      Will of John Gillaspie dated 12 Oct 1863, proved Dec. 1863, Bath Co. Names wife Margaret, seven children James T, Margaret V. Mitchel Willson, America Ann, Theodore Brown, John Layfayette, and Charles Davis Gillaspie.
      Exec: Andrew J. Willson. Witnesses, John B. Ayres and Wm. C. Burger.
      -- so Mary J. must've died between 1860 and 1863, and Charles Davis must've been born in that timeframe. Who are John W. and Anne in the 1860 census? Maybe a widowed sister-in-law and her son?
