Marion & Nelda's Genealogy Pages

"To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die."

When we married in 1985, we united the Spires and the Gilchrist families, both of which have ties to North and South Carolina. Marion's mother was a Mobley. Nelda's mother was a Hildreth. We began in the summer of 1997 trying to find out as much about our ancestors as we could. Marion had cousins who had done some research to help us get started with the Spires. A family Bible helped supply some information about the Mobley family. A query at GenForum and a response by Carl Mobley who maintains the Mobley Surname Home Page has led to an incredible amount of information on the Mobley branch of the family.
Nelda thought she had very little to go on until a cousin contacted her with an abundance of information about the Gilchrists. Internet contacts with Hildreth cousins have greatly increased the data we have for that branch of the family. We have been avidly searching the internet for additional information on these and allied family names. In the future, we plan to visit family gravesites and research various archives for information.

Other surnames in our family trees include Anderson, Bailey, Blanton, Boutwell, Colvin, Cotter, Daniel, Davis, Dowling, Edge, Hays, Jamison, Mackey, Moncrief, Overton, Raynor, Rast, Read, Southall, Taylor, Twitty, Uzzell, Williams, and Wise. (Those which are underlined are links to other pages with additional information.)

If you have any information on these families we would appreciate you passing it on to
