My g-g-grandfather, Matthew Gillaspy Carrico, was born in about 1809/1810 in Spencer County, Kentucky. (In earlier years the Carrico families were from Maryland.) I cannot locate his birth parents.

I'm wondering in the Gillaspy middle name may tie to other ancestors (such as maternal grandparents) - and provide some clue to his parents and grandparents.

Does anyone have information about Gillaspy families in Kentucky (or Maryland) in the late 1700s or early 1800s? By any chance, do you see any connection to the Carrico surname?

Any clues would be greatly appreciated.
