I have just begun to search for my Gilder ancestors after finally locating my 3rd greatgrandmother and her family. Her name was "Leticia" (or Latticia or Laticia) Lyon(s?) Gilder, living in Marengo County in 1840, next to Preston Gilder, for whom I have much infomation. I am under the impression that she was, in 1840, a widow of one of Preston's relatives, but am unable to discern his name. Her daughter Ann Eliza, my 2nd Greatgrandmother, was married in Marengo County in 1847 to Thomas Rodwell, and they settled in Chickasaw Co., MS. By 1850, Ann's mother, Leticia, is living in Chickasaw next door to the Rodwells. Her last name was then spelled "Guilder". She owns a farm, was said to have been born in SC, is also on the slave index as a slave owner, and has the following children: Malaci, age 22; William E., age 17; Luisa J. age 15; Abner, age 13; and Julia A., age 11. All traces of this family seem to disappear after 1850. I have spent many days attempting to find the father of this Gilder family, and their location after 1850. If any of those names sound familiar to you, or are contained within your pamphlets, I would be grateful for your help. I have much information on her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren I would be willing to share. Thanks so much for any help in solving this mystery. Rebecca Humphreys
