Did more looking last night in Wake Co., NC..... and it appears all your Gilly 's family names were from Wake Co. NC......in fact an Elisha Spikes was there in 1800...along with the Joshua Todd (Winnie Todd Parish;s father) and this Elisha Spikes was still there in 1860 as was Peterson Spikes, Samantha Holland's father....by 1870 he was in Henry Co., Tennessee.....anyway Elisha Spikes wife in 1860 was named Gilly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....I'd bet that's where your Gillie's name came from....she was 70 and Elisha was 80 in 1860....the town was Raleigh, NC where they were living in 1860.....and since Samantha's middle name was "Holland Spikes.....I bet that family name enters into your line somewhere....there was also a William Parrish there in 1800 Wake co., NC....but can't connect him to your John T. Parish....will keep looking at Parish in Wake co., NC...feel like yours was there too...
