed by Thomas Irvin and Philip Palmer.
