Searching for family of Dr. JOHN GILCHRIST (1792-1859), son of SAMUEL. He was a medical doctor from Goffstown, New Hampshire, who moved to Otonabee Township in 1825 from Cobourg, and established saw and grist-mills at Keene, on Lot 15, Con. 6. on the Indian River. He founded the Village of Keene, named for his childhood home in New Hampshire. He was married to LUCRETIA GORE, also from Goffstown. He established a medical practice in Peterborough in 1835, moved it to Port Hope in 1849, where he died in 1859. I am particularly looking for information on a brother or cousin, DANIEL GILCHRIST, who was in the Peterborough area in 1827. Another brother, JASON GILCHRIST, lived in Otonabee Township in the 1830's.
