Entry for March 13, 2007
A few days ago, I was contacted by David Kilgour, who lives in Canada. He had read a post of mine on the KILGOUR message board about the Robert KILGOUR and Mary MCINDOE family of Neilston, Renfrewshire, Scotland. They were the parents of George GILGOUR, 2nd husband of Margaret (Francis) LUDLAM GILGOUR. The entry about them can be found in the annotated edition, http://www.geocities.com/seventyyearsinthecoalmines/syitcmtext.htm, in footnote #11 on page 15.







David thinks that the parents of Robert KILGOUR were Samuel KILGOUR, born in 1796 in Ireland, and his wife, Martha WALKER, born 1791 in Ireland. Although he has no direct proof, he wrote that there was only one KILGOUR family in Neilston during that time period. Therefore, it is very likely that Robert was their son. Other children of Samuel and Martha were: Samuel b. 1816; Helen b. 1821; Joseph b. 1823; and Mary.







I was also able to trace some of the later descendants of the Robert and Mary (McIndoe) KILGOUR family in Schuylkill County, PA. The family's name underwent a gradual transition from KILGOUR to GILGOUR to GILGORE. An outline descendant tree of the family is shown below:
