Gilmer Family Genealogy Forum
I am looking for information to link the Plain Dealing, Louisiana Gilmers to those in Georgia. I need to verify if James Gilmer was Geo. Rockingham Gilmer's son, and if James had descendents in Bossier County who may have inherited the remnants of the plantation. Our grandfather, Thomas Meriweather Gilmer, born about 1900 was a small and poor white farmer in the area, his son named James Gilmer suggests a link. Also, the link to gambling as "plain dealing" fits with family rumors of former grandeur lost to gambling.
Any assistance would be most appreciated.
