In Reply to: Gillows of Lancashire by Kenneth Gillow of 91

Ken, we are cousins. Your grdfather Charles Gillow was my grt-uncle. I remember him visiting us. His sister, Lillie Gillow Haines (my grandmother: she raised her younger brothers along with her 14 children) told us the Gillows were from New York and if they still had the property today they would own the Brooklyn Bridge. Charles' father was John Gillow (b. NY, went to Minn, married,div, married again in Michigan), John's father was William, b. NY, and Wm's father was William Gillow, wife Mary,who are buried in Knettles Cemetary, NY, which you can easily bring up on line. There is other Gillow information in NY and a will from William. My daughter went to school in Lancashire, England, this past fall/winter & I dearly wanted to find a connection. She even studied about the Gillow furniture, but I couldn't find that link to Europe. What are you doing in Japan? I have been there 2x & have friends in Kasatsu. -Emily Haines Barberi
